Through whatever method...

I'm using nutracheck, 1400 cals a day and have had

Bowl cereal and milk
Meatball marinara subway, latte for lunch.
Huge avocado, chicken salad. Few bits of chocolate.

Yesterday I had a bowl of muesli for breakfast, a noodle broth for lunch and 2 eggs on toast for dinner (followed by 2 more slices of toast) - I also did a home workout circuit and walked a lot. My total calories for the day were 1587 or something.

Today so far i've had a meal replacement shake for breakfast (in the car) and am currently sipping a skinny latte!

Fitterbysixty Wed 27-Jul-16 10:25:37

My standard breakfast is 1/4 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of water and 1/4 cup of milk cooked with a bit of salt. Some mornings I have it with three apricots chopped with the kitchen scissors, some mornings I have it with two chopped prunes. It's not terribly exciting but I would rather eat the same thing every day than have to think before 8am.

For lunch yesterday I had a small bread roll with 1/3 pot of hummous and a slice of ham, for dinner I sauted two courgettes and then poured over three beaten eggs and 30g of cheese. I finished it under the grill and it made a big plate full of deliciousness. You could do it with two eggs and no cheese. With lots of tea and a latte mine was a 1350 calorie day.

This is exactly what I need. A simple confessional thread to keep me focused!

Yesterday I had:
B: egg and spinach
L: homemade homous and salad wrap
D: bolognese with small portion of pasta and large portion of peas and kale, cheddar
Snacks: handful of cashews and some cherries
Supper: greek yoghurt, pumpkin seeds and drizzle of honey
Hot milk before bed

OH has just done the food shop, but it doesn't look too unhealthy so hopefully I'll be able to stick to it!

I'm 11st 8 this morning (1lb down), and just want to lose a few pounds before ttc soon. Also doing physio for back problems, so have to do those exercises three times a day, but can't do much else, although I want to start walking everyday.

2 weetabix and semi skimmed milk
Tuna light mayo with baked potato and lettuce
Chilli con carne with rice, small side plate portion
Choc ice

2 weetabix semi skimmed milk
Not sure about lunch maybe same as yesterday
Dinner probably lean burger with chips (all homemade)
No snacks

I'm losing 2lbs a week and need to be strict as I'm getting married end of May and have almost 3 stone to go

hownottofuckup Wed 27-Jul-16 11:09:21

2 scrambled eggs and half an avocado
A wrap with coleslaw, cheese, pineapple and a packet of crisps
Homemade rice pudding
Egg fried rice with peas, Thai green stir fried veg
Natural yoghurt

2 pieces wholemeal toast and butter, 3 eggs scrambled in butter and half an avocado
My plan is to have nothing till tea time which will be a man, salad, lamb burger, blue cheese sauce and chilli sauce.

Goodness only knows what diet plan I think I'm following!

hownottofuckup Wed 27-Jul-16 11:10:30

Oh and I had a magnum yesterday too blush but I shared it with the baby he had at least half

PickAChew Wed 27-Jul-16 11:23:06


Muesli, soya milk, banana,vstrawberry and coffee.

Fish finger sarnie: 5 fish fingers stacked in one thick slice of bread, shredded cos and mayo.

Chicken with garlic mushrooms and bacon, roast new potatoes, carrots and cavolo Nero.

A rather rancid pack of beefy Seabrook crisps. Won't bother with another.

Came in at about 1250 calories, though my mfp allowance is nearer 1400 - more if I get a good vwalk in. Been at it since may and lost a steady pound a week.

Fitterbysixty Wed 27-Jul-16 11:28:02

I have the same name on mfp for anyone who wants to friend me. Don't judge me on how many calories come from wine though.

2 pikelets ( thin crumpets) with smoked salmon

More smoked salmon. Large salad with olives. 1/4 pack feta cheese

Roasted peppers, courgette and olives with chicken breast mixed into wholewheat penne. Green pesto.

Had a peanut butter magnum after yoga- oops! Will have no treats for next few days now though.

Have lost 2st 9lb so far.

CharleyDavidson Wed 27-Jul-16 16:41:59

No breakfast.
Mcdonalds chicken selects and fries for lunch (700 of my 1400 blown straight away )
Dinner will be home made mini pizzas using Warburton thins for bases and with plenty of veg piled on top.

I will have 250 cals left and will have done two exercise classes today - one at 9 am, one at 7 pm.

OSETmum Wed 27-Jul-16 17:26:21

Breakfast: glass of milk
Lunch: tuna wrap
Dinner: roast chicken, stuffing, roast potatoes, roast carrots, courgette and leeks and gravy
Snacks: 3 thorntons continental chocolates and a small ice cream blush

It's amazing how much the thorntons chocolates add to your calories angry but myfitnesspal says I'll have had 1220 calories after dinner so not too bad I guess. Oh I also did an insanity max 30 workout but try not to eat back those calories.

OhHolyFuck Wed 27-Jul-16 17:31:21

Spinach and potato curry with cauliflower rice for breakfast (I'd just come off a night shift, all mixed up and starving!)
Overnight oats with strawberries for lunch
Fancy a fish finger sandwich for dinner

Today I have had:

B: tried those banana and egg pancakes (one small banana and one egg blended), but far too sweet for me.
L: felafel, homous and massive salad
D: Healthy version of pork and stirfry rice made by OH.
S: a few brazil nuts, grapes and cherries
Just having a hot milk (I find something like milk, banana or yoghurt before bed stops me feeling hungry at night so I usually have something).

BrieAndChilli Wed 27-Jul-16 22:35:57

I've had
Breakfast - 2 mushrooms, small slice of cheese, slice of bacon with fat cut off and 1/2 a poached egg (White was runny so left half of it)

Slice of cantaloupe melon.

Have reported Yakub's post for spamming. (And being nonsense).

Neome Wed 27-Jul-16 23:35:02

I think this thread might help me, I will take note tomorrow and come back.

Yesterday i had a Juice Plus shake for breakfast (i was suckered in last year but keepsome powder for breakfasts some days) - it was chocolate, coconut milk and peanut butter, Lunch was a chana chaat flat bread from pret and dinner was chicken stir fry with rice noodles.

Today i;ve had a skinny latte and im not hungry yet. Lunch I will get a salad with some eggs and dinner is gonna be burgers with mushroom bun, cheese, relish and salad.

Tomorrow is my day off and thats when i really struggle. I'll have scrambled eggs for breakfast with avocado, lunch i'll do pitta pizza for the toddler and maybe have the same and dinner i think i'll bbq some chicken if the weather is ok.

L: chicken and olive salad with chilli sauce

I am doing a weird mash up of SW and calorie counting and low carb. Lost 4 stone since Christmas.
