A Tufty Announcement!!
Guys, its official. I am now Anti-Skinny Cow!
Because I cant see the point in eating the stuff. Yes I was singing its praises a few days ago, and yes it is yummy. However as I was pounding away on the cross-trainer today it sunk in that Skinny Cow is *empty calories.* It contains next to no nutritional value. My body would thank me so much more if I ate a bowl of bran flakes with all its vitimins, folic acid, fibre and complex carbs than a tub of skinny cow with artificial sweetners, colourings and no nutritional goodness.
So I have cleared my home of Skinny Cow. My love for it is. officially. over.
A moment silence if you will. ;rip;
is they're smoothies then they're basically fruit so there's some good?
and i think we discussed this earlier, no need to pound away on cross trainer to skinny cow, you do that for meals....
TBH the choc skinny cow just tastes artificial, I wasn't too keen on it.
I've got Del Monte smoothie lollies now.
mmmmm tuna and salad jacket potato for lunch yum yum
Does this diet actually work? Really want to lose weight, obvisiously i will exercise as well but jus wondering if anyone has actually tried this diet out?
Eating healthy and exercising will lose weight in every case,no matter what the diets called.
People lose weight at different speeds. Like Whistle, I've lost a lot of weight in my first 2 weeks of dieting (about 9 pounds) but I know now its going to be an upward struggle! I eat 3 square meals a day & snack on apples & have been using tescotracker to keep me on 'track'. Also, I've been using Natalie Cassidy's fitness DVD & have done lots of walking. I know I may get comments that losing that much weight in 2 weeks is not healthy, but I haven't been starving myself & have been excercising. It seems going from eating rubbish all the time to cutting down portion sizes & substituting fatty foods for low fat options (e.g. sour cream on JP's to beans or creme fraiche) has really benefitted me.
Probably not a great deal.
So empty calories then?
I'm going to stay away from foods with next to no nutritional value from now on, - no matter how yummy they may be.
