Heathly Eating

Soop | Dec 13, 2012 02:13 AM

Well I started to work out a little, and for fuel, taking my diet a little more seriously. Also, I moved office recently, so instead of home-cooked style meals, my option now is pretty much sandwiches or bring something in.

I find it quite hard to do the maths as to what a good carbs/protein/fibre split is, and also, I just eat through the day when I'm hungry rather than set meals. I'm doing weight training to gain more mass, and this is what I'm eating today (pretty much standard day):

2 x Clemantines
1 Banana
2 Carrots (in sticks)
3 Celery stalks (in sticks)
1 pot of houmous for dipping above two items
1 fruit corner youghurt
1 large portion of chicken stew
1 bowl of porridge for breakfast (with golden syrup and dried fruit)
1 bowl of veggie soup

I'll also be eating an extra youghurt someone's given me, and maybe some quiche, plus loads of empty carbs from beer later :/

So I'm getting my 5 a day, but hows the proportion of carbs/fibre/protein? Also I have no idea about calories, I just know to eat something when I'm hungry and it's worked out so far.

As for weight, I'm 10.5 stone, or 147 lbs right now
