06/03/2020 My 6 Day Food Diary

Here’s an honest food diary from the last 6 days, warts and all!

There’s no special or restrictive diet going on. Just what I class as a reasonable attempt at trying to eat reasonably well with a very relaxed approach!

I’ve often read food diaries in magazines and newspapers and thought, “and where’s the rest of it?!” or “surely they can’t eat like that ALL the time?!”

I’m keeping it real here and haven’t missed off one late night snack! If you know me well you will know I can and like to eat like a horse much to the disbelief of many.

Oh, and it’s 6 days not 7 as I came up with the idea last weekend and blog day is Friday!

Dinner – Buffalo chicken wrap with chips and lashings of ketchup.
