Re: what we ate today..
 
I think these kinds of posts are a bit useless because everyones metabolism and stuff is different and why does anyone care to read what others eat? To compare? :confused:

Sheesh. This will probably turn into a comparing or bragging (look how little and how healthy "I" eat) type of thread. :(

Can't we be less obsessed with food all the time? :rolleyes:

Re: what we ate today..
 
I understand you point sugar babygirl, but i disagree a little. I don't think people will use this to necessarily brag or anything..most people here are secure with what they eat and the amount, so seeing what someone else eats shouldnt bother them (if it does, speak up!).

I think this tpe of post may be helpful to some who either eat too much, eat too little, or just don't eat helathy in general. For example, when missmanda05 posted, everyone can clearly see that she needs to eat more, period. This may help her to achieve and maintain a healthier weight, and may help her to see that food isn't the enemy! It is also a way to share recipes or food ideas for others to try.

No one is making you post here, so don't feel obligated just because it's there! Usually these posts dissapate in a couple days to a week or two, so it likely won't be around LONG. :)

VERY well said girlygirl. Please explain to me Sugarbaby how this thread is related to bragging and competing. :confused: This IS the diet and nutrition board and Sammy's post was valid and personally, I like threads like this cause sometimes I generate and apply some of the ideas from other's eating habits. :) It's YOUR choice about how you eat and YOUR choice weather or not you want to participate according to the subject. Please don't take this harshly but I hate when people get offended by something in which may affect how others may want to post. ANd you said "WE" are obsessed with food, well everyone has different intentions and goals and it doesn't necessarily mean that we are going to copy what everyone eats, but many people enjoy reading about how others eat maybe for new ideas, or just plain old entertainment and curiosity. It's not about "bragging" or "comparing"(maybe to some, but prolly a VERY few, and that never even crossed MY mind.) I know we all have different metabolisms and we should know ourselves what types of food that suit us, so like I said it YOUR choice. I'm sorry but I HAD to reply to this post because I think that your impression to the meaning of this post is wrong. And your opinion is valid(because it's YOUR opinion) along with everyone's opinon so don't get me wrong, but I personally couldn't help to state mine. And, I know that we can all state our own opinions because that's only one aspect of what these threads are all about! :)

BTW, I'll post what I ate later. :D

I like reading these posts. It's interesting to know what others eat and it helps me to know whether or not I'm doing ok with my eating. I think I am. I get around 2000 cals a day now. More than what I used to (I'm a recovering anorexic). I've gained 8 pounds in the last 2 months and I weigh 100 now which is ok for my height, I'm 5 feet tall. I try to eat pretty healthy and I get plenty of exercise. I do pilates and yoga and I also walk everyday as long as the weather permits. I still have a ways to go before I can say I'm completely recovered though. I still freak out at times when I think I've eaten too much and I'm still consciously aware of the calories I consume, which I shouldn't be. But I'm making progress :)

Re: what we ate today..
 
This kind of thread can be helpful as long as we keep in mind that we are all different. What one person eats can't be used as a cookie cutter for others to follow. Our exercise habits, genetics, emotions, metabolism, etc. play a HUGE role when you talk about diet and nutrition. And Girlygirl, people won't admit it like you did, but there's definitely some competition on a certain level. We all judge each other; that's our human nature. Good call on that one.

If I were to list what I eat on a regular basis, you would all picture a whale of a person and make a point to tell me that I need to cut my calories and not eat so much. What you wouldn't know though is that I also run 18-20 miles a day. Get my point?

Keep in mind too that all of our goals are different. When people see the word "diet" they imm*****ely think "weight loss". I commend this site for having made the distinction.

I personally think it would help if we included more information instead of just what we eat... that's my two cents!

Everybody take care!

This is what I ate yesterday! It was a pretty good day!

500 ml water with liquid chlorophyll
1/2 cup Mini-Wheats
1/2 cup 1% Milk
1 pear

Lunch
Peanut butter sandwich on 7 Grain bread
3/4 cup Strawberry Activia yogurt
1/2 cup Unsweetened applesauce

Supper
1 cup Light Cranberry Juice
2 slices homemade pizza (thin wholewheat crust, ham, chopped tomatoes, cubana and orange peppers, and provolone cheese)

As you can tell I LOVE Activia Yogurt. It is higher in fat (3% M.F), but it has guaranteed 1 billion bacteria per serving!
