I'm now in my mid forties a couple of inches under 6' and certainly overweight at just over 15 stone / 97-100 KG.
My problem is that I'm a very fussy eater and for the last 10 day wathing the calories and lost 2-3KG. It is getting hard as I'm sure I can get more food for the calories than what I'm getting.
Now when I say fussy I really do mean fussy. No fruit or veg ofr starters and not really into foreign food. I wish I wasn't that way but it is the way I am.
What do I eat? I bet a few will ask that question. I do like bread, potatoes and the main meats, poultry and some fish plus quite a few other things.
Now I've cut back my typical day is get up at 6, cup of tea (don't like coffeee) go to work, usually there by 8 if not before. Within an hour I have to eat something so it's 1 round of a ham sandwich. Lunch is anothe r2 rounds and a packet of crisps. I've cut out the sweet which used to be 4 fingers of kitkat or similar and also cust back on 1 sandwich. Evening meal typically a few days a week could be oven chips up to about 400 calories and something with it. Could be battered cod fillet, chargrill chick or tonight 100g of sliced chicken and tonight desert a slice of choc swiss roll. Supper with my cup of tea 2 small cookies for around 120 cal.
I'm so looking for alternatives that gives me more food for the calories as I'm always hungry. I've read that eggs can be good, scrambled so may look into this to top up a meal. May even consider a breakfast at home and cut out the days eat. My current daytime eat is sitting at just under 600 cal before any drinks.
So I know it's a hard ask but does anyone have any ideas of plain simple food that could be tasty. I've cut of all the sauces but do like my ground pepper all over the food.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
