    Hi :D

    That is a terrible diet! how can you possible survive on that!
    In a day i eat:
    Breakfast: Banana, fresh orange
    Lunch: Tuna Roll or soup
    Tea: Salad or pasta
    Supper: Toast
    and when i want to snack i have chocolate or crisps! and im not overweight, its a normal diet! i used to starve myself and i bloated up like a fish! so eat a balanced diet!

    Love xx

    that is a good diet. you should probably eat something more like this. you could maybe even do with eating a little bit more....

    I'm supposed to be eating more to put on weight, typical isnt it? :rolleyes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Two piece of bread and a yoghurt.

    I used to eat like there was no tomorrow. And after getting some new medicine, I can go a day without noticing that I need to eat.

    I don't like it, as I really appericiate food. And I hate declining stuff I like, as I can't eat it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I really admire people who eat breakfast, lunch and tea.

    Im not really hungry that often but I really should just try stuffing myself with food to get fatter..... any tips?

    Well you'd lose a lot more weight if you ate something fibre/carbohydrate based as soon as you got up (ie cereal and skimmed milk) and then something with protein and a bit of carbohydrates for lunch (ie chicken sandwich).

    At present not only are you damaging your health but you're also not losing as much weight as you would do if you did as suggested- which should increase your metabolism a lot.

    And obviously excersise helps!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    No Breakfast No Lunch but a meal for Dinner is most days (im fat it loses weight) but sometimes if i feel faint ill eat a sausage roll or sumit at lunch an i drink bottles of diet coke an evian and huge amounts of polos.

    Breakfast: Glass of orange juice, bowl of cereal
    Break: Two pieces of fruit (satsuma/grapes/banana)
    Lunch: Peanut butter sandwiches, carton of fruit juice, cake, maybe chocolate
    After school: Pitta bread+jam or chocolate spread
    Dinner: What Mum cooks - egg fried rice, stir fry, pizza+chips, jacket potato+coleslaw
    Evening: Cup of tea, a biscuit or three :P

    I don't drink enough water though; about 3 glasses a day, compared to 6-8 recommended!

    i have muesli for breakfast and a cup of coffee. I usually have a sandwhich or something for lunch, and for dinner i usually make something nice. last night we had brocolli in cheese sauce. I also snack throughout the day, ive already had a topic bar, and nick bits of whatever my sons eating, like muesli bars or nick bites out of his apple. I dont drink enough water, but ive recently discovered copella apple juice and cant stop drinking it. its made with freshly pressed apples instead of from a concentrate, and it tastes really different from normal apple juice.

    Today I've had...

    wholemeal tomato sandwich for breakfast.
    tesco low fat roasted veg arrabiata followed by a mullerlite for lunch
    for dinner I'll probably have quorn chilli that is virtually fat free or boiled rice with roasted veg and soy sauce.

    I've also had a litre of water and 2 cans of diet coke. I'll prob drink another litre of water.

    This is a good day for me. I swing betwen having the worlds best diet and being super strict to eating the biggest load of crap ever. I'm an all or notthing kinda girl.

    It's also v.likely that I will gt very drunk tonight, which is hundreds of empty cals.
