I thought I'd start doing What I ate Wednesday posts as I find them really interesting, especially when people are trying to eat healthily. As you can see, I like to keep each of my 3 meals around the 350 mark which gives me space for a couple of snacks. I'm trying to stay below 1300 calories at the moment in order to lose around a lb a week.

I've given up chocolate for lent which is quite a big deal for me as, even when I'm eating healthily, I do like to include a little chocolate treat into most of my days. I'm not sure if giving it up will really help my diet that much as I'll probably just reach for non-chocolate snacks instead!

Have you given anything up? Do you like reading WIAW posts?


  1. oh wow! you're good!

    I love your menu, the breakfast not so much but only because I can't stand peanut butter.. without it I'm sure it'd be delicious!

    Looking forward to more of these :)
