    I am doing a red day today & wanted to be prepared at work. I have only done a few red days before & know alot of people get a bit hungry on these days. Somehow i have managed to bring to work -

    A tub of melon & pineapple
    A bidlg tub of salad with salmon (1/2 salad 1/2 salmon
    4 big slices of ham
    2 plums & an apple
    A hifi bar

    I've already had my brekkie!

    Even as i was putting it all in my bag i was thinking, this is a lot of food!

    Thoughts people? I am a big believer in eating as much as you need, and didn't want to end up hungry at work with only a expensive m&s to buy food from, hence all the food but am a little worried! I know its all sf & free (or. Heb) but still!

    It sounds fine to me. I do mainly red or green as I find it easier to have 4 healthy extras rather than 2.

    You have lots of speed & superspeed there.

    I have the same issues at work, there are lots of sandwich shops nearby but none sw friendly. I have to be prepared with full day's food. Forgot my lunch (made it, didn't pick it up) and I was in a bad mood all day, lol, stressing about syns and annoyed at wasting £5!

    In my opinion, as long as you eat until you're full and not stuffed it's never too much. :)

    Same, I'm doing a relief work job today so don't usually have an awful lot to do so to avoid snacking on the lovely cakes and treats that are usually knocking about I have:
    Jacket Potato
    Cottage cheese (both for lunch)
    2 mullerlights
    2 hartleys jellies
    1 highlights hot choc sachet
    and in case that's not enough there is also a load of fruit in the kitchen I can graze on as I please.
    and that's all just to last me till 4pm!!!! :D

    When I get all my food out my bag at work it's like Mary Poppins, people at work laugh at me, and they don't know I'm on a diet so they must think I'm a right greedy cow!

    Especially if I'm a Double shift and have to take in breakfast, lunch & dinner and snacks in case I'm hungry, there is no facilities at a weekend so the only food available is a vending machine and no shops near by.

    Doesn't look a huge amount to me! It's just 1) a salmon & ham salad 2) some fruit 4) a HiFi bar. I eat *at least* that much for lunch/morning snacks every day! Probably more veggies/fruit or a piece of cheese instead of the HiFi bar.

    Youve definitely got no problems there :D
