The Petite Advantage Diet | Day 20

weight loss

Hello savages!

Day 20 of the Petite Advantage Diet.

As you all know, I have been doing Jim Kara’s Petite Advantage Diet my way. I am eating 1,100 calories for 2 days straight followed by a day of 1,600 calories day and repeat. 

I started the diet on January 2nd. I went from 169.6 to 162.6 I lost 7 lbs in 3 weeks which is not bad at all. I also had a breast augmentation done on Monday so my weight will be a little different due to swelling and surgery. I weighed myself today and I was at 165 lbs. I don’t think it’s accurate because my body is still trying to recover from this surgery. I will keep you guys updated on this!

Also today is the 2nd to last day! AHHH!

Calories and meals

I wasn’t really hungry today for some reason. I had my 1,600 calorie day today but I have almost 500 calories left. WOMP!

Calories and meals

A lot of my food has been take out because I am not able to cook just yet. It looks like I really need to bump up my protein because that is what I am lacking. Also I got my days confused since I’ve been out of work for a few days so I just decided to combine Friday through Sunday.

The Petite Advantage Diet | Day 11-13 Weekend

engaged

Hey savages!

This weekend I had an engagement dinner gathering with my family and my fiancé’s family . I would call Saturday a cheat day because I ate whatever. I had a few drinks as well. Although this was my 1600 calorie day. I only had breakfast and dinner. I would say I went over 200 calories which isn’t horrible. I had both our families together and it was a great time.

FamilyFamilyFiancé

Sometimes it’s okay to take some time off to enjoy being with your loved ones.That doesn’t give you the okay to cheat the rest of the weekend because you had 1 cheat day. Sunday I was back on it. I ate about 880 calories. I wasn’t that hungry and I had to stop eating due to my surgery Monday morning, but I guess you could say that evened out my weekend based on my macros. Also I lost a some more weight, I am 163.6.

I got a breast augmentation, meaning that I can’t really work out for 6 weeks. Per my surgeon’s instructions. He did say the surgery went REALLY well. Although I won’t be working out, I will still be doing by diet and eating as so. I will walk around if needed.

I will do a vlog and post about my breast augmentation coming up! Stay tuned for that, I have had a lot of interest on the surgery.

I went vegan for 2 weeks

Hey everyone! So my fiancé and I have decided to go vegan for 2 weeks. I chose 2 weeks because it seemed like it only 2 weeks based on a documentary I watched on Netflix called “What the Health” to show any benefits. 2 weeks is actually a short amount of time too. I see that there may be additional benefits without consuming animal products or dairy. Some benefits include:

  1. Reduces the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  2. Lowers cholesterol
  3. Lowers blood pressure
  4. May reverse prostrate cancer if in early stages
  5. Reduced saturated fats since you’re not eating any meat
  6. Lower BMI
  7. More energy
  8. Weight loss

I’ll post my journey on this blog. I purchased Silk nut milk that comes with 10 grams of protein and I also bought Musclepharm’s new like products which includes organic plant based protein and even a vegan pre-work out. Stay tuned!

TURKEY AND ZUCCHINI QUINOA PASTA CASSEROLE WITH MOZZARELLA

Here is the recipe for the delicious casserole I made. 20160104_174751

Yummy!

 

 

What you will need: 

LEAN GROUND TURKEY 32 OZ


QUINOA PASTA 8 OZ


MOZZARELLA 1/8 CUP


RED ONION 1/2


ZUCCHINI 2 CUPS


BELL PEPPER 1


CHICKEN BROTH 1 CUP


TOMATO PASTE 2 6OZ CANS

  1. Set oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Boil quinoa pasta, rinse with warm water, and set aside.
  3. Set a skillet on medium-high heat and lightly spray with coconut oil. Toss in red onion and granulated or freshly minced garlic. Cook in the skillet until the onions are nearly translucent.
  4. Add in the ground turkey meat. Stir and cook with a wooden spoon or spatula. Chop the turkey and separate it as it cooks.
  5. Once the turkey is nearly finished cooking, add zucchini, tomato paste, tomatoes, bell peppers, and one cup chicken broth.
  6. Stir slowly and reduce heat slightly. Cover and cook until the mixture begins to simmer.
    *Tip: If your skillet is large enough, add in cooked pasta. If not, continue on to step 7.
  7. Evenly divide the pasta among the five mini pans. Pour the mixture on top of the pasta.
  8. Pour the remaining chicken broth over the individual pans to ensure moisture.
  9. Top each with 1/8 cup shredded mozzarella.
  10. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 375F. Once finished, allow to cool. Cover with foil and freeze until you’re ready to eat.
