Weight Gainers - What Did YOU Eat Today? - June 5th until June 20th


Quote  |  Reply

RULES:

  • Do not post here if you are not reaching 2500+ calories. We strongly recommend 3000+ to gain.
  • REMEMBER TO EITHER POST THE CALORIE TALLIES OR THE PORTION SIZES!
  • Also remember I do not support you using alcohol as a calorie substitute. So if you reach 2500+ with alcohol in your diet, eat a little more to make up for it.
  • If you are struggling to reach the necessary amount (and everyone has at some point) then please post a separate thread w/ questions.
  • Do not post links to your personal blog.

--------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------

This thread is for those of you looking to actively gain weight for whatever reason.

Requirements- If you are a male you need to eat at least 3000 calories, females must eat 2500-this is so that your body can begin to now only gain weight, but also for your internal organs to begin to recover, this takes fuel/calories.

It is NOT suggested that you excercise while underweight.  Excercsie is often an addicition seen with those with eating disorders. Try to stop cold turkey, IF you excercise, 2500/3000 is NOT enough.  You are only harming yourself+prolonging the illness by excercising.

If you are struggling to reach the necessary amount, and we all did, then please post a seperate thread w/ questions.  It is harmful for ppl to see posts that are under the food reuirement amount.  There are suggestions on this forum ontop regarding higher calorie+denser foods that should be incorporated to aid in reaching calorie goals.

Whoahh... they charged you twice for two flavours? That's so unfair! Gaining weight is expensive as it is. Do you not get free prescriptions because you're a student? I do.

Elefantia - try getting them in aus - a months script is £75! Where did you order yours them from? I used to get mine from boots & ask them to order a selection, and they were really good about it ( iused to get straw/banana/choc/toffee - about 6 of each)

My brother just got back from the US and got me a whole stash of lara bars! Im so excited about trying new flavours!

Yeah, I'll admit I'm kind of going overboard on sugary junk food today..but this is probably the only time in my life where "diet food" = high cal yummy treats. Live a little! haha At least my main meals are healthy :P

Edit: I felt a little low on energy during my workout. I still powered through it but, I don't know, something was missing. So, I took the liberty to add a Gorton's Flame Grilled Salmon Filet to my chili-cheese bowl lunch. Mmmm, pescado. Today's total is now 2,600 cals. :)

 

carrotface: I did apply to get free prescriptions as I'm a student, but becasue I am over 18 and earn more than a certain amount (only becasue of my uni loans!!!! I dont know how any student can get it if it's based on that!), then i dont qualify.  I do qualify though for free eye tests and a free wig....?!

georgie: I just order mine though the doctor and pick them up from my local chemist.  The women serving me didnt realise either and she got all flustered and apologetic, so i just paid to stop her from worrying.

OMG ILL TAKE YOUR FREE WIG!!!!! lol jk

Ok, I haven't posted in a while because I was really struggling and slipped into a mini relapse. But I'm determined to stay out of IP, and if I don't get my weight up my dr wants me to go back.

My nutritionist hasn't been very helpful at all, she was basically letting me get away with eating 600calories, and not enforcing me to eat more and helping me come up with a plan to do it.

But I've decided on my own what I need to do, which in a way I think is better because I'm more likely to do something if I come up with it on my own. Whereas when someone tells me to do something, I automatically want to do the opposite.

Anyways, I'm just going to follow the meal plan they gave me while I was IP. It went by exchanges, so the calories varied. I'm trying to not count calories so much (although I still do a little ), but I can't imagine this being under 2500. 

Anyways, here's yesterday....

Breakfast: 1.5 cups toasted oatbran cereal with a cup of milk and a banana.

Snack: Nutrigrain Bar, coffee (the flavored kind that's actually kind of like hot chocolate), about 1/3 cup of dried papaya.

Lunch: A 10oz "All-pro Sandwich". Basically it was who slices of sprouted seed bread with lettuce, tomato, sweet peppers, vegan mayonaisse, and a huge Falafel patty. Omg it was sooo good. I'd never had falafel before, but omgoodness it was amazing!!! Totally something I'd get again.

Dinner: A shake made with milk, chocolate peanut butter protein powder, and a banana. 2 Slices of arnold oat nut bread with butter and cinnamon sugar. Raw carrots.

Dessert: A mcdonalds oreo mcflurry!!! I can't believe I did that! But I ate the whole thing, and it was so worth it!

 

 

misslonelybones: that doesnt sound like going overboard on sugary junk food at all, its a lot less than some people, but never the less im glad youre enjoying the weight gain process.

today:

breakfast: butter croissant: 330

(okay this was all i ate before 3pm so i had quite a mission on my hands this afternoon

lunch: salmon bagel (390) strawberry and banana smoothie (145) abba zabba (250)

(and this was the biggest and best dinner ever, i reccomend it to everyone)

dinner: entire margherita pizza with a whole tin of tuna (mixed with a tablespoon of mayo) on top and half a tin in a massive salad, with dressing (900!!)

cookies and cream poptart (200) and tea (20)

chopped apple and pear drenched in about half a tub of toffee icecream (well we couldnt just have plain fruit now could we?) (350)

i think this is quite a good effort considering the last 1500 calories were consumed in about 3 hours =)

Breakfast: 1 serving of oatmeal w/ 1 tablespoon of PB in it, about 5 servings of honey bunches of oats w/ milk, orange

Snack: Apple, PB spread on it

Snack: Bag of chips

Lunch: Chicken sandwich, chips, cliff bar, gatorade, salad w/ honey mustard

Snack: mini bag of popcorn, 2 kudos bars

Dinner: Hamburger w/ katsup, soda, watermellon (OMG!!!!!! I know I should be happy about this but I'm mortified again. Hotwings and a burger in a row in two days!!! :( also soda. This is really tough)

Snack: 2 servings of oatmeal, cliff bar, 2 mini bags of popcorn (couldnt have a big bag, all we have is mini ones)

 Don't try and tell yourself how you should feel about it, just try and relax and tell yourself you are gaining weight so anything goes!  Seriously lots of my friends have burgers/pizza/hotwings etc. like nearly every day and they are pretty healthy.  A burger after all has protein and carbs in fact, if a burger was all you had, you really should have had something with it other than fruit if you're trying to gain.  don't stress!

misslonelybones well done!  But sugary junk?  I hope you are not really serious about that, what you had was really quite healthy, even the 'treats' were low sugar etc!  Remember to challenge yourself if you're trying to beat an ED.

Today:

B: 3/4 cup of oats with vanilla protein powder, 3 egg omlette with mozzerella and a nectarine (800)

S: Vanilla whey milk (250)

L: Chicken and sweetcorn sandwich, an apple and PB (550)

S: 2 weetabix with raisins, peanut butter and vanilla whey milk (500)

S: 3 chocolate fingers (100)

D: Tuna steak with guac, spinach and basmati rice (600)

S: Hot cocoa, peanut butter on toast (350)

 

uhrrr...ok well i went over what I thought it was with calories but what the hell  ;)

Ya i know but im still just BARELY trying to gain, cause im almost there. Also this is just what im planning, I will probably have something like ice cream with it.

planb2276: yeah the party was kind of awkward at first, but honestly, I look so much better then I used to, I just kind of ripped all my clothes off (....I was wearing a swimsuit lol). I had so much fun though. I went swimming and I ate lol.

Todays eats:

Breakfast: "Almond Butter and Banana Waffle French Toast": 2 waffles cooked in the toaster, with 1 T. almond butter on each, slices of banana on each, stuck together with a T. raw almond butter, then dipped in egg and silk mixed together and fried in 3 T. canola oil. SO GOOD!!!

2 1/2 hours of horseback riding

Snack: Special K Protein Meal Replacement bar and a nectarine

Lunch: "Thai Chicken Sandwich" 2 slices whole grain bread with peanut mayo (2 T. mayo mixed with 1 T. smooth PB), chicken breast cooked in cajun spices, lettuce, and tomato. an Energy Vitamin Water

Snack: 2 slices freshly baked banana bread (made with the works! butter, eggs, and more banana then posssible, like 6 instead of 3 hehe)

Dinner @ Thai Restaurant: Eggplant Kra Prow with about 1.5 cups WHITE RICE (still a major fear food)

Dessert: Levain dark chocolate chocolate chip cookie

Ok so my dessert is this like rediculously bad for you but totally good cookie. Like its huge and I am sure its like 1000 cals no joke, though I am not supposed to be counting lol. lets just say it is a dieters night mare. And I can eat it! HAHA Here is the link if you want to see its amazingness. It is legit the size of your hand if not bigger.

cutiedida: Glad you specified that you had A swimsuit under it. I wouldve NEVER guessed :) haha. And its good to be able to do stuff like that again. I went to another swim party today, and even though I was EXTREMELY self conscious and kept looking down at myself, I still went, rather than making some excuse not to

S sachet UT oats w C milk, TB raisins, C milk & TB honey + hot choc

Dont feel like this was the best day for me...need to start changing things up a bit i think, but am still very much in the routine i was set in IP

I actually think I'm able to post here today :) Currently my parents have taken total control of my food but they are the ones who are getting me over my fear limit that my ED sets. Anyway here's what I had today:

Breakfast: About 1 serving mini shredded wheat and 1 serving honey cheerios + 2% milk that I didn't drink. 150g plain ff yogurt. 1 banana. 1 slice of toast with lots of butter. 1oz ham.

Snack: Pack of skittles, 2 scoops protein powder with water (2 scoops = 250kcal)

Lunch: 2 slices WW bread, lots of butter on both slices, 1 Tbsp cream cheese, 2oz turkey, 1 granny smith apple

Snack: 1 slice WW toast 1/2 almond butter, 1/2 Peanut Butter, 1 Big banana, 2 scoops vanilla protein powder with water (250kcal again)

Dinner: Giant baked potato + over a cup of chili con carne

Snack: Yoghurt Drizzle Energy Muffin (270kcal)

 

Does this look like enough to you? Btw my exercise is absolutely none. Like I'm not even allowed walk from the car across the car park, I have to be dropped at the door before M/D parks. I don't have a goal weight for this week but I just need a gain. Also, while I'm posting, I need my snacks to be as close to 300kcal as possible for my plan, any ideas?

Killian: it's hard for me to judge if that's enough for you as you're a guy and i only know what i need to eat as a girl, but maybe you could add some more to your lunch and possibly have a dessert with your dinner?  As far as your snacks go, try putting nut butter on EVERYTHING to up the calories - cereal bars spread with it are actually very yummy and could easily be 300 calories.  Or nuts and raisins mixed with yogurt are good too.  Keep it up :) good luck with gaining this week.

breakfast: tropical fruit granola with natural yogurt and chopped peach (420)

lunch: sandwich with 2 slices seeded bread, smoked salmon, cream cheese and lettuce and some carrots (330), melon (40), dark chocolate almond and strawberry bonbon (60), 2 digestive biscuits with almond butter (200)

snack: apple (80), tortilla chips (200)

tea: my sisters and i made a three course meal for my parents anniversary - one course each, but i ended up being the organiser of most of it!

small chicken caesar salad (170)

bouillabasse (250) with 2 slices ciabatta (180)

tiramisu (600)

piece of fruit and nut chocolate (70)

total: 2600

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
