base salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, capsicum and onion, plus a few different things to fill it out. at the moment i'm topping the salad with sweet potato, half a tin of salmon and some vinegar which is working pretty well...
My lunch is 3 pieces of fruit.
Usually 1 or 2 bananas and 1 or 2 packham pears. Occasionally an apple as they are twice the price of the other two. I also have about 600ml of tap water with this. Does the job for me. (Truck driver / furniture pickup and delivery).
Simple, no prep and tasty.
[My breakfast is a small bowl of weeties and full cream milk. My dinner is steamed Veg (at least 4 types) with about 200g lean meat / fish.]
Jeeeze.. that is some incredibly low calories! According to MFP 3 serves of weeties, 1 cup milk, 2 large bananas, 1 packham pear, serve of steamed veges and 500g of premium beef mince is only *just* over 1,000cal ... Out of interest, why so low?
Because I am Fat My Blood pressure and cholesterol is on the high side too
I am 46, 175cm, 87kg trying to get down to 80kg. I’d really like to get to 77kg, what I was at 18 when I joined the RAAF, but i think 80 will be a struggle.
I was 107kg when I moved to Townsville from Tasmania 5 years ago, where we had a hobby farm and we basically just ate way too much (because we could, killed all our own Beef, Lamb and poultry).
If I get to 80kg, I will buy myself a new bike
Did 73km (AT) 28.5km/hr today
Hmmmm...presume you are aiming for 1200 Cals/day (std women's wt loss intake)
So 300 for lunch and 100 for an arvo snack?
start with 1/2-1 litre water
Option 1 - a wholemeal bread sandwich, wrap, or pita bread:
two slices bread or bread roll 150-200Cals, or 1 wrap 200 Cals , or 1 large pita bread 200 Cals (check packets for appropriate size)
- 40-50g of any low fat meat 50-60 Cals, or 15g of most hard cheeses
- 2 cups salad with any mix of vege 50 Cals
- optional mayo or dressing up to 50 Cals, or a small non chocolate biscuit or piece of fruit cake.
Option 2 - leftovers from dinner
50-100g any lean meat 60-120 Cals
1/2 cup rice 100 Cals
3 cups vege 75 Cals
small biscuit or fruit cake and cuppa to make up 300 Cals
Afternoon snack : a cup of water or tea/coffee, 1 piece of medium fruit (small banana ok) and up to 10 nuts.
After a week doing this, unhealthy cravings and mid arvo slump should ease considerably.
something like a zucchini or other vege slice. Veges and eggs just served differently. I tend to make this with quinoa flakes instead of flour, or chickpea flour can work. you can eat it warm or cold - up to you. once you get a basic recipe, you can change it up a bit. I tend to stick with one average zucchini and 2 carrots grated. Then add a some of the following: cannelini beans, chicken or turkey mince (I precook), tinned or smoked salmon, grated beetroot, sliced mushrooms, sliced tomato, feta chunks...lots of options!!
I have a large lasagne dish which I use - takes 6 eggs with my recipe and I get 6 meals out of the dish and find it freezes very well. I often serve with a side salad or left over veges.
It looks like you have heaps of options for lunches but you don't tend to mix it up at all. You should look into some frozen options so you don't overdo it on one thing.
