    Hi guys.

    I just wondered what your average day is like (food wise). I'm getting stuck in a bit of a rut & could do with some low cal ideas. It would also confirm if I'm on the right track.

    Thanks & good luck with it all

    It all looks good to me CC! It's good that you can still include things u like. I'm still st the if I have one piece of choc I'll want 3 bars. So I'm trying to go without for now. Then I'll introduce it bk slowly. Choc n cheese are my downfall!

    Good luck with it all

    I think if I tried to cut it out entirely I'd crave them more but I can stop at 1...most of the time lol, if i have extra cals and I want another I will have it. I have an open tin of Roses and have only had 4...could have had 2 wafers at 82 cals each instead of the 4 individual chocs!

    Those wafers are worth getting, taste very chocolately only 82 cals and only 42p for 6. I LOVE sainsburys basics for gems like that

    I usually have cereal or fruit and yoghurt for breakfast; a sandwich or just some chicken or ham on its own for lunch; and variable dinners of around 500 calories. I also snack on 100 cal chocolate bars or packets of crisps, fruit and Slim-A-Soups. I tend to keep to 200 cals for breakfast, 400 cals for lunch and 500 cals for dinner, leaving 100 cals for a snack if I'm keeping to my 1200 cal daily target. However if I feel I need it, I will go up to 1400ish. The trick for me is avoiding the rigidity that weight loss plans can often force; I know if I feel I *can't* have something when I really want it then I'll just feel deprived and rebel! I've also begun to look at my eating over the course of a week rather than a single day, as some days I will eat a fair bit but on others I keep the cals low. It balances out and helps me avoid the obsession! :)

    I'll tend to have a cup of tea and either some fruit or a poached egg or a low fat yoghurt for breakfast. I've never really eaten breakfast, so it's probably the hardest meal of the day for me.

    Lunch is often soup. I love the Covent Garden ones, but I also love Miso Soup (which is ridiculously low in cals) I'll also tend to have either fruit or yoghurt (whichever I didn't have for breakfast!)

    Evening meal is pretty much always something with salad, but I'll chuck all sorts of things in to keep the salad interesting. Quails eggs and artichokes in it tonight, with either grilled salmon or chicken depending on how I feel later.

    I'm not really snacking at all, but if I have to I'd either boil an egg (unless I've had one for breakfast or elsewhere in the day), grab a few grapes or have a Go Ahead yoghurt bar.

    I'm doing similar things. I'm like u letty, I have started planning a week instead of a day. I find it helps me.

    I'm doing roughly:

    B - cereal &/or fruit
    L - soup
    D - chicken or fish with salad or veg
    Snacks - fruit or fat free yogurt

    I try not to have choc, but I can feel a craving coming on.

    I think I might start making my own soups (if I have time) my friend made a beautiful butternut squash & corriandar one. It's inspired me.

    Can I ask if you are sticking to the cals at Christmas or are you eating what you want?
