The Breakfast Plan

So, a few posts ago, my initial thoughts on breakfast was to go with some breakfast smoothie. I even found a recipe or two which sounded nice.

Now, I may still try this going forward, but on some research I found some info saying that smoothies are not the best form of injection of fruit, and also info saying that drinking the fruit will not fill you up as much as eating the fruit.

So, this made me rethink and I decided to put that idea to the side, maybe revisit it for weekend breakfasts?

This made me rethink my whole breakfast plan, so on the spur of the moment, I decided on the following - at least for week 1 and maybe 2.

New Breakfast Plan

So, the following is my current breakfast plan for week 1 and 2. It may sound quite boring, to be fair, but this is about losing weight and not about having lavish food items 🙂

So, here is my 7 day breakdown

  • Day 1 - 2 bolided eggs with 2 slices of whole meal toast with butter
  • Day 2 - 3 Weetabix with a banana and milk
  • Day 3 - 2 boiled eggs with 2 slices of whole meal toast with butter
  • Day 4 -  3 Weetabix with a banana and milk
  • Day 5 - 3 slices of wholemeal toast with butte
  • Day 6 - 2 Poached eggs with whole meal toast
  • Day 7 - 3 Slices of whole meal toast with butter

Now, this is quite a boring breakfast plan really... But the aim is to have a controlled diet, but also something that can feed my body. 

The days I have eggs will give me some good protein, but also I read will keep my hunger at bay for longer. Now, I would eat boiled eggs every day, but I don’t think those in the same room would thank me for that 🙂

Controlled Diet

So, this above list means I have no more than 350 calories at breakfast which I hope will give me a good start to the day. You have to remember the algorithm, eat less than you burn.

So, with that in mind, my 350 calories in the morning is partnered with a lower calories salad at lunch (I will detail these but mostly greens which I have yet to count but looking at calorie estimates should come in around 300-400 calories.

I will list my lunch and evening meals in a different post though, just to change it up a little...

This Is The Starting Flag

So, this is my plan for week one, the starting flag so to speak. It’s not sexy, it's not luxurious, but it is calories counting and, in the long run, will allow me to get to the fit place I want to be.

This is the start of my Fit Dad Plan journey, I’m finally on that bicycle to fit land one breakfast/lunch/dinner at a time.

Look out for future posts on my diet changes and plans. I’m also starting to look at exercise ideas and losing. I’m thinking of own weight exercise ideas (this is where you use your own body weight as the weight in the exercise), but have not ruled out going to a gym.

More on that in a future post...
