frozen meals

Postby gonnamakeit » Wed Jul 18, 2007 3:31 pm

Hope this is the right place... apologies if its not :)

I was just wondering if things like lean cuisines and other frozen "diet" kind of meals are any good for you? I am eating one at the moment but feeling as though I would be better off with something else, I'm just not sure what :oops: I struggle at lunch time to think of what to eat - usually I will resort to a bowl of pasta but I dont think that is very good :lol:

They are far to high in High GI carbs for me but if you're not worried about your carb intake then they are fine as a meal.

hmmm well I've been told cutting down on carbs is probably a good idea... I guess I should take that into account then. I will have a search of recipes - thanks! :)

I keep a few in the freezer for convenience (for example, getting home late, it's easy to throw one in the microwave rather than have some quick and easy junk food) and the other benefit is that when I ate them regularly for about a month, they helped me with portion control and learning exactly what the size of a meal should be. I found I eat less now because I got in the habit of eating less. Hope that makes sense!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I think the are good to have as an emergency back up, they are high in sodium and most of them don't have enough vegetables.

i know it's not the best weather for it, but i was advised to eat a salad and about 150g of tuna/salmon for lunch. that's a really good low carb lunch. my other alternative was a rye bread sandwich with lean meat & salad.

i often have some soup though - i find that fairly filling. although if it's the tinned varieties, then you need to watch the sodium levels :)

other than that, it's still good to have them on hand as the others have said as a 'just in case'

I have used them when I am in the throes of exams and really cannot contemplate decision making ...... some of them taste great.

I thought that you could buy lo-GI and lo-carb versions too........

The sodium levels are usually high, but as an occasional meal it would probably be preferable to some other take-away options!
