Follow my 30 day vegan weight loss journey…
A lot has happened in the last few months that I have been absent from blogging,
We moved into a new home, I started a YouTube channel (subscribe here) & we finally planned our vacation to the US of A!
I have also been junk food binge eating & trying (failing) too loose some extra fat before my big trip to the States. But enough is enough, as of today (31/07/17) I am starting a 1 month diet overhaul in the bid to loose as much fat as possible before the holiday as it is exactly 1 month away.
And I want to take you guys along for the ride
Now, I don’t have a ton of weight to loose. I currently weigh around 11.5 stone, and I would like to get that number down to 11 or just under if possible! My aim is to loose some fat and feel more confident in myself overall.
Every day I will be writing up my full diet plan, everything I have eaten that day and how I am progressing, hopefully if you need some motivation to jump onto a healthy diet & exercise plan or just want to loose that little pooch you have on your tummy whilst gaining some bad ass muscles (me) then stick around and make sure you’re signed up to RaeLikesFroot for all the updates and eventually before and after photos where I would have (hopefully) made some significant progress!
I wanted to keep day 1 breakfast simple, quick and easy as I have a 9-5 to get too (I’m also not mega hungry today so this is a light breakfast)
1/4 large Watermelon, juiced
2 bananas at work around 10am
500ml filtered water

Lunch & Snacks
I like to take lunch to work, not because it’s hard to find vegan options (it’s very easy actually) when I am trying to loose fat I keep my meals simple & as clean as possible.
Fava beans, broccoli & mushrooms (heated in microwave)
Snacks – Eat Real chilli & lemon lentil chips (a bit naughty but I had a craving)
Green tea & 1ltr water
I am aiming to hit the gym at least 4 times a week, the most convenient time for me to workout is after work.
Combining a mixture of squats, body weight workouts, rack pulls, calf press, lat pull down, chest press, hip thrusts and I also have a ab routine. I like to mix it up each time I go and use each session to focus on a different part of the body.
I do about 40-60 mins of weight lifting followed by around 20 minutes of any cardio, I would usually have a banana protein shake after the gym but my lunch was pretty protein packed and I was still quite full so I skipped the shake!
