Get rid of the sugar, crisps and biscuits. Then you'll be on the money.
Breakfast (7am) - Cereal or scrambled eggs.
Lunch (12:30) - Home-made soup. An apple, bannana and orange.
Dinner (7pm) - Normally sort of pasta/rice based meal. Home made, the vast majority of the time
Offset with at least 10 cups of coffee a day (milk, one sugar) and sometimes the odd biscuit at night, or some crackers and cheese.
I do tend to have a Saturday night blowout of chocolate or cake though.
Ive already had 2 cans of coke today
I guess I better start looking at my diet properly. You don't build a body like RicF's overnight you know!
well i say crisps as a general as they are cassava "crisps" not potatoe.
hmm dont know how i can survive without the sugar in me T
i dont even touch fizzy drinks as havent ever!
what annoys me is the lack of catering for non fizzy drinkers. if i do go out for a meal i always ask for a non fizzy option and they look at me as if im mental "what no fizzy drink??"
i think the figures are out that altleast 50% of adults in britain will be classed as obese or above by 2020!!!
Jason, like you people are amazed at my appettite (and i'm lighter than you!):
breakfast - kiwi, porridge, 2 poached eggs on brown soda/seed bread, tea
11am - triple-decker oatcake/hummus, nuts, coffee
lunch - big salad, mackerel or similar, pitta bread
afternoon - apple, biscuit
dinner - fish/chicken + sweet potato/pasta + 3 veg, yoghurt and nuts, coffee plus the odd glass of red
10pm - 2 x weetabix, semi-skimmed milk
I run 4 times a week and like yourself have a seemingly quick metabolic rate. Would like to put on a few pounds but doesn't happen.
Alan your 11am snack sounds amazing where can i get myself one of those??
im pretty amazed at how much i can put away! when im having a 'bad' day i can quite easily scoff a whole 15" dominoes pepperoni pizza to myself
the whole calories thing goes out the window for me (havent bothered to calculate on a normal day)
I'll confess that I only stopped eating biscuits 18 months ago.
In my line of business, I have many offers of biscuits. One day, at the first job it was 2 chocolate digestives, 2 cream wafer and shortbread. The second job was 4 chocolate digestives followed by 2 plain digestives, the third job was two kit-kat chunkies.
I only started work at 9:15 and it was now 11:30!
It had to end.
There's nothing I'd chuck from my diet, nothing wrong with everything in moderation.
3 oatcakes (i like Aldi's) - homemade hummus in between - can't beat it!
Today I have had: (I am female, right weight for my height and frame)
Weetabix with semi milk, chopped dried apricots and flaked almonds with bit of sugar.
Ran 11.6 miles
Two pieces of Soya Linseed Toast with sardines and butter; 2 Mr Kipling angel slices (shite tiny cakes)
2 crumpets with bit of butter
Homemade beef stew with carrots and mash
I am not a fan of fruit and could do with more veg but I can't force myself to eat what I don't particularly like. I am eating more carbs as the longer runs are taking force (20 miles on Friday). Will try to eat some blueberries and a banana in a mo just to make myself look more saintly. Everyone could do with tweaking their diets but I try to make sure my 3 main meals are decent and my tea homecooked. The titbits are a bonus that I can eat from continually marathon training!
If I were you, I would aim to try and get some better protein in your sandwich, ham not the best. Egg, tuna etc.
I eat constantly but mainly fruit and veg. Could probably do with more carbs what with all the running, but I do eat lots of oats, so that'll have to do. Today I had:
breakfast: orange juice, 4 cups of coffee (but small cups, not mugs!), blueberries, mango and stewed apple, full fat greek yoghurt, home-made oat/rye granola with lots of nuts (I know, I'm pretentious).
lunch: huge mixed salad with roasted veg, mozzarella, salami. Oh, and an oat cake.
dinner: just about to have some soup and a rye/wheat roll. And then maybe some cheese and more oatcakes and two glasses of wine.
snacks: 2 pears, 1 orange, a pre-run cereal bar.
Works for me, anyway.
Thank god someones had a glass of wine..... I'm 37 days dry !
Ooops wrong thread
Result! The talk of protein above reminded me that I had a scotch egg in my fridge. Am just devouring it now while waiting for my soup to heat up, with some mustard and a huge juicy gherkin (not a euphemism).
what sort of jobs do people do to allow them to eat all day?
