I thought I'd show what a typical day's food looked like I always have porridge and fruit for breakfast. Today it was grapes, as I'd run out of raspberries and blueberries! (220 calories). Lunch was a salad with reduced fat red pepper hummus, and rice cakes for dipping. (290 calories) Dinner was smoked haddock in a cheese and parsley sauce, with jacket spud, peas and broccoli, (500 calories). I try to eat fish at least twice a week, and have 2 or 3 meat free meals. I have a Benecol Light with my main meal as I'm trying to lower my cholesterol, and I also try to drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water (which I flavour with slices of lemon, lime or orange) every day. With a few cups of tea, and either a yogurt or a piece of fruit for dessert. my daily total is about 1200 calories (recommended amount from myfitnesspal). I'm on week 11 of the 12 week NHS plan.
