    Reading stuff on here,i get the impression that most people on here all are eating,or should i say drinking,the same mainly living off milksugars and fructose.
    But i am curious if there are people who have a sucrose&starch basis of eating with dairy ofcourse and if so what their meals on average are like,as in food not macros/cals.
    I also wonder if there are people on here in a kind of fun creative way of daily eating such as the things posted on the pintetrstlink id posted in the recipe thread?

    Bc petsonally a largrly liquidbased diet wouldnt work for me as i need to chew,have something more solid in order to feel satiated

    Adequate protein, sugar, salt, better calcium to phosphate ratio are all things I am going for. Pretty strict peat atm and I have zero temptations to "cheat". Slack on the carrot salad, coffee and gelatin admittedly.

    I am drinking ~2L skim milk, ~1L oj, eggs (sometimes eat shells depending how much meat ive had that day), usually have either mussels, prawns, bacon (going to drop) for night meal. Buying different fruits, melons, papaya, mango, grapes and eating different ones to vary the fruit in my diet, I think I am going to stick to melon regularly. Eating between 9-27g gelatin per day (I buy 9g sachets so 1-3 of those) but not noticing a great deal from it so sometimes forget to take it. Sometimes eat cheese but trying to lose some weight so I am not eating that regularly. A fair bit of salt, realised I can get 1tsp salt into a cocoa drink, (2 tbsps cocoa, 2 tbsps sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1tsp salt, ~500ml milk) and I can't tell at all, so going to start doing that more often.

    I am roughly around 100g protein, 250g carb, 40g fat, 1800 calories.

    Yes that pinterest page is very good and you could make this diet quite exciting if you wanted to. I intended to include recipes from that page in the future, should I get bored. I have been doing the one ingredient pancakes from that page, just eggs and water then having sugar, lemon, chocolate sauce as toppings.

    I've been looking at the recipe page - thanks!
    Today I am making venison stew, blackcurrant ice cream, and if there's time chocolate mousse and possibly marshmallows too. Admittedly, today is not a typical day - but you asked about being creative etc.

    Breakfast-OJ w/baking soda, coffe w/milk, sugar, 2 eggs scrambled in c.o. Lots of salt more OJ and milky, sugary, coffee. Lunch-salted cottage cheese with fruit or honey or Swiss cheese and fruit, coffee, milk and sugar, OJ, milk for snacks Dinner-beef, chicken, fish, plus potato or rice plus fruit, weekly- liver, oyster stew, shrimp
    Gelatin gummy snacks, Haagen daz ice cream <3, mexi coke, Pepsi throwback
    Chicharrones

    I make dinner for family so I try to incorporate bone broth in when I can. I eat small amount of the meats. Some complain about wanting vegetables. Haha. We love potatoes and white rice with butter, coconut oil and a lot of salt. Not too gourmet, just trying to get all the basics down. Making gummy snacks weekly, chocolate syrup, broth. Going to try marshmallows if I can find organic corn syrup . Got fresh oysters and steamed and shucked last week to make stew. Would like to eat raw but would require too much beer, cracker, and cocktail sauce. ;)

    How do you go with coffee as snacks? Do you get a bad response not having it with a meal?

    My coffee is a meal. I make it with about a cup of coffee, a cup of milk, 3-4 tsp sugar and 2 TB of gelatin. It is rich and full and satisfying.
    Sometimes I replace the sugar with chocolate syrup for cafe mocha.

    So there is ample protein, fat and carbs.

    I drink my coffee with a lot of milk. I have an aeropress coffee maker which really concentrates the coffee so I have maybe 1/5 cup of coffee to 4/5 cup of milk. That + the gelatin seems to work fine for me.

    Hey thanks for this post! I just looked at this coffee maker and I'm think I'm going to order one. They ship from Canada no less! This looks exactly like what I'm looking for and will enable me to cut back on liquids.

    How do you like the aeropress jaa?

    I use an Aeropress as well, and it's my favourite brewing method.

    It's my first coffee maker, so I don't have much to compare it to, but it works great so far. You can reuse the filters and it's very convenient for bringing on the road or camping to to it's size and lack of need for electricity. The concentrated coffee is a nice benefit as well. :)

    Edit: I also use the inverted method for brewing - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0t7p9L02nA

    Thanks Scott! Just placed my order and should be delivered tomorrow! :woo

    The Aeropress has such a huge following that there are annual international competitions for making the best Aeropress coffee! There are competitions being held in Australia and Japan this month! :lol:
