    for anyone who is interested there a website called www.food.com.au
    you can search for different foods and find out nutritional information. I dont know whether it does brand names though, it seems to be more generic, but its really useful, to me anyway.

    I'm not going to put my daily diets stuff online unless I stuff up, mainly becuase on TF its very boring and much the same each day. I might do a blog post though with a sample days eating plan.

    I was feeling so so hungry today though, I usually have my lunch shake or soup at or after 2pm but from about 12:30 I was feeling hungry which is really very unusual for me on TF...then I remembered that I'd forgotten to take my sugar balance (chromium type) supplement. It really is wonderful and something I am thinking of having even off the program.

    Does Tracey come in to this thread? Tracey if you see this, does inliven have any blood sugar balancing effect at all. I have a tendency towards low blood sugar and find things like chromium help a lot..

    Today I have been so good. No snacking at all.

    So tempted to jump on the scales, but weigh in day is not until Saturday so don't want to blow it.

    So I am very proud of myself. Rayray I am taking a sugar balance supplement too cause of being insulin resistant. Do you find it makes you thirsty?

    Just ate a nice big salad with some cheese for lunch and just enjoying a glass of diet lemonade. I am now only allowing myself a diet drink after two glasses of water.

    Leanne, not sure. I have to drink at least 2L water a day on the program, in addition to any other drinks, so I dont really get thirsty as such.
    It sure beats fainting though!

    RayRay - Thanks for the tip re: website - I might check it out.

    Today is officially day 3 for me I think

    Breakfast = strong black coffee, 1 watermelon fruche, 1 banana
    Lunch = 100g hommous, carrot + celery sticks, 100g pineapple
    Snacks = 2 packets (18g each) of those Snakata rice chip things. They come in packs of 10 and are low fat.
    Dinner = planning to be grilled Atlantic salmon and garden salad. Just felt like fish this afternoon for some reason.
    It was a huge 250g steak I couldn't finish!! Also ate some pre-packaged coleslaw at 7.5g fat per 100g.

    I am getting bored with the hommous but made heaps of it on the weekend and need to get it eaten! Maybe a change tomorrow and then back to it on Friday. If anyone wants the recipe it is quick and easy so let me know

    Water - only so-so today. I did a lot of running around at work today and was away from the desk so probably have about another litre to go. It'll be another night of frequent waking ahead for me

    Ok - here it is! I cheat and buy canned chickpeas instead of boiling them myself.
    Adjust the amounts of salt, garlic, oil etc to taste.

    2 cans of chickpeas - drained; 1-1.5 tbs tahini; 1-2 cloves crushed garlic; 1/2 tsp salt; 2 tbs lemon juice; 1-2 tbs extra virgin olive oil. Put it all in a blender or food processor and whiz! (If it's a bit dry, just add more oil or lemon juice or equal amounts of both). You can halve it but I find there is not enough in my food processor for it to work properly, hence I end up with heaps every time.

    For anyone who likes beetroot, you can also add a tin of that (well drained) for beetroot hommous.

    Had a shocker yesterday. I am tempted NOT to wite it down, but now I must to keep me honest!

    2 coffees
    1.2 l of water
    1 KM shake

    2 Cheds

    I diet yogurt
    1/4 cheese toastie

    steak
    sausage (eek)
    buttered bread roll (eek)
    glass of wine (eek)
    Loads of salad
    Colesalw (eek)

    Handful of toffees (double eeek!)

    (We had friends staying. That is my lame excuse.)

    Seeing it written down it's not TOO bad. But it certainly more than half of the things I ate are "not allowable" on Kate Morgan, so I feel guilty. But I kind of had a "****it" attitude, which is my downfall............

    Lucy, KM may not allow it but its all not too bad if you look at it from a WW POV. You soo could have been worse, I think you showed great restraint.

    What foods can you eat on KM other than the shakes?
    Are you allowed to have dairy, nuts? Carrots?
    I saw a promotional offer at the one near me and its 2 for 1 registration, thinking of hoodwinking mum into it...
