    .....on a normal day?

    i was just thinking that if people posted their meals (a little like one big, joint food diary) then we could give each other ideas for mixing up our low cal meals? i tend to find that i eat a lot of the same things because i know the calorie content, but we can add recipes to the thread, and it'll give everyone ideas for more varied diets (that we dont have to pre-count)

    i aim for 300 for breakfast, 400 for lunch and 500 for dinner. so here i am today:

    2 weetabix + skimmed milk + banana = 300

    chicken noodle soup with wholemeal pita bread with tuna = 400

    for tea i dont know what to haaaaave! i've had a lot of salmon this week so i want a bit of a change. any ideas??

    Here is mine since I have been on refeed, but I was on lipotrim, so I had to follow a strict diet the first few days.

    i have discovered something tasty and relatively low cal that really fills you up!!

    in asda i found these sharwoods sachets (the size of the uncle bens microwave rice) it's curry - there are 5 different kind. today i had vegetable curry which was 208 cals for the whole packet and two pieces of nimble bread = 100 cals.

    that's 308 cals for a tasty lunch and i'm still really full over two hours later. i'm thinking they'd make an excellent dinner with a portion of boiled wholemeal rice. yumyum.

    (they're on offer for a pound a packet in asda atm)

    Calorie counting plain and simple :)
    Yesterday I had:

    B: Granola & skim milk - 300cal
    S: banana raspberry & orange smoothie (homemade) - 150cal
    L: Soup - 160cal
    S: SF jelly, red delicious apple, almonds = 200cal
    D: mince & wholewheat pasta, steamed carrots & cauliflower = 300cal (small portion)
    S: cadburys fudge bar, small cadburys bar (20g) = 200cal
    Total: 1300cals approx

    As you can see I subscribe to the little and often thing!

    Today: (went out exercising today so I'm allowed 500 extra cals :D - I do it by cutting out 1000cals a day in diet, then whatever I exercise I just add those calories on top so today is 1900cal allowance, whoop!)

    B: 2 x scrambled eggs, 1 slice wholegrain toast, 1 clementine: 400cals
    S: 4 almonds = 24cal,
    1 20g dairy milk = 100cals
    L: probably DC soup again, usually 150cal
    S: rice cakes & houmous? = about 150?
    D: DC pack (I'm thinking Lamb hotpot) plus veg. = about 400cal
    S: SF jelly probably. = 7cal
    = about 1250 at a guess.

    I don't know excact cals (sorry) but roughly here is what I have quite often:

    Breakfast: small bowl of special K original with s.s.milk approx 200 cals (if you have the recommended 30g with 125ml s.s.milk this is 171 cals) so I take 200 as I now measure by eye.

    Lunch: 3 rivita at 34 cals each, with Tescos own low fat soft cheese (in a tub) I have about 50 cals of this. Some fruit, about 100 cals.
    so approx 252 cals total for lunch

    Evening meal: Dried Penne Pasta (fresh has much more cals in I believe so stick to dried) not sure of the grams as I prepare the meal for me and hubby.
    Add tin of tuna (regular size) and 2 table spoons of low fat mayo..
    to this I add a sprinkle of grated cheese.
    You can also add sweetcorn but that's more cals and it tates GORGEOUS without it so I don't bother anymore.

    I usually count about 600 for Tuna Pasta coz when I first started counting cals that is what I calculated it to and I try to stick to the same portion size.

    As a treat I usually have some sugar free jelly in the fridge and count nothing for that, as it works out at about 4 cals per pot that i make. I also have mini twisters in the freezer at 45cals each and they are soooo gorgeous, and ideal for those with a terrible sweet tooth like me.

    so approx 1100cals for this day.

    Oh my goodness, I had the yummiest healthy dessert last night. Low fat natural yoghurt, raspberries on top and 1tsp sugar (ok that bit was bad I know but hey it's 20cals and made it taste amazing!) which was about 100cals in total (61cal for yog, 19 for r's & 20 for sugar). deeeeelicious.

    Loving the sound of that lemon & honey chicken, yum!

    Today I had:
    B: lizi's granola & 50g low fat strawberry yog = 300cal
    S: 2 x rice cake, 20g houmous and cucumber + clementine = 160cal
    L: minestrone soup + brown bread = 220cal
    S: fudge bar, 30g mixed nuts & raisins, apple = 300cal
    D: lamb hotpot (look what we found), garlic mushrooms, steamed carrot & courgette = 350cal
    150g yog = 40cal
    S: 20g chocolate bar, highlights mocha = 150cal.

    Total = 1520 cal

    (must do some exercise tonight to use those 'extra' 120cals up).

    960? that's not a lot! what you aiming for? - dunno if i could manage that!

    i had home-made carrot soup for lunch with 2 slices of wholemeal nimble. i worked out the calories, and it's virtually nothing and reeeally tasty! i made a massive batch with a kilo of carrots, crushed some coriander and mustard seed and added some tabasco sauce - the whole pan had less than 300 cals and made about 4 portions! yum.

    why is it so difficult to eat well when you're poorly? i think it's just a comfort thing. i had half a pizza and some wedges (650cals) and THEN ate half a bag of haribo afterwards! :eek:

    naughty rhuba.

    plus i havent been to the gym yet this week coz of this damn head cold. i feel a bit crap tbh. i'm trying my best today and am gona try and stick to 1000 cals today to make up for the horrendous mess i made of my diet yesterday!! just gona keep munching on bowls of carrot soup, low cal, vitamin c and fills me up!!

    :) don't beat yourself up too much rhuba! I mean for one thing you're halfway there with your weight loss. Another, is that you're doing something about your weight before it's a real problem. One off day is not going to send the world crashing down.
    I love home made soup it's so yummy and (especially if you don't use potato) low calorie as well.
