Just like every morning, I started my day with two glasses of water on an empty stomach then had my cup of coffee (1 tsp of Nescafe, 3 tsp of fat free coffee mate, 2 tsp of sugar) followed by a glass of skimmed milk with 2 bran toasts and two boiled eggs!
A medium sized egg has 75 calories of which 60 are provided by the yolk and only 15 by the whites.
Researchers have found that when people eat eggs for breakfast they tend to lower their food intake over the next 36 hours!Try it to prove it !
The perfect hard-boiled egg: requires to be pierced on top with a needle in order to perforate the air cell and to avoid the shell to break upon boiling.The boiling water should either contain salt or a drop of white vinegar to help the egg white cook faster so that it doesn’t come out of the egg.
I started my lunch with a greek salad made of lettuce leaves, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, onions, 30 g of feta cheese with lemon juice and a teaspoon of olive oil and had 120g of grilled chicken breast in the oven with 4 cubes of potatoes!
As an afternoon snack i had 4 figs!
It is very important to know that two figs count as one serving of fruit! Don’t over indulge on figs they are highly caloric!
As for dinner, i had three brown toast with two tbsp of labneh light!
