    What about 1 cup of tea a day with 3 sugars? Ive tried 2 sugars, 3 canderel etc and i really dont like it any other way.

    Im working on the fruit and veg, i have a hard time trying new things (see post in the fat club) but im trying to sort it

    Erm Idont know what Hasslet is? Im getting some sort of sausage meat?? Can you opt for a low fat meat like a chicken sandwich, or turkey bacon. Also what sort of bread do you eat? If its plain white, its empty refined carbs, you may as well just eat a few more spoons of sugar for all the goodness you get from it. If you dont like brown or wholemeal bread at least try to opt for best of both.

    All in all your dieat looks to be lacking in vitamins and minerals, high in sugar and saturated fats.

    If you dont like having fruit or veg, can you at least opt for fruit juices instead of squash, as squash again has no nutritional value and is just sugar. But make sure you opt for fresh juice not concentrate, or this is the same as squash.

    The haslet is pork with pepper and herbs in, it was eaten in whole grain brown bread (will mention what bread i used in future). I will add chicken and turkey to my shopping list from friday for sandwich fillings. Is it okay to have a sandwich for breakfast if i dont fancy anything else?


    The squash i have has no added sugar, is still just as bad? I really dont like water by itself, the only reason i have water at work is because theres nothing else.

    Will get fruit juices added to my shopping list too.

    Thanks cat :D

    If your eating wholegrain bread you could eat it for breakfast as a sanwich as this isnt really a lot differnt from cerial. I tend to eat bread as Im not a huge cerial fan, and have a glass of milk with it too. Its important to make sure your getting calcium in your diet as women are prone to osteoperosis, so milk or yogurts are a good source, cheese is good but high in fat so best to aviod if your dieting. If your eating bread for breakfast make sure you only have wheat products twice a day in total, i.e. dont have bread for breakfast, lunch and then have pasta for dinner. Guten in wheat flour does cause bloating and is one the hardest grains for the body to breakdown and digest.

    Nothing wrong with squash esp if sugar free (but a lot then just stick sweetners in which is much the same) just thought if you were struggling on the fruit and veg front a couple of glasses of differnt fruit juices a day would help with your five a day.

    How much cheese would be a reasonable amount to have? I buy a 250g block per 2 weeks and it gets used up during that time.

    Im not really wanting to loose weight, if i do then that would be great. I just wanted to improve my diet really

    Out of interest does it say what percentage is breast meat and what percentage is skin? Formed chicken contains a disturbng amount of chicken skin normally, which is fattening, hence why proper chicken is a lot lower in fat.

    So chick sticks no good then? :? i really liked them too :(

    We went shopping yesterday and i had a look at fruit juices. I found it very hard to find something that wasnt from concentrate that wasnt stupidly priced.
    I have bought 4 cartons, all say from concentrate but what can i do if i cant find any that arent.
