I planned on a set amount of calories for each of us to stick to each day with a balanced diet of protein, fats and vitamins. For example having eggs in the morning is a great source of Protein which is what you need to keep you full and not craving snacks before lunch.

So a couple of boiled eggs each weighing about 50g are approx 77 calories each. So 154 Calories in total. Add a cup of tea with semi skimmed milk, another 15 calories. Total for breakfast 169 calories.

So an average weekly breakfast menu for Howard would look something like this.

Monday :- 2 Boiled Eggs, 1 cup of tea with skimmed milk = 169 calories.

Tuesday :- 2 Large Fried Eggs, 2 rashers of lean bacon, mushrooms, 1 cup of tea with skimmed milk = 255 calories

Wednesday :- 2 Egg Omelette with mushrooms, Cheddar Cheese and Ham, 1 cup of tea with skimmed milk = 359 calories.

Thursday :- 2 Boiled Eggs, 1 cup of tea with skimmed milk = 169 calories.

Friday :- 2 Large Fried Eggs, 2 rashers of lean bacon, mushrooms, 1 cup of tea with skimmed milk = 255 calories

Saturday :- 2 Egg Omelette with mushrooms, Cheddar Cheese and Ham, 1 cup of tea with skimmed milk = 359 calories.

Sunday :- 2 Boiled Eggs, 1 cup of tea with skimmed milk = 169 calories.

I on the other hand wanted something a bit different and as I am not diabetic I could afford to add something to my diet. I am a huge yogurt lover and heard about the no carb bircher. So researching online I found several recipe’s but I opted for this version. 2tbsp of ground flax seed, 1tbsp of raisins soaked over night in apple juice and 2 tbsp of natural set full fat yogurt. I personally drained the raisins from the juice before I added to the bowl as it was just too sweet for me, but it would be down to personal taste. This breakfast came in at 180 calories. I personally love it.
