Dinner: Apple, left-over bolognese, 2 vegan sausages, garlic bread

a bit of an usual day - I had breakfast very early, so I could have my lunch (which my friend thought was a snack) after swimming today. Not enough fresh veggies here because I've used all my money for the week. However, made nice pack-up food for lunch and dinner at work tomorrow.

I wish Spark had a feature in the food tracker that allowed us to track there and get points for it WITHOUT calorie tracking. I'm pretty sure research shows tracking the calories is not necessary for the benefits that have been found. And it would make it easier when I eat out and don't know the calories- nor do I want to have to find out. I want to be able to travel the world and eat where it fits in!

I guess you get points for posting here.

Then again, honestly, points have not been much of a motivator for me.

Dinner: Quorn sausage sandwich; apple; 3 oatcakes with jam

This afternoon's snacks were when I had been supporting someone in hospital all day - and it was very noisy, hot and stressful. The snacks were eaten in the frustrating waiting two hours between them saying he could be discharged, and waiting for the meds and discharge papers! I did recognise that I ate out of frustration and not hunger!

Tuesday 23rd June

Breakfast: Wholewheat flakes with dried berries, soya milk; oatcakes, butter, jam x 4

Lunch: Ryvita, butter, Dairylea cheese spread x 4; red pepper, lettuce, coleslaw; banana

Dinner: Stir fried vegetables with brown Basmati rice; natural yoghurt and apricots

Another day without snacks! I'm not too worried about the calorie content of my three meals - I am more concerned about WHEN and WHY I eat.

This evening I was at a Midsummer bonfire celebration - so out on a hilltop, dancing round a fire at 10pm! There were Cornish pasties available - but I DID not have one. I had thought about it earlier and decided that 10pm was too late to wait to eat - but that, having eaten dinner, I did not want a second dinner! I was a little bit hungry when I got home at about 10.30pm - but I had a cup of Redbush tea and went to bed. I don't think I was really hungry - but I was craving the savoury, fatty, hot, tasty experience of eating a pasty, and being part of a large group of people who were all sharing food.

Wednesday 17th June

Breakfast: Tofu scramble, Ryvita and marg x 3

Lunch: Wholemeal roll, marg, white bean pate, beetroot; banana

Snack: cashew nuts

Dinner: Baked potato, hummus, stir-fried onion/peppers/courgettes; fruit salad (nectarine, peach, strawberries) frozen banana, plain soya yoghurt

Another good day from my point of view - I refused a biscuit mid-morning, and again mid-afternoon. I only ate half of the cashew nuts I had packed for my snack; I've never left any before - so felt quite empowering!

Tuesday 16th June

Breakfast: oatmeal, ground almonds, cacao nibs, strawberries, almond milk

Lunch: beetroot, apple, celery, tofu salad with soya yoghurt and vegan Worcestershire Sauce as dressing; Ryvita and marg x 4; banana

Snack: cashew nuts

Dinner: vegetable curry with tofu, naan bread; strawberries and soya yoghurt

Today I had a huge victory - in the team meeting, mid-morning, there was, not one, but two, large boxes of luxury chocolate biscuit assortments. I looked at them, remembered that I was on a NoS day, clasped my two hands together, and didn't have any of them. Once I'd made the decision I also managed to 'forget' about them. This was amazing for me because if I 'resist' the biscuits I generally then spend the whole time being mesmerised by them!

Monday 15th June

Breakfast: oats, ground almonds, cacao nibs, almond milk, raspberries

Lunch: Ryvita x 4, marg, peanut butter, large bowl of green salad leaves; apple

Snack: a few walnuts, cranberries, 10g 85% dark chocolate

Dinner: beany veg chilli, brown rice, Doritos

This was interesting for me - to eat only four times in the day. I took the little snack with me and expected to 'need' it between breakfast and lunch - but I didn't. I DID however feel hungry by about 4pm and was glad of the snack as I did not get to eat dinner until 8.30pm. I really wanted the Doritos - and as I was having them as part of my meal they were not being used as additional food. I only had about a tablespoon of rice - left some on the plate.

Sunday 14th June

Breakfast: Ryvita x 4, marg, peanut butter

Lunch: wholemeal roll, hummus, celery, cherry toms

Snack: banana

Dinner: TVP/veg bolognese, wholewheat pasta; raspberries and soya yoghurt

I was aiming to have a sugar-free day - but the soya yoghurt (plain) turned out to have a little bit of sugar in it - I could really taste it! But, on the whole, this was a good day.

I started reading about the NoS diet - and joined the team. The foundation of it is to have No sugar, snacks or seconds on weekdays. The theoretic basis is the premise that snacking/grazing means we never feel really hungry - so are overeating - and that snacks are a modern phenomenon. It made sense to me, as I remember that, as a child, we only ever had three meals a day - and things like cakes, biscuits, desserts were usually at weekends. I'm going to give it a whirl. However, as I've been used to having three snacks most days - I'm going to allow myself one snack a day and see how it goes.

Yes, I am vegetarian - mostly vegan. I tried low carb eating, but couldn't sustain it - it didn't feel good to me. I have tried lots of different things - at the moment I am finding the McDougall plant-based system the most easy to sustain - it's basically starch-based and hardly any added fats. I still need to keep off wheat/bread, and sugar is no good for anyone! I went through a stage of trying to get the amount of protein recommended by Spark - and got really constipated eating eggs and dairy - it didn't work for me. I eat quite a lot of pulses, nuts and tofu, I also use soya protein and nut milks - but the protein question has many answers and we have to find the level that's right for us.

Are you a vegetarian as I don't see much protein. I can't lose weight unless I eat low carb, as I just have to many cravings if I eat sugar/starches.

These meals might sound odd, but I work long shifts in a care home, so often the whole day's meals are pack-ups. I didn't eat the peanuts because I didn't go to the pub, as I finished work too late - so I finally got to eat that banana!

I have been doing a food journal type blog on my Spark page for about 4 weeks and (a) found it very useful for my own accountability and (b) found that comments soon dropped off as people got bored with it! I don't really want comments, but I DO want a place to keep a record and hold myself to account. So I'm starting a community journal.

How my food journal works is:
1 = what I planned to eat
2= what I actually ate
3= anything I eat which is not really good food (junk!)
