Thermomix Weight Loss Challenge and Meal Plan (week 3)

I am writing this final wrap up of my Thermomix Weight Loss Challenge with one foot all but on the plane. Those of you who have followed from week one will know that we are off on a family holiday to South Africa. This trip (and a little black cossie) was my initial inspiration to lose a couple of kg’s before we left town.

The Results Are In!

I lost another 0.5kg this week, bringing my three week weight loss grand total to 2.2kg. Yipee!! I went shopping for some last minute travel clothes yesterday and was comfortably back in the size 12-14 range. It put a huge smile on my face as I realised how my small effort to monitor what I ate was totally worth it 😊

So What Exactly Did I Do? 

I stuck to a calorie budget of 1500 calories as a maximum, I could go lower, though not by a lot but I tried my hardest to not go higher.

I aimed for 120g  protein a day and then ate whatever I felt like to fill up the rest of my calories. Obviously the smarter my choices, the more I got to eat on any given day. I was not restricted to salads and super low carb veggies, I certainly had those but I could also have chips and gravy with my steak. The only thing I needed to do was make sure it all fit within my calorie budget for the day and ensure that I hit 120g of protein.

I also aimed for between 20 and 30g of fibre a day and at least 2 Litres of water to help me fire on all pistons.

I tracked all of this on MyFitnessPal, whilst using ThermoHub to source my meals, create my meal plans and have my shopping lists instantly created. ThermoHub also has low calorie options and ideas, which are very helpful. A suggested replacement of coconut cream for coconut flavoured evaporated milk is the difference between having your sauvignon blanc and drinking it too!
