YCC--daily eats thread-WHAT DID YOU EAT TODAY?

Quote  |  Reply

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!

hehe I know it sounds wierd, but it´s just the word ;]


Good luck with gaining! I didn´t post in the weight gainers´ forum ´cause I think I don´t quite reach the 2,500 cals that´re needed :S

average_batgirl: I know what you mean. I don't know if I've ever reached the 2500-3000 calorie mark out of treatment. In treatment, I'm sure I hit that mark, but I find it difficult to get up that high by myself.  There' still time to increase to meet those requirements though! It's better to gain on a higher amount of calories, anyway; it'll repair your metabolism.


B: 1/2 cup oats w/ scoop vanilla protein powder and Chocolate Ensure Plus

L: Veggie sausage patty, a sweet potato, apple cinnamon Chobani greek yogurt

D: ~1 1/2 cup Pad thai with shrimp, 1 cup egg drop soup

S: Cranberry and oats Luna bar

Maintenance on a relatively sedentary day:

Breakfast: Toast & almond butter, sugar free 2% latte, pear (378)

Snack: Oatmeal to go cinnamon roll breakfast bar (160)

Lunch: Greek Yogurt & tomato salad (I make weird concoctions... it was tasty! Kind of like Tzatziki without the cucumber) (~105?) and a Clif bar (250).

Tea. (insignificant)

Dinner: Vegetarian scallopini, zucchini and baked potato.(560)

Snack 2: Walnuts + 2% Milk.(115)

It came out to ~ 1570 calories, which is on the low side, but last night I went out for dinner and ate tons of pasta (yum!) so I wasn't very hungry today.  Normally, I would have had an afternoon snack, too.

Really struggling lately. Want to lose weight, even though I know I shouldn't. I was going to start posting on the maintainers forum, but now I don't feel like I can because i want to restrict. I really just need some support :/


Breakfast: 3 weetabix, 1 mocha yogurt, 1 small spoonful of almond butter, 2 gigantic strawberries

Lunch: Roast beef sandwich on WW (w/ lettuce tomato and cheese), 1 fruit frenzy Ice Pop, 3/4 of a banana

Snack: PB& banana sandwich, Baby Carrots

Dinner: 1 fillet of baked fish, 1 cup of eastern-style rice w/ 1 shrimp, 1 cup of melon, steamed broccoli, bunch of grapes

Snack: Chocolate brownie clif bar, yogurt, and more grapes and melon!


Exercise: 30 minutes of free weights, 45 minutes of cardio, 10 minute run, 15 minute bike ride, 30 minute walk

Breakfast: 1/2 cup oats w/ scoop vanilla protein powder and 1 cup milk, pomegranate Chobani greek yogurt

Snack: White Chocolate macadamia Clif bar

Dinner: Salmon fillet, a sweet potato, 2/3 cup peas, Chocolate Ensure plus

Snack: Detour chocolate caramel protein bar

themanicdoll: thanks for that :) I actually didn't reach out to them ,but just decided to text someone and get it off my mind, and it luckily worked :) by the way, how does the oatmeal taste in the morning with the protein powder? I like mine with PB and banana and condiments, but find that it's not super flavourful. Does it taste, err, vanilla-ey with it? haha :)

Breakfast: 1 bowl of high fiber cereal, 1 fried egg (fried in oil!), 1 cup of grapes, 1 mocha flavored yogurt

Lunch: Buffalo chicken sandwich w/ lettuce tomato and cheese, baby carrots, bunch of grapes, 1 iced oatmeal cookie clif Z bar

Snack: Chocolate soy milk, 1 chocolate chip brownie cookie, 1 granny smith apple


Exercise: 40 minute walk home from school, 1 hr spinning class, 15 minute-ish yoga cool down

Once again, when I had my portion on my plate today for supper i was CERTIN it had 600+ calories.. and would make me gain a ton of weight.

In reality, it was ~500-550. And normal. Gah.

I need to realize I ate more than this before my pointless diet, without gaining.

Anyways, :

Breakfast: Oatmeal with walnuts + fresh blueberries :) Coffee + almond milk

Snack: Pear and cheese.

Lunch: Veggie scallopini + zucchini + potatoes.

S2: More blueberries! And toast w/ a tiny bit of peanut butter.

S3: Tea!

Dinner: Spicy chickpea stew + couscous

S4: 2 squares of Lidnt chili chocolate. My cals were a little low, considering I'm doing a lot of physical activity tomorrow.

Total: ~1720 calories. Still slightly under maintenance.

haven't posted in ages, but figured I'd give it a go today

B: oatmeal with dried cherries and pistachios, a banana, 2% cottage cheese

L: clif mojo mountain mix bar; gala apple

D: amy's brown rice and veggie bowl, added steamed broccoli and cauliflower, spinach salad with light balsamic dressing

The last time I posted was several months ago during ED recovery, so I thought it'd be interesting to post how my eating habits are now! Here's what I had today:

lunch: 1 bratwurst(no bun) with sauerkraut, mustard, and a side of raw baby carrots

snack: Fruit salad: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, grapes, and apple slices

dinner: 5 oz.? of grilled chicken breast with a large baked sweet potato with cinnamon

dessert: A large handful of sprouted almonds with some blackberries

Drinks: 2 cup of green tea, bottle of crystal light pure, an entire liter of seltzer water, 2 bottles of plain water (I spent a lot of time outdoors, and it's as hot as hell now, so I was really really thirsty today xD)

Not bad! :D

kittycats502: congrats on your recovery!

This thread makes me feel less like I have to restrict - seeing older calorie intakes on the dash is always kind of disheartening (aka 1400 was too much, etc), seeing teen logs makes me realize that hey, eating more is normal.

Breakfast: Scrambled egg + onion, whole wheat toast, latte (369)

Snack1: Oatmeal to go cinnamon roll flavoured bar (160)

lunch: Spicy chickpea stew + couscous (448)

Snack2: Dried apricots + chocolate egg (95)

Snack 4: leftover croque monsieur (265)

Total : 2032 calories

Exercise: 40 minutes outdoor yoga, 30 minutes of track, 35 minutes of step/weights, 45 minutes of running for track.

Almost maintenance. Possibly so, since I'm not sure exactly how much cheese was used..

I was going to have a square of dark chocolate after supper, but I was still really hungry and for once actually listened to my body. (Hurray!) I should probably have just packed some more snacks so my calories didn't pile up at the end of the day, though.

kittycats: congrats on recovery! Your breakfast sounds mad good by the way! and bratwurst is really good too!! :)

thisiskaty: great to have people joining, and even better that you don't feel you need to restrict. I wanna make croque monsieurs the way you did. I thought they had ham, but now that I see yours doesn't, i'll be able to enjoy it (i hate ham lol). If you could give me a recipie of some sort, that'd be awesome (i'm not a very good cook lol). Congrats on the chocolate too!! :D

rough day. Was tired as hell but I worked out. Tomorrow's gonna be a full rest day though, so i'm looking foreward to it :) So scared i'm gonna start binging, but have restrained myself from having extras and such. Except for breakfast today, but I had an extra apple because I actually WAS hungry for it. I'm eating enough though, and slowly finding a good healthy balance :)
