Day 17 is here and it started with, Zaatar croissant with fruit skewers, low fat Laban (buttermilk), and black coffee.

The Zaatar croissant was good but I really, really, don’t understand LoFat’s portions. Yesterday’s cheese croissant was tiny, today’s Zaatar croissant was very big! Oh well, the more the merrier :)

Lunch was mushroom risotto with a side of Nachos salad. Both I’ve reviewed before and both I like very much.

Dessert was Malay dessert with white tea.

The best way to describe the malay desserts is that its like a date cheesecake slice. If you are a fan of dates, you will adore this dessert. Its really nice.

Dinner was potato in tomato sauce with bread and creamy cheddar and vegatables soup.

The potato in tomato sauce was nice. Its like an Indian potato 7amsa but it can get quite boring if you keep eating one 7amsa after the other for dinner.

The creamy cheddar soup was a bit weird. Taste wise it was really good. Texture wise? Exactly like a pot of melted cheddar cheese you’d pour on top of nachos! I should have done that, toasted the bread of the potatoes and pour the cheese soup on top to have a makeshift nachos.

Day 17 was very delicious indeed and the days are flying by very quickly. The count down is officially underway.

I’ve been following your diet since day 1 and though I’m proud of you for sticking it out, I’m even more proud of you for enduring such unappetizing food (Allah yzeed ilne3ma, sorry).
I see this happen a LOT – Kuwaitis go on diet plans from Diet Care and LoFat etc. and once they’re off their diet, they’re back to their usual lifestyle. Might I make a suggestion?

You are a wonderful cook. You have a full-fledged kitchen. I can imagine that you have a bit of time and a whole lot of imagination. Instead of being forced to endure such measly meals every day, why not google great healthy recipes that keep you full and limit your portions throughout the day? Make a lifestyle change rather than just a diet change for a couple of weeks. I don’t mean to sound condescending if I do, please forgive me, but I’m speaking from experience!

I used to go out to dinner almost every day and was invited tons of places etc.; soon the pounds piled on. When I realized it was time to get things right before it was too late, I sat down, did a little bit of research, went to Sultan and stocked my fridge/pantry with healthy foods so that would be all I have to eat. I also put together a folder of DELICIOUS healthy and easy recipes that I could refer to when I needed inspiration. foodgawker.com is your best friend!

Instead of greasy mechabees and heavy marag for lunch, I’d make flavorful lentils with toasted pita bread or chickpea stews (which you can make in advance!) and salads and they kept me full all day! I also made it a point to park farther from the entrance of the mall/jam3iya. A little bit of change goes a long way.

I hate to see someone with as much potential as you wasting your energy on diet meal plans. You have it in you – portion control, delicious healthy meals, and a little bit of movement. I’m rooting for you!
Sorry if this comment was super long!

Thank you my dear for the comment. I don’t mind long comments at all. On the contrary, it means someone out there cares enough to take precious time of their lives and share their thoughts with me. Thank you for that.

As for the lifestyle change, can you believe it if I told you that on most outings I barely eat anything? And that my extra pounds are not because of how much I eat?

I disagree with you, not all the food is bad. Some dishes are really delicious and sometimes I do crave diet meals food and I pass by their co-op stands and get myself some. Its just that we live alone, we have no one to help, I work long hours, and sometimes I return home so wiped all I want to do is to eat something and go to sleep. Sometimes even microwaving food seems like too much hassle. In those days, instead of just clicking on 6alabat.com for whatever pasta and salad combo is there for offer, I’d rather have something I can trust to eat without adding many more pounds to my stomach. I just can’t bare to cook, clean, work, drive, wake up, and socialize at the same time. At least if the cooking/food providing is taken care of, I can relax on one front and gather up my strength on the other ones.

Again thank you for your comment. Who knows? I feel an itch of wanting to cook something gathering up again somewhere in the back of my mind. Maybe I will get back on track sometime soon :)
