(not sure if they also have a thread on here and wasn't able to find it on search)

After my 2015th post (the year Marty McFly goes to the future), you will be able to find me on www.eatingdisordercentral.com 

This is in order to find all my content, get some answers, and tie up any loose ends.

I will still respond to PMs on here if anyone has any questions.

Rice noodles and veggies!! I cook a nest of rice noodles (which is about 70-100g so that's around 100 cal) and I make a sauce for them using three teaspoons of sweet chilli sauce and 1 1/2 teaspoons of soy sauce. When the noodles are cooked I pour the sauce over and combine it with the noodles. I chop up whatever veggies I have lying around (today it was red pepper and carrots) and it is sooo good! Overall it comes in at under 200 calories depending on how much you use, so it gives you plenty of wiggle room to have something else on your 200 cal day! xx

A couple of lighter meals:


Miso soup with mushrooms and zero noodles and seasoning.


Small banana sprinkled with cinnamon/cacao, teaspoon creme fraiche.


A really satisfying one:

I make a thick soup using miso, sweet potato, red pepper, carrots, chilli, onion, garlic and tinned tomatoes.

I add the calories together then freeze in carefully divided batches so I know how many cals are in each portion.


Enjoy  x

- 1 egg (80) + 2 egg whites (35) + 100g kale (35) + 1 fat-free yogurt (50) = 220


- 200g pepper (50) + 150g boiled peas (120) +1 fat-free yogurt (50) = 220


- 1 pack miso soup (35) + 1 egg (80) + 1 egg white (17) + 200g zucchini (50) + 1 chamomile tea (0) = 182


- 20g oats (76) + 150ml low-fat milk (66) + 125g any berries (aprox. 65) = 207


Low-fat milk has the same macros (but obv different kind of fat, protein and carbs, and micronutrients) as sweetened (but not flavored, those have more sugar) soy milk.

Salad, no nuts, no oil in the dressing.. hope you ate well the rest of the day.

I suggest making a vinaigrette with oranges that way there is lots of flavor and very little calories.. grapefruit are always great too and packed full of nutrients. Also eating pieces of whole grapefruit is a really good idea because that's where most of the fiber resides.. pink and red grapefruit is loaded with beta carotene.... better choice than the white grapefruit.

Choose a mixture of salad greens, add a few white mushrooms, thinly sliced radishes.. Diakon rashish goes really well with citris i find. , bean sprouts for texture.. and melon is a great toss in too. Do not add sugar to your vinegarette

Salad with one or two hard boiled eggs, dressed with salt and vinegar has become a staple for me.

Caprese salad with low-fat mozzarella, salt and oregano.

a sandwich! 

weight watchers whole wheat bread is only 100 cals for TWO slices (its also low carb) then pile on your favourite veggies and maybe some vegetarian "meat" (i loved fake bacon and found a lot that were 2  pieces for 50 cal at my local grocery store/walmart) and there you go. if you don't put any high cal veggies on your sandwich you can EASILY add half a slice of kraft sliced cheese (25 cals)

cauliflower rice is my SAVIOR when i need a low cal dinner, one serving is literally 20 calories. a few cups of that with reduced sodium soy sauce/tamari/liquid aminos (theyre all basically the same thing lmao), some other steamed or sauteed veggies, and a tiny sprinkling of chia seeds and boom. suuuper filling tasty dinner. usually i use greens like spinach and massaged kale (really healthy and low in calories) with bell peppers, broccoli, and carrot. i also add stuff like black beans, chickpeas, lime juice, and tofu on a day when i let myself eat more:)

Baked sweet potato = 100 cal
2 cups of zucchini noodles = 132 caps
If you want a warm, savory dinner I would totally go for this. It is 232 cals, but if your sweet potato is small it should be around 200.

Vegetarian egg drop soup very filling, quick, easy and lowcal. Bring two cups of water to a boil add a teaspoon of braggs liquid aminos or soy sauce. Then add a whole slice of ginger about half a thumb size and one or two vegetarian bullion. Simmer the broth and whisk two egg whites together and slowly add them cook until they are white and firm. It's 100 ish calories for the whole pot of soup. Also for salad t go with it chop up some elettuce, shred, carrots, slice cucumber, and add cherry tomatoes and cabbage shredds use one tablespoon of lite asian dressng, Low cal and filling meal.

If you are craving something sweet put one tablespoon of sugar free jam on a rice cake ~30 calories.
