I just saw the post on people’s relationships to food and it got me thinking about different metabolisms. I just want to see what everyone eats from breakfast to dinner, and then see what they feel they are at physically. You don’t have to join in if you don’t want to.
Me: Normal up top (Size 8) and plus size below (14)
Breakfast: Nutrigrain Bar
Snack: Diced Pears
Lunch: Smart Ones meal with diet Pepsi and diced pears
Dinner: Two meat/cheese tacos and diet Pepsi
That’s it. Yep. Scale doesn’t budge, but I don’t exercise either. Anyone else?

Breakfast: bowl of cereal, piece of fruit
10:00ish: cup of tea & biscuits
lunch: either a big sandwich or last night’s dinner in a tupperware, piece of fruit, dessert (usually piece of cake)
15:00ish: coffee/tea and chocolates
dinner: cooked dinner (unless I’m lazy – then it’s bread and cheese) which is usually a generous portion of carbs and protein and some vegetables. I tend to eat a lot of meat because I often have a big protein hunger!
I’m not particularly active.
I’m sort of between size 8/10 UK which I think translates to 6 or 8 US.

Today I had:
Breakfast – Whole Wheat English Muffin w/ very little peanut butter, Greek Yogurt.
Lunch – Tarragon Chicken with Cranberry Sauce & Goat Cheese, Broccolini
Snack – Kettle corn
Dinner will be a buffalo chicken quesadilla (made at home).
That will get me to around 1300 calories…
I am between size 4-6.

Wow, this is starting to confirm what I thought… some people are really skinny and eat very little, and some eat a ton and are the same skinny. I believe this is why you can look at a plus size person and never know if they watch what they eat or not.. some get there by eating too much and some are there because their body just won’t go lower!

I’m a size 4 and a typical day would be:
Workout in the morning alternating cardio and strength training for 60-90 minutes.
Breakfast: 1 cup Cereal (Special K, Cheerios, Rice Chex, etc) with 1/2 cup fat-free milk. ~250 calories
Snack: Yogurt or cheese stick and raisins ~150 calories
Lunch: Soup, salad, or leftovers from the night before ~250 calories
Snack: 25 almonds, mixed fruit bowl, or Fiber One bar ~150 calories
Dinner: Protein, vegetable, starch ~350-450 calories
Evening I take my dog out for a mile and a half walk/jog.
I try to consume between 1200-1500 calories a day, really depends on the workout I did that day.
I’ll sometimes have a snack at night to curb my sweet tooth like a small piece of chocolate or chocolate milk.

Breakfast- container of raspberries
Lunch- Mcdonalds Quarter Pounder meal with diet coke
Dinner- Beef and broccoli in soy sauce
Snacks during the day- 3 pixie sticks, 2 packages of pop rocks, a large tootise roll, and a handful of chips
So yeah.. not exactly a healthy day at all. Today will be though! I should also add that I don’t work out. Not at all, not ever. I’m way too lazy for that.

I’m a 0, sometimes a 1. For breakfast I usually just drink 2 cups of coffee. (I hate breakfast and eating first thing in the morning.) Lunch MIGHT be a ham sandwich or peanut butter and honey if I’m hungry. In the afternoon I sometimes snack on Pringles and cheddar cheese, and then eat a big dinner, which is really my only full meal most days. Tonight I am making grilled chicken with fettuccini and alfredo sauce and garlic bread. I’m just one of those that gets busy during the day and forgets to eat or doesn’t make the time and then just forgets I’m hungry. On the weekends, I usually eat more too though, since we go out to eat.

Today I had:
Breakfast – A Zone nutrition bar. a cup of coffee.
Lunch – a turkey sandwhich on a wheat bagel thin and an orange
Snack – Probably will have a handful of mini rice rice cakes
Dinner will be grilled chicken, green beans, and oven roasted new potatoes
I am a size 0.
I weigh the same size no matter what I eat or how much i eat. I’ve been known to eat a whole pizza by myself, but don’t gain a pound. I have some crazy metabolism or something. The downside? No boobs. . . AT ALL

I’ve always between a size 2 and 4. I probably consume about 2500 cal/day and can maintain that size. I’m still lucky with my metabolism at 35 and I can eat burgers, pasta, pizza, cheesecake anything I want all day.
I recently had to go on a permanent medical diet due to this condition : http://ic-network.com/handbook/diet.html . I had to give up alcohol, chocolate, Chinese food, Mexican food, tomato sauces, condiments and so many other things I love. I immediately lost about 8lbs because gorging is not as fun anymore.

I’m a size 22 but when people guess they usually think I’m a size 16-18.
I have a digestive disorder that makes eating hard sometimes, so I rarely eat breakfast. Lunch usually consists of a cold sandwich or low sodium soup. Dinner is almost always baked chicken and veggies, or some kind of turkey meat meal (it’s got less fat than beef!). I rarely drink soda, it’s usually water or tea for me. I don’t eat or drink anything with high fructose corn syrup in it. I do tend to eat quite a bit of chocolate, but usually the diabetic kind since most candies are made with HFCS, too.
