    What is your daily calorie target?

    What a coincidence; I was just reading about you in my copy of The Longevity Diet. I'm fascinated that you're so disciplined with your meal plan. As for T2D my bloodwork last week showed no indications of T2D 🙂 Now I just need to remain diligent so the problem doesn't reoccur.

    Thank you everyone for your replies. The advice from those of you with more experience in this is much appreciated!

    Thanks Todd. I thought I would be eating enough food with what I had planned but I guess not. I'll have to get back to the menu plan and add some healthy calories somewhere.

    Tomato eggs

    This recipe is so delicious we make it every weekend. It's based on a Middle Eastern dish but I leave out the stronger spices and onion so as not to overpower the flavour from the rosemary. 1. lightly fry a minced clove of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes.2. Add a can of plum or diced tomatoes and add 1 - 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary.3. Simmer for about 20 minutes, breaking the tomatoes up to make the sauce creamier 4. When the sauce has thickened add about 2 tablespoons of shredded parmesan cheese5. Make dimples in the sauce and add eggs.6. Turn up heat and cover until eggs are poached. 7. Serve with additional parmesan sprinkled on top. I've found Marzano Tomatoes are best in this dish. It makes 2 servings of about 270 calories each.
  5. Hi everyone. I'm currently on the VLCD recommended by the NHS to mitigate T2D. When that is complete in 8 weeks I want to go to CR to carry on with a healthy diet. My question is for people here who are practicing CR - what is your calorie target per day? When I look at meal plans for foods I like it seems I'd be eating 1,200 to 1,300 calories per day. Is this reasonable? By way of background I'm 62 and 6' tall. Thanks in advance for any feedback 😊
