    am i doing it right ?

    hi my weight loss has really slowed down the last few weeks, if someone can just check my diary to see if im on the right track I would be so grateful
    so average day for me is breakfast will be one of these, porridge, one slice of toast with a slight bit of butter on or a breakfast bar like alpen etc. then lunch will be a salad or some soup with 2 slices of bread, shape yoghurt and weightwatchers crisps. dinner will usually be a weightwatchers recipe or homemade spag bol, currys, stews etc. snacks will be anything like these, alpen bar, banana, apple, shape yoghurts or a few crackers. then I walk the kids to school which is 15 mins each way that's twice a day, and so far im doing a mininum of 30 mins on my exercise bike or cross trainer every day, does all this sound ok ?? xx

    Your food diary sounds great! Maybe try cutting down on the alpen bars 'cause they contain a lot of sugar and carbs, just cutting these out and opting for fruit instead could help. Maybe change your bread to wholemeal on a couple days? Add in some lean protein like chicken and fish is great too. I'm no expert by all means but this is something I'm going to try to do next week and see if this helps. I think if you are eating a lot of carbohydrates its harder even though the calories are the same just because it takes your body longer to burn off carbs I think. I'm still learning

    But overall your diet and exercise sounds great

    weeks 5 and 6 - 4lbs lost - no class week 5 as it was Holiday Week
    week 7 ... 2lbs lost. I am so proud to have been Slimmer of the Week for the last 7 weeks.

    I know this is an oldish post but I want to make sure any newbies reading this don't take the above quote as truth.

    The body does not find it more difficult to burn any kind of food more than the other in a way that makes a significant difference to your metabolism or weight loss. Besides, if the body found it more difficult to use up 200 cals chocolate vs 200 cals of protein then you'd eat the chocolate because it would use up more energy burning it off!

    A calorie = a calorie. Unless you have a medical condition that makes it not so.

    The only time you need to worry about the types of food your eating, carbs/protein/fat etc... Is when you're looking at your body composition and doing some decent work with weights.

    If your trying to lose weight, just focus on the calorie intake.

    I second this, as I was going to make the same point - a calorie is a calorie, no matter what type of food. 200 calories of broccoli would take just as long to burn off as 200 calories of chocolate. A decent combination of all food types is what's likely to work best, as it will keep you interested. No way would I give up chocolate (or cake, or anything else I like!) and I've lost 145lbs, lol. xx

    What I can say that In my experience. A calorie = a calorie. Energy storage will only occur in a calorie surplus.

    The types of food I eat have no bearing on my weight loss. I've lost the most weight in the weeks that I've had a mcdonalds breakfast every morning. My 5 stones have been lost eating junk food and chocolate. Only looking at the calorie goal.

    Tracy's 10 stone were lost in the same way.

    I repeat. Unless you are training particularly hard or are working on body composition then the only number that matters for weight loss is the calorie goal.
