    Hello,
    Started weight watchers 3 weeks ago and have lost 1 stone, but since then I have the worst water retention ever, no matter how much I drink, it just wont go!
    I normally find it is alot better if I dont have bread, so have been having porridge with soya milk for my breakfast and a wholemeal pitta bread for lunch.

    Can anyone think of any alternatives to bread to have for my lunch? besides salad ? I dont have a cooker at work only a microwave..Im getting fed up of Pitta bread with salad! Salad and then more salad!

    Hi there

    What about a bagel or crisp bread? I quite like the WW tinned pasta bolognese which can be microwaved.

    Im sure there will be loads of other suggestions before too long :)

    Ohh I love jacket spuds, I think I will have that with chilli on, im trying to keep the carbs for my breakfast and lunch to see if that has any effect on my water retention.

    I had a tuna thing (dont you love how technical I am) today for a snack, its a John West Light Lunch (I think)

    Its chunks of tuna with pasta in a sauce, was really tasty. Nice on its own or would be nice in a pitta bread

    Only 3 points :)
