I don’t have so much to document for this week because I away in Redang from Wednesday – Saturday, Saturday night I had a wedding dinner and Sunday we went a bit mad after being stuck on the island for a while.
Dinner was a really delicious Thai style chicken and pumpkin curry – I’d been wanting to try this for a while and it worked really well. It’s proper comfort food, I sat in front of the TV watching Sons of Anarchy and munched this down.
Lunch was something different! A lovely buffalo meat patty and scrambled eggs!
Dinner was tomato prawns, first time getting home-cooked prawns 😀
Yes that may look like rice, but it is in fact grated cauliflower! Quite a life saver if you love rice and rich dishes that really need to be enjoyed with rice.
I took my car to service whilst I was away in Redang so we had to eat out for lunch, we ate at a coffee shop and ended up with 3 really rich dishes (consumed with no rice!).
Dinner was in Kuantan, managed to get away with just eating about 1/4 of a bowl of rice.
Lovely food though.
I ate as a little carbs as possible, but diving burns a hell of a lot of calories and there were no high calorie items such as beans available, so I did have some rice. A typical meal would look something like this (didn’t drink any sugared water…ok I had one can of coke, but I also drank a lot of beer haha).
It’s a holiday wei…what am I supposed to do. Didn’t have my phone with me the rest of the time so couldn’t really take any pictures of what I ate.
Saturday night was a garden wedding where I stuffed myself with a lot of butter and bread roles, we skipped lunch so we could get back in time and just ate a bunch of nuts in the car on the way back (almonds, pistachios and cashew nuts).
Sunday went a bit mad instead of getting back on the diet, due to the sad news – we were both in a bit of a weird mood. Not a mood conducive to eating eggs.
I had an all day breakfast at Sid’s (seems to be a common place for my cheat day haha) and a few pints whilst watching the Rugby.
For dinner we ate Japanese at Jaya One – it was ok. I was still hungry after that though so I had a Ramly burger and some potatoe chips – whoops.
Of course by Monday I was back on track 😀
Monday Morning Weight = 124.1kg
Saturday Morning Weight = The best I have is Wednesday morning – before I went to Redang – where I weighed in at 121.9kg
Weight Loss = 2.2kg

Do you guys boil the cauliflower before grating? For how long? Cause I stupidly boiled it for super long and ended up getting cauliflower mash 😛
Mel: i pulse the cauliflower till the right texture first, then steam it for like 5 minutes just to warm it up a bit. it’s okay to eat it raw actually!
I’m one month into the paleo diet, so no rice for me :/ Grated cauliflower is a great idea though : )
can you steam it first?
Avios UK: Good luck, keep it up!
john: Yah you can steam it or have it raw – your choice.
