Celebrity Slim

Pretty poxy name don't you think?

Well the CS order has arrived. A small pink striped cardboard box contains the items which are to become the staple of my diet for however long it takes me to get to 60 kgs. There are a good variety of shake flavours, Strawberry, Chocolate, Caramel, Banana, Vanilla & Caffe Latte and more so I am sort of looking forward to getting started and trying them out. Also in the box was a shaker for making the shakes, a guide book for the program, small recipe book and some vitamin C tablets.

So I am supposed to have two shakes per day, one for breakfast and one for lunch, plus three lots of "approved" snacks throughout the day and then a balanced meal for Dinner. A balanced meal is 100gms of protein, such as lean meat, chicken, tuna or fish plus a huge portion of salad or vegetables. The plate should have a third of the portion as the protein and the other two thirds the salad or veggies.

On the banned list:
All the good things of course, high carb foods = potatoes, pasta, rice, bread, and cereals. No cordial or juice, no high sugar and high fat foods, naturally. Some fruits and veggies which are too high in either carbs, sugar or both = peas, bananas, pumpkin, legumes, kiwi fruit, watermelon, grapes.

I am still trying to get my head around it but I think the daily allowance of carbs to be spread between your main meal and your three snacks is 100gms, but the two shakes are about 60 gms so I think that means you have 40 gms left to spread between your main meal and your snacks.

Sounds like fun! (*eye roll*)
