What would you do if you were just about to get on a bus and a person said "scrimp"?

Would it encourage, discourage, enlighten, upset?

And another tact,. if ever you treat yourself to a take away,

Do you put the almost empty container in the recycling, do you rinse it out? Or put it into your freezer?

All of those lovely spices.

Then, why not defrost it and add to a reduce salt stockcube and even some black bean sauce maybe with some sliced peppers, chicken if a meat eater or even sliced strips of beef.

I added reduced fat bakedbeans to mine and some black bean sauce and ground black pepper.

Some frozen peas would have clinched it 'if not' adding baked beans xxxxx

If a meat eater, it would have been great to have added some cooked chicken to th black bean sauce especilally with some frozen peas too.

Consider your portion sizes and too learn to moderate if drinking alcohol.

Some have small kitchens and some no kitchen in some places, don't let it become a hurdle, yes find a piece of clean board,  you can always tuck it behind a cupboard after, use a bottle if you haven't got a rolling pin.

A few potatoes, half a mackerel fillet, some basil puree and a stock cube, 5 sprigs of kale as optional.

The pastry was packet bought and you don't need to put an egg in it or on it or wash it with milk.

Save them for another meal or drink.

Appreciate moderation, absolutely no more than one or two in two days of any one week if watching weight and if no other food at all on that one or two days apart from a couple of apples or a oranges or two pears. Shortcrust pastry pack made 4 and one biscuit.

Just what would you put in yours, can you roll your pastry thinner and do 5 or 6?

But how thin? Would you want to?

Cover with foil on plate when cool/ keep in refrigerator.

Why not post your creations on the www..Nostarving.com site too, see how good you can get.

Show them!

Ok we know that usually when in wintertime our bodies naturally focus more on survival than on aesthetics in the main. We also know that we tend by default often to change our eating habits in winter or soon before but then we get to that bit where we have to actually adjust the settings on our indoor refrigerators because the cold has passed and the weather is actually warming up and we need to make sure that our food is at lesser risk of contamination, yes we even put some food such as dairy produce etc in parts of the refrigerator where it might be cooler (depending on what type of refrigeration you have). Similarly our bodies in some cases can for a variety of reasons want to find ways of lessening the risk of gaining even more weight when it is not necessary required. Factors such as health issues or depression and not actually alerting your mind in some cases can possibly too play even a far greater and are potentially kind of quite complex.

Your natural body clock is one thing but our habits are sometimes seasonal and inherent as in that we have developed a way of telling our bodies that some things such as eating more or different things at such times as required is a basic and integral survival instinct.

To imply that at night time when weather may be cooler in some places that somehow we maybe burn off more calories or use less i think is potentially contentious and could depend on your weight, activity and the type of food you eat. Some say that the best meal of the day is breakfast, i met a chef recently who worked at a kebab shop but trained in a french restaurant who did actually suggest that this is a consideration. Certainly if you examine the french dietary structure they seem to eat more sweeter food at breakfast time than for example brits and If you look at twins where one is larger than the other you may find that the slimmer of the two eats a greater density of fibrous foods.

We also know that it is virtually unthinkable for french people to be likely to go out on a drink session straight from work without eating beforehand or enjoying a meal with with alcohol as a complement.

Evening mealtimes in places such as France and Spain can be different by up to two hours with the French often commencing an evening meal earlier but then again the weather factor in both France and Spain can differ considerably too and in Spain they may have had a siesta during the day when the sun is at it's hottest and for example be having tapas meal with any alcohol consumption in the evening.

A recommendation therefore could be that you weigh yourself today and obviously really attempt to incorporate more activity in to your daily routine, start off with a more fibrous meal and not necessarily huge also incorporate more fiber during day. A pear skin for example is fibrous, and they are great helping with digestion.

Eat smaller meals (a few during the day) though with your breakfast being more substantial than your evening meal, and attempt to bring your evening meal forward by a couple of hours certainly if you eat into later evenings and try to eat less then with a small substantial but light meal maybe very early evening or 4pm if at home or during that tea break. If thinking of drinking alcohol, think carefully and try eat well before or with, rather than after. Don't just rush to the pub and consume copious amounts of alcohol which then will often turn to sugar anyway and try to compensate with binges of food you might not usually eat, or maybe you would?

If you do, don't stress over it. Don't become unhappy. Think, change your habits.

Think really carefully. Enjoy. Learn to enjoy enjoyment and in others responsibly.

Eat evening meal earlier/ before or if drinking alcohol

consider (where possible) with.

Try to incorporate exersize.

Try read this again and think really carefully, yes because you know you can!

If you deal with it, try weighing yourself in a month too/again but there is no hurry!

There can be many reasons why we tend to eat more or different types of food in winter, when its cold, we get the draught excluders out, the heating tends to be switched on or we at least try to keep our legs and feet warm if sitting on the couch. Hot drink? Of course and we sometimes think of the businesses and those we know and hope that they are doing well too. Maybe its an natural instinct too that we tend to help each other and somehow together we hope to get through winters especially harsh ones.

As for myself, i have had cats for some years and i have always been worried about winters or maybe i sensed their inherent animal instinct fears of the cold and its perils. Most pets grow a winter coat and so naturally as instinctive we might want to throw more clothes on or feel somehow that we need to eat that little bit more as an extra layer of support somehow against the cold and it's very real dangers, especially if in an at risk group for example or if vulnerable. We are inherently aware of the risk element of winter and however we dress it, if we don't be careful we will possibly be open to colds and flus and shivers if we do not. I now have no cats even though very very careful.

Often many and sometimes for other reasons such as economics will avoid the cold, we know that the heating bills increase and our winter wardrobe inevitably gets an airing even if we brave the cold to call in to see how staff are at our local eateries and establishments, some also consolidate efforts and focus on matters closer to home.

Many are or can be less active than usual but does that mean we compensate with overeating or is it about having fun and trying to do more at a time when we may not be feeling like a jog around the park. Too, you may have lost , i lost a cat last year and my other cat this year and my father passed away in November so it can too be a time of reflection, it isn't nice attending your fathers funeral on 19 December or indeed any other day. It would do no harm to try to do the odd bit of exersize and not to create an excuse not to, however confident you may believe yourself to be. I'm sure you are confident too but you, even if a naturist for example are not likely to be sitting there with nothing on presently and no heating on.

Have you ever wondered whether staying that extra bit active instead of sluggish might actually improve your mental and physical agility?

Try to walk to the shops instead of taking the car if you have one and it's not too far.

It also uses more calories to keep warm and do things in the colder weather and radiators can make us dehydrated, it is good to place a container of cold water on top of a radiator to help with evaporation but be careful if you have children or pets.

I have had cramping in my calves recently but there are other signs too of dehydration such as even the colour of your urine, darker urine colour than normal can be a sign of dehydration but too if you have been changing your drinking regime anyway. Some might prefer to be drinking caffeine fre drinks for velocity and not even realise that they have been drinking way less coffee than they usually might have otherwise done.

I found that i tried to eat more bake your own bread this winter but i cut out many of the other foods that i might usually like to try, to seethe overall affet and to see how i might deal with any issues it presented but that there are the many great soups and foodstuffs on our websites and others which will have helped, moderation is still a key factor but so is your own ability to control your habit or structure.

Be sure to add salad and greenstuff, don't keep it all as somewhat or possibly considered as fuzzy total comfort food. Make changes and think very positively. I have enjoyed even bread with lettuce and a sliced tomato with fruit tea infusion. Think of hobbies and interests too which may not involve cooking or food or general slumberness. Daffodils and other bulbs won't germinate unless the temperture goes low enough, i hope it did and that your winter was very nice and that you may plan your spring positively.

Is there evidence to suggest that those who did rigorous exersize in sometimes younger days were able to maintain health or statistically did many blow up like a balloon if they stopped? Can such be 'accurately maintained' and in too a practice of cost effectiveness in such longevity?
