hi all, new to dieting in general, i have dieted before and had a similar problem as below, any help appreciated!
i was 18.6 stone at new year and started "eating right" (no takeaways, processed foods etc) and slowly started losing weight, i was pretty pleased with myself so started a sensible diet i can live with week to week, not staving myself or cutting out essentials.
this is roughly what im at:
homemade fruit juice 3 mixed fruits juiced
2 slice of nimble brown bread with coconut oil as replacement marg.
lunch: homemade veg soup 500ml portions, all whole veg mix different every week, garlic, herbs etc all juiced, mixed with pulp and blended together. 2 chicken stock cubes is the only non veg (added to a weeks worth)and once a week i have the likes of poached egg on toast etc.
the idea of the soup was a detox at the beginning by drinking the juice only for lunch but its rotten and i made soup, tasty soup lol
dinners are varied but like fish and salad, lean steak or other lean meat and steamed veg etc but all sensible portions.
snacks: to keep a healthy fat intake i have maybe 1 or 2 rivita, crisprolls or hovis digestives with cheese triangles, cottage or cheddar cheese but dont overdo it! and these snack stop that starving panicking feeling.
ive never eaten so healthy or so little and in 3/4 weeks went from 18.6 stone to 17.10, although im still the same "size" waist etc ive noticed a massive difference in my belly area and clothes fit better or loose.
the problem is, for over a week now ive lost nothing! thankfuly not put weight on but completely stopped losing?
i cant eat any less and if i cut out the snacks ill get little fat in my diet and ill feel really hungry, ive tried fruit as a replacement snack but im "borderline diabetic" and the 3 i have for breakfast is enough.
any ideas? am i doing something wrong?
