Did you eat the steak and kidney pie chips peas and gravy? Hopefully that was just a dream I’d settle for just the chips and gravy, not something you can get where I live!

Oh noes, I didn't have it, I'm trying to be good, it was just what I could have eaten but I was wondering who else would want that at midnight after a day of decent food? Only me! :D

7.6 @ 8.26 / weight 14stones 10.2pounds / tum 49 1/2
B: pint water with fibre / Mug Oxo / pint water with meds
L: small can pork luncheon meat, garlics, spring onions, 2 tomatoes microwaved in olive oil
Snack: Nescafe with dash whole milk, carton of cottage cheese
D: Chicken Salad with cheesy coleslaw and new potatoes in some kind of sauce... Bowl strawberries and single cream / pint water

My bro at it again, I say what I am allowed to have and he gives me what he wants me to have ie the potatoes and the cheesy coleslaw, probably okay, but my weight doesn't go down on this type of food. I would have rather had just the plain chicken and a pile of salad. Good job he's only here three times a week!

Today I demonstrated that being too busy to eat much in the day just makes you starving in the evening

Breakfast: small bacon medallion sandwich and a coffee (19g)

Lunch: Kvarg raspberry yoghurt. Pepperami chicken bites. (7g)

Snack: One slice toast with some chicken slices (17g)

Tea 1: Small steak by itself (got the timings wrong and running late for leaving the house…)

Tea 2: Homemade spiced chips with eatlean cheese & spring onions (43g carb)

Snack: Latte decaf whilst out tonight (15g ish) and a skittles ice cream (19g)

Totals: 1400 calories and 120g carb. Not as bad as I expected given the level of evening hunger.

D: 2 pork chops, a lot of cabbage roasted with Lurpak, steamed veg packet / pint water

Now down 5 pounds since Saturday so maybe paying more attention is working :D

Breakfast: Porridge & a white coffee (36g)

Lunch: Tesco slim shake and a coffee (23g) - busy day again and wanted to get some fresh air in my quick lunch break. I find these a quick option that's more filling than toast or similar that i'd do otherwise

Dinner: lean meatballs with red onions, cherry tomatoes and mixed peppers in a tomato sauce, with pasta and topped with eatlean cheese (76g)

Snacks: Pepperami chicken bites (2g), skittles ice cream (19g)

Totals: 1300 calories, 156g carbs

I shan’t actually post what I ate yesterday
it was definitely the kind of stuff I shouldn’t eat
and it wasn’t the first time last week either

Breakfast was ok with a single slice of wholemeal toast buttered & peanut butter & half an apple
but lunchtime I went to McD’s then it all went downhill from there !

think I need to give myself a good talking to :eek:

Sounds like we had similar days, I knew I was having Indian meal for tea so thought sod it when I was out at lunch. Not the approach I try to have but sometimes you need a day off!

I don't know what your blood glucose levels are but your meals except for lunch are very carb heavy with muesli, toast, then a banana and beans on toast also high carb.
