What do you do for breakfasts though? I can sort all other meals but struggle for breakfast ideas...

Smoothies - banana, apple, cucumber (peeled), or a handful of frozen cherries or somesuch and a slug of almond milk.

I don't do breakfast. Studies have shown you really don't need to eat then, unless your blood sugar needs it. I obviously don't, as I exercise without breakfast four days a week. (I'm starving by lunchtime obvs)

I would keel over if I didn't have something.

I have to eat breakfast. I would fall over at some point during the morning if I didn't.

I do smoothies or have fruit some mornings - but OH isn't keen.

I just don't need it. I've never really been bothered by eating that early, I sometimes have porridge, but only on exercise days and I've stopped it recently so I get the benefit of less calories.

I used to have large breakfasts, I'm talking about six weetabix, and would still be starving by eleven

Get the recipe for Brilliant Stir Fry from Poods
I'd eat it every night

Splutter!
The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured, and it's very loud, and it's fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, "Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, "Hey, don't worry; don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride."

I know that it has double cream or creme fraise (sp?) in it, and harissa and green pesto.
She gives it a good cook too. I put pasatta in mine too, which works.
Mostly we just eat full fat food, with loads of veg (especially greens) instead of carbs.
It really works.
It's difficult not to get all evangelical about it

I've been overloading on stir fries, but I really like them, so it's not a problem. I'm just having soup for lunch or dippy eggs with just one slice of bread which is all the carbs I'll have in the day.

I make rice and veg for my lunches.
I use one mug of rice for the week.
It's the only carb that I have now

Sunday evening's meal was a big Globe Artichoke with my own dressing.
British strawberries.

Monday's meal might be a 'warm' salad or the 2nd big Globe Artichoke with my
own dressing but no more strawberries until I shop in the week.

But usually when I am preparing and cooking a meal even breakfast, I have my
radio on.
My 2 very loved cats are Smudge, an 10 year old female, her feline 'friend' is Tommy, a 13 year old male.
They are both black and white.



I will always remember Marmalade and Mischief
also their funny ways.

My downfall is Eton Mess. I have one at least once every day. Meringue, raspberries or strawberries and cream. Mmmmmm...

I've often wondered what 'carbs' were and, having Googled it, I find it is the following foods.

Dairy. Milk, yogurt, and ice cream. I have milk and yoghurt with my cereal every morning (see grains)

Fruit. Whole fruit and fruit juice. I eat several bananas each week, pears and grapes too.

Grains. Bread, rice, crackers, and cereal. I eat cereal every day (with fresh fruit) and like rice crackers with butter


Legumes. Beans and other plant-based proteins. I love runner beans and often eat baked beans

Starchy Vegetables. Potatoes and corn. Most of my meals contain potatoes

Sugary Sweets. Limit these! I eat Eton Mess every day. Also jam and creme scones occasionally.


This is most probably why I don't lose any weight despite going to the gym twice a week, cycling, playing tennis twice a week and doing a 'Health Walk' twice a week. I also go kayaking!

Exercise won't really help you lose weight (though your's may Gadget).
You can't outrun a bad diet.
