How much junk do you eat, and do you think it's still 'bad' for you if you burn a good proportion of it off, as I'm assuming most of us do. Whilst at work I tend to eat oat cereal bars and something like houmous and ryvita as I don't like the feeling of beeing stuffed at work - sort of healthy-ish. But most evenings in the week I eat a huge pasta dish made with sprinkly cheese on the top and garlic bread, or lasagne with chips or a chilli and rice dish with yet more garlic bread. And I usually hoover up whatever scraps the kids leave on their plates like fish figers etc. Every Friday ends with a mountain of chips and bread and butter and Saturday is usually pizza, kebab or takeaway curry night. then we're back to Sunday and it's back to chilli or pasta again. I normally get through half a litre of extra virgin olive oil every week without fail and get through 4 garlic bulbs a week. I also like a few cans of beer or bottle of plonk every other night. Healthy me, eh? lol. Despite this, my doc says my cholestorol is almost zero! I'm just starving all the time. Do you people eat healthy as part of your training? I was almost 15st when I took up running, unsurprisingly, but I shed 3st and have stayed like this since, despite the intake of supposedly 'bad' food.
