When i tell people this is fattening or that is, it is usually followed by "Ahn ahn, so what should we then eat".
plus alot of people give regular "cant food healthy food at work" excuse so i have decided to tell you what i eat, perhaps you can pick from it. I'm one of those that believe you can eat anything so long as its in the right proportion.
 Should you eat a slice of chocolate cream cake everyday? no...Should you starve yourself? no- I'm saying there is a balance between these two extremes and you have to find it. I Wont lie to you and say i dont do occassional Sharwama's, I do, but the key word here is OCCASSIONAL.
 While I wont give you a "cast in stone" food table, given the inequality in each of our situations, i will tell you what i ate last week and i'll try to keep it as realistic as possible so its easily available and CHEAP to follow. Keep in mind that this is a work-week food table, I eat breakfast and lunch at work(i Buy my lunch most times) and Dinner when i get home.


Breakfast
Lunch -
Dinner
Monday      
- Two slices of Wheat Bread and jam
 -a cup of ginger Tea(2 cubes of sugar) = 280 calories

Vegetable and boiled egg =280 calories

- Sweet potato and 1 fried egg = 320 calories

 Note


 The sweet potato can fill you up without the eggs, save calories
I'm fortunate to work where there is always Slice bread around the corner, you can buys yours small size and keep for perhaps 2-3 days. Regular tea would also suffice for Breakfast. also note that without the jam/butter you'll be saving 100 calories, making the breakfast only 180.

you are probably wondering WTH the lunch combo is, I wanted protein and vegetable minus the carbs. Alternatively, you can have this with Turkey or fish (not fried o), the Vegetable fills me up and i found out i dont need rice or swallow to support. But if you have to, you can support this with just 1/2 cup of rice or a FIST size of "swallow" if you like

Fry just one egg, put in all the "putables" mixed veg(N500only for a full pack), onion, pepper, etc and your 1 egg will look like 2



Breakfast
Lunch -
Dinner
Tuesday 
-Oat
-2 cubes of Sugar
-A Glass of milk = 345 calories
Lunch - Moi Moi and Fried Fish = 400 calories
           
- Sauced Spagetti and boiled turkey = 400 calories





if you are fortunate to get hot water, then oat is always an option plus its CHEAP. Note that i count everything, including sugar cause they all matter
Lunch - I know! i cant find sensible boiled fish everywhere here jor. there are both wonderful source of protein
Dinner- a serving of spagetti is 1/4 of the bag



Breakfast
Lunch -
Dinner
Wednesday
- Two slices of Wheat Bread and jam
 -a cup of ginger Tea(2 cubes of sugar) = 280 calories

Beans and egg = 400 calories           
1 pack of noodles and mixed Veg = 400 calories
            


*no oil  

just a pack of noodles,with carrot, tiny chopped garlic, sometimes greenpea, sweet corn etc, they are all in a N500 mix veg pack. my Noodles ends up looking like 2 packs


Breakfast
Lunch -
Dinner
Thursday
-Breakfast - Milo flakes, milk and Sugar = 400 calories
Vegetable and boiled egg =280 calories

Fish Peppersoup = 200 calories            




i recently grew an addiction for milo flakes #coversface....its a whole grain cereal tho, so it qualifies for healthy right?. Anyways, you can substitute with a healthier cereal. Remember, the serving size is one cup




Breakfast
Lunch -
Dinner
Friday
-Oat
-2 cubes of Sugar
-A Glass of milk = 345 calories
Vegetable and beans = 300 calories
Boiled Plaintain and stew = 300 calories




on the Average, A woman should consume 1500 calories daily to maintain your current weight, a man 2500. The diet above is about 1200 give or take which is about -300 from daily requirement and still healtyhy
. look at it this way to lose 1 pound, you have to drop 3500 calories, either from exercising or meals. foll0wing this meal plan you will lose about 2pounds in 3weeks without even realising you are on a diet.

if on the otherhand, this is too slow for you, look through the diet and hand pick the ones with the lowest calories for your weekly diet and also try this
no jam/butter with your bread,
replace full milk with skimmed milk
reduce or take out completely sugar
replace rice or spagetti with the wheat version
no fried food
At this rate your would lose atleast 1 pound a week ( which is unhealthy o! I don talk my own).

my next post will be dedicated to what to do on weekends

Till then,
Try not to eat until your belly shows the map of the food,

Leave a comment ,Tell me what you think, you can also suggest healthy meals as well ;)

    1. If you dedicate yourself over the next 21-days and follow The 3 Week Diet as outlined, you will be walking around with 12 to 23 pounds of body fat gone from your waist, hips, thighs, belly and butt. Your clothes will be looser, you’ll look healthier and more attractive…and you’ll have more energy than you’ve ever had in a long, long time.

  10. HCA got its first taste of widespread popularity back in the '90s, after a number of studies concluded that it caused weight loss in animals. One thing we know is that HCA blocks a portion of an enzyme called citrate lyase, which helps turn sugars and starches into fat. 2015's best garcinia cambogia brands
