Enormous Baloth Diet: I Can’t Believe How Much Weight I Lost!

Fathom Mage:
Still got a few details
of that look to work on 😉

So am I still an Enormous Baloth, or have I managed to become a Fathom Mage?

You won't believe how much weight I lost on my Magic: The Gathering themed Enormous Baloth Diet this week!

Starting weight: 223.6lbs
Ending weight: 218.6lbs

It worked! Ok, so I may not be a Fathom Mage yet, but I found this diet easy and pleasant to follow, and still lost five pounds in a week! Why? Why?? My best guess is: no bread...?

To sum up the Enormous Baloth Diet:

It's lots of vegetables, fruit, unprocessed whole grains, and pork.

Read the card:

Its diet consists of fruits, plants, small woodland animals, large woodland animals, woodlands, fruit groves, fruit farmers, and small cities.

So here's my food diary, but first, about that bacon:

I know bacon isn't usually a healthy food, but I was very lucky to find the healthier 'no added nitrates/nitrites' bacon in a pretty good sale at the supermarket this week - it must be a sign! Still salty, but it's an improvement 🙂

Enormous Baloth

Enormous Baloth: Food! Smash!

Day 1
Breakfast: Oatmeal (jumbo porridge oats and water)
Tea & coffee

Snack: 1 apple

Lunch: Bacon, boiled potatoes and carrots

Dinner: Cajun style red beans with brown rice, carrots, celery, onion and smoked pork sausage, steamed 'super greens' (spinach and other healthy dark green leaves). 1 orange and 3 dried apricots.

Day 2
Tea and coffee

Breakfast: 1 banana, half a bowl of oatmeal

Lunch: Bacon fried with mixed white and shiitake mushrooms and super greens. I thought at first I might have found a new favourite food!

Snack: 1 apple

Dinner: Leftover red beans and rice, frozen mixed vegetables (peas, green beans, carrots and sweetcorn). Fruit salad (orange, banana, kiwi and strawberries).

Day 3:
Tea & coffee

Breakfast: oatmeal

Lunch: Ham and salad, apple

Snack: Banana

Dinner: Green chilli pork stew (potatoes, onions, celery, pinto beans, pork, green chillies, tomatillos, frozen pepper strips, vegetable stock, yeast extract, cumin, oregano, green salsa and fresh cilantro/coriander), with brown rice, peas and sweetcorn. 1 orange, 3 dried apricots

Day 4:
Tea & coffee

Brunch: Bacon cooked with mushrooms, tomatoes, onion and spinach. I think I have found my new favourite food 🙂

Snack: Banana

Snack: peanuts, soy nuts and brazil nuts

Dinner: leftover green chilli stew, rice

Day 5:
Tea & coffee

Breakfast: oatmeal

Snack: banana

Lunch: Ham and salad

Dinner:
Dinner ran into a bit of a technical hitch. We usually have fish tacos on Fridays, but this week I was planning to make a Mexican pork dish called carnitas to put in the tacos instead.

So I started the carnitas, but they took too long to cook and people got hungry, so we ended up having fish tacos and fruit salad first, and then carnitas later as well, when they were ready. Very tasty though!

Also a couple of squares of dark chocolate, and lots of red wine with it 🙂 Sure you could find those things in a forest, right?

Day 6 (Saturday):
Tea & coffee

Breakfast:
Oatmeal, plus I made 'Devils on Horseback': prunes wrapped in bacon and grilled! I'd had them before at a Halloween party and really liked them. The kids were not so keen though.

Lunch:
Carnitas and leftovers.

Dinner:
'Cowboy dinner', as my friend calls it: baked beans with sausages, bacon and potatoes. Now that was one that the kids did like 🙂

Also fruit salad: less of a hit, but it's healthy!

Day 7 (Sunday):
Tea & coffee

Breakfast: oatmeal, which I left in the microwave at home and forgot to eat! So in fact, breakfast: nothing

Snack:
A few raw vegetable crudites with some ranch dip, and a pineapple chunk, followed by the rest of the leftover fruit salad when I got home ranting and raving and irritable with everyone because I was hungry 🙁

Lunch: leftovers

Dinner:
I made another new (to me!) American classic: pulled pork. This starts off with making barbecue sauce, which you're actually meant to make the day before, then using it to baste some slow roasting pork shoulder, which you finally pull apart with forks and mix with the rest of the barbecue sauce if you don't have a nine year old who won't eat spicy things.

I made coleslaw to go with it (cabbage, onion, grated carrots, caraway seeds and light mayonnaise), and also baked beans and corn on the cob. It was like a cross between Sunday roast dinner and a barbecue feast - lovely, popular with all the family and a really nice way to end the week!

I think the 'Enormous Baloth' Diet might actually be my favourite diet so far 🙂 And it worked!
