Dinner tonight, chicken fillets in tomato sauce and sweet potato wedges.

Hi everyone, not sure why but posting what I eat seems to encourage me even more.

Today for dinner I cooked a dinner which was under 500 calories, delicious and FILLING.

It was all cooked in the oven,

Use an oven proof dish and put foil on top.

Place 3 small raw chicken fillets, chopped up mushrooms, broccoli and pasatta sauce (aldi it’s only 50 calories for 1/4 jar) for this recipe I used maybe just under 1/4. Obviously add whatever veg you like.

Add any seasoning you like, I added garlic and parsley.

Let it cook 45 minutes and serve with sweet potato wedges, I also had an egg with mine.

Looks tasty again :) Good to get going on the home cooking :)

What's your calorie allowance Ywxxx ? I'm only asking because your very lovely lunch and dinner only come to around 750 cals, which seems rather low :)

I’m not sure, but I’m eating enough until I’m full and I have yoghurts between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner. I think I’ve had about 900/1000 calories today. I have 6 stone to lose so hopefuly with eating healthy and doing exercise it will happen.

I suggest you check out your calorie range at the NHS BMI calculator. It may seem odd but you will soon hit a block if you don't eat enough, and 1000 is not likely to be enough if you need to lose 6 stone. The best plan is to start high and reduce as you lose weight and your body needs less.

You're onto a winner as you obviously like food and cooking, and that's important. There's no need to be "starving" or eating "low-fat" and "diet" foods. Stick with your fresh ingredients but think about increasing your quantities.

Good luck :)

I’m always full and eat enough I’ve just cut out foods that are very fatty. I used to eat lots of McDonald’s KFC Chinese etc. And now I’m eating healthy food and it feels great. I just eat a lot of veg now which even in large portions is low in calories.

But thank you for the advice.

Hope all goes well for you and you get involved with the forum, reading posts and joining a weigh-in (whichever day is best for you) and the Daily Diary :)

I most definitely will be, the weigh in is the issue I have as I feel the need to weigh myself too much. But I’m trying to do it once a week. Which will be next Monday 🤞for good results.

Never realised how important healthy food is until I found out im low in iron, folate and vitamin b, my energy levels were so low I decided it was time to fix it.

I look forward to my journey and being involved in this group supporting others and finding motivation from others.
