    Small bananas can have only 70 calories and the bigger ones reach 150 cals; so it really depends the banana's size.

    I snack on dried fruit sometimes. It's more colarie dense than fresh fruit, but if you track the calories eaten you'll be fine;)

    Hi Gem, Thought I would just recommend a little book that I have found invaluable for keeping track of allsorts - Carbs, Fibre, Calories, Protein and Fat. It's The Collins Crab Counter and it's pocket size, costs literally only a few pence and you can buy it online. It's the best thing I have bought for helping me with my CC and carbs . Even gives some menus for different diet regimes and takeaways.

    Hope that will be of some use to you.

    Hi Gem :)

    Don't worry much about the weight for now, maybe your body is still adjusting to new eating habits;)

    If you don't enjoy counting calories, maybe you could try to pay attention to portion sizes:)

    Eat lots of fruits and veggies (those never made me gain:p) and be sensible with the other foods. Also, limit the fat you add to foods and and the time goes on the weight will go away, just trust the process :)

    I'm doing fine, Thank you Gem :)

    I'm mostly maintaining. I wouldn't mind to lose 3 or 4 pounds, but my real goal is actually not gain:p
