Eggs chips and beans………………healthy?
It’s the kind of stuff they feed soldiers in training and people working on oil rigs, in abundance (and you want to see the type of stuff they eat on artic expeditions). Food is only one part of the ‘healthy’ equation, activity is pretty key too.
It may no longer hold true, but I’m pretty sure that I was once told that a calorie burnt is a calorie burnt – and it didn’t really matter where it came from.Posted 6 years ago
quality of oil for the chips is important, shite oil can have loads of detergents in it. quantity of oil in the chips will be high but then you may not have had any oil in the last fourteen years so..
beans! minefield mate, who made em you? or hiendaddymorisson corp? if it was the latter you are looking at a fair loads of sugar and salt.
an egg is an egg can be oily as fek if you make a hash of it but other than that its an egg. they make me fart.

I don’t think any food is bad. It’s having a limited diet that’s bad for you. Aslong as you have a varied diet, well I don’t think it should matter too much. I’m no expert mind.Posted 6 years agoPJayMember
Like seosamh77 says, variety is good. Egg chips and beans isn’t great on the micronutrient front (vitamins & minerals etc.) so if you lived off that day-in and day-out it wouldn’t be at all healthy. As part of a varied diet I can’t see it being a problem (unless perhaps you have some sort of underlying medical condition like high chloresterol or something).Posted 6 years agoJunkyardMember
Beans are pulses and potatoes don’t count towards your five a day…
Pulses and beans
Three heaped tablespoons of baked beans, haricot beans, kidney beans, cannellini beans, butter beans or chickpeas. However much you eat, beans and pulses count as a maximum of one portion a day.

i thought baked beans did not count tbh but checked I knew pulses did
Ton probably ok as treat but not if you eat it for every teaPosted 6 years agocakefacesmallblockSubscriber
Ham, eggs, chips and beans for tea for us tonight. Really looking forward to it. I’ve made it to 51, been 74 kgs and 32″ waist for about 20 years now ( managed to get closer to 30″ when training hard in spring and summer for MM). All the stuff I do these days, Mtb, hillwalking and a little surfing, is mostly for fun. I have always eaten a very balanced diet, enjoy a few beers and even the odd smoke still.Posted 6 years ago
Have often wondered how fit / healthy I’d be if I trained hard, ate like an athlete and never indulged. But, then I wonder just how miserable I might be too !
Oh yeah … don’t see a problem with most methods of cooking potato, but always cook with the “healthiest” forms of oil we can.metalheartSubscriber
Caught a part of a radio programme the other week where it was stated that all calories are not equal.
Fat requires a tri-glyceral (sp) to form in the cells and so needs sugar. So carbs are bad for this… Or something.
It was ripping the piss out of the calorie system and the in <= work done thing losing weight as being waaaaaay too simplistic and therefore obviously false.
Unfortunately I didn’t hear it all or catch the conclusion.
But what I did was very interesting… 😀Posted 6 years ago
