Temptation and the Diet.

I don't have a sweet tooth. I'm lucky in that regard I suppose. I don't really dig chocolate or ice cream or biscuits. I rarely if ever have a dessert after diner, although rhubarb crumble makes me go weak at the knees.
Nope, I'm a savoury sort of gal, I like cheese, crisps, sour or salty things.
After some initial heel dragging I have at last started my training proper for October's Dublin City Marathon. This means- naturally- more running. Now I consider a body not unlike a car in that it needs fuel to run. So to this end I am attempting to clean up my diet a little, you know, making minor adjustments here and there, more fruit, lean meats, cutting back on delicious hooch and treating the toaster like it was a spiritualist.
My current diet consists of eating porridge in the morning. 30gs of oats and some skimmed milk, that's it. It's neither delicious nor not delicious. It is porridge. It is pretty good fuel actually and leaves you fairly full for a goodly number of hours, plus you can run on it.

HOWEVER, I feel I am being sabotaged! By a man no less! By the PARAMOUR. ( I should point out he says he's not doing any such thing, but you know, I'm not sure I believe him)

'Do you want white pudding on toast?' He asked me this morning, opening the fridge door.

This is appalling. Not only is he offering me exactly the sort of breakfast I DO want, he's offering to make it, and Fatcats like having food handed to them.

'No thank you, I'm having porridge.'

I proceed to measure EXACTLY 30g of dried oats into a bowl. I peer at it. It does not look very inspiring. Then I cover it with milk and bung it in the microwave. Behind me the GOOSEFAT or COW LARD or whatever the hell he's using to cook with is beginning to crackle in that filthy frying pan I keep threatening to throw out.
The Paramour- dressed only in his dressing gown that makes him look like a blue grizzly- slices three, THREE, big fat pieces of white pudding off his white pudding ring.

'Got enough pudding there?' I say, ooozing sarcasm on the word enough.

'Yep.' says the man I sleep with, sunnily.

I glare. He hums.
Next he pops two thick WHITE doorstep sized slices of bread into the toaster, the bloody TOASTER.

'Sure you don't want half a slice?'

'No...thank you.'

I press two minutes on the microwave. As I am microwaving my...porridge, he fries up the three big fat slices of delicious pudding, toasts his delicious big fat slices of bread, butters them with big fat butter, spreads the big fat pudding on the big fat toast and covers them in big fat white pepper.

In the meantime I remove my oats from the microwave and add some more skimmed milk, cold this time. Ooooh. And oh yeah, I stirred it.

We take our respective seats at the table. My mouth is watering, and it has fuck all to do with MY breakfast.

Then the man I share a bathroom with cracks his knuckles and fills his coffee cup. He pulls his plate closer to him and lifts a steaming slab of meat filled carb loaded artery clogging peppery goo to his mouth.


That was the drool from the corner of my mouth, bouncing off the rim of my oats bowl.

Just before he takes a bite he looks at me and says, grinning....

'How's your porridge?'

'Fine.' I say, but in my head I wished gout upon him.

Sigh. October seems so very FAR away, doesn't it?.

Dude you should mash a banana into your porridge, add some fresh cream and some honey. It is gorgeous. It seems a bit of an effort to make but it is worth it, alternatively you can do as I do, nip into my parents house just after my Dad has gone and steel the bowl he has left cooling for my mother!!

What is wrong with bread anyway?

How about beetles smushed up with kiwi fruit and then spread on a nice slice of tomato bread made from the tomatoes you grown in your own garden? I've got tomatoes in my garden but my giraffe keeps eating them! But I wouldn't trade my giraffe in for anything he saved my life going down the canal one day when I was chasing a balloon and going 'wheeeeeeeee' and then I ran into a lamppost and my eye came out and it was all hanging on a stalk and stuff and then when I went home the giraffe gave me a lick on the face and it put my eye back in and the doctor said that if my eye had stayed out a bee might have flown into the eye socket and stung me in the brain and i woulda died.

You’re training to run a marathon. 26 miles and some small bits. To do this you will cover loads of miles. Tons of them. Hundreds, thousands perhaps. And in the process you will burn gazillions of calories. It doesn’t matter what you eat, as long as you eat loads of it. White puddings, black puddings, eggs, bread, and as for wine and beer, drink loads to re-hydrate properly. Seriously FMC, really seriously, truly too, if you’re doing this type of exercise, your temple won’t give a flying fuck what you put into it as long it’s loads. Now me on the other hand, I just need to do the exercise to burn of my diet.

Aye, I did it last year, but this year I'm trying to run it 'better' (and please marmalade, knock some time off it) so I'm trying out a few new thing, er, like eating better and training better. But I so love food, I love it more than...well most other stuff, now that I think of it. Except delicious hooch of course.
On that note, I'm away to the gym.

I'm with you, Cat. It took me two months to lose 6-7 pounds, just exercising 5 days a week, avoiding alcohol on weekdays, and eating about 1200 calories of berries and yogurt and veggies a day. While SPOUSE, who drinks every day, eats chips and meat drenched in sugary barbecue sauces, and chocolate doughnuts and all manner of fatty, sugary things - HE loses 10 pounds in a week, just by playing basketball TWICE.

I'm not convinced that restricting one's diet is an awesome idea when upping one's mileage. Of course it has to do with fuel and whatnot, but for me it has to do with the fact that BECAUSE I'm burning more calories I get to eat more of everything. I try to weight my overconsumption towards the protein and veg rather than carbs, but that's about the only rule I follow. Protein is magic. Also, black and white pudding are magic. And I can't get either one here, so you must eat and enjoy for me.
In any case, I'd guess you're at your target weight and not really in danger of putting on another ounce as long as you're working out regularly, which you are.

oh FMC - i know what you mean. fortunately for me my other half has gained quite a bit.

i've switched to a full-fledged bike commuter, and was up in the air as to how much/little i needed to eat (i've also put on about 40 pounds due to my sloth and sweet as well as savory tooth). i casually use 'sparkpeople' because a) it's free and b) i like to procrastinate. so every morning i enter the approximate amount of calories i expect to burn (i adjust them later after using a heart rate monitor) and plan my diet accordingly.

surprisingly, i was cutting myself ridiculously short.... by 500-900 calories a day (i had no idea how much difference a heart rate monitor would make) so now i don't feel bad about a nice breakfast of egg whites, cheese, and beans, all wrapped up in a tortilla!

as for porridge - i throw in frozen (or fresh) berries to eliminate some of the blandness.

oh, and the other day i was perusing the 'international' aisle at the local grocery store, and i found jelly babies! now j and i can't seem to get enough of them....

Jelly babies, how I love jelly babies. Actually jelly anything, fruit pastilles, cola bottle sours, natural confectionary snakes mmmm, it runs in the family, this overwhelming love of jelly.

The older I get the more I have to watch my diet. I don't know why I can't eat whatever I like and still stay fit and relatively trim. It's so bloody unfair. I want to be able to eat a fry AND toast for breakfast, cheese and a brown sauce sammich for 11s, Buttery corn on the cob for lunch, Haribo Jelly sours for 3zs, a dinner of buttery peppery mashed potoates surround by a baked bean moat for dinner and rhubarb crumble and custard for afters AND drink a bottle of red wine with a cheese wheel at the ready at night.
YET SOMEHOW if I was to do this I would swell up like a ten day old corpse.

For me if I had to pick one thing to eat forever and maybe ever amen and so forth I think it'd have to be lion bars because they're all chwewy and they just have this aftertaste which you only get after eating a lion bar and no other kind o bar except sometimes a wispa but seen as you can't get wispans any more then it doesn't really matter so for me it'd be a line bar or corn beef sandwiches.

I like sweets. All my teeth are sweet and so are my gums. BUT, I only like it after savoury. I'm not one for sweet on its own. Therefore all my snacks turn into full-scale mini-meals with either a first, main and pudding courses or, more usually, a main, pudding and fruit course: a samblich, a biscuit and then a fistful of Starbursts. It would be nice to have full waiter and wine service with my snacks, of course, but I snack a lot and I would be a lush in about a fortnight.

Or a plate of large juicy prawns in garlic and fresh chilli butter. Followed by a small helping of homemade pavlova. You can probably tell this is my hungry time of day. Am not hungry in the mornings, so fruit smoothie made with water only for breakfast, egg salad for lunch - by evening I am ready for something piquant and substantial! I eat most of my calories in the evening after a one hour power walk with a couple of mates. Probably a foolish way to eat, but suits my body and my lifestyle.

Mmmchips and cheese, two of my personal favourites. Yesterday the paramour's brother grilled strips of haloumi cheese and dished them out, my gawd! Delicious. Can't believe I'd never had it before. Very yummy indeed.

A lot of people find eating in the morning not to their taste Shebah, my Spanish friend drinks one cup of tea and takes nothing before lunch time only that. her theory is her stomach doesn't even wake up until mid day.

Good for you thinking about your diet. Diet, rest and training can't be separated if better performance is your aim, or even comfortable performance. I wouldn't be worried about bread, as long as it's wheat. Its great fuel and you need carbs. A bagel and cream cheese, (or scrambled egg, or veggie sausages,) with coffee, (there isn’t one top level triathlete I know for whom caffeine isn't an addiction) is the breakfast of champions. Porridge is great too, but you need some protein as well in the morning.

I went to a lecture on how to fuel properly so let me see if I can synopsise.

Think of your day in 2 parts. Just before and during your workout, and after your workout. Your aim should be to take in as much calories as you burn during your workout and shortly after. Don’t skimp in the misguided effort to lose weight. You decrease or modify your food intake during the second part of your day and use that to lose some weight.

Suppose you are going to run in the mid morning. You get up and eat. Ideally slow burning fuel -see above. Later as you run your metabolism will go up – a lot. If you run for an hour you will probably burn around 1000+ calories. You need to replace this with carbohydrates, high glycemic carbs these are rapidly absorbed. You also need to keep hydrated. The best way to do this is with sports drinks, (buy in powder form, GU20, Cytomax, Gatorade, Cliff) and gels or bloks, (Gu, Cliff Shot Bloks, Sharkies). Realistically you will only be able to get in around 40% of what you burn. Otherwise you are running with a full stomach. Also you need to fuel before you need it. Don't fuel 10 minutes from the end of a run when you are already on an empty tank or dehydrated. When you finish your metabolism is still very high. This is the dangerous point in terms of over eating. What you need at this stage is too switch to about 200 - 300 calories of carbs and protein in a 3:1 ratio. Best thing, a small 250 ml container of low fat chocolate milk is perfect for this. If you had milk there are powders you can mix, Endurox etc (much more expensive than choc milk). This has two effects, your muscles are primed to build new muscle fibers and the protein fuel this, and the carbs will help decrease your deficit. For an hour and a half after you run your metabolism will still be high. Use this time to get in a meal that has a good mix of protein and carbs, but isn’t huge – 400 – 700 calories. At this point you have probably covered your calorie loss. During the second half of your day, switch to more protein based meals and eat often and small. Cut calories here if you want to lose weight.

Matt Dixon, the guy who trainer who runs my bike class, (exercise physiologist, ex pro triathlete, ex top level swimmer) has a few articles that are well worth reading (and short)

Also a hear monitor is a great tool, ideally you should get tested to figure our your thresholds, but when you run you will be able to determine what hear rate is your upper limit, at which you are working too hard. Add intervals that push you towards your max if you want to go faster. You won’t get faster by doing distance, only strength training and intervals will do

Remeber at the end of the day, everything is individual and these are guidelines to help someone figure out what works for them.

John thanks a million for that I really appreciate it.
I'm not worried about my weight really, just getting the best I can out my training and diet. In terms of protein I could possibly add an egg or two into my breakfast. I've added eating soy beans and pumpkin seeds to my diet recently, and find it really helps to eat protein after a heavy weight session. Especially now as I'm jumped up the weight a bit.
I'll check out those links later. Thanks again.

I don't pay too much attention to what I eat, I just avoid eating crap, (keep pizza takout and burritos to a minimum). I eat eags, beans, veggie burgers, sausages, cheese etc so protein is not a worry. I don't think there is a thing such as a sport specific diet. You just need to make sure you cover the calories you burn, with calories from healthy food, get enough protein, (most people vastly over estimate they amount of protein you need, its very hard to not get enough) and get proper rest.

Unfortunately alcohol is the worst, highly caloried almost nutritionally useless. But this is a do what I say not what I do moment, I drink 2 -3 glasses of wine most days. Fuckit, whats the point of being all fit if you cant enjoy the benefits, anyhow I don't drink much beer - which is scary calorific.

Sam the only way to get muscle is to hit the weights bench! Make sure to get some protein in the 15 minutes after you finish. It's very very hard for women to bulk (testosterone does that) so don't worry about it.

FMC - the key is to avoid thinking you can overeat. A lot of people put on weight when they begin to workout, because they don't fuel properly during the workout and are ravenous afterward and scarf the entire fridge when they get home, or worse dash to the store for coke and chocolate - if I ever bonk on the bike I immediately crave coke and chocolate. Although on very long rides, that can actually be a good think to get you up and going.

Is everyone aware of who Dara Torres is? Female US swimmer, 41 years old, just qualified for her 5th Olympics and set a US record of 24.38 in the 50 meters in the process. She also had a kid recently! I will be so pissed off if it turns out she was doping, but she has been tested very regularly so hopefully not. Its very inspirational. Sam's wanting to build muscle reminded me of her, her training is very stretch and muscle intensive, and she is ripped. Worth googling.

I do a fair amount of weights work on my legs already but my upper body strength is pathetic and is what I'd like to improve. I seem to have hit a plateau and it doesn't help that I hate working my upper body, but with a plan and a proper diet schedule to work with, I feel a bit more motivated to make it happen.

Layers of apple with a sponge batter poured on top and all baked in the oven so that the apples stewed and the sponge rose but as it rose it drew some of the stewing apple juices up making the sponge all moist with a sticky golden top which caramelised round the edges of the dish.

Heaven. I've never had a version that was half as good as my granny's though. Some people put pre-stewed apple at the bottom or diced instead of sliced apple and it turns out different for that - the sponge too doesn't get that natural appley-caramely glaze.

Grimsa, her's was less of a cake, and although it wasn't a steamed pudding exactly, the hot apple juice did steam the sponge. The bottom was all piping hot stewed apple slices so it was puddingy more than cakey. She did it in a pyrex bowl and served it with a big spoon digging down to the juicy apples below.

Haven't had that with apples but I remember one year we had a bumper crop of cukes and tomatoes in our garden in Minnesota. I exhausted every tomato recipe I could find until eventually we just ate tabouli for weeks and weeks. Gorgeous big multi-chambered heirlooms they were. The tastiest way to eat sunshine ... for about a fortnight, then it kinda got old.

Yes... that's why it's also called blood pudding. It's because of the blood, see? :)

And rare steak is so delicious. But it tastes nothing like the blood when you cut yourself and suck it. It's just juicy. It's like a red gravy.

Also steak-tartar as served in France. Raw minced steak with raw onions, salt, pepper and maybe some other things, and a raw egg on top of it all. Sounds disgusting, but surprisingly good. I can't eat much of it - I think my brain kicks in and makes me realise what I'm eating, but not before I've had half of it already. In Belgium they have a similiar thing called "American", where the mince is ground much more finely and they put it on sandwiches and serve with pickled gerkins and pickled onions. I'm not such a fan of that one.

Can't say I would be either, too raw. I wouldn't eat sweet-bread neither. Or liver or kidney or tongue or heart, it's not so much the taste, it's the texture. Gack.

I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and
bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

The oil acts on all the internal blood vessels and tissues in the organ to enhance its function like never before.
Aging during the first phase of life is found to be a generic
phase that converts the small baby to a young boy and
then to fertile adult. The blood gets heavier and thus it is doesn’t moves on quickly to all body parts.

You've to speak up and give good results details out together devoid of turning into an argument. When a patient uses the MUSE for the first time, it is generally advised to be used under the medical supervision. The worst thing that can happen is the method will not work.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site. It's
simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a amazing job
with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera.
Outstanding Blog!
