Now I'm getting into the swing of this liver shrinking diet and things are starting to flow more, I'm realising the difference a little bit more protein makes. Yes, I am missing my veg but I'm not feeling hungry and I really thought I would. If anything, I'm feeling as if I've eaten too much. Yesterday I couldn't manage two boiled eggs AND the soup for lunch so had the soup at about 3:30 which then meant I had no room for my apples. Not sure what I do about that really but there are worse problems to have, aren't there.
The plans for today are . . .
B: porridge with half of a fruit yogurt (then I don't need the stevia)
L: This is where it gets complicated. I have my grandson (home from uni) coming over for brunch mid morning. Obviously, I can't have a brunch but I can have an apple. But also I won't be able to have my lunch at lunch time for a different reason so might have to just miss it out for once and have my second apple whan I can eat later on. If I have lunch then, I won't have room for dinner and I don't want to risk another 'attack' by stuffing myself.
Not great but . . .
D: baked cod, SW chips, side salad, the other half of the yogurt
From the freezer:
For grandson - bacon, sausage, bread
The frugal factor.
Not a lot once Alex gets going!
Splitting the yogurt will work well and it makes the best of the dairy portion.
I don't count missing lunch as being frugal, so it doesn't count!
Just one of those days where things just have to be managed the best I can.
I have to have my gallbladder out and have been put on a short term 'liver shrinking diet' by Dr C. So, for the next three or four weeks, my plans/food intake need to:
conform to the rules of the diet
use up stuff from freezer and cupboard
