I am trying to lose weight but I’m still putting it on despite running every day. I think it is down to a poor diet.
Can you name some healthy meals and snacks please?
Hi - sorry I’m a bit late, But if you hit me a dm (Or anyone in the same situation)
I’ll send you foods to try to get more off and some to advoid as well as tasty meals that you won’t even think are healthy. You can even have any size potion you want, it still will be healthy.
I have been a chef for 4 years now and I have created some meals for my self and family and in total I lost a large amount of weight without exercising.
I can even do more-a-less any recipe but make it healthy. Without removing the flavour

I'm a fan of naked bars and pulsin bars. Make sure you check the sugar and fat contents in whatever you eat and avoid too much greasy foods. I'd recommend trialling a pescitarian lifestyle (fish and dairy allowed but no meat) - so you can still get protein and calcium, without the overly fattening substances if meat. Hope this helps, all the best
“Red Meat” isn’t a bad thing, You can get 5% mince meat and cook it in a low cal cooking spray.
Fish is very healthy, So is white meats.
Dairy on the other hand can be a negative, Try using a low fat milk such as red top and even less butter.
You can get calcium from other things instead of dairy as well btw
- Fish will give you slight calcium
- Vegetables will give you Slight calcium
- Seeds will give calcium
Naked Bars are fulled with sugar and carbs.
Also watch out for E-Foods in the ingredient list

-Fruits and nuts (in moderation)
-Shredded iceberg lettuce (sounds weird but so good)
-Almond butter + apple or bananas
-Hummas and bell pepper or carrot sticks.
Eat plenty of fruit and veg - if you're having a meal, try and add some salad or turn it into a salad. Avoid as much processed foods as possible (although it can be difficult at times). Try and find healthy food you enjoy and ease yourself in to the diet, don't excessively force yourself into stuff you don't like as it will just increase cravings for things.
This helped me stop gaining as much weight and I'm at a stable level now.
You can eat anything you want as long as you track your calories. Your problem is just that you're burning fewer than you take in. If your goal is to lose weight, there is no difference between 1500kcal worth of mars bars and 1500kcal worth of fish, rice, nuts, whatever.
If you can't eat less food by mass, eat lower energy foods - not nuts lmao
Thanks so much for all of your help! Are Eat Natural bars really that healthy? Looked at the nutritional info and it is quite high in fat and sugar?
And can you start to consult with a doctor, a nutritionist? To be sure that you are healthy and such restrictions will not affect your health in any way.
I tried to eat healthy, then relapsed, if that’s the right word.
Today I tried again. Today I have eaten a turkey and egg salad, an apple and carrots and broccoli with potato wedges. Is this ok? I also went on a run/walk today.
[quote=sknudson;81856336]The overall goal of eating just below your daily expenditure is to delay the body triggering its starvation mode for as long as humanly possible. By eating so few calories, you're bringing the inevitable starvation point forward much earlier than you could be. In a completely ideal situation, your progress will just stall and you'll notice nothing happening on the scale. For most people though, they'll find they start gaining again as the body conserves what it can thinking its going to be starved.
Of course eating next to nothing will drop the weight pretty rapidly in the beginning, but it won't be long before you stop seeing those results. If you wanted to try very low calories, then you're in an ideal setting I suppose. I'm surprised a doctor hasn't chimed in on this in the hospital
Sorry messed up the quote
So is it better to eat more or less calories? I thought the whole idea of losing weight is to reduce calorie intake.
The doctors in this hospital don’t mind, as long as you’re eating something.
