Diet Day 12 - - - - Fish on Fridays?

Checking out a tin of Makerel in tomato sauce, I noticed that half a can is 120 ish calories and most people focus on the number on the front of the can.

But turn to the back of the tin and see calories per 100g ( I think that's a better way)

Tesco own brand 100g = 195 kcals
Princes brand = 100g = 200 kcals

most cans are 125g in weight and that's ok but how many people eat only half a wee tiny can?

So tin of fish = 200 kcals x 1.25 = 250 calories in a wee tin!

I think not.

Comparison: Tesco Tin of Sardines in brine.

Half a can = 72 cals. 100g = 172 cals and a whole tin = 206 cals (tin size is 120g) however it's about 50 cals less - ditch the tomato sauce or switch the tomato sauce...

Did you know that you could have half a tin of Light Choices Beans (Tesco) for 150 cals instead!
Nice one - I think I will be switching to beans.


Breakfast: Today : Weetabix (209)

Lunch: Macaroni & Cheese (169), Toast (108) Cheese (55) = 332

Square Choc Biscuit = 156

Evening: Stuffed Garlic Chicken and Spicy Beans (Home Made) = 500
Muller Rice = 196

Toast n Cheese = 179


Muesli = 375 + Milk (75) = 450

Alc-Free beer = 260

Total = 2282
