edited December 2009 in The bottom bracket
Since mid September I have lost 2 stone and feel better for it.
I have cut out virtually everything I like such as beer (I hardly drink anyway so that was easy), pastries and eating out where I used to have big meals.

However, I'm still partial to those Weatherspoons Gourmet burgers..... :lol: ...but haven't eaten one since October time.

I like crisps, but I cut them out too, I love chocolate though and we're ploughing our way through our 2nd tin of Roses already.... :oops:

We've eaten a few chinese takeaways too and of course we love our fish n chips. :)

    Crisps crisps crisps :(

    Only one packet a day but my dinner break in work just somehow doesn't seem right without them :(

    Doesn't really matter what flavour i think it's a texture thing :)

  • Scampy frys, mmmmmmmmmmm, don'treally eat much cr@p though, booze on the other hand........ :wink:
  • Kebabs! I love 'em - and I don't even have to be drunk! I'll be honest and say I love junk food in general and it's just as well that I love cycling/running too.

    Steakbakes from Greggs or a scotch pie washed down with Bovril when I'm at the rugby.
    Perfect on a freezing cold day.

    I must say that lately I'm going through nuts a lot.
    Brazil nuts, Hazelnuts and Walnuts are my fave.

    Bought a big Sainsbury Basics bag for £3.49 and you get loads...... and they taste good too....no bad ones. :D

    Can't beat a good fry up. Don't do it very much anymore, usually when staying at a B&B.

    Parmo'n'Chips= 2600 calories! Bloody hell! My arteries are furring up just reading about it!

    Oh, er, the quarter pounder with blue cheese from Manhattan Burgers in Widcome, Bath. Legendary meaty naughtiness round these parts.

    Chicken Parmo looks awesome... may have to try making something like that soon!

    Pringles - have eaten 4 tubs in the last week when I was trying to get some work done.
    Haribo maoam strips
    anything with lots and lots of parmesan in / on it

    150g of fat!!!

    I know people who eat 3-4 of these a week. They are ridiculous, but a good treat. I think I've eaten about 3 all year, one being after doing the C2C in 2 days (think I'd earned it)

    Apart from that: pizza, crisps, chocolate, chips, monster energy drink, pastries, icecream, biscuits, full fat coke etc etc.

    I love everything you shouldn't eat.

    @Stefanos: There was a pub near the new Wembley stadium that got taken over by contractors from Boro, apparently they had em making good parmos by the time the stadium was finished (took long enough :lol: ).

    There's a few good recipes kicking about too!

    The legendary(in these parts) Breakfast Bap from Roy's Boys in Sheringham. A Very large bap filled with eggs,bacon,sausages, mushrooms etc. Its an art just trying to keep it all within the boundaries of the roll. :D

    bah was hoping you had a started off at something disgustingly heavy.
    Been floating between 14 and 15 stone for years despite trying to get down to 12ish.

    Like the OP I'm dieting at the moment and lost 10lbs in the last 2 weeks. I've been counting calories and eating more healthy food but I think the big difference is I've cut out the love of my life, biscuits - bourbons are my favourite but pretty much any will do. The final straw was when I found myself eating my 'bit on the side' ice cream (5 scoops) with 3 crushed ginger nuts on top! I work from home a few days a week and would eat 6 or 8 biscuits a couple of times a day even making myself a cuppa just as an excuse to dunk some biscuits. To think when I raced regularly 15 - 20 years ago I couldn't get my weight over 11 stone (6'1") and at my max lately I was up at 15 stone.

    Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut. Can eat two whole pizzas (mediums) in one sitting. Fortunately - I don't do that any more. Might explain why I was 18.5 stone at one point.


    Now, my biggest weaknesses are chocolate and crisps. If I could cut those two things out - I would easily lose the last 2 stone I'm trying to drop!!
