    Your food looks good, but just want to check:

    low low spead cheese 30g... I'm not sure this is a HEX? I don't eat it though, so I could be wrong. (just checked, and it is!)
    2 slice wholemeal (400g)... is this a small loaf, as in the slices are small, and not just a half-sized pan
    Are you weighing/measuring your porridge, and cheese?


    For your dinners, is Superfree making up 1/3 of your meal?
    -
    beef curry & rice with side green beans... when you look at your plate are the onions, peppers and beans making up a third of the portion? Onion doesn't take up much space, so you'd need a good bit of peppers and beans

    -
    chicken in spices and small passata - warburton wrap 5 syns... 2 spoonfuls savoury rice - 30g low low cheese ( other half hex a) sweetcorn and a side salad
    Sweetcorn isn't superfree, so was your side salad a third of the meal?

    And are you drinking enough water? When you say 3 glasses of juice, is that a 250ml glass, pint glass etc? Your tea and coffee count too, but I find I drink a lot more water now, about 2-3 litres a day on top of my coffee.

    Hopefully some of the above helps!

    How much water do you drink? You could try increasing your superfree foods and including more ss foods, try eating more syns too xx

    Also, you might find your losses are in a cycle...e.g. 2 good weeks, a STS, a gain. After a couple of months you'd see a pattern. And if you average out at a half stone a month, you'll be at target this year.

    I think you could pack some more veg into your meals. I find this is the easiest way to do the 1/3 superfree.

    Thanks all

    yeah i think superfree foods will need to be upped

    small slices of bread, seems to thin you can blow through it lol

    no water, juice in a smallish glass ( a tall one you get with spirit in a pub )
    will try drink more

    if im honest its probably not 1/3 full of my plate

    im just getting annoyed that im not gorging on crap, eating healthy and not losing

    The superfree might be the thing then, cos if that's not a third of your meal you could be eating quite a hefty portion of carb/meat. I used to do that, didn't cop for ages the difference between free and superfree... had the "Free" blinkers on and ate pasta round me. No wonder I wasn't losing, and ended up quitting.

    This time (since last Aug), I try to make all my dinners veggie based, with a small (if any) portion of pasta/rice. It's hard though, I love my carbs!

    yes thats me!
    i have a plate full of rice or pasta with either mince tomato sauce or chicken beef curry all cooked in stock no jars etc
    so maybe its the volume im eating of "free" foods that is actually causing me the harm

    will see what the scales say tonight!

    thank you

    Some great points here... personally I'd do the following;

    - Have 1/3 superfree in meals (i.e. not having an extra plate of fruit afterwards to make up for lack of superfree - as overall you're eating more!)
    - Drink at least 2L of water a day
    - Keep an eye on portion size / eating slower and making sure to stop eating when full
    - Weigh ALL HExA's and HExB's - no guesstimating!
    - Double check the syns of everything on the app or online (cheeky syns can appear in chicken tikka, some savoury rice brands/flavours etc)
    - Introducing some body magic!
    - Eat a little cleaner by trying to swap naughty syns for healthy syns or processed HEx's for more natural HEx's... i.e. using some syns on some nuts or flaxseed in porridge, maybe having almonds instead of WM bread as a HExB etc.



    Best of luck! Let us know how you get on xx

    3lbs off is a fantastic amount, more than the recommended

    Hiya - if you're struggling with the 1/3 superfree you could always pretend you're in a restaurant and have a starter of some superfree soup. That way you know you've boosted it before you even start your other food!
