Yes, I’m still on the Fast Diet. It was going quite well (5lbs loss) until I got engaged (eeeeekkk!) which is pretty much an excuse to eat out and drink champagne as much as possible for a minimum of two weeks. The diet went out of the window. But now with a wedding to slim into (eeeeeekkk!) I’m more determined than ever so shed a few more pounds.
This post is designed to prove that, even on such a restricted diet, you don’t need to give up your favourite guilty pleasure foods.
A closet fan of the potato waffle, I really fancied some comfort food today and devised the following Fast Diet version of the rather naughty fry up:
- 2 x Birds Eye Potato Waffles, grilled (210 calories – don’t go for the own brand version, they have nearly double the calories for some reason)
- 1 x slice of boiled ham (35 calories)
- 1 x 150g tin of Heniz Baked Beans (109 calories)
- 3 x grilled mushrooms with a sprinkling of oregano (48 calories)
Total calories = 402
That still left a few calories for a little snack at work. I realise this might not be the healthiest use of my 500 calorie intake, but my Fast Diet fry up hit the spot today.
