Mornin' Laydees! Whatcha reckon to this - have I nailed it yet...? Diet plan within!

'nother sleepless night (thanks to a gang of teenage feckwits screaming outside my window until about 20 mins ago! Were either side playing yesterday?)) so I decided to give myself a Damned Good Talking-To and sort my diet out. Posting it here, 'cause I'm amongst me own species...

Right this is what I have

Meal 1

50g porridge with 1x25g scoop MP Whey Isolate (question: - I make my porridge with water, is the heat going to affect the protein at all (as it's undenatured)? Would it be better to NOT have it mixed with the oats and have it as a shake? If yes, what's better/best? 100% water/100% skimmed milk/50/50?
Probably still add some fruit (raspberries or a banana)
Green tea
Phase 2/Thermopure/CLA/Sesamin

Meal 2

100g lean chicken breast (bought ready cooked, but the weight will have to be guesstimated as I don't have any scales at the moment, unless anyone can tell me how to make the estimate more accurate?)
100g low-fat cottage cheese (again guesstimated)
Green tea

Meal 3


Meal 4

Tuna salad made with 1 tin JW tuna in water, rocket, spinach, watercress and chard. Few cashews (but I don't know what oil to use for the dressing - anyone?)
Supps as brekkie ('cept for multivit)
Green tea

Meal 5

This will either be my last meal (in which case, I'll finish the cottage cheese) or penultimate, in which case it'll be a shake made with 50/50 milk/water.
More green tea (unless after 6pm, then no green tea!)
Sesamin/Phase 2/CLA

Meal 6

Cottage cheese

So folks, how's that looking (just hope I'm able to get the storage sorted out so I can stick to it)!

I've only ordered 1kg of WI (smooth choc - was going to go for raspberry, but the choccie seemed to get the ravest reviews in the reviews section on MP's site, the raspberry wasn't so good...) due to storage problems and I don't want to waste money on a 2.5kg bag in case I hate it (I'm fickle; wish they did a selection - I may very well be in the mood for choccie today - but it could be banana or strawberry tomorrow and vanilla the day after!)

So, any cop...? If not, where am I still going wrong...?

Cheers, friends!

P.S. Got to go back to the dental hospital today to discuss sedation methods with my consultant (need to have 4 teeth out this time round, need half me gob removing in total!) and will be making an appt with a doc at the surgery over the road at the same time, to discuss ways to help me sleep for a start (and to try to sort my IBS out, too!)

    Hiya WTBSM

    Going off what you have posted you will be at BEST 900 calories. That is calculating your protein shake at 30gs per serving and a WHOLE tub of cottage cheese at meal 6. WAY too low Hun!!! WAY too low. Yes you will drop weight but it will not be sustainable and the likelyhood of you sticking to it is pretty remote to be fair. You are only having 30g of carbs and hardly any fats. Now us wimmin folk have had it drummed in to us for so long that fats are the devil's poo and carbs are his snot that we think to lose weight we must stay away. Not the case. The simple truth is really that we have to stop eating stodgy sh*te and really look at a life style change rather than a 'diet'.

    The fact that you are looking at the way you need to eat indicates that you know things need to change but going off you proposed diet you just don't know how....which is fine. Before we have a look at how to change your diet give us an idea of 'you'!!!! Age, weight, height? Do you do any form of exercise (apart from target practice slingshot at unruly kids lol)!!!!

    They are all factors that that will need to be taken in to consideration!

    Tan - I love your posts - no BS and hit the nail on the head...

    For other recommendations, I'd make meals 4 and 5 the same to get in some more calories, and add in one of those packets of microwave rice split into three for meals 2, 4 and 5. That way you'll get some carbs in. If you've not got a microwave, you can buy readymade up packs of Quinoa from Tesco in their chilled cabinets or packet ones you can make up with hot water :-)
    Do you actually like Green Tea? If not, don't drink it! It's not a miracle cure... ;-)

    Hot water will denature protein, but I shouldn't worry, or, you can mix it in after you've added the hot water and left it to cool slightly... Definitely pop in some fruit

    Skinny Minnie - use the diet I posted.  I know you are trying but why are you trying to design your own diet when people are giving you one on the plate that will definatley knock the fat off you?
