Default My eating habits.

OK, so since I've been gone, my primary focus has been on my appearance, as usual, but now even more so. I've had a lot of time on my hands from being off a school a lot, it's been cold, and I've been taking care of my grandfather who is back home from the hospital after breaking his leg last May, so I've been in the house and able to really focus on my looks.

The past weeks, this has been my general eating habit:

Breakfast: Small/medium size bowl of oatmeal or an apple.

Lunch: Small/medium size bowl of oatmeal; a salad; or occasionally an egg salad sandwich(es).

Dinner: Salad and/or green with tons of spice to quicken my metabolism; fish with tons of spice; occasionally spaghetti.

I drink 4 ice cold bottles of waters per day between meals, which I will see if I can bump up to 5. I don't drink anything else but water.


So, my grandparents are basically scared because they say I have an eating disorder. My best friend Marty says I look completely different. My aunt, whose a doctor, said I have a mental disorder which results in me not eating.

Personally, I don't think I have an eating disorder. I eat what I want to eat and don't eat bullshit. I ONLY eat like this for appearance reasons. I do NOT care about any other reasoning behind eating like this, because if I could, I would eat pizza, cake and ice cream, but I can't, because emotionally I will feel like shit if I do and I will freak out. I would stay inside and do nothing if I were/felt ugly. Being ugly for me is just horrible. Life is too short to be ugly and be unhappy about being ugly. I care about my appearance exponentially more than I care about food, or eating. I like to eat but it will never get in the way of my appearance.

Anyway, my question for everyone is, do YOU think I have an eating disorder? And if so, why? The reason I ask this is partially to toot my own horn, because I love my eating habits and think if people want to have a slim figure and structured face, my way is the way to eat. But I also want to hear from third party, non-family/personal RL friend sources about my eating habits, because occasionally I have felt sick, just yesterday, I was craving an egg salad sandwich but I resisted the urge. I honestly think I just have self-control to know certain things I can and can't eat, and I have a goal that I want to reach and am basically there. But I also sort of need a different perspective, to help me see if what I'm doing is actually beneficial for me or not in the end.

Anyway, vote up people, thanks

P.S. Mods I BEG of you not to close nor merge this thread with anything else. I PLEAD that you don't and respect my wishes. Thanks.

Default Re: My eating habits.

Today is my egg salad day, meaning a cheat day. I usually have one or two cheat days per week to eat egg salad, spaghetti, chicken, something of the sort.

Then I make up for it by cutting back for several days consecutively. So tomorrow, I'll have an apple for breakfast, salad for lunch, and probably a green and more salad for dinner, or maybe fish and a green. And that will be virtually no sodium, little cholesterol, and 500 calories or less. Do that for several days, and everything is fine. No exercise yet lose weight; it's perfect!!!

hi Filo, welcome back

no, you are not having eating disorder, but you are eating very healthily and too little in my opinion. I think you can only do this diet for some day, and then you should get to eat some more like meat to supplement your nutrition, and then you can go back to this strict diet again.

Actually I think I need to copy your diet, coz i am over-weighted and have high blood pressure problem but i can't, i can just eat a little less, can't eat as little as you . If i can do your diet for a week, may be my high blood pressure and cholestorel will go down a lot.

I would eat pizza, cake and ice cream, my beloved

Default Re: My eating habits.

I admire your abilities to eat healthy like this I find I have some really bad habits when I eat. Either I don't eat enough or I eat too much. For example, today I have had four apples which is healthy, but I ate them with caramel dip which is not very healthy. Aside from that, I had a turkey sandwich (on white bread ) and I'm about to make some rice. I wake up in a rush to get to classes so I don't normally eat breakfast, and for the past couple weeks I'd been eating two PopTarts as breakfast, with a thermos of hot chocolate. Often, I stop in the campus dining hall and get something quick and fried, which is even worse.

you still eat more healthy and little than me. 4 apples+1 turkey sandwich+rice would not be enough for me for one day, these would only be enough for my breakfast and lunch

Why no exercise? Nobody can look good without exercise. You may lose all the fat, but with no muscle tone you would just look wan and anorexic.

Default Re: My eating habits.

For me, a basic day is cereal w/ milk in the morning + multivitamin.

Then a few hours later, a bagel with peanut butter.

Then, another hour or two, and a half a cup of pasta. Then another hour, and off to the gym and/or tennis courts.

Upon my arrival back home, protein shake. And towards the end of the night a few hours before bed, a nice Campbell's Chunk NFL Soup for dinner and that's it.

And I drink a shitload of water all day, every day.

Default Re: My eating habits.

Why don't you eat more? Man I think you might have an eating disorder. Not sure, but I think you eat too little...

Go to a nutricionist and start eating more. And go to the gym if you care so much about your look
Eat healthy, but eat MORE.

I have a developed 6 pack, though. I do some light exercise at home like crunches and jogging around the block, but I don't like going to the gym, because it's work and I'm averse to doing anything related to work.

Default Re: My eating habits.

You definitely have a bad attitude towards food, but so do I. Are you intentionally maintaining your body weight at a BMI below the 85th percentile? If you're at least at a healthy weight, then there's no big issue yet.

But where is the iron in your diet? Calcium? Vegetables other than leafy ones?

Thanks hun but I honestly don't know if these eating habits I employ are healthy, because my energy levels are weird. I don't know if that's due to lack of sleep or a messed up metabolism. You're supposed to eat a minimum 1800 calories a day if you're a man and being tall, I have a minimum calorie intake per day of like 2100. And I virtually never hit 1000-1200, let alone 1800. But I appreciate the kind words all the same! It's hard eating like this but it's definitely worth it.

Four apples is definitely healthy but that quite a high amount of sugar You have a college students' eating habits, which are generally always scattered, but for the most part your eating habits sound good! It's easy to make a couple adjustments. Like instead of pop tarts, have a couple of apples for breakfast instead. Rather than coffee, put some smooth hot chocolate in your thermos. Have non-salted nuts or carrots for a snack instead of apples. And trade the white bread for whole grain or whole wheat. Your eating habits are significantly better than most college students, and the important thing is that you have an understanding on what is appropriate to eat and what isn't. That's always the first step.
