    I am recently single, and meal planning has always been difficult for me. So, I starve and then eat whatever I can get my hands on. I have heard that there are meal planning programs that plan you meals for a week, and give you the recipe and the shopping list for the grocery store........ Has anyone tried these????

    It's either that or I need to find a Top that knows how to cook icon_razz.gif

    Personally I would be worried about someone else planning my meals. (Mostly because im not a huge fan of different types of cheeses..)

    I would suggest checking out the RJ "diet" guide. It really has a great layout on what kinds of foods are good to be eating.

    It is what helped me mental plan for my food shopping. And If really has helped me lose weight. (Which is what is important.)

    Try eatingwell.com if you'd like.

    I spend about 30 minutes every Friday afternoon planning out my meal ideas for the upcoming week. I plan on cooking 5 out of 7 nights each week and buy the ingredients as listed in the recipes plus any extras such as snacks, soy milk, spices, and condiments. You can adjust the recipes as needed because they are intended for 2 or more people.

    My pleasure!

    It focuses on healthy eating and living. You can search by a variety of recipe types, meal types, specific ingredients, 'diet' requirements, and so on. It's free to register for an account/profile as well. And seriously, who doesn't love a healthy eating way of life that lets you eat cookies and cakes made with whole wheat flour?

    A site that lets you enjoy cookies?!!?

    I need to check this out also... Back to the topic

    I don't plan my meals and some days I pay for it by making getting a chef's salad from the grocers before work. Not that it's too terrible but it isn't the tastiest thing in the world.

    Get yourself a big pot, and some freezer bags. Cook your shit up on the weekends. Have about 30 to 50 grams of protein per meal, and about 30 to 60 grams of carbs. Throw in some a bit of fat and you're done. Repeat.

    It's one of the most simple things you'll ever do in your life.

    Remember: sexual preference, nor gay sexual position (Mr. Bottom) has bearing on proper eating. If it does, something is wrong.

    You eat your own faeces? That´s disgusting, but not totally surprising.

    Chucky do you measure your foods prior too cook or after. I was going to do this once but I got talked down saying it's over the top...

    I usually do beans and rice (white/brown/jasmine) or chicken california mix and rice such as today.

    I add a banana and/or an apple to give myself something sweet.
