I'm very new here so I'll give a quick introduction to what what I'm doing and what I need help with from all you weight loss champions !
I'm within a healthy BMI category. I was a vegan for two years and had a body that I loved... and a few months ago I started incorporating dairy into my diet and my weight went shooting up. The weight on my body is distributed very unevenly meaning I have a large belly and teeny boney arms ... I look pregnant! Even worse I'm going on holiday in 10 weeks :O Will die if someone asks me when I'm due (again) when I'm on the beach... I have no intention of going back to my vegan diet as I'm a student and veg is so expensive!
Therefore, I've now started a calorie-controlled diet I aim for 1,000-1,200 calories per day (I'm a teeny 5'1), and right now I'm finding it breeze.
Although I have a major, problem... NIGHTSHIFT!!
I do 12 hour night shifts over the weekend. This is a huge problem because I'm left thinking.. what do I take with me as my food for 12 hours? and how do I change my eating pattern to suit that? Usually I would take with me pasta, or crisps, or sandwiches... but now these are all scored out as they're too fatty, too many carbs, etc, etc. It's not like I can make my vegetable bake, or egg white omelette in the middle of work, salad won't fill me up whatsoever ... even then in the morning I'm so tired and lazy to make something healthy to eat, I grab a pastry from the bakery or something...
So here's my major plea... for those in my shoes, (preferably those who also have little money too)... what meat-free food can I eat on night shift ?
