    Hi
    does anyone have any tips which they use if they want to boost their weight loss for a particular week. I usually loose between half and 1 lb a week but I want to loose 1.5 so I hit my stone mark. I already eat loads of SF foods and have cut my syns down to 5 like my SW Consultant suggested. Any tips greatly appreciated.
    By the way you guys on here are brilliant.

    I never think cutting syns down is a good way to go, but obviously your consultant knows better than I do! Have you tried upping your exercise a bit? Make sure you're eatting enough, I know it sounds silly but eatting less can actually hinder weight loss rather than help, fill up on your free foods :)

    Upping my exercise Squiddie . . . starting might be a good idea lol. My Con. looked at my food diary and felt that syns was the only place I had room to manoeuvre. xx

    More fluids. It really does help. Go for sh*t loads of water rather than fizzy drinks and watch the fat flush away!

    Honestly.

    Good luck hun :D

    Make sure you do. If you are working though, watch out for....."Are you.....? Is there something you want to tell us.....? Had any cravings lately.....?"

    Hey, I am trying lose a bit more this week too. I am going by my food diary from my 1st week on SW as I ate a lot more fresh fruit/veg and ate a big variety of things. I drink 4-5l water a day, and go on my cross trainer 30mins daily, + walking if I can. Good luck with your next WI!!!

    Lots of fish meals! (if you like it) Change all your HEB's if you always have cereal/ bread use something else. I used to find red days worked for me, and don't eat spicy food or gammon the day before weigh in.
