Hi all,

Ok, i had an idea that i would make a kind of checklist for a days eating and drinking to create a good quality ballanced diet. I want to make a list of food and drink that i can tick off every day to keep my diet good and me healthy.

(I put this in GD rather than sports as i think a good diet is not only for the health freaks amonst us).


I'l modify the list as you all make suggestions and we agree upon them



LIST...

5 fruit or veg a day
plenty of water
a cup of coffee
a cup of green tea
1 yoghurt
chicken/eggs/turkey/steak (aim for a couple a day, they dont have to be big portions)
2 digestive buiscits a day (i read somewhere that 2 a day is supposed to be good for you)
1 bowl of good cerial
2 peices of wholewheat bread
Some honey used as sweetner (rather than sugar!)
A handful of mixed nuts
Milk
Half a can of beens
Handfull of rice or side order of pasta
A little red wine
Fish/ 2 eggs a day
Some potato, atleast one a day.

forget about honey and biscuits.

High Fiber (fruit and veg)
Low Fat
Plenty of fluid
With some meat and carbs.


Don't force yourself to eat biscuits and coffee.

Which fruit and veg is particularly high fiber? I have heard that a cup of coffee a day is good for you to, the caffine is good for some stuff....

I have read a lot of good stuff about coffee in mens health. Everything i have read seems to point to the fact that its good for you as long as you only have a cup or 2 a day. People drink it before training to remember, so must be good for somthing!

caffeine has no nutritional value, it increases blood flow and actually put a strain on your heart (too much).

As for fruit and veg, leaf vegetables like Spinach, tomatoes, have an apple, banana (potassium), stuff like that. If you are feeling hungry, eat some fruit. A Banana has about 100 calories, and releases energy slowly rather than sugar rush high such as redbull or sweets.

Yeah, caffeine is bad. Pretty bad.

For high fiber you can't beat beans, and as an athlete a good general meal (no sporting events at the time) can be something as simple as

Couple of sausages (The real kind, not processed crap)
Mashed potatoes
Beans
Mixed veg

Banana milkshake (Made with banana blended into milk :) )

Then anything reasonably ok, not necessarily fruit, for some kind of dessert if you so wish :)




Personally I prefer pizza+microwavable meal finished off with some cherry bakewells :D

I'l add beens to the list! I eat loads and loads of baked beans (low in salt ones) and i know there good for you. I rarly miss a day when i dont have half a can of beans. They go with everything!
