R2 VLCD Day 8

Weight - 177.0

Week one loss is 9.8 lbs.

Lunch - (162 calories)
**Fiesta Tilapia with fresh salsa
125 g tilapia filet
1 tsp Mrs Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning
230 g roma tomato
2 tbsp minced onion
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/8 tsp ground cumin (or pepper)
1 tsp minced garlic

I make the salsa about an hour before my meal.  Fine dice the tomatoes.  Add minced onion, garlic, lime juice and cumin.  Refrigerate to let the flavors meld.

Heat the oven to 450 degreesF.  I often use the broiler but place the fish in the middle of the oven.  Place tilapia filet on a baking pan covered with parchment paper.  Sprinkle with Mrs Dash Fiest Lime.  Bake or broil 5 to 8 minutes until fish flakes and is no longer opaque.  A thicker filet might take longer.

Dinner - (171 calories)
Lemon pepper veal w/ sweet mustard cabbage slaw
100 g (raw weight) veal, thin sliced
230 g Napa cabbage
3 tbsp sweet mustard dressing (from yesterday)
1 grissini stick

Another use of some of the leftovers from previous days.

Evening snack - (86 calories)
270 g pink grapefruit
Yeah I ate the whole thing instead of half

Total calories for the day 419
39% from carbs, 10% from fat and 51% from protein.
