    Hi

    I thought it would be good to have a place where we can post our HEALTHY meal plans and receive support and reassurance.

    I reckon a rule of MINIMUM 1500 CALORIES should be abided by to avoid being triggering to other readers/posters.

    Shall I start, seeing as I had an increase today?

    B - 2 weetabix, 100ml ss milk
    S - 200ml ss milk
    L - Portion cod and smoked mackerel fish pie, mixed cauli/carrots/green beans
    Dr - Tea with milk
    T - Flora sandwich with mayo and ham and mustard and salad (in that order *faints* - I cried like a baby BUT I forced it down )
    Dr - Tea with milk
    S - 200ml ss milk

    Who's with me?

    Nice one custard! But yuck, Cabbage. Still traumatised by school dinners. They seem to boil the living daylights out of everything, or atleast the dinnerladies at my school did.

    Thankyou, this thread is a life saver. Im really struggling with my eating disorder.

    Brekkie -1 portion branflakes with skimmed milk. I heat it in the winter to keep me warm! and an apple

    Lunch - tuna salad wrap. and a piece of fruit.

    Dinner - Tofu and cous cous with veggies. Stewed fruit for pudding

    Snack - Mini rivita, or nutrigrain, or dried fruit.

    It's not very inspiring. I used to cook alot and would experiment, testing it on my family! But I find it hard to follow a recipe if I dont know the calorific content. It's something I need to get over though. Alot of my meals are very basic and dull.
    I really want to find a few meals and snacks which are safe but slightly more interesting?!

    morrisman - feeling good today, after a weight this morning that was less than expected (still up but reassuring that I'm not going to gain kilo after kilo after kilo)
    broken_rose - how about jacket potatoes? baked beans and tuna and cottage cheese and hummus can be good fillings . try different cereals as snacks? weetabix is good. toast is a good one, peanut butter is a good spread to have on it - protein and healthy fats (fats are v important for hair, skin, nails, good gastric motility and are quite satiating

    Today - good day!

    B - 2 weetabix, 100ml semi-skim milk, 1 x WM toast and 20g marmalade portion (they forgot the butter!)
    S - 200ml semi-skim milk

    Weetabix is a good one. I'll put that one on my shopping list for next time! My psychologist is trying to help me add healthy fats to my diet. And even though I know they are essential to my diet, I still find them quite tough! But I guess hummous is a source of healthy fat which would seem acceptable.
    I'm a bit freaked out by jackets. I pretty much lived off them in IP!!! But it would probably be worth a try again.
    Thankyou

    There's no way that I'd claim to have a serious eating disorder, but certainly a few issues... Just want to say how great it is to see some positivity about food and diet!
    I'm mostly trying to worry less about calories and focus more on portion control (getting much much more) and I find that making more homemade stuff is a good way; you can never know how much calories are in a slice of homemade bread, and if you tried to weigh it there's a chance to stop yourself. Plus, you know whats in your food, and can learn to enjoy the process. Hope this might help someone else out!

    B - Branflakes with milk and apple
    L - WM Pitta bread with 60g crab and salad.
    D - Filo pea parcels and salad. Desert - Mango sorbet
    S - Rice cakes.

    I actually followed a recipe for dinner, which was hard. I panicked half way when I saw the calorie content of one of the ingredients. But I knew the overall calories of the meal and it was manageable. It took me hours searching through Good Food magazine to actually find a meal i'd eat. But I did it. And it had lots of veg so it's not too bad is it? Arghhh!!!
