Food, Food, Food ( A day of Food)

Food, Food, Food, ever get sick of eating food?

Okay, so that's the main reason I still have my G-Tube is that don't like eating constantly, feeling full all the time, and I'm not a fan of high cal. food.

Born with CF, but don't care for fast food, sweets, or anything that potentially could help me gain weight. So I compromise: eat what I want, when I want, and do 1,400 cals over night while sleeping.

However, as you know I'm trying to really, REALLY, get my lung function up. 1. Dr. Boas is challenging me and I don't step down to challenges 2. and of course, I want to be healthy!

So weight affects lung function, so the easiest way to bring up my lung function is bring up my weight. So I figured I would let everyone see what I eat on day to day basis.

(Note: Todays breakfast was bigger than usual, I usually will drink an ensure, eat a powerbar, cereal and reach 700 cals. Then eat more cals at lunch/dinner!) I Always try to eat 2,500 cals a day + 1,400 night= 3,900

BreakFast

Banana, Cream Cheese French Toast Sandwich, eggs (w/condensed milk), and iced coffe total.....................................................1,500


(This nows means I can have something more simple and smaller calories for dinner, I really prefer a salad or soup, etc)

I ended up running errands in the town next to my hometown, so ended up eating at a HyVee......................................................700ish calories.

For Dinnner I had pecan encrusted cod and parmesan noodles.....500

Had a snack of pretzels, mango applesauce, ..................................200
                                                                 Total for day ................2,900 cal.
                                                                  After Fedding..............4,300 total

check out this site for high cal meals to prepare! ( i got the french toast sandwich there, but I used the whole banana and left over milk/egg mixture for scrambled eggs (but added two more eggs))
