Week one success!

Week one was a grand success! Both JT and I are following ‘the diet’ and are doing pretty well (with the exception of someone who had a glass of wine with HIS sister for lunch on Thursday – what? Me? Bitter?). Not with standing we’re each down 5lbs! Energy levels are very low; I have am appointment to see the Dr. on Monday, hopefully he will make suggestions.
Tonight we had dinner in our backyard dining room. It was sushi-grade tuna seared rare on the Barbie – and I made a tasty stir fry.

For the stir fry use only your favourite veg, no point in eating stuff you hate while you are on this thing! We used broccoli, cauliflower, celery, mushrooms, zucchini and onions (both green and Vidalia) – about 230g for each of us (it’s a lot, believe me).
Sauté onions with a squirt of Pam and a dash of LS chicken stock for a few minutes, add the remainder of the veg. Season with Chinese 5-spice (I make my own), freshly grated ginger and freshly grated garlic, salt sparingly. It was wonderful.

As a treat, we went to the movies to see Pirates of the Caribbean; I love Johnny Depp. Aaaaahhh!
