    Hi Gemma, Just thought I would tell you someone who is a wiz at the pp calculations - Irishlady - and you will find her diary in the "Members only Diaries" section.

    Do give her a visit if you want a quick answer.

    All the best to you....:)

    no problem, like above the veg is 8pp, and the amount of chicken put in the curries is about a breast = 4pp therefore chicken curry 12pp :D and beef is always higher hence the 14pp :)

    erm try having a banana first thing they helps me and just keep drinking! you will find it's because your not drinking enough maybe throughout the day and your getting dehydrated and making you feel tired :) but yeh fruit and veg will help even in small portions still better than nothing! sometimes carbs make you more sleepy too try eating more protein with veg or something like that cut back a little on the carbs may help! :) that's what i found it was for me anyway hehe good luck! xxx
