Not what I used to eat but drink.. and that was alcohol. I used to knock back 6-7 margaritas in a sitting, and then go to the bar and drink some more when I was in college. Now I have one drink, maybe 2 and I am done.

Food wise I still eat what I used to, just smaller portions.. instead of a whole plate of food out, I only eat half or a quarter of the food.

The takeaway where i live does buy one get one free pizza any night of the week and i used to have to order over 10 quid to get it to deliver so i would have 2 medium cheese pizzas and chicken burger and chips ( in fairness i always saved on pizza for breakfast the next day) this place is my go to place.. id order at least 3 times a week. First week on the diet and ive already turned my housemate down when she suggested it! lets keep this up!

I want to know what sort of PB&J sandwiches you were eating that were 700+ calories!
Mine are under 300 (heck, even my PB, Banana, & marshmallow fluff sandwich was only around 400)


At least 2 tbsp of PB on each slice (400) + 100 each slice of bread (200) + whatever the jelly adds up to. I didn't look it up specifically for the cal content, but c'mon it's like pure sugar. Couple tbsp of that's gotta be good for at least 100 cals.

How do you get yours under 300?
i use sara lees sandwhich thins 100 calories a tbsp of pb for like 95 calories and a tbsp of sugar free blackberry jelly 25 calories

Tim Hortons Coffeee, around 4-5 per day. Still struggling with this now. Im down to 1.5. I would like to switch to milk instead of cream but they never know how to make it properly when you ask for milk, they always put too little and it tastes awful. Have tried adding my own but that doesnt taste the same either, 6 of the milk packets make up nothing when you put it in the cofffee.



I used to work at Tim Horton's...the cream machine comes in a big bag, and gets dispensed by which button you push. so a 3/3 small tastes the same as a 3/3 large. unfortunately, the milk is from a carton/jug so the employee just hast to eye it. the one i worked at always used low fat milk. maybe the coffee is just too strong for the milk to have any flavor?


Yes that could be it, maybe i will bring my own milk to work and get a black coffee from now on. The calories are insane when you add the cream. I think if i worked there i would be in heaven. Hahaha

One word - Nutella. It's so delicious but sooo bad. At least i measure it out now and don't eat it straight from the jar with a spoon!

I would choose the lowest calorie bread possible, you can find ones that are 60 or less calories per slice. You can get reduced fat peanut butter, and either get sugar free jelly or reduced sugar, etc.

Cheese fries loaded with bacon and ranch dressing, nachos with cheese dip, Krispy Kreme donuts (at least 2 or 3), double cheeseburgers from McDonald's with a large caramel frappe...I could go on and on

Cheese fries from outback steakhouse... Holy amazing taste... but you bet i felt like the grease I just ate right after.

Dominos pizza. I used to eat lots back when I was a student, but now I've realised it's really expensive and not even that good. I'd much rather eat the delicious, handmade, real Italian pizza that's actually cheaper from the little place near my boyfriend's house.

Other than that, I haven't really cut anything out, just way down. I got to the point at my heaviest, where I didn't really recognise hunger or fullness. Now, I eat when I'm hungry and I stop eating when I'm full.

Oh geez I was bad. I would get a double stack from wendys with large fries and large Dr. Pepper. I ONLY drank Dr. Pepper or sweet tea. I also loved bread. Anywhere I could get it. The Wawa sub- 10 inch double meat on white bread with american cheese, extra mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion......I was easily putting away about 5000+ calories a day. It was terrible.

UK Costco's pizza. We are due to go there on Staurday and I was looking forward to a slice of pizza, but I have just checked out the calories on the database and 620 is just too much for one slice of heaven sad

Stuffed crust pizza... from anywhere, with pretty much any topping! As long as it was a LARGE! 1000's of calories!
April 13, 2012 5:52 AM
Chicago-style pizza. So. Much. Cheese.
And beer. Lots of beer.

The bento box at any of the sushi places around here: rice, teriyaki chicken, miso, salad, salmon and avocado rolls, tempura vegetables shrimp and crab, and gyoza.
Over 1900 calories and 4000 mg of sodium. I would eat it at least once a week for lunch, and still be hungry for dinner.

Old Chicago's Meat Me Large Deep Dish Pizza.

Image not displayed

I'd down about 3 slices: 3,215 calories.

And that was after the mozzerella sticks and caprese salad.

I haven't cut anything out, I just don't eat as much. Typical meal at Burger King for me would be 2 Original Chicken sandwiches, large fries, 1 or 2 double cheeseburgers and a large coke.
Typical meal at Taco Bell would be 4 soft taco supremes, Nachos Bell Grande, and then I'd stop somewhere for a Coke and probably pick up a double cheeseburger or fries.
Jack in the Box was bad too, I would get an Ultimate Bacon Cheeseburger, large curly fries, 2 tacos and a large coke.

The one place I really haven't been to lately (because they don't have nutrition info and I'm not very good at guessing how many cups of a particular item are on my plate) is Casa Ole. I would always get the Nachos Ole (and eat most of it myself) and a Grilled Fajita Burrito.

Tony's Frozen Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza was a staple of my diet, too. I'd load it with more pepperoni, half a cup of cheese and then it eat it myself. It's supposed to serve 3.

I think back to my grandparents who ate out maybe three times a year. They ate from their garden, always had a home cooked meal for dinner. The worst thing in the house was butter! No one "exercised" - you were outside working in the yard!

Now it's just so easy to grab hamburgers, fries, pizza, donuts, etc. without a second thought and look what it's done to us - we have to have websites to help us monitor our food and exercise. Progress isn't always progress.

That being said, I can eat an entire box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese by myself.

I use to eat a ton of fast food. I would go out for lunch everyday and eat it and then I would get it to take home for dinner. My go to places were McD's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen, and Papa Johns. I still get it for take out occasionally (1 or 2 times a month), but I select better options. I only get salads at McD's with grilled chicken (about 400 cals) and if we get pizza, it's 2 slices tops, no more. Back in the day, I could easily eat 4 or more.

I've never looked at the calorie content, but at Dairy Queen, I would get a foot long chilli cheese dog, onion rings, BBQ sandwich, and large sweet tea. I'm sure it has to be pushing 2,000 cals in one meal. UGHHH!! Makes me kind of sick to think of now.

My other weakness is Olive Garden. All of those meals are high carb, plus those delicious breadsticks. And of course, I got the alfredo sauce to dip them in. My favorite dish is the chicken and shrimp carbonara. I looked it up one time and the meal itself, without salad and breadsticks and alfredo sauce, was 1500 cals!!! If I add in the other items I ate, I was consuming over 3,000 cals in one sitting. Plus, the 2 glasses of wine I would have with it. I still love my Olive Garden, but we only go once a year now for our anniversary. It helps that we don't have one nearby. The closest one is about an hour away.
