Carbohydrates in the evening

#1
I could REALLY do with some help please!!! I have been a diligent follower of WW for many years and on the whole have got on very well with it.. I started taking Fluoxetine (prozac) about 6 months ago and have gained a stone in that time.. I am so so so careful about my points and know that I stick within my values all the time.. Im veggie so love the fact that fruit is free and honestly believe Im eating better now than I ever have done before... I just cant lose this weight... can anyone help me... PLEEEASE :eek:( I think I may be eating too much pasta, although I dont eat too much... much maybe eating carbs in the evening is not good for me....??

An average portion of pasta is 40-60g per person I would say switch to wholewheat pasta. Fruit contains a large amount of sugar so be careful not to eat to much at once break it up through the day either for breakfast or lunch and snack time. Also watch your portion sizes , switch to a smaller plate maybe and make sure you weigh your foods. Best not to eat anything after 6 except fruit as fruit only takes an hour for your body to digest where as if you eat late at night it will sit in your stomach . Your body needs time regenerate while you sleep and that's it's job but if it is doing that then it takes longer for the food eaten late to digest. Hope that helps

Hi rosieandjim what weight of pasta do you have when you eat it? I was shocked at how high the PP value a small amount has so I tend not to have it too often... Have you asked your doctor/pharmacist if there are any weight gain side effects from your medication? Some of those tablets can have that effect... It would be worth asking. If you're tracking everything accurately and weighing your portions, it could be caused by medication...

Thank you ladies - thats good advice!! I think I might just stick to fruit and veg in the evenings and see how I get on.. its such a shame rice pasta and cous cous are so much.. but summer is coming so I'll have to do without!!
Many thanks again x

Argh medication can really play havoc with your body! I'm on a whole heap of meds myself and they told me point blank that it would be very difficult for me to lose weight. And there's pretty much feck all I can do to help, if I didn't take my meds I'd probably be very ill/hospitalised :(

Just make sure you are being super accurate with measurements and pointing honestly. Sometimes a bit of exercise helps. I find if I use my weeklies, and not exercise, I wont do that well on the scales.

What you are eating won't make a huge difference tbh, all of the different food categories are weighted appropriately through the points formulae.

If that still doesn't work, talk to your doctor about it. x
