The luxury of having toast and egg for breakfast as I have been doing on Step 3 (1000 calories) of the Cambridge diet has ended…for now.
Things have been a bit slow on the weight loss front, so I’ve decided to shake things up a little bit.
Today, I have stepped down to Step 2 of the Cambridge diet, eating 810 calories daily which constitutes: three Cambridge weight plan products, 300 ml of semi-skimmed milk (I couldn’t stomach 425 ml of skimmed milk so worked out the semi-skimmed milk calorie equivalent), 80g of vegetables from a list of allowed vegetables and a measured amount of protein from an allowed list, in my case, usually 2 eggs or 245g of skinless chicken breast or 275g of white fish or 250g of seafood. To up my fibre intake, I use Cambridge fibre and I also start the day with a heaped teaspoon of psyllium husk powder which I mix into milk from my allowance, I tablet of canderel and some cinnamon powder which makes it a pleasant experience.
So here are some wonderful targets to aim for:
Lose another 1.5 kg (3.3 pounds) – 5 stone total loss (32 kg; 70.4 pounds)
Lose another 7 kg (15.2 pounds) – Lowest weight since I was about 20 years old!
Lose another 16.5 kg (36 pounds) – Lowest weight since I was 18 years old! This might be the target to end this journey on or one to hit and carry on until I can be called ‘skinny’ for the first time since I was a child.
I will treat today like Day 1 of my diet.
100% all the way.
Hitting the first of these targets will be totally awesome.
Nothing or no one, including myself should stand in my way.
I can do this.
I can totally do this.
