    My last diet! LET'S DO THIS!!!

    Hey guys!
    So my name's Lucie and I am THE queen of diets... weight watchers, unislim, cambridge... I have tried them all!! And they work for a while until I fall back into cycling of bingeing and making myself fatter again! I read an article recently on the Harcombe diet and Zoe's personal experience was literally me down to a T and I am so so motivated! I've ordered the book online and it is coming some day this week but I am going to start tomorrow myself because I can't wait any longer! I'll weigh myself in the morning to get my current weight and will let ye know! How is everybody getting on today?? Oh and I have a question.. If I choose to have 35g of porridge and 25g of rice in the same day is that allowed to half each and split them up?? Or do I have to eat my portion of carbs together?
    Love,
    Lucie x

    Hi Lucie - welcome to harcombe i'm loving the plan, still relatively new to it but finding it easy enough so far. You can split your carbs as far as i'm aware but it's only 50g per day.... if you like porridge you can do things like cauliflower rice instead for your evening meal. Although i'm finding that carb meals make me hungrier much quicker, fat meals definitely carry you through better! Enjoy it and don't be afraid to embrace it - the opposite is drummed into us for so long but i really enjoyed my chicken, with skin!! the other day lol x

    Thank you!!! Ok so I ended up only starting today in the end! So far I have had 2 bacon, 1 egg and half a tomato for breakfast! And I have made vegetable soup so I'm going to have that with some chicken for lunch I think... I was really struggling for the last couple of hours, I keep wanting to eat and telling myself I can start again tomorrow but I know it will never come if I keep thinking like that! Still waiting for my bloody book I was really hoping it would come this morning, fingers crossed for tomorrow! By the way do you know the way you can't have carbs and fats together, do chicken and fish count for fatty foods? cos they are low fat.. but from what I've read online anything 'with a face' can't be eaten with carbs?x

    But you can eat, if you are hungry, just only the right things. Don't let yourself be hungry, that's why we fail. Tomorrow will never come though. Go and get some veg sticks to munch on or something similar, i promise the hunger will subside it's just the candida and things trying to get you to eat.

    Yes, anything that had a face (animal) or came from a face (dairy) is fats. it's because both carbs and fats have protein so it's just to keep the split simple. It#s explained in the book and there is a print off you can get from the website. Is your book there yet? x

    Just had my dinner... a chicken fillet, cauliflower and butternut squash chips which were actually amazing! just a bit of olive oil and put them in the oven feeling much more motivated now.. my start weight was 14'12 so i'm gonna try my very hardest not to weigh myself until Monday when I will start phase 2!! i have been going through short ten minute phases where I literally want to shove cake in my mouth but after a few minutes they always pass! Hope everyone is having a good day x

    That's just the cravings then. Shows you have a sweet tooth and need to avoid it. Sadly so do I lol. My day has been good had rice cereal and skimmed milk for breakfast. Ham stirfry for lunch and just waiting for my butternut squash to roast which I'm having with bolognaise and some cheese. Mmmmm x fingers crossed your book gets here tomorrow then. Have you weighed etc? What day is it today for you d

    Yes sugar is unfortunately my downfall! I wish I was one of those people that just craved savory stuff but oh well! you seem to be doing great i can't wait for phase 2, i have no idea about it yet but when the book comes i'm sure it'll all make sense! have you been exercising?x

    No i don't have time to exercise, not easily anyway and i just find that gives added pressure again. The book will explain that exercise isn't necessary for weight loss - as the calorie thoery doens't apply we don't need to get calories out - but obv she recommends it for the health benefits and for toning. TBH i find phase 1 is enough - p2 is nice, sometimes i add a bit of cheese but that's really it. Am still avoiding fruit as i don't want it setting off my sweet tooth - i too am a total sugar addict. But i am enjoying it still and finding it quite liberating, just tucking into my homemade soup followed by a nice ham salad. yum x

    Just had a really late lunch as i had breakfast late too.. I have been pushing my meals on as far as possible because it is always during the evening that I want something to eat, so when i have my mail meal late i'm usually full until bedtime! I had the same lunch as yesterday, brown rice with lots of veg and chopped tomatoes and it is sooo filling!
    So I booked a holiday today for the first week in June to Tenerife! I worked out that if I lose 3 lbs a week until then I will be just under 11 stone which is my dream weight... I am 5'8 so a healthy weight for me is 11 stone 12 pounds but I would love to get into the tens! but even if I got around 11 or 11 and a half by then I would be feeling a hell of a lot more confident than I am now! also i'm trying not to obsess about my weight either, more about how i feel. I'm trying to think of it as a lifestlyle change rather than a diet and I know if I start weighing myself everyday I will just get obsessed! Although I think I will in the morning though just to see the result after 3 days! Hope everybody is having a good day! Lots of loveeee xx
