Two day shred (vegan weight loss) conclusion

Although I definitely followed the plan better than on day 1, day 2 wasn’t perfect (maybe 80%) but then what in life is?!  I’ll spare you the minute details but I’m sure adding banana to the protein shake and marshmallows (vegan) to a forbidden hot chocolate were rather off plan.

In terms of weight loss, the scales showed me as down 1.5lbs but that’s a fairly normal day to day variation so nothing significant to report there.  Maybe if I’d followed it 100% I’d have seen results but tbh it’s not a plan that I’d find easy to stick to anyway as it requires me to eat/drink too much and too often.  For example, if breakfast was at 8am, lunch was at 1pm and dinner at 6pm these are the times I’d have to eat or drink:

  • 7.30am pre breakfast – turmeric tea
  • 8am breakfast
  • 11am snack
  • 12.15pm protein shake
  • 12.30pm 500ml water
  • 1pm lunch
  • 3.30pm snack
  • 5.15pm protein shake
  • 5.30pm 500ml water
  • 6pm dinner
  • 8.30pm snack

As well as water throughout the day and two cups of green tea – it’s just too much.

So, I’m back to my own plan which is breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, evening snack plus 2 litres water/squash/herbal tea… much simpler and with My Fitness Pal I can track calories in vs calories out.

Breakfast: thick slice of homemade seeded bread with vegan buttery spread and marmite, 2 cups of peppermint tea

And yes, it was nicer than the quinoa porridge!

    Ever try intermittent fasting? I believe it’s at least 30% responsible for me losing 50lbs this year. Basically you stop eating by 8pm and don’t eat again until noon. You can still have coffee which usually curbs my appetite until then. It’s not for everyone but I can personally attest that it works. 🙂
