Sorry for repetitive posts, but I’ll keep this one short.
I mentioned in Grub Up that Hubby was intending to eat the same foods as me this week to see if he lost any weight.
As of today, he’s going back to normal eating for several reasons:
1. He’s nearly always hungry.
2. He’s not a fan of fruit (unless in a meringue nest or two covered in quark)
3. He’s food bored.
4. He enjoys veg, but doesn’t want to turn into one.
5. He misses chocolate.
6. He’s put on four pounds.
What can I say?
Ok, he’s had the odd biscuit
packet or two, toast or sandwiches, extra cereal to his B allowance, and I have been giving him a slightly larger portion of the main meal having the extra veg myself, but at the end of the day, the dish is made from scratch with healthy ingredients.
Whilst SW does not count calories, it is important to weigh or measure your A and B options as well as your syns. Hubby’s weight is pretty stable, and this week has been more of an experiment to see if it’s what I’m eating that has caused ME to put on weight over the past two weeks.
Keeping a dual style food diary has been interesting too, so as from Wednesday, I shall not only be keeping a record of the meals I have, but listing everything in groups of Speed Food, Free Food and syns because maybe that’s where I’ve been going wrong. Although I’ve been eating a lot of fruit, bananas, blueberries, mangoes, pineapples and grapes although Free, are not Speed food.
