I'm sure this will sound very silly, but I'd like some advice on what foods to eat. Basically, I'm on a diet and trying to lose weight. Why am I on a running forum? I am starting running again too so, I am eating porridge for breakfast every day, with either a banana or some raisins in it, which makes it actually quite tasty (without it, it's so boring)
But for lunch/dinner, I don't know any healthy foods which I like really. For lunch (I work in an office, so there is a microwave), but are sandwiches unhealthy? I have started eating stuff like noodles/pasta/baked potatoes and stuff, which I know it's that healthy, but not that bad either? The problem is, I don't really like vegtables, which is obviously a pretty bad issue
What foods are filling, and healthy?
Thanks for any help guys!
Well, I'm 18 (not necessarily a valid excuse), but I'm awful at cooking. So easy stuff to cook is great - Mum has gone away for a week haha, so I dunno what to do. I have stuff like pasta to cook.
In terms of veggies, some of them aren't so bad - Lettuce, Peas, well not alot to be honest. I don't mind vegtables like peppers, carrots, onions and tomatoes when my Mum makes them in homemade stuff, like Curry, Chili, casseroles etc.
I've researched GI a little bit, but still not 100% sure what it is. I thought GI meant how filling a food is? to make you not hungry? or something? Argh, I don't know.
But in terms of losing weight, what foods are good?
You say eat small portions but frequently. However (i'm not saying you are wrong!) but I heard it is good to eat 3 meals per day, and not to snack in between was very important?
Argh, I don't know!

Have a look at 'Optimum Nutrition 4 Sport' it is a great website. I 'discovered' the site after discovering 'aclimatising to fat burning' in various locations. Including 'Advanced Marathoning' by Pete Pfitzinger. I had never heard of it despite more years of competition than I care to admit! The author is saying that you should balance your carbohydrate, fat and protein intake; not exactly revolutionary stuff! He says that low fat = high sugar+salt. and I think he explains high GI foods saying that they are not good for you and why. I am 'aclimatising' myself at the moment and it is working for me (at the moment) would appreciate other opinions on the site
The only problem with reading the site (Optimum nutrition 4 sport) was the author made running a 100 mile ultra marathon sound easy! Consequently, I have entered my first 'ultra' in the Black Mountains 23rd March 2013.... as a birthday present to myself! The logic being that if 100 miles is so easy then 35 miles is just a stroll in the park! I am so screwed am I not? The men in white coats have a new customer!!!
