What did you eat yesterday/today?

This is perhaps just to help us be a little more aware of our eating ... and also share ideas.


Breakfast: coffee
Lunch: bacon and avocado salad - delish.
Dinner: some feta chesse and grapes, 2 x 125ml glasses of wine
Midnight snack: two slices of toast and marmalade
Exercise: short swim, sauna and jacuzzi smile

I thought it was a good day, overall. Apart from midnight snack. I was hungry. I think (a) I need to eat more for dinner (b) learn to resist

L jacket spud and chicken and salad (couldn't eat it all)
D lasagne and salad, fruit ands yoghurt

yh Owlina! But funnily I wasn't very hungry yesterday - probably because had big evening meal late the night before! But still the toast thing, annoying!

(I'm on the BSD so aim for 800 cals a day of high fat, low carb food in as few sittings as possible within an 8 hour window (16:8). Have lost almost 4 stone since Jan.)

Breakfast: 2 x medium eggs, scrambled. 1 x wheatgerm toast. Flora light.

Lunch: quick homemade prawn curry using homemade curry paste, peppers, carrots and low fat coconut milk + homemade flatbread (just wholemeal flour and fat free Greek yoghurt).

Dinner: fillet steak, roasted asparagus and roasted tomatoes.

Snacks: 1 x sweet chilli thin cracker + 1 laughing cow light triangle.


Breakfast: 2 x fried eggs on 1 slice wheatgerm toast + marmite.

Lunch: 1 x wholemeal pitta with rocket, tomato, cucumber, Tesco sweet chilli and mango marinated mini chicken fillets + sriracha mayo (using Hellman's light).

Dinner: same prawn curry as yesterday with 35g of brown rice.

Snacks: 2 x biscoff biscuits. Handful of Aldi sweet chilli lentil curls (these are so good!).

Have lost 17lbs so far in 5 weeks (start weight 12st 5lbs/current weight 11st 2lbs/goal weight 10st 0lbs) eating like this. It might not seem a lot but I'm short and naturally petite (however well I've hidden it with blubber) and this amount of food keeps me satisfied while allowing me to lose weight.

I also cut out alcohol completely and am drinking 3 litres of water a day and 2-3 cups of tea (no sugar/sweetener).

Oh and that comes in at around 1100 a day and I weigh absolutely everything and log on MFP.

Disclaimer: I am not on a diet. But I love eating and thinking about food.

I cycled six miles (commute) and ran 6 miles today too so think the exercise cancelled out some of the calories!

AFewThings Mon 18-Sep-17 22:51:34

just to add. its only been a few days but I've noticed I'm feeling quite "steady as she goes". no particular plans or rules, just common sense and not choosing what to eat so much based on impulse or emotions, so to speak. just when I'm hungry and only the minimum needed to satisfy that. it feels good.

AFewThings Mon 18-Sep-17 22:54:20

my exercise a little less demanding Running. Just a nice walk (but thats an achievement for me).

Runningyogabooze Mon 18-Sep-17 23:03:11

A nice walk is all you need afew. I'm always running as I'm always in a rush - today I had to run home from work to collect my child's tennis kit and drop it to school before tennis and get back to work before anyone noticed I'd gone!

I do the exercise for my mental health - it keeps me happy and calm. A side product is that I can stuff my face without feeling too guilty!

AFewThings Mon 18-Sep-17 23:12:47

Sounds fab Running.
