How I lost 6kg in 14 days
The first groups of foods you should avoid is
*I could not survive without milk so instead use Slim line milk from the pink carton
Rice (in moderation is ok)
Sauces such as gravy and packet sauces.
Oils, cook with olive oil.
There are plenty of good foods out there for you to eat, and again you should be aiming for low carb, low fat & high protein.
Remember always read the nutritional information on the packaging.
I asked for a roast chicken breast in the chipper last week, and the first thing he did was put it in the fryer.
Almost all fish is good for you such as Tuna, Salmon, Cod*, Hokey, Haddock all good
*Fresh Cod from the chipper is not acceptable.
I eat fish with sugar free beans (never the other kind)
Breast, Leg, fillet all without the skin. The skin contains a huge amount of fat.
Non fatty red meat is a great source of protein as well as being low in fat & carbs, but be carefull what you eat with it. You should choose a salad or veg to eat with your steak.
If you like eggs, and omelettes your diet has got easier as they are a great food. You can spice up your omelette by adding a range of herbs and spices along with other food complements.
When making your omelette use 3-4 whites, and only 1 yoke.
A great breakfast, and will set you up for the day. Remember Slim line milk.
Great to snack on during the day
Try to eat veg with your meals
Only pure juce, no sugar. I have been drinking tons of orange juice.
Great as a little treat, but don’t eat top much. Dry roasted, avoid anything cooked in oil.
No chocolate or yogart nuts.
Tea & Coffe
These are fine as long as you watch the fat content in the milk, and no sugar.
Great for you
Always carry a packet of sweetners on you.

"Rock Bottom" Chinese lesson #1
Hao (how) is the word for good, and can be used in many ways.
Hao chir = Good food.
Fei chung hao = Very good.
Ni hao = translated as "you good", it would be used as the equivalent of Hello.
Ni hao ma? = Are you good? or as we would say "how are you?".
Wo hen hao = "I am good" this is a response to "How are you", and really means "I am fine".
Bo hao = A polite way of saying "I don't want, I am good". "Do you want tea?, "No I am good".
Daja hao = "Everybody good" or "Hello everyone".
You can communicate in the simplest of ways even by nodding your head and saying "Hao" people will know what you are trying to say, or at least pretend to. Don't be surprised if you try to speak Chinese, and everyone bursts out laughing the Chinese will laugh to cover up their surprise or shock, and they are not actually laughing at you. This is a hard pill to swallow, as in Ireland laughing like this at a person could warrant a fist in the face.
You have also learnt other words today such as:
No = Bo
Food = Chir
Very = Fei chung
Everyone = Daja

Chinese Food (Baozi)
Glendalough Spink hillwalk in the Snow
We started out at approximately 12:00 from the Car Park at the upper lake, and walked west along the path on the north side of the upper lake. When we got to the miner's village all of the deer and goats had come down from the mountain into the valley because of the snow. I think we could have taken a hint from them, after all they are the real mountain experts.
We continued up the path to the foot bridge at a height of around 1200ft. We navigated this trough deep snow, and some times we found it hard to find the path. We crossed several gully's on planks thick with ice and snow on our assent to the footbridge. These gully's were partly hidden with snow and were sometimes hard to see.
We eventually reached the footbridge, where we surveyed our route to the top of the Spink. To be honest we could hardly make out our route past the cliffs. We took a short food break, and a hot cup of coffee was a welcome sight. We left our sheltered spot behind the old miners cottage, and proceeded on our way. This was the most precarious part of our journey, and we endured several falls into snow drifts of about 4ft. It was extremely difficult to keep on track, as it was covered in feet of snow. Soldiering on to the summit of the Spink we came increasingly closer to the side of the cliffs. i was glad to reach the summit of the Spink and could see the mountains and valleys from a perspective that many would never.
We continued our journey towards Poulnass Waterfall. Along the top of the cliffs we trekked close to the treeline at times, and many a times we fell flat on our faces, and sometimes on our backs. The boardwalk was like glass, and was almost impossible to walk on. Mind you the odd snowball across the back of the head did not make it any easier. When we started to fall their was not much you could do except try to land with a bit of grace amid the crunch of ice and snow under you. "Get up, laugh it off, move on" was our outlook, and considering we fell about 50 times it was the only outlook anyone could have. One broken leg or a twisted ankle or knee out here, and we would have had a problem. we were 2 hours from raising the alarm, and I did not bring my PSP.
Eventually the treeline was reached, and we started our descent trough the forest. The path here is underneath the trees, and is made of wooden steps. these steps are covered in ice and are impossible to walk on, and we added a few spectacular falls to our catalogue. Our final leg took us past the waterfall, and when the snow starts to melt the volume of water coming down the river must be something else.
