Celebrity Slim : Day One *

Welcome to my first day on the Celebrity Slim Program! 


It's been a bit of a shock to the system, but I know it'll get easier. For the past couple of weeks I've been working to change my diet to a more high protein, low carbohydrate sort of affair and today has definitely kicked it up a gear! I don't think this is a diet program designed to trigger ketosis, but given the sharp shift in my diet I am going to be watching out for it. 

In terms of the quality of the shakes, and the shaker I was pleasantly surprised! I know that sounds awful, but I'm always cautious with products like this. I was fully expecting to be covered with the shake when I was making my first one, but it held firm! I really liked the addition of the mixing ball inside the shaker, it definitely made a difference. 



Breakfast: 250ml Strawberry Shake, 2 mugs lemon with warm water, cup of tea
Snack: Rocky Road Snack Bar, cup of tea
Lunch: 350ml Cafe Latte Shake, 250ml Vita Coco Coconut Water and frozen berries, cup of tea
Snack: Coffee with 50ml semi skimmed milk
Dinner: Oven-baked smoked haddock with raw spinach and gazpacho salad
Snack: frozen berries with options hot chocolate 'sauce' ~ trust me, it works, just use a tablespoon of options powder with a little hot water and enjoy!

The directions say to use 250mls of water, but I found this to be not anywhere near filling enough, so I tried 350mls which worked out better thankfully! The flavour of the strawberry shake was utterly gorgeous, but I found the cafe latte shake rather bland much to my disappointment as I really fancied a latte! The Rocky Road Snack Bar was very surprising. I absolutely loved the presentation of the bar - evidently too much because I failed to photograph it before devouring it! I'm curious to know how a small bar can contain a respectable 7g of protein, and definitely wish they were bigger. Really, really good! So on the whole, it's been a good first day with Celebrity Slim, but I was pretty keen to have dinner by the time 7pm rolled around. 


For the gazpacho salad I used: 1/2 cucumber, 2 courgettes, 3 spring onions, 3 celery sticks, 3 small cloves garlic, 1 tin chopped tomatoes, 1 tin plum tomatoes, dried oregano and basil, coarse salt and ground black pepper. 

I'm feeling ok at the end of the first day. No real cravings or headaches going on as yet. By the end of this week-long trial I would like to see 63.0kg on the scales. That might be an optimistic goal but we'll see what happens.

Until next time!
