how well do you eat

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
on a whole, normally, not diets or fads like that

i drink craploads of fresh fruit juice and water, so fizzy drinks just taste too sweet now, unless theyre mixed with spirits ;)

i eat some fruit, and quite a lot fo vegetables, eat a lot of meat, but at least its meat ive prepared myself so its a bit better

lots of potatoes or rice or pasta i love

ready meal portions are too small for me

have take away like twice a week on top too

basicaly i eat a good mix of real food, but a lot of it, so no complaints from me overall i think :)

    I eat very badly. Take today, all be it i slept it extremely late i have had anything to eat today. D'ya know something, not eating doesnt really bother me because right now im very fed up with everything,im almost verging on the " i dont care anymore" attitude

    I do drink loads of fizzy drinks.

    When i do eat its normally at least 1 meal a day, dont really eat snacks, have the rare bowl of cereal.

    I haven't been eating as well as I should be for the past four months. :(
    I haven't been eating enough for a start, burning up more calories than I'm eating, so I've lost half a stone. And nor am I eating enough proper meals. Just grabbing whatever I can when I feel like it, mainly because I'm too tired to be arsed to cook properly. This is mainly because of working on rebuilding a car for the past few months. Leaving me too tired.
    I used to try and eat a proper meal about 3-4 times a week at least, and no more than a choccy bar a day (as a treat). Now I'm lucky if I have a couple of decent meals a week. The rest is whatever I can make in five minutes before I crash out.

    Im pretty much the same at the mo, apart from the car bit! I can remember last summer (not the one just gone) that I had the biggest appetite Ive ever had. It was madness and I guess Im one of the lucky ones thast doesnt put on the weight if I eat a lot. My appetite has been quite crappy lately (made a thread bout it) but I do like food. Odd really :confused:

    'cos im in a rugby academy i have been told about diets etc. So i have:

    Breakfast: Porridge or if im playin rugby in the morning toast and coco pops.

    Lunch- Couscous and tuna salad, or sometimes just sandwiches. With banana and oatcakes with houmous and chicken roll with it.

    Dinner-I have a hot meal like roast dinner, spag bol, pasta, pie and spuds etc.

    And for snakcs i have more fruit, carrot cake or a shake with bio yogurt and fruit in.

    I would say this is pretty healthy. And it helps loving salad and fruit anyway.

    horrifically badly.

    i eat a lot of junk and general shit. i'd love to eat proper, healthy meals, but i'm just a really lazy cook.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Fairly well most of the time.

    I'm 7stone2 and can eat what the hell I like and not put on an onze!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I really quite like cooking, and as a result I have a pretty healthy diet :thumb: I don't tend to snack in between either - If I do, it's because I havn't had enough to eat at lunch/breakfast whatever.


    I don't do enough* excersize mind :p

    Well, I suppose it's not that bad, since I haven't noticed any weight changes. The weekly menu usually includes all of the following, at different days and times:
    Pasta, pizza, chips, fish, beans, peas, chick-peas, tiny cheese pies... Meat and fast-food are not as common, though not a rare sight (or taste).
    ETA the non-"meal" things: Several snacks and biscuits/cookies are a given at least once a day, but so is a glass of tangerine juice, and grapes or chestnuts, depending on the season. Most days also include a carrot or tomato.

    I use to be a good wee eater. Though these days I've notice I've been eating more junk food than normal. So really need to watch myself. Try and lose a bit of weight so on christmas day I can stuff my bake without having to worry about putting on any extra weight. I do lurve me Christmas Dinners :D

    Normally, I eat pretty well. I usually eat around 3/4 portions of fruit/veg a day and never eat fried foods. I have around 2-3 ready meals a week - but they're always eaten with fresh steamed veg. I always look for a low number of saturated fats.

    I have 1-2 chocolate bars a week, and Batchelor's Super Noodles are my downfall lol. I usually buy Tesco's Chelsea buns, because they're stunning and have less than 2g's of saturated fat :D

    Recently though, because of my IBS, I've not had much of an appetite and have been living on tesco's cheesy mash and fresh tomatoes. I've lost over half a stone and have no idea how!!

    I don't eat enough due to a lack of appetite, but what I do eat is very healthy. I love fruits and vegetables and I have a natural dislike for greasy and processed foods.

    My diet is very dairy laden.

    If I'm putting something in my mouth, it's most likely fruit, veggie, or dairy.

    it's not much fun.

    i don't know how tall RG is, but i'm still quite short, weigh very slightly less, and look like i'm about to die.

    not sexy.

    I have been eating a lot of food lately and most of it is crap, for some reason I am always hungry, I must burn it off very quickly because i cannot put weight on at all.
    I have been stuck at 8 stone for about 2 years now ( I am 20) and I am quite tall 5'6" so I look very slim.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm only 5foot2. My frame is very small though so I don't actually look skinny (I hope).

    I always try and eat well, apart from a friday night of course when i have my well deserved take-away :p

    For breakfast i might have some form of oats/ready break but only if i'm hungry.

    Lunch is soup with crusty bread yum, it used to be baxters out of a tin but i have found a new love in cup a soups that are no way near as rank as i rememberd.

    Dinner is usually a pasta dish or some form of grilled chicken and vegetables, or maybe if i'm lazy a jacket potatoe or a stir fry.

    I don't snack or eat chocolate or sweets, although i always have an apple and a satsuma just for something to munch on.

    Not too bad i guess.

    I try to eat well - but my major downfall is eating out - which I do a couple of times a week and wine - I drink about half a bottle a night and i have on average a can of diet coke a day.

    I try and be good though and in the summer I have melon oj and coffee for breakfast and replace melon with bran flakes in the winter.

    Then for lunch I genearally have a slima soup, apple and a piece of pitta bread.

    And for tea i'll either cook something myself - like a stew or pasta and salad or chillie or something like that - I normally do a starter rather than desert because I don't like sweet things.

    Gaah but its the eating out - I try to be good but I just love food far to much. I so need to loose weight and eat less - but to be honest I just can't figure out how to eat any less i mean untill dinner time I hardly eat anything really and whats worse you can eat less and less as you grow up by the time im 50 i'll be eating an apple a day and still be getting fatter. Though the wine and coffee do help.......
