Day 3 – Be colourful

Posted on by Denise Taylor

Did you complete yesterdays tasks? It’s easy to skim read, but much better to be active.

Colour

Since Thursday I’ve stayed focused on my low carb diet – and my main meal has over half a page of roasted mediteranean vegetables – onions, courgettes, aubergine, peppers, mushrooms. It’s a brilliant way to get lots of colour into your diet.

Have a think of the meals you eat

do you have enough vegetables, and are you getting plenty of colour?

If my husband had his way he would just eat garden peas – yes it’s a green veggie, and green veggies are good for you, but there is always a need for variety.

I’d also like you to think about how much fish you eat – the rich oily fish like mackeral, smoked mackeral, sardines and salmon are full of good fats – Omega 3.

This first week is about making sure you are making good choices.

Can you say yes to the following?

  1. I’m committed to this and have written down my commitment goals
  2. I’m logging everything I eat and making a note of why I’m eating – we know it’s not just down to hunger
  3. I’m avoiding diet drinks and white bread
  4. I’m eating plenty of vegetables and a couple of pieces of fruit a day – berries, pears and apples are good choices. Some other fruit is full of sugar.
  5. I’m drinking more water and logging this too!
  6. I’ve made a note on all the reasons I want to lose weight.

I’m going to assume you are saying yes to everything unless I hear otherwise from you.

Here’s to our good health
