So I’ve survived my first day on unislim. It went absolutely fine.

I was prepared and that always helps.

All lean meats and poultry are free on US once the fat is trimmed off.

All veg is free, most fruits are free except the high sugar ones.

There is a carb allowance once I stick to the guidelines I’m ok.

All extras have a YUM value.

So here’s what I ate.

For breakfast I had an omelette

1 egg, peppers, mushrooms, tomato, onion & spinach. All free.

With a 30g slice of wholemeal toast.

I weighed my slice of bread and it was 40g so I cut the top off.

Portion control is crucial for weight loss. In my experience I have only ever lost weight when I have been mindful of my portions.

I used a teaspoon of ballymaloe relish this was 1 yum.

For lunch I took a chicken salad with me to work.

It was 3/4 of a medium chicken fillet.

There is no limits to the amount of lean chicken you can have on US but I felt this was plenty for me.

foodsSalad was spinach, cucumber, onion peppers and a few grapes.

I was allowed 60g of carbs here too but I didnt feel I needed anymore food so I didn’t bother.

I had kept the other 1/4 for my 11 am snack.

I also took a hard boiled egg, & 30g cashew nuts as snacks.

The cashew nuts are yummed at 2&1/2 Yums.

The grapes are 1/2 yum for 15.

I split them between my salad and my snack.

I am highly sensitive  to sugar & my body reacts to it by craving intensely.

Any sugary snack will send me crazy.

That’s the reason why I use nuts as a snack they are high in protein but also high in calories.

Once I weigh them they are perfectly fine.

I also took a few strawberries and grapes as a little dessert.

So around 4.30 pm I was feeling peckish again.

This is where I had my nuts and a hard boiled egg with a glass of sparkling water.

I got home from work about 6.45 or so.

I had an apple and a cup of tea with skimmed milk while I was making dinner.

We had garlic and oregano chicken from the U.S book.

I wouldn’t usually eat chicken twice in one day but they were in the fridge ready to go.

Cover 2 chicken fillets in oregano and fresh garlic add a drop of water.

Marinade for 20 mins.

Bake at 200degrees for 20 mins or until cooked through.

There was 2 potatoes left from the night before so I chopped them up, added a few herbs with 1 cal spray and a bit of Franks hot sauce (free) And baked them for 15 minutes or until crispy.

I threw a bit of salad in a bowl and voila Dinner was ready.

Even Mr Dillon thought it was lovely.

My yum allowance is 7 do I’ve only used 4.

I also earned 4 Yums by walking for an hour.

All in all the day went great & im certainly not hungry.

Looking forward to tomorrow already.
