Meal Planning Monday - Post 5:2

Meal Planning Monday
So this is the deal. For the past three weeks I have been following the 5:2 diet. I've mixed things up in order to see what works best for me and lost 1-3 pounds a week. It wasn't that hard when splitting the fast days and I could eat what I want on my normal days. However, I have decided not to continue with it. I think I can achieve better results with a normal healthy eating plan. I've felt quite a bit of guilt over this, but it's just not for me 100% of the time. What I would say is that I am keeping this regime in my arsenal, because the fast days are great if you have been caning it over the weekend or have had a particularly indulgent week.

So, here's my regular healthy meal plan for this week...

Monday: Chicken and vegetable stew
Tuesday: Home made low fat corned beef hash
Wednesday: Low fat Lincolnshire sausages with carrot and swede mash
Thursday: At the hairdressers, so possibly just a chicken sandwich on wholemeal bread
Friday: Out at Solita for my friend's birthday do!
Saturday: Cake club! Write off.
Sunday: Home made burgers with frites.

Please leave your comments below... x


  1. Mmmm sounds lovely - would love to hear more about the low fat corned beef hash! Well done for giving the 5/2 a go - I think it sounds like a great idea in principle, just not necessarily that doable when you factor in every day life...


  2. Saturday and Sunday looks like a good day ! I've managed to lose 2.5 stone with weight watchers (and keep it off), it's a diet that works! x

  3. I love the sound of the corned beef hash - I love corned beef! Glad the 5/2 thing worked out - good to have these habits ready like you say in case we overindulge! I keep my "Rosemary Weeks" (following the 1400 cal Rosemary Conley diet) for that very reason! Have a great week x

  4. am also intrigued buy your low fat corned beef hash... tell me more...

  5. Reference hash... will try and get round to posting a recipe!!!

  6. Cake club?! Yum!
    Not seen corned beef hash about in ages - enjoy :)

  7. Well done for doing the 5:2 diet for a few weeks. I was intrigued by the idea but I know that I wouldn't have been able to do it. I love my food too much and get grumpy if I can't have any, plus I don't actually need to lose any weight at the moment. Moving house 3 months ago shifted a few pounds and they haven't returned yet :)

    Enjoy cake club!
