I put into MyFitnessPal:

50g oats
1 cup blueberries
-
1 apple
-
2 wholewheat biscuits
200ml almond milk
1 banana
-
100g broccoli
100g carrots
200g chicken
100g pasta

I put this into My Fitness Pal which came to 1,028 calories although there was no log of what you have with oats ... water, almond or cows milk and also not sure how much you have, it could be more or less? I also put the max of your veg measurements in.

So dependent on how much oats you have and what with that is under eating plus you are exercising.

The macros for this as a guideline is:
162g carbs
11g Fat
70g Protein

So your carb intake is pretty high. For me I want my protein higher than my carbs!

Obviously everyone is different and I can only give you advice on what I would do (I too don't follow a 'plan') but the carbs would come down for me and the protein up.

I'll paste the food list again below with the carb information so you can see that too. I think it can be benefiting.

50g oats ... 30.2g
1 cup blueberries ... 21g
-
1 basic apple ... 11.8g
-
2 wholewheat biscuits - 25.7g
200ml almond milk 0.2g
1 banana ... 20.9g
-
100g broccoli ... 6.6g
100g carrots ... 14.4g
200g chicken ... 0g - 48g of protein though
100g pasta ...31.3

Things to note are berries and greens are high on the HAVE THEM list. Berries, bananas, apples & grapes are good post workout for good carbs. I'd eat berries all day though.

For me the wholewheat biscuits would change to something good fat and protein (like avocado and eggs). Pasta would be at least half of that and I'd double up the chicken. Chicken, broccoli and eggs are also lovely together.

I don't know if that helps at all. On my journey I listened and read a lot of what worked for others and adapted so much to meet my needs.

The reason I eat like this it's because I get biscuits for free, I have tried strawberries with oats and I use almond milk , pasta I've come to realise im using less than 100g as I have the same 500g bag of pasta for the last 6 dias and still have left, brócoli is around that, I replaced carrots with tomatoes today don't know if it's a good thing, but can I just remove pasta completely and introduce 1 boiled egg? The biscuits bit what could I possibly exchange ? 2 boiled eggs maybe? Or? Please also consider I'm running every day, doing 2 to 3 km and this is increasing gradually

For free? As in you don't pay for them or free on hit eating plan?

I weaken if I don't have carbs, they are a good source of energy too. I'm just thinking of you mentioning bloat ... pasta and. Read especially make me bloat. You don't really see what is the cause until you cut it out/down and reintroduce it! I will eat a pasta dish once every 1-2 weeks and same with bread.

You can swap the carbs out with any good protein or good fat food if you wanted.

I do strength and conditioning. Depending on the intensity depends on my food and quantity. On rest days I try and eat minimal carbs and more food fats. On strength days both and if conditioning is high then I will allow more carbs in on that day. Generally my carbs are post workout which is a banana usually with a protein shake but I do workout at 6.15am in the morning. Then evenings carbs ...

I work out just before dinner, free don't pay for it, but I'm not bloated anymore it was from oats , I jumped into this diet in 1 day so my body reacted, but again is it ok to replace pasta for 2 boiled eggs or 1? So it's brócoli , chicken, tomato and boiled egg?

I have found that over my time of losing the weight that dropping pasta, rice, and bread from my diet has resulted in easy weight loss and my hips being slimmer than they were back in the day when I was the same size I am now. I can only put this down to dropping the above named. :-)

I love greek yog, yes.

Don't see carbs as an enemy ... they are good energy and post workout just try to have whole or/and good carbs with moderation. Greek yog oat are lovely too (over night oats).

Daisy I agree. I get a carb baby when I eat too much or pasta regardless. Bloat bloat ...

The Greek is for when I wake up, 200g 10g of fat and 4.9g of carbs and 5.7g of proteins is this good?
