A Chance to Start Again – Day One

1 Comment

Happy New Year!!!

It’s day one of my four-month long “restricted” diet. I’m doing this for health reasons but I’ll be happy to lose the muffin top and extra 3-4kgs I’ve been packing for two months.

Day one has been ok. I did have a slight headache for most of the day but nothing too severe. I feel fine and not at all struggling. In my experience, it’s after 2-3 weeks that become difficult. Anyway, here’s the facts and figures for the day.

Weight: 51.3kg


  • Oatmeal with organic sultanas, chia seeds and cinnamon. Made with water.
  • Decaf coffee, black
  • One Bromelain Supplement
  • One 1000mg Vitamin C


  • an apple
  • 1/3 cup of mixed seeds and almonds
  • water

Lunch and afternoon grazing (I didn’t have a proper lunch only because I was at work)

  • 1/2 head of lettuce
  • a mandarin
  • a kiwi fruit
  • water
  • 1000mg Vitamin C


  • Brown rice with carrot, green capsicum, organic sun-dried tomatoes, Braggs Seasoning
  • Lettuce
  • Rooibos tea
  • 1000mg Vitamin C

Physically: I felt slightly hungry in the afternoon and now at bedtime. I’ve had a headache since mid-day but not painful enough to require pain relief.

I’ll have to eat more and plan more to be successful, this I know!! I hate going to bed hungry.

So far, it’s been easy peasy but I’ll take each day as it comes…..
