Waaaaaay under calories

So what do you guys eat to make up your calories on days when you just cannot seem to get them into you???

Maybe its cos I'm loaded with the cold but today I just haven't felt hungry, and anything I have eaten, I have only eaten about half. I've now eaten 2 clementines, an apple and a yoghurt not because I wanted them, but cos I don't want to finish the day having eaten so little!

Oooh, I went for a little run this morning (run being used in the loosest possible way!), just twice round the rugby pitches but its a start and my neck feels great. First PT session tomorrow!

Anyway, here's what i have eaten today - and please excuse the terribly awful brekkie, but I stayed in my sisters house and the only cereal she had was my nieces Coco Pops!

B - Coco Pops and skimmed milk
L - Smoothie with banana, strawberries, raspberries, orange juice, 1 scoop whey protein
D - Chicken with satay sauce and egg noodles
S - 2 clementines, Granny Smith apple, Activia raspberry fruit layer yoghurt

Drinks - 3 mugs black coffee, c 4 pints of water

Exercise - 10 mins running, 10 mins cross-trainer

I really need to work on cutting my carbs - I just really don't know how!


  1. Your carbs aren't drastically high but you could do with increasing your healthy fats - 26g is very low.

    On days when I can't eat all my cals, I eat some raw nuts, a tbsp of nut butter on an apple, add in a protein shake with a snack.

  2. Thanks chick, I'll try that x
