The Chocolate Diet - Part Two

Disclosure: I have been provided with product for a review.
All opinions are 100% my own.


I have just started on my third week of chocolately, dieting goodness.
  


I am surprised that:
  • I am not at all sick of chocolate yet and it just proves to me, that I probably would never be sick of chocolate.
  • The shakes do actually fill you up.
  • It does appear to be working.
  • It tastes good.

I have lost 2 kilos to date and I am finding it easy to stick to. I know that I would be losing more weight if I was to include some form of exercise in my day, like walking or getting on the exercise bike.  But I do hope to start doing a little bit of exercise, every morning in the following week. So we will see how I go. 



I have found that if I have the sachet in some low fat milk for breakfast, it will satisfy me right up until lunchtime. Then I mix it with water for my lunchtime drink. I found it is does taste good either way. But yes, I do prefer it with milk. If you shake it vigorously for a minute or two, it gets a lot thicker, yummier and fills you up more!

It is satisfying my craving for chocolate. Usually when I crave chocolate, I will buy a large block, and then I tend to over indulge. But I am just loving my little block of chocolate as my after dinner treat every night. It is satisfying me.


I'd love to share just one of the delicious recipes that are in the meal plan with you.

This is the Roasted Sweet Potato, Zucchini and Feta Frittata Squares
Cooking Time 50 minutes and serves 5.

Ingredients

2 medium eggs
1 medium egg white
1/8 cup of low fat milk
30g goats feta
150g sweet potato
1/2 medium zucchini
1 tablespoon mixed dried herbs
1 medium tomato
olive oil spray

Method
  1. Peel and dice the sweet potato. Place in a preheated oven 200°C on a baking tray lined with non-stick paper. Spray with the olive oil spray and roast for 25-30 mins. Leave the oven on. 
  2. Grate the zucchini and squeeze out the excess moisture, dice the tomatoes. Place zucchini, tomatoes, eggs, egg whites, milk and goats feta in a bowl and mix to combine. 
  3. Line a loaf tin with baking paper. Place the sweet potato evenly in the base of the tin. Pour the egg mixture over the top and sprinkle with the mixed herbs. 
  4. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C and bake the frittata for 20-25 minutes until golden. 
  5. Allow to cool before removing from the tin. Cut into 10 even portions. 
Cooking Tips

2 portions = to a main meal with salad greens

  3. Hmmmm, still not convinced, although you make them sound yummy. Im just not sure how I would beat the snacking urge throughout the morning that chocolate currently fills.

  4. I wonder if there is anything like this in the US. Seems too good to be true as chocolate and diet are not normally used together!
