Here's our BUDGET tip - just roast half the chicken. Much nicer than roasting the whole lot then looking for recipes. See more here.
Our butcher cut the whole bird down the middle. We rubbed piri-piri seasoning all over then roasted. Each half took around 40 minutes to cook and we we enjoyed two fresh, hot roast meals. We crisped up the skin under the grill for 5 minutes. A very tasty meal cooked in under 45 minutes - with hardly any effort and under 500 calories. What more could you want? Total cost per meal for two was around £2.50 each (£1.25 per person).
We are in our THIRD year - having lost lots of weight and kept it off. We've noticed now that if we eat ENOUGH at a meal, we don't feel hungry until 4 or 5 hours later. We love eating 3 meals per day, but say you preferred to eat 4 smaller meals per day, then go ahead. The gap between meals is less, so you just need to eat a little less at each meal time. Simply divide your calorie allowance between the number of meals you prefer to eat.
I'm currently sorting out a mountain of old clothes - all far too big. We won't be putting the weight back on - because we know how to keep it off. That's a far cry from my old 'traditional dieting' days, when I would always put the weight (and more) back on.
REMEMBER: We all have a calorie allowance - do you know yours?
We began our weight loss journey in January 2011 - and began our blog in June 2011. Here's a link to the first post. (here's the link).
We like to post our main meals to give you an idea of just how far calories can go! It's up to you what you eat.
