Getting very excited for next week even though it doesnt start til Tuesday!

Popped into town earlier, stocked up on my Sugar Free Jelly, and managed to find the Total 0% Greek yoghurt in my local Sainsburys.

Even bought little round plastic containers so I can pre-make my jelly for the week and take it into work with me to have after my soup for lunch.

How does the jelly/yoghurt thing work? Is that a "snack" or does it count toward your meal for the day?

I know it will all be in the Week 2 booklet but Im intrigued!!!

Jelly and Yog are FAB!!!!! If you have a quarter of the jelly and 100g of Greek Yog - its only 60cals and no fat! Perfect when you fancy something sweet. Does not count towards your meal All you count as a 'meal' is your protein choice with veg/salad. I had jelly and yog as puddings!

Ihave been wondering about that too Petey, was not too sure whether you have to have something like the jelly & yoghurt alongside your protein meal! It is the fruit i'm drooling over, i have soooooo missed fruit, but after reading a few of the posts realise that you have to watch your intake!! Keep up the good work Petey, you and i are going to be hand in hand [excuse the pun] throughout our RTM!!!! Janey xx

If you take a look at the management section of the LL site there is a list of serving sizes, you can actually have quite a bit of fruit for one serving (more than I thought anyway), but yes I think it is wise not to go too mad. I tend to stick to 3 servings a day.

sugar free jelly and yogurt sound wonderful. I have spent today preparing for my first week of food. I have bought chicken, salmon, tuna and cottage cheese. i just dont know which to start with. TBH im really scared about pigging out as i havent had any food for 10 months now. i hope that my stomach really has shrunk so i dont feel like i want to eat all of the food in the fridge.

You will be totally fine sil, my stomach had definitely shrunk and that was only about 16 weeks.
I started out with mackerel and salmon on days 1 and 2 as they are quite moist on their own, I though chicken might be a bit dry.
Very filling though.

I found with the poultry based protein like chicken and turkey, that soaking the fillet in something like the garlic and balsamic marinade in a sealed bag over night in the fridge, then using a grilling machine (like a George Foreman thingy) kept it nice and moist.

Good tip Petey i'll be using that one as i do find chicken quite dry on it's own! Janey. xx
