I want to know what everyone is eating during the day (mainly O nonnies or just O's), supplements taking, and also everyone's exercise schedule.  Just be good to get some more ideas, adjust here and there and see what everyone is eating...
Here's mine as of right now:

get up:  drink big glass of water
bfast: eggs, some kind of veggie, hot tea
Supplements taken in the a.m. - seacure caps, calcium, multi vit, fish oil cap, catechol, probiotic

go to gym and work out: aerobics or running and/or strength training

home: drink smoothie with hemp powder, 1/2 tsp maca, cup blueberries, one banana, water

couple hours later:  lunch:  salad with olive oil and kelp on it, with red meat burger and a few walnuts

before dinner:  fresh juice:  carrot and pear with some spinach or other green

couple hours later:  dinner:  salad, veggie like brocolli or peas or greens, fish or chicken or beans like lentils

later:  hot herbal tea

before bed:  full glass of water

Here is a "typical" day:

1 glass (about 2 cups) water first thing

Breakfast: Around 8am
1 cup fruit smoothie (I make 2 cups and put the rest in the fridge for later): banana, raspberries, blueberries, mango, lecithin, flax oil, juice
1 egg cooked in ghee
Some sort of veggie (usually broccoli)

Btw breakfast and lunch I try to drink 1L (4 cups) of water.  I also have a cup of tea (eg: green, kukicha, dandelion, rooibos, herbal).

Lunch:  Anywhere between 11:30am to 1:30pm
Dried fruit (raisins usually) or pumpkin seeds or some other sort of compliant snack if I have a long day at school
Some sort of protein (eg: beef meatballs, all beef sausage, chicken breast, roast chicken skin and all)
Kale with red peppers
Carrots
Maybe some celery

If I have a late lunch break I will eat part of my lunch during class a bit earlier in the day if I am getting hungry, then finish the rest on my lunch break.

Btw lunch and dinner I try to drink another 1L (4 cups) water.  I may have another tea if I am at school late.  I try not to have more than one cup of green tea per day - I discovered that my skin is better if I limit my green tea (I think this has to do with caffeine and stress).

Dinner: Usually between 6:30pm and 8pm
1 cup fruit smoothie (from morning)
I may have walnut butter on rice crackers or some other snack while I cook.
Some sort of protein (eg: bison burger, chicken breast, all beef sausage)
Another veggie (eg: celery, sweet potato fries, carrot juice)

If I'm still hungry I will have some sort of snack at the end of dinner.  I prefer not to snack between meals - I would rather eat a large meal and then focus on my day.  If I snack too much I feel sluggish and a bit bloated.

If I am going to get home too late to make and eat a proper dinner I will bring lots more food for lunch and just have an egg as my protein at dinner instead.

For snacks, I often make my own chocolate from butter, cocoa, tahini, veggie glyc, walnuts, and flax meal.  I will also sometimes make compliant brownies or cookies (also heavily featuring nut flours).  I love this stuff and will tend to eat more butter and nut servings that I should this way!  

It seems pretty common for Os to overeat nuts and I also wonder if craving these and things I make with butter or ghee means I need more fat.  Most meat I eat is organic and extremely lean, so I'm not getting as much as other Os maybe?  Bison burgers are only 7g total fat each (and pretty big!).

Sounds great!  Thanks for the information.  I had an idea about the nuts that maybe we were craving/needing the magnesium that they have in them.  Seems like I read that somewhere.  I also eat very lean bison meat as well.

So, you don't snack in between meals?  Interesting.  And you exercise before breakfast right?  Again, thanks for the post.  Could I have your chocolate recipe?

I can't exercise before breakfast while in school, but when I am on vacation or on weekends I do.  I'm not exactly sure how this semester's routine will look (hard to find time to exercise and sometimes it has to be shuffled around), but I think this is how it will go:

Tuesday: Finish school at 5pm (ate lunch at least 3 hours prior), strength training for legs/low back/abs followed by running and elliptical
Wednesday: Finish school at 12pm (ate breakfast at least 4 hours prior, will eat lunch after gym), strength training for arms/back/abs followed by running and elliptical
Sat or Sun: Full body circuit (1 set per machine only) followed by running and elliptical

I may not be able to do 3 days per week, so if I move down to 2 I will omit the full body circuit day.  I may also try to swim in the AM before school one day per week.  I also do about 1 yoga class per week and also a very low impact dance class.

I'm also not into gym exercise every day.  When I am at the gym I am focused and I keep my HR in target the entire time I'm there (about 1.5 hours).  If I exercised this hard everyday I would be too tired and stressed!  Then again, I have a more active life than most office workers (walking, biking as transportation) and even at school we do some activity (massage, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, labs, etc) so we aren't sitting ALL day.

A usual day:

Get up, go for a 15km bike ride. On return, do cycle of exercises that moves all the joints in the body ... allegedly

Breakfast: 3 eggs with a cup of parsley; a shake made up of pineapple juice, prunes, ground flax seed & larch.
Supplements: fish oil, kelp, multi-b plus c, alpha lipoic acid, zinc, calcium & magnesium.

If I'm hungry between meals, I snack on walnuts, pepitas, bananas & apples.

Lunch: usually leftovers from the previous night's dinner; as it's summer here, usually steak and salad made up of kale, broccoli, red peppers, zucchini, herbs, etc. with an olive oil & lemon juice dressing.

When I get home from work, I do a short routine of weights.

Dinner: as above

I may snack after dinner: some dark chocolate or now, as it's summer, cherries, blueberries, plums, apricots, watermelon.

And all during the day, I drink copious amounts of water & green tea.

I wake up very early before dawn every day of the week.

Typical Days:

Pre-Breakfast: small warm water with half of a squeezed lemon.

Breakfast: 3 tsp. dry sprouted buckwheat groats or amaranth, a small handful of some type of nut or seed (usually it's organic walnuts, pumpkin seeds, or milled golden flaxseeds), 1/4 cup soymilk, 1 serving of fruit.  

2 Hours after Breafast:  I drink 1 cup of green tea, and I usually drink all of my water for the day after breakfast and in between or during my workout--it's usually 7-8 cups.  I usually do not drink any more water in the day after this.

I exercise every day alternating: yoga, strength training with flexbands and free weights, aerobics, and sometimes pilates.  My strength training and cardio days coincide together.

Snack: Dry fruit or 1 fresh fruit (it's usually always a beneficial fruit--I rarely purchase neutral fruits)

Lunch: Protein source (tempeh, miso, tofu, sprouted lentils, green beans, edamme, or some of type of legume), a salad with raw vegetables.

Snack:  Dry fruit of fresh fruit (I usually eat my fruits separate from my main meals, with the exception of breakfast.

Dinner: 1 slice manna bread with a salad and vegetables.

Most of my food consumption throughout the day consists of vegetables which works well for my body.  My favorites veggies include: escarole, dandelion greens, broccoli, raw carrots, leeks, raw celery, romaine lettuce, onions, fresh gingerroot, spinach, fresh garlic.

Daily supplements: 2 tsp. Harmonia, 1 tsp. ARA6, 1 Deflect with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I thought I had to have some Ezekiel bread with breakfast for the first 6-9 months. No one told me to eat any differently.

That was during a period of time after the old message board was closed and before this forum started. Thankfully Heidi finally started up her column and told me to "think dinner for breakfast". I haven't looked back since, although I have refined it.

I now enjoy no cravings for sweets or grains all day long. It isn't until late afternoon or evening that I get a mild urge for a few carbs.

Wow!  This is awesome learning everyone's routines.  Vandelam, 15mile bike ride each morning?  That is amazing!  I like your eating style too.  You know that apples are an avoid for O's though, right?

It's hard to believe it is summer in Australia, when it is winter here in Kentucky.  So far the posts have been great!  Thanks and keep them coming.  I am getting great ideas.  I actually had a smoothie for breakfast this morning a couple hours before aerobics and I felt really good and MUCH lighter on my feet, more energetic too.  I had a good sized lunch with salmon, half an avocado (son at the other half!), salad with a little olive oil and some leftover lentils from last night with a bit of kelp in the mix.  I feel great and no cravings either.  

Don, a detailed report of your eating and exercise routine, please?

Not exactly, that was 15kms, which is around 9 miles
The ride is great for several reasons. I live in a semi-rural area. The bike track goes through vineyards following the the now disused railway line between my town & the next. There is always lots of flora & fauna depending on the time of year. I get to see the sun rise over rolling hills to the east; I can see glimpses of the sea to the west. This morning I even saw a kangaroo bounding just ahead of me along the path. That's pretty rare, though.
So this ride not only satisifies my aerobic needs but clears my head so that sitting in front of a computer all day for work becomes bearable ... just.

I use parsley because it is a beneficial green and it grows in my garden. I get eggs from my chickens, put them in the pan, pick the parsley fresh from the plant, and that's breakfast. Too easy.

I usually eat beef and non-starchy beneficial veggies for breakfast and lunch; and snack on raw carrots and broccoli between meals.  Sometimes I make a big spinach salad.  For dinner I usually eat some roasted pumpkin seeds and sometimes a sweet potato or rice pasta.  Sometimes I eat kamut bread, or rice cakes w/almond butter.  I do plan on phasing out the grains and maybe the almond butter.  Nothin too quick though.  This gradual approach I've been able to stick with.  Besides eliminating grains I plan on including some beneficial fish in my diet.  I'm not a big fan of frozen fish so far; canned sardines are okay.  Fresh beneficial fish I know is the healthiest and tastes the best, but it's a matter of going to the store more, getting used to cooking it, and getting used to spending the extra dollars.  

I want to point out that I mainly eat carbs in the late afternoon or evening which I find keeps me more awake during the day (and free of carb cravings) and helps me wind down and sleep at night.  Other than that I drink 1-3 cups of green tea, rarely having a cup after 2 or 3p so that the caffeine doesn't affect my sleep.  I drink liquids (water or tea) 30 min. before meals or at least 2 hours after so that I don't wash away digestive enzymes.

Snack - around 6pm - teaspoon of almond butter, handful of nuts, sundried tomato, pineapple pieces (not all at once, just one at a time on different days).

Walk with the dogs, usually for 30mins to an hour.
Half a glass of water with iodine.

When i wake up i drink a glass of lemon water that i make.

i wait about 30 min-2 hours and then eat a huge brunch which consists of beef and broccoli w/olive oil and Curry/Turmeric/Thyme depending on what i feel like. Curry my favorite

that is what i do about 80% of the time in the morning. the other 20% of the days i eat prunes/figs for breakfast and only wait about 15-30 min. after the lemon water.

I don't have a big lunch...snacks mostly. Fruit. Recently for snacks i used Pecans/Pumpkin Seeds/Prunes/Dulse. Dulse is a good snack for me. That reminds me i need more Dulse

For Dinner it is either beef again or Sardines/Salmon/Cod. I either leave it like that or if i have an early dinner then i add a vegetable like Spinach/Broccoli/Romaine.

Yesterday was a light day for me. I ate Prunes in the morning for breakfast. Avocado and Red Pepper for lunch. Then for dinner i ate Sardines.

So how do you eat sardines?  I love fresh fish, and I even cook with anchovies (haven't thought to check their compliance status - will do that), but am afraid of sardines.  I've gone as far as buying them & even opening the can, but couldn't bring myself to try them.

I add them inside my salad, in chunks.

you can even make a spread for rice cakes or any compliant cracker.

I never ate them before the BTD really either, but now I love them.  You can buy the skinless boneless to start out with if you want.  They are a little less scary, but don't have the good omega 3's really because there is no skin and bones.  We like the ones in olive oil better, but the water kind I think are better for you.  Anyway, we eat them right out of the can.  Just put them on the plate.  If you like hot sauce or whatever like that, you could add that on, or wrap them in lettuce for a sandwich.  If you do grains, you can eat them with rice crackers.  

Crown Prince is a good brand, but they are high in saturated fat, so I don't eat them every day, just a couple times a week or so now.  My little boys love them and eat them right up.  It freaks other people out when they see them do it!

Here is a partial, but typical morning for me;;;
Celestial Seasonings Perfectly Pear White Tea w/a touch of dark brown sugar or none, beef, rare as I can make it, and fistfuls of raw parsley & maybe spinach. I feel like a million bucks, wide-eyed & bushy-tailed. Get hungry again maybe 3 hours later. At work, dark salad greens, purple onions, misc. other raw vegs, plain burger w/the bun thrown away, then sprinkle olive oil & red pepper flakes on the lot. My coworkers think I'm crazy, but I never get the afternoon sleepies anymore since BTD. They go around going I need coffee or sweets for energy to get me thru the rest of the day, & I just eat more leftover red meat. I'm a happy little cavewoman.
For dinner, red meat, salmon or liver or ??? w/ sweet potato, red onions, not enough greens.
There's a lot of variation, but that's the basics.
I try to keep the stinkier fish for home-eating where I can revel in sardines or whatever without upsetting my fussy judgemental lunchmates.
As long as I'm getting red meat at least twice a day, I'm a happy girl and feel good.
(That doesn't count being first in line if someone brings in birthday cake or pie to the office, cheating with chocolate & occasional coffee, but my health is still miles ahead of pre-BTD.)
