Not dieting, but I live by the 80/20 rule. Today’s diet looks like this. I will also note, I eat gluten free due to Celiac Disease.

Breakfast- Oatmeal with PB and a banana

Snack- Carrots with hummus

Lunch- BLT with a pear

Dinner- Broccoli Cheddar soup

Snack- A couple squares of dark chocolate or maybe a chocolate pudding.

The broccoli cheddar soup is a new recipe I’m trying out tonight. We will see how it goes!

Not dieting but this is an average day for me

Breakfast 8am – wholemeal toast with dairy free spead and marmite or PB or wholegrain cereal or cheese on toast and a mug of hot cocoa. 

Snack 10.30am – japanese rice crackers or an apple a banana

Lunch 12.30pm – soup with wholemeal roll or beans on toast or pasta salad

afternoon snack 3pm – slice of toast with PB&J (only recently tried this combo – uk bee) or nuts or seeds

dinner 6pm (im usually at work now) spag bol/ casseroles/ meat and vegetables, homemade curries, stir fries. 

I try to eat a fairly balanced diet. I am lactose intollerant and my lactofree products are expensive so I dont eat too much dairy and i only consime 70%+ cocoa chocolate. 

I try to eat foods that will provide energy throughout the day without eating empty calories, snacking on nuts and seeds in between meals mainly.

Like Lean Cuisines & one big salad per day.  I was doing Jenny Craig but I just can’t justify the price when I weigh 119 lbs at 5’4″.

I know processed food is not the best thing for me, but I will NOT cook.  I can’t stand cooking & the clean up that goes with it.

I’m on a perma diet but do allow myself cheat days or cheat mornings.  On cheat days, we usually go to Soup Plantation & I pig out on salad & soft swirl.

Dh & I keep totally different hours, he eats totally different food & likes a late dinner.  So we each fend for ourselves.

Works for us.

Not dieting, but this is what my menu looks like this week, which is fairly typical:

Throughout the day: heaps of water and herbal tea

Breakfast: chia pudding with almond milk, cacao and macqui

Lunch: big salad with lots of veggies and feta or leftovers

Dinner: steamed salmon and veggies/vegan butter cauliflower/mushroom quinoa risotto/zucchini noodles with butternut squash sauce/cheese free mac and cheese (so unbelievably good!!)

Snacks: I don’t usually snack during the day, maybe some plain popcorn before dinner. This week after dinner I have choc covered almonds and icecream (bad!!). Must cut back!

I can’t bring myself to cook on Fridays or Saturdays so we eat way too much takeaway (I prepped ahead this week!). Usually pizza or mcdonalds (I know, I know…).

Just recently got into bodybuilding (not the kind where you gain a million pounds of muscle, the kind where you drop a lot of fat and gain just a bit of muscle/tone up), so I’ve been following a “bodybuilder’s diet” but lower carb, it has been working pretty well.  Google and youtube helped a lot when I was getting started.

Morning snack- Coffee with 1/3 cup coconut milk

Lunch- Big salad (spinach, red pepper, cucumber, carrots, sunflower seeds, olive oil, red wine vinegar) topped with a buffalo turkey burger

Afternoon snack- Grapefruit

Breakfast:  Bagel/cream cheese or yogurt or protein bar weekdays.  Usually a waffle or cereal weekends.  French toast or omelette sometimes too if I’m working where my brother works cause then my mom will make it for him to bring in for me.

Lunch: left over dinner, fried rice or noodle dish

Dinner: some kind of meat – usually beef or chicken thighs, I try to be better and use chicken breast.  Salmon once in a while, steamed veggie or salad and rice if I stir fried something.

Snacks: Anything  – chips, fruits, crackers… depends on what’s in the house.

All I do is generally be conscience of fatty/unhealthy foods and try not to eat too much processed stuff and not over eat.  No fast foods, or frozen meals.

Breakfast (7am): Ezekiel bread toast with Earth Balance (margarine) and peanut butter, or 1/2 bagel with Earth Balance. 

Snack (10am-ish): Peanut butter pretzels (I’m addicted), or other flavored pretzels, or nuts, or raisins, or granola bar.

Lunch (12:30pm): Leftovers from the night before, see dinner.

Snack (3pm-ish): Grapes, or dark chocolate, or whatever else I can find in my office desk.

After work snack (5pm-ish): Veggies with homemade vegan ranch, cucumber sandwiches (I’m obsessed), a steamed artichoke, or whatever else we have.

Dinner (8pm-ish): Usually a veggie-heavy dish, like stir fry, with rice. Regular dinners include: sauteed veggies with rice/quinoa/couscous, bean burritos covered in pico de gallo, veggie-based Indian foods, salads, etc.  Sometimes dinner is less healthy, like lasagna.  But 95% of the time it’s at least homemade.

I aim for 6 small meals every day.  I can’t do 3 large meals.  I just get so hungry in between!

I’m not on what I would call a “diet.”  This is my typical food consumption.  I am trying for a moderate weight loss, but mostly by keeping my food consumption consistent and adding strength training, which I’ve never done before.  I’ve been at it for a few months, and I feel and look a little better.  I’m going for more of a long-term goal though, so I don’t expect changes overnight.  I’m aiming to lose about 20 pounds in the next year or so.

I have a ton of food allergies/Celiac so we stick to a high protein diet that is heavy on the veggies. This is our consistent diet. But my husband eats twice the amount I do. 

Breakfast: Power greens (a mix of baby spinach, chard, kale), greek yogurt, fruit or more veggies, almond milk smoothie using my NutriBullet (I LOVE THIS THING). Or Cream of Buckwheat with protein powder if I need the extra calories

Snack: apple with all natural You Fresh Naturals Coco-nut butter (Usually the Cinnamon Roll flavor); or a Quest bar.

Lunch: another green smoothie with added protein powder or a salad with some sort of protein. Sometimes I’ll even have an organic gluten-free EVOL meal or an Amy’s gluten-free cheddar burrito if I’m running short on time. If I have to choose fast food–I get an In-N-Out protein style burger without spread (no fries). 

Snack: Ostrim maple turkey stick or fresh veggies with a bolthouse farms yogurt dressing. If I’m craving something sweet I do Arctic Zero low-cal gluten and dairy free ice cream with fat free ready whip. 

Dinner: Lately it’s been zoodles with ground turkey and organic tomato sauce or cauliflower faux “risotto” with ground chicken and Dave’s Butternut Squash Sauce. If it’s that time of the month, I stick with a huge portion of Yogurtland lol.

If it’s a cheat meal(usually once a week): True Foods Kitchen Bison Burger (no bun) with their Kale salad and their Blackberry Smash cocktail. Yum!
