  • 29 July 2021 Got caught out a bit by the lean beef stew the better half cooked for tea pushing the protein way up. So after having a very wayward start to the week food and exercise wise got a great walk and all my home exercise in and will look at a fairly low calorie finish to the week to...
  • 28 July 2021 Yesterday was a good reminder of how easily it is to to lose focus. The day was going well right thru to tea but then had a packet of potato chips and a packet of cheese twists in the evening watching the Olympics. Was really angry this morning as last time I had lost all this...

  • 23 July 2021 Another busy Friday and happy to get to the weekend. One of the things I really enjoy with this diet is the ability to have more carbs (still low carb) which meant I could have some chips with my fish for dinner. Had a quarter BBQ chicken for lunch which helps lift the protein as...
  • 22 July 2021 Pretty happy with the macros today. Closer to where I would like to be daily. After flirting with Carbs a little this week find that to hit that 170g protein mark I need to have a decent slab of meat or chicken in one meal each day. For dinner it was a 400g rump steak.Much better...
  • Well, here we are, September and the numbers on the slides are looking good, the prospect of a vaccine and lots of holidaymakers and sightseeing foreigners are still short on the ground, the pubs are struggling and the restaurant business can't open, we have to wear a mask, on transport, in...
  • 21 July 2021 Low calorie and protein day. Caught up in budgeting for work and some health issues with she who must be obeyed so was quite distracted. Also a freezing morning so walk was off the table as well. Will look to get my protein up towards my 172g goal and go a little easier on the...

  • 18 July 2021 Biggest eating day for some time. Great Turkey roast dinner and went to town with 2 roast potatoes, bread and gravy. Definitely over the top and just one of those occasional blowouts that most of us have, The important thing is to reign it in and get back on track straight away....

  • 17 July 2021 Had a really good nights sleep and went for a great walk around a local lake (in between rain and light snow). Will post my weekly update later today but I am really exited about the PE Diet and feel I have found a foundation to my diet that I am both comfortable with and that I...
