Writing about web page http://www.illwillpress.com/vault.htmlI was reading the nutritional content of a carton of apple juice the other day & I realised that to consume the whole carton (1 litre) would cost me almost 500 calories! 500 calories! That's 1/4 of my daily recommended daily allowance! How am I ever supposed to consume my 5 portions of fruit/veg a day if it's gonna cost me that much! I mean where will I be able to fit in the nicer tasting more calorific food stuffs that make eating worth while? I mean who really wants to eat stuff like lettuce? It's 96% water & guess what…..it tastes like it too! Same with celery! I don't pretend to be the healthiest person ever, actually my house mates will tell you that I'm incredibley unhealthy, but I do like to try & look after myself. But then when they make it so hard for you why bother? I'm only allowed to eat 200 calories a day as a adult female & only allowed 70g of fat. Amongst that I need to consume 5 portions of fruit a day & 8 glasses of water! If I concentrated on getting that down my throat every day I wouldn't have time to think about anything else in my day. I realise that I'm starting to sound like a neurotic, food obsessed woman so I think now would be a good time to stop my rant. Instead I would liek to dedicate this blog to the jiggly butt & say screw ideal food intake. I'll eat what I want & if that makes me a fat bloater at least I'll be happy & enjoying what I eat!
