So, you know the drill. What did you young calorie counters (under 21)eat today?
Meal plans less than 1500 for females OR 1800 for males will be deleted as they violate CC guidelines and are unhealthy.
You need calories to grow, develop, and mature whether you realize it or not so PLEASE do not post low calorie meal plans. This is a space that should encourage healthy eating and give others ideas. I appreciate your respectfulness and abidance to the rules.
If someone posts a meal plan UNDER 1500 calories for sedentary females, 1800 for sedentary males, then please report it by PMing me with a reference to the post # so that it may be deleted. It makes it much easier to keep this thread healthy. Thanks!

Reason: New thread.
Avacadoqueen: A piece of banana bread and a chocolate bar do not constitute a binge. However, if it's the impulse, if you didn't consistently restrict so much, you probably wouldn't 'binge'. NOBODY here thinks you're fat- absolutely no one.
Try to eat more, then you might not have to rely on the ensures, but until you do, you need the nutrients, including the sugars.
Once again, today kind of fell in to the breakfast, snacking, dinner schedule.
B: Cinnamon raisin overnight oats with walnuts; coffee with 2% milk (396)
S: Toast, almond butter + banana (Second breakfast? Aha.)(~336)
S: Celery, carrot, cucumber and radishes with hummus (~169)

S: 2 squares dark chocolate (95)
L: banana bread oatmeal, 39 almonds
D: veg patty, whole wheat bread thin, 1 tomato slice, fat free mayo, 4 carrots, 1 cup pineapple
oh, and posting your calorie count will not make me magically disappear and stop checking... and deleting when I see that it does not meet the 1500 calorie minimum.
B: cornflakes and milk 190 S: peanuts and apple 220 L: turkey, watermelon, and cashews 275 S: PB and baby carrots and slice of motz cheese 300 S: hard boiled egg and popcorn 180 D: carrots, salad and sausage and peppers 185 S: peach, sandwhich thin and pistachios 230
1/2C chickpeas: 140
Banana bread oatmeal: 200
Veggie patty: 110
Whole wheat thin: 100
Tomato slice: 5
Fat free mayo: 11
4 carrots: 84
This came to 1491. Maybe you had some massive carrots, maybe you had more chickpeas..but either way, you're scraping the minimum for overweight short teen girls to lose weird weight**, not those recovering from EDs.
Peanutbutterxo: You're above 1500, so you're technically okay, but why not add a bit more cals? You have time to plan to add a bit of dried fruit, or maybe a glass of milk or something.
hey guys. :D i haven't posted in a few days... i've been working soo much.
B: blueberry bagel with a tiny bit of pb, 2% milk
L: lite spinach wrap with turkey/romaine/low fat muenster cheese, organic baby carrots dipped in salsa, grape fruit strip

D: baked chicken breast with a bit of bbq sauce, 1/2 cup brown rice mixed with 3/4 cup green peas
exercise: 20 min run, 20 min elliptical, weights
i am pretty proud of myself for being healthy today. (: i didn't eat very well last week.
Hi people! New here...
I'm always hungry... like, ALWAYS hungry. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat either. I can easily eat an entire pot of green beans or a pound of broccoli, an entire 2 pounds of baby carrots, and my stomach may be full, but I am by no means full. I'm really active too, and I'm sure that plays a big part in it, but I've been steadily & slowly gaining weight and I'm okay for about another 5 pounds of gain, because I'll accept up to that much as changes/development, but after that I'll be worried. Does that seem reasonable? I'm almost 19 by the way, birthday's in 19 days :D!
Heres what I ate today, if anybody has any ideas of what I can do to stop the neverending hunger... please feel free to let me know.
Pre-run 8AM: small bowl of honey-nut cheerios w/milk (just enough to put something in my stomach before running) (250)
Post run/breakfast 9:30AM: a peach, 1/4 c. salted almonds, a string cheese (350)
Noon(at a restaurant): 2ish cups of fresh delicious salsa, a seafood tostada w/guacamole, 1 c. black refried beans, a couple tortilla chips, a few bites of tres leches cake & ice cream (a single dessert shared amongst our whole table) (650)
3:00: a 72% dark chocolate square, a diced peach& 2 cups watermelon w/ 4 oz plain regular fat yogurt (300)
5:00: a ton of cucumbers (5-7 cups sliced?) (from our garden) (100?)
6:00: tofu sandwich (2 slice whole wheat bread w/ diced firm tofu, veggies and a small amount of chipotle mayo), 4 oz plain regular fat yogurt, 1 cup watermelon, a scoop of slow churned cookies n cream ice cream (1/2-3/4 cup?)
9:30: 1/2 c. oats cooked with water w/ stevia and a bit of milk (200)
10:30: low-fat string cheese stick, & an apple (150)
=2450 2600ish, but today this calorie amount is very reasonable. I ran 5.5 miles this morning, and in the evening I went for a 30-45 minute bike-ride with my friend, and played x-box kinect dance for 30-60 minutes. soo, that sounds about right.
But the thing is, I'm still hungry... and I was still hungry after lunch, after breakfast, after snack, after I ate a bajillion cucumbers, and now! hahaha... who knows, maybe my body wants to gain weight, maybe I'll get some boobs. today wasn't one of my higher calorie days though... I'll have to post on a day when I'm really really really hungry. I mean I'm only gaining a quarter of a pound a week at most. Not very much, but still, if I keep gaining at this rate I have a good 5 months before I'll be worried about my weight. btw I'm 5'3" and 115 pounds, so I'm about perfect right here...
Edit: Had another snack lol...
B: Cinnamon raisin overnight oats topped with walnuts (319); coffee with 2% milk (64) square of lindt chili chocolate (50)
S: Scone (102);
L: Mashed potato + sweet potato egg patty fried in canola oil (321) with relish (~20); salad with loads of lettuce, tomato, broccoli, cucumber and onion (~100)
S: Banana with almond butter (~200) shredded wheat biscuit (~78)
D: Sauerkraut (35), pan-fried tofu (110), olive oil + vinegar potato salad (332), sliced tomato (11) piece of rye bread (80?)
Small apple or glass of juice( 80?)
Too many veggies.. if there is such a thing.
Holy mackerel, I just realized I have 5,072mg of potassium!!! That's a first.
I edited b adding the shredded wheat biscuit, piece of bread and apple/juice since I realized that I really hadn't eaten enough.
hey guys I've been reading this threat for awhile. I've actually been waiting to get to my goal weight to post as a "reward." That will no longer be. I wish I'd stop getting the e-mails to this thread. Almost everyone is undereating except for a couple (i.e. maybe 2 people) and one of those 2 people still seems pretty low on days.
I can understand why this thread has so few people! So depressing. I remember 1-2 years ago (had a different account name) and even earlier this year people came here were either "average" teenage kids trying to maintain and enjoying food or ED sufferers who were actually trying to become healthier. If you are not really trying to become healthier and only post to convince yourself you're not eating too much, this isn't the place for you.
I'm sad for most of you & for this thread. At this point, I feel like it should be shut down. :l
Fitnfierce: I guess you won't see this if you are leaving but, its the people that make the thread... and yeah, I just posted first time yesterday and after reading it a bit further, my goodness, NOBODY HERE EATS ANYTHING!!!! Even on the days I have no exercise whatsoever I eat a lot. According to this site I usually eat between 2300-3000 calories per a day... and as far as I know I've always eaten this much... and only in the past few months has my weight gone from the 110-112 I've been for years to 115, which may simply be the fact that I'm growing out of my younger teen body to a more adult shape. Its no biggie, but here there are people who are underweight still and freaking out of possibly gaining a pound or two? I'm minoring in nutrition, so I've learned a lot about nutrition, starvation, eating disorders, metabolism, etc. and I agree, most people here are not eating nearly enough. I encourage you to post if you are eating a decent amount, to help bring some sanity to this forum!
Hi, i don't post here anymore but i just wanted to reply :)
Mollyfishstick: I think the reason you might be really hungry is because for all that exersize you are not getting that much carbohydrates. Your pre-run cereal looks good but for breakfast you could maybe add on some toast to keep you fuller for longer. And your lunch looks ok :) For your snack when you had the cucumber, although that is alot of cucumber, it is basically just water so it is not going to fill you up that much at all. You could try a granola bar if you like anything like that as well. Fruit is good for you but if you are really hungry then it is probably not a good idea to have just fruit because it doesen't really fill you up as much as the other food groups. Everything else looks ok to me :) Also good snacks you can have if you are hungry inbetween meals are: bananas, avocados, cereal, milk, granola bars, peanut butter on toast, nuts and yogurts.
I hope this helps :)
florence96: Thanks for the tips! It does look a bit low on the grains now that I look at it. I don't really expect fruits and veggies to fill me up really... I do love them though. I really love broccoli and zucchini, and my family gardens so we have tons of ripe tomatos, cucumbers, melon, peaches, plums, and squash right now, so I eat a lot of vegetables/fruit.
treid to eat more grains today, but, it still didn't seem to help much... I was really full for a full hour or two after lunch though! And the peach cobbler really filled me up as well. Nothing beats this delicious summer homemade food!!!! :D at college I never get to eat such yummy fresh things.
hmm, looking at it, it seems what fills me up are things that are high in calories... and perhaps fiber, from the beans? I think I'm going to try to eat beans way more often.
My mom has diagnosed me with 'bottomless pit syndrome'. Now she thinks I might be going through a late growth spurt... ??? I feel a little old to be growing.
Breakfast: 2 slices whole wheat toast w/ margarine spread, 1 c. low-fat plain lowfat yogurt w/ sliced plum (400)
lunch: 2 1/2 c. homemade thick black bean soup w/ a bit of homemade guacamole, some salsa, & a bit of plain greek yogurt, & an ice cream sandwich for dessert (800?)
3:00: slice of homemade cinnamon bread (150)
4:00: a bunch of peaches & 1/2ish c. cottage cheese in 1/2 a whole wheat pita bread (250)
Dinner: a grilled chicken breast, a few grilled peaches, medium grilled flatbread, and lots of grilled zucchini/squash/tomatos (all with oil/butter of somesort) (550?)
8:00- homemade fresh peach crisp (fresh peaches, w/ butter oatmeal brown sugar cinnamon topping) (400?)
11:00: 1/2 c. oats cooked w/milk, cinnamon, & stevia (250)
Exercise: 1 hour x-box kinect, and a 2 mile run
