CSIRO diet

Postby kitty » Thu Aug 04, 2005 1:07 am

i have started the CSIRO diet this week and so far so good! they say that you aren't suppose to get hungry in between meals but me being me, i really thought that i would get hungry, but hooray hooray i havent!
that hasnt stopped me grabbing!
so i have the diet (well meal plan) down pat (or is it pact?!) and the exercise is going along well (as are the good deeds) i just have to stop grabbing! just becase it is there does not mean it needs to be eaten by me!

I've considered buying the CSIRO diet book and having a go. I'm just kind of scared of the low carb thing. What are the meals like?

i love it because it has 12 weeks of menu plans worked out for you. they even have the recipes for each of the meals and what i love the most seeing i hate the supermarket, they have a shopping list of each new week! how lazy is that, just what i need!

here is my menu for today serena:
3/4 cup high fibre cereal with 250ml low fat milk with 150g drained tin fruit

salmon roll (1 wholegrain bread roll with 100g tinned salmon and chopped onion)
a greek salad

200g lamb: baked rack of lamb with baby vegies
1 piece of fresh fruit

they also have a section which sets out which foods and drinks contain minimal kilojules which you are allowed to eat freely.

im only 4 days in but i think it will work for me seeing i am lazy with food preparation and even lazy when trying to work out a meal plan for each week. so hopefully having it there for me in black and white will be just the thing for me. that and plus i dont want to waste 30 bucks on a book!

That sounds great. I hate working out food plans and grocery lists too, it's probably my biggest downfall. I might have to go down to angus & robertson tomorrow and have a sticky beak. And the meals sound quite easy and normal. Is there much snacking happening or do you just not feel like it?

I bought my copy at Angus & Robertson for $30 just this morning. I'm going to have a big read. Even Darren is finding it interesting and he's reading it as we speak. He obviously hasn't got to the rules about alcohol consumption yet.
