I take 2-3 hours each night cooking my food for the next day. I'm only on 700 cals a day. I'm so tired doing it all. How long do any of you take?
I dont cook...I cant remember the last time I ate a cooked meal. I just nibble on the stuff thats in the fridge, like hummus, fruit, etc. But hey if it works for you, nothing wrong with thatI don't care if it hurts, I want to have control. I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul.

Personally, I cook every night but it's for my husband and I don't eat any of it. It's definitely so tedious because it takes anywhere from three or four hours from prep time, cook time, then clean up, and I'm not benefiting from it nutritionally anyway. I have a list of 'safe' foods I eat from that generally don't require much preparation aside from weighing/measuring out.
I've made you so happy and so sad,
But which should I be more sorry for?
If anything, I have only one cook meal a day. Everything else is just snacks and things I can quickly grab and eat. The one thing I do make is an omelette, which really isn't an omelette because it's probably 70% green vegetables and 30% eggs. That takes FOREVER to cook because I don't use oil and I have to stand there stirring, and cutting the vegetables, e.t.c Really annoying at times, so sometimes I don't bother making it.An aspiring doctor.

I dont cook. I havent had an actual meal in so long. Its always tiny snacks maybe 2 or 3 times a day(each snack under 100 calories). I just dont have the energy to cook.
I spend about 1h30mins/day cooking. I do enjoy it.
TBH, I still obsess too much weighing food and counting calories, but I think that switching from premade stuff to actual food prepared by me is helping quite a bit to establish a healthier relation with food.
