What's everyone eat?

Postby Buttercup167 » Thu Jan 12, 2012 8:14 pm

:) Hi all,

As I'm a newbie, I'd really like to hear from you what a typical days food menu is for you? Breaky, snacks, lunch, dinner.

I'd appreciate any replies!!!!

Here's what I have.....

Brekkie:
boiled egg
1 slice of helgas wholemeal bread
nespresso pod
220ml pura light start milk
total of 277 calories

Lunch
50gm salad mix
1 medium tomato
30g fetta cheese
80g grilled skinless chicken
1 slice of helgas wholemeal bread
total of 306 calories
OR
2 slices helgas sourdough
serve of hans 97% fat free ham
2 slices coon light and tasty cheese
total of 377 calories

Dinner is either a serve of chicken or lean lamb steak cooked in water with 10g of the Gourmet Garden morrocan spice mix or thai spice mix; served with some ainsley harriot couscous. That usually comes in between 480-500 calories. I've also had a seak sandwich (bread, steak, onion, tomato, low fat cheese, mayonnaise) which comes in around 520 calories. or grilled chicken and rice with light soy sauce (520 calories as well).

I've also bought a couple of the lean cuisine meals as they come in between 3-400 calories and are useful for nights when I CBF weighing, cooking and counting calories.

Other than lettuce, tomato and onion I'm not eating a lot of veggies which is a bad thing. No morning or afternoon tea (haven't done morning or afternoon tea since I left school!). A snack, if I need one, would be slice of bread with low fat goats cheese spread (140 cals), a banana, or some sliced mango.


I've also found some great recipes which I'm going to try out in the recipe section of this website - including one for chicken pie!!!!!!

I've never been one to measure out portions, it makes me feel like im on a diet, and i don't like that.

Breakest is either Organic Honey/vanilla yougurt ( Jalna or BD farm, full fat ) or Half of either a Rockmellon or Honey dew

Snack will be apple,bannana or a couple oranges

Lunch will Be some kinda wholemeal roll sandwhich wiht Lettuce, tomato, avacado, mayo ( full fat ) usually raw fish or fresh cut meat

For dinner i love my veggies, LOVE EM! I fill my plate with Potatoes, carrots, green beans, brussel sprouts you name it. Usually i don't have meat fr dinner but if i do Chicken is a good way to go.

If you haven't noticed I dont use reduced fat, or low sodium products. I am a follower of Micheal Pollan. Author of books like, " The Omnivores DIlema" , " In Defense of Food " and several others. I have never come across a more in depth explenation of our food system and the benefits of whole, unadulturated foods. 30kg to go GET KEEN!

Thanks Bossman...

I am not keen on weighing things either lol.

I don't want this to be a 'diet' as such - but a change of lifestyle. So I want to be able to eat a huge variety of things and not be stuck with the same things every day.

One of the rules that micheal pollan gives is " Eat well, not to much, mostly plants. " So eat healthy unprocessed food, eat until you are satisfied wthout over endulging. keep your plate 85/15. 85% plant, 15% meat or pasta. Hope this helps

Thanks for all the replies everyone, really interesting.

I've had so many people tell me to give up bread, rice & pasta. Do you agree?[

I was reading some stuff today (as part of a uni course I am doing) and had to watch a lecture by Dr Peter Dingle - he talks about the Dingle DEAL - Diet, Environment, Attitude and Lifestyle. Interesting stuff.

he says we should not eat ANY grains at all - he doesn't appear to be a meat eater either - just vegies, fruits and fish from what I could tell...

Not sure I am prepared to give up everything. I think what the dietician told me is a good rule = 1/4 carbs, 1/4 protein & 1/2 veg fro a meal is a fairly balanced diet.

Made the chicken pie recipe on this website this evening.

Delicious!!!!!!!

This website says its 322 calories per serve (6 in a pie). My iPhone app said 331 according to what I put in so not much difference.

Highly recommend trying it.

As for measuring and weighing things - I have a problem with portion control. By measuring exactly what I'm eating I'm keeping a handle on what's going into my mouth.

I tried eating 5 meals a day (smaller portions) and Im still sticking with it because it gives reaalllyyyy good results as far as speed up metabolism and losing weight.

9am breakfast: oatmeal, boiled eggs and such
12pm lunch: chicken breast, brown rice, tuna fish, beans etc..
3pm: just pure protein as meal replacement
6pm dinner: same healthy food examples as in lunch
9pm: fruits and vegetables

Hi,

I am Rachael. I agree, smaller more frequent meals seems the way to go (no more than 4 hours in between). For breakfast I either make a berry and banana smoothie (with skim milk, and skim organic yoghurt- yalna or 5:am) or have 2 eggs scrambled with a piece of fruit.

I absolutely adore carbs and would never be able to give them up completely, I have just switched to spelt and sprouted grain bread which packs a lot of goodness in there as well. I like to have a sandwich for lunch (philly, ham, lettuce, tomato) and usually a piece of fruit (passionfruit, blueberries and grapefruit are my seasonal favorites at the moment).

For the afternoon I will have some low fat yoghurt, some nuts and fruit). For a treat I will (more often than I would like) sneak a piece of dark chocolate. Which for me, and a glass of red wine, I think supersedes the calories with other health (and enjoyment) factors! I may substitute yoghurt for white goats cheese (chevre with ash is generally the pick).

Dinner is always my downfall. I eat with my naturally slim partner who can seriously eat for a 74kg man! I am trying to get in the habit of reducing my portion size rather than completely overhauling what we eat. We use olive oil, and always try and fill our plates with plenty of salad (I try to avoid white dressings and stick with a splash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil) or vegetables. We are slowly getting in to the habit of reducing the number of carb meals a week. I cook a mean lasagne and him some mean pad see eiw so it's pretty hard! But we do what we can, brown rice, light coconut milk in curries, etc.

I try and line carb meals up with days that I do weight/resistance training at the gym. Days I do cardio only I try and steer clear of the rice and pasta meals.

I am a sucker for swhepps flavoured mineral water and diet cokes but I have weaned myself off them and am trying to up my water intake instead (which has been historically very poor). I think I will buy some flavoured iced tea from T2 to have as an alternative to the soft drinks.

Well that's about it for me :)
Cheers

Don't do breakfast! I know very bad :S

Lunch - 1-2 slices toast, poached egg, smoked salmon or homemade veggie soup and salad sandwich. Low cal museli/dessert bar - about 400 calories.

Afternoon snack - fruit - 100 calories

Dinner - usually a weightwatchers/lean cusine meal with extra serve of veggies or salad and a nestle diet dessert - 500 calories

Evening snack - couple of crackers/cucumber and some fruit - 50-100 calories

Total: 1100 (my current daily target)


Perhaps unconventional, not really like anything in the diet books/articles but feels more normal for me and not a "diet"! I feel like I eat like normal people :) Has worked so far!
