First 12 Days in OA – Day 5 (Sunday 1 August 2021)

Create a food plan. Continue reading pages 5-17. Draft a food plan and discuss with your 12 Day Sponsor. What will help you stay honest and to practice following this plan on a daily basis? (e.g writing down your plan, emailing / texting your plan etc)

In my last blog post I talked about certain foods that cause problems for me, and certain foods that don’t.

I think that “traffic lights” technique might work for me. So I might start with that, and see how I go.

I’ll also add a “go” component to my plan, which is daily walks, and slowing down how fast I eat.

So here it is:


  • Chocolate all types including hot chocolate
  • Dairy foods all types
  • Biscuits all types
  • KFC chicken
  • Muesli bars


  • Burgers
  • Fries, hot chips, onion rings
  • Pepsi Max
  • Cider

GREEN everything else


  • Slow down my pace of eating
  • Always eat at the table
  • Daily exercise – walks, strength exercises etc.
  • 2 meals a day only with no breakfast or snacking. When I’m done I’m done.

I think that’s a good start. I’ll add / alter it as necessary.

I’ll see how it goes ad work from there.
