Breakfast: Tea with no sugar, back on the yoghurt and fruit!
Lunch: Hmmm, I drank lots of water? Did I mention that yoghurt? It was quite filling
I have been doing pretty well so far this week with my diet. However, I did not even register the fact that I have been having daily hot chocolates at work. As it comes from a vending machine, I am not sure of the nutritional content, but I know it definitely has sugar! After a little scouring of the internet, I found some nutrition labels for various instant hot chocolates.
OK sugar is not as bad as I thought, but its carb heavy and most of those are from refined sugars. Something else I will have to say goodbye to.
Dinner: OK by now I am starving (another reason why three meals a day is important!) I REALLY want to treat myself, and I have been craving pizza all week. So I compromise by buying an American Hot with a gluten-free pizza base. The base is as how you would expect with gluten free products; thinner and more dense, but the flavours of the toppings make it worth it.
I tried looking for the nutritional information to make sure that it didn’t have any sugar but only found info for the regular crust supermarket version – even so, the amount of sugar is about 7.4g for a whole pizza (which is just over a teaspoon- that’s not bad).
I did find a nutritional content sheet for every dish at Pizza Express – see here, although it just had information for a gluten free base only (which interestingly has more carbs than the classic crust, though on 1.7g of sugar).
Anyway, It’s Friday, I got my pizza, and I’m off on holiday next week, so no regrets.
