I decided to switch from sandwiches to salad for lunch a while back. I buy a truckload of salad on Sunday, and it lasts me through to Thursday (I do something different on Friday to keep a bit of variety).
I'm below 13st in weight (down from 16 and a half from a few years ago), but I seem to be creeping closer to 13st again. The only change to my diet recently has been the salad, so I'm wondering whether I'm putting too much salad in or something. Does anyone have any pointers? Any vegetables I should add or try to avoid?
The current daily salad is like this:
75g spinach (I was using lettuce, but darker greens are better I believe)
Chopped quarter of green, yellow and red peppers
Around 4 radishes
1 or 2 sticks of baby corn
2 spring onions
2-4 celery sticks
3-4 button mushrooms
125g of sliced carrots
About 60ml of fat free vinaigrette dressing
Plus some bread-based thing on the side (usually one and a half wholemeal pittas, but this week I bought sandwich thins as pittas were all gone, and I'm taking three slices with me each day).
It barely fits into a pretty large container, and it's noticeable heavy (but I'm guessing that's mostly water weight). It takes me most of my break time to eat it (45 minutes), and I don't get hungry again until about half past 4.
Any advice? :waves:
