...and how much exercise you got?

Very interested to hear what amount and type of food people's daily diet consists of,and whether it's obviously a lot more or less than I eat, or more nutritious or not.

I had a day without exercise so far, total consumption two slices of home-bake bread, a cup large mug of tea, and 2 x that of coffee.

Planning to eat a jacket pot for dinner now, with beans and a little grated cheese. Oh, and an orange for breakfast.

I am a few stone overweight, from Christmas excesses, but steadily losing it. (Not mentally, I mean weight!) grin

Two boiled eggs, 2 bananas, 1 Apple, large plate rocket, spinach, cucumber, tomato beetroot salad with two slices crusty bread spread with butter, 2 oat cakes, 4 dates, 3 slices garlic bread and one plate of pasta with tuna, sweetcorn and peppers. 3 espresso with a little milk. One glass of kale, celery, mint and spirulina with water smoothie.

That is normal for me and I never fluctuate weight.

3 miles walking briskly and a 3 mile run tonight.

I exercise rarely (at the moment at least), due to full time job and childcare as a single parent. My routine is permenanant fasting following a one meal a day principle. Lots of benefits, very little food watching, lots of mental acuity.

People think it's weird. Zero f***s given. Works for me.

TolpuddleFarter Fri 18-Jan-19 19:32:44

I've eaten

Bowl of blueberries and full fat Greek yoghurt
Two pain au chocolat and a can of coke
Cheese and ham toastie
Chicken and chorizo paella
A couple of squares of rum and raisin chocolate.

I have also walked 16k steps

Take out the pain at chocolate and the cake and that is about a typical day for me. I lose weight, and exercise three times a week. I am 13 stone though so my calorie allowance will be higher than for someone lighter

SkinnyPete Fri 18-Jan-19 19:33:44

I'll spell permanent right one of these years too.

Allice Fri 18-Jan-19 19:35:02

Not much exercise as I normally run but I'm recovering from a back injury so no running 😭 I've managed 8,000 steps

2 bananas
Soya latte
Vegan butternut soup
Cereal bar
Pot of quark with white chocolate options
Homemade Low fat (5% mince, potatoes with no butter, little cheese) cottage pie with steamed carrots

Will probably have a little chocolate too

I am trying to lose a bit of weight, I am at the upper end of the healthy BMI range, but just want to get it down a bit.

Having said that, it’s been no exercise today, and I have eaten...

Breakfast - full fat Greek yoghurt with small sprinkling of mixed bits, some chopped strawberries and a tiny drizzle of honey.

Lunch - jacket potato (it was huge, at a cafe, I ate about 2/3 of the potato) with beef chilli and undressed salad.

Dinner - will be a Cajun chicken skewer, couscous made up with some stock and veggies in, and salad.

I might have a satsuma later. I have probably had 4 cups of tea (milk, no sugar), and just over a litre of water so far.

That was at 1300hrs
I’m doing low carb high fat and a benefit is I’m just not hungry
I did a workout at home. I do circuits as I find it less boring. Plus some aerobics.
