#LiveBelowTheLine end of day four and day 5

On day four, I finished the day with rice and tomatoes and red kidney beans.

On day five I had a banana for breakfast.

I went to the supermarket and bought a half price packaged risotto for 49p.

A banana for 11p

A can of plum tomatoes for 34p

For lunch I had a banana, (getting out of bed on day five was hard and getting past lunchtime even harder)

For dinner I had rice, a whole can of plum tomatoes and the left over red kidney beans,

and for supper (yes supper!) I had a can of mushy peas, which were amazing!

I think I ended the week with 7p left!

I woke up the next morning weighing 89.2kg

I'd gone from 93.9 to 89.2 meaning I'd lost 4.7 kg, 10lbs 3 oz in five days. Not as much as last time but still. 

My discussion of weight loss isn't about vanity, it isn't about crashing dieting, its about subsistence living for those who are day labourers in the third world (and perhaps closer to home with zero hours contracts), those who work full days without getting enough food or the right type of food to sustain weight and give energy and nutrients.

In my diet I afforded only one bit of dairy and that was freeze dried, pretty much the same with fats too!

Thank you to all who have supported me.

I've learnt a lot again this year. I've prayed a lot again this year, and I have been challenged again, to think about my own consumption. But perhaps more on this another time.

Blessings and thank you.
