Day Three: Food is good.

You would think that 800 calories is a severely limited diet.  But it's not really.  There are so many low calorie vegetables in these dishes that I am eating more than I usually eat, at least as far as bulk goes.

If you get hungry you can snack on vegetables from the approved list.  But so far, I've only been 'actually' hungry yesterday mid-morning.  I think that's because the workout was killer.  Burpies, chair dips and jump rope.  (done ol' lady fashion of course - but I gave it my all.)

I ate my veggies and was satisfied.

For dinner I had:

Spaghetti Squash Bolognese

It has ground turkey, Bob's marinara sauce, onion, celery, spaghetti squash and spinach.  It was delicious.

There is more to life than this Jump Start.  I am still working on my edits.  Slow process and the more I work on them the more I can see how I want my story to possibly go a different direction.

    1. It has been kind of fun. I always try to do 'healthy'. I feel I'm getting the best of both worlds.

    1. It was delicious. I even made it for my friend rather than going out for dinner. It was well received.

  3. That actually looks pretty good- I can't imagine only eating 800 calories a day! (A meal-maybe)

    1. It sounds awful - but so far so good. There are just so many veggies that it does not feel like a hardship.

    1. It's very good. It is also the strangest stuff I've ever seen. I would without doubt cook it again.
