Food: 7-Day Salad Diet

I started my Salad Diet challenge last May 12. I’m so happy to tell you that I survived! It’s actually harder than I thought. It’s hard to resist food temptations but I challenged myself so I have to comply. But one thing I love the most about this challenge is that I had a chance to bring out the chef in me. I had a cooking class when I was in first year college since my course is connected with it. Everyday was so exciting. It’s fun to invade the refrigerator & experiment with food. Anyway, Before I started the diet, I weighed (I have to emphasize the ED, haha) 110.23 lbs, btw. Keep on reading to see how this diet challenge turned out!!!

Dinner: I wasn’t able to take a photo of my dinner. But I ended up with a soup meal. My mom cooked Lomi, a Filipino-Chinese dish made of a very thick fresh egg noodles. I literally just sip one-quarter cup of soup.


Day 2

I did my diet the wrong way again during the 1st day. I was using MyFitnessPal app eversince. I only consumed 473 calories out of 1200 (goal). It’s really few. My bad. I always have this bad diet habit when I really want to lose weight but it’s really wrong. So I tried to increase my calorie consumption to atleast 1000 & I failed again. I only consumed 747 calories.

Breakfast: Orange and apple with balsamic vinegar dressing topped with parsley

Lunch: Since I’m trying to reach the minimum calories allowed per day, I ate 1/4 cup of Pasta al Pomodoro

Dinner: A small bowl of lettuce & ten pieces cherry tomatoes topped with a few lengua bits drizzled with pepper and garlic powder in Italian salad dressing

I really tried to make my meals as healthy as possible. I love how colorful my meals were. If you’re really determined to achieve something, you won’t give up and you will try your best. I can’t believe I did it! Are you excited to know the result? :p Okay, I weigh 108.03 lbs now, so it just means I lost 1 kg!!! Hooray!!! Omg omg. Excuse my hyper-ness :p I made myself another diet program for next week (starting tomorrow till next Sunday). Do you have any guess? Well, it’s for you to find out next Sunday :p I need to lose a kilo again. Wish me luck! 🙂
