Anyone thinking ahead to winter?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Was just thinking that while the weather is nice it's easy to eat salad and light meals, but what do you plan on eating thru the winter when everyone else in the family wants stodgy comfort food, ?

 And also how do you plan to keep your water intake high, I didn't ever drink a lot of water I would happily sink 12 cups of coffee a day tho, how am I gonna fancy a couple of litres of cold water rolleyes

    This is my concern too as I love roasts followed by a hot dessert

    I cant eat soup without lashings of bread!

    I think im gonna have to go more vege wuth quorn which seams to be bearable with lots of fresh herbs for flavour. Alot less fat than actual meat.also lean chicken breast cooked in a variety of ways.

    fish? I personally dont like our choices here so dont eat it unless im on holiday with more options and fresher.

    I have 3 stone to loose so I hope to be off tablets by December and then maintain a lower fat diet and keep up the exercise - heres hoping! Xmas is banned lol

    I drink loads of coffee even now. I won't be on them in the winter. i was last year and it was fine i even came off them for Xmas and never ate one single treat over xmas i still ate within the rules! i think once you haven't eaten crap for so long you just don't want to eat like that ever again.

    Make curries stews soups casseroles etc

    i drink that much water because i love water i don't like the nightly toilet trips though! drinking an extra 2ltrs at 9pm is not that much of a good idea!

    Hello there Shelagh :-)

    Personally I try not to think that far ahead, but having said that there are lots of comforting foods you can have, just not huge portions. I intend to make lots of soups with chunky vegetables to keep the winter out!

    Not sure how I am going to feel about drinking the same amount of water come winter, but it is going to have to be done and its a small price to pay for my health :-)

    Since I have been taking Orilstat my views on eating have changed dramatically, I am even starting to have less of a craving for mayonnaise now, which was a bad habit anyway!

    Dont worry too far ahead hun, winter will just slide into place slowly without you knowing it and you will be just fine because you have us guys in the forum.

    Ive just cooked venison casserole - was lovely albeit quite pricey

    venison from sainsburys 2.9g per 100g (100g of meat is a big portion for me, I weighed it out to see what my normal portion is)

    Onion, garlic & diced carrot

    1/3 bottle red wine

    1/2 tub of 0% creme freish

    I had it with veg and 2 small new potatoes

    I'll be cooking it again for sure
