My 2 Day Diet Experience – Progress Review – Month 1


Rather than posting every week with my progress on the 2 Day Diet, I will be saving my updates for a monthly post.  This is now the end of the first month so let’s see how things are going.

I am sticking with two days a week quite easily.  For those two days, I am planning my meals and sticking to them.  I admit that I am using prepackaged meals as I don’t want to be bothered with cooking small meals, but it is going well.

Week 2 – Diet Day 1

Lunch: Some cheese on crackers.

Dinner:  Leftover turkey and ham with a can of baby carrots

In between: 2 cups of tea and a Firecracker punnet from a Graze box

End of month summary

I am aiming for a maximum of 700 calories on diet days, while still eating what feel like ‘normal’ meals and for the most part I am managing to do this.

I have been recording my weight weekly and have seen a slow but steady downward trend over time.

Weight at end of month 1: 176.4 pounds, 12 stone 8.4 pounds or 80.0 kg.

This is a loss of 3.5 pounds or 1.6 kg.

So while I may not be setting any records I am slowly and gradually losing some weight, while eating pretty much whatever I want for 5 days a week.  Let’s see what the next month brings.
