    Hi all

    been looking at what i eat throughout the day to see why my weight loss has stayed the same these last couple of weeks

    i am on 33 pp and i use these as follows

    breakfast - 6pp
    lunch - 10pp
    dinner 17pp

    between each meal i snack on lots of fruit.

    does this look all right to you all or am i eating too much for dinner how do you all spread your points throughout the day

    Without seeing the finer details of a days intake it is difficult to assess.
    So are you saying that the only things that pass your lips other than meals and fruit are within those points?
    Do you never have an unaccounted cup of tea or a snack that isn't fruit.
    When you say you have a lot of fruit, what is a lot?
    What are you drinking throughout the day? Have you never gone over your points during the week. How many of your extra pp have you had?

    U cud be eatin too much fruit, my leader said last week that the previous week they had a talk and anyone who was eating lots of fruit cut back the following week and started losing again, she had said that even though fruit is zero points it still has calories and shud only be eatin if u are hungry and not just for sake of eatin something.. suppose it makes sense xx

    can you write down an example diary of last week? What you ate every day and quantities? I can't guarantee we can help you, but a lot of heads think better than one!

    Ditto above. It is also estimated that people under report up to a third of what they have actually consumed. It may be worth for a week writing everything down BEFORE you eat it. 10 pp for milk for a whole week doesn't seem that much to me unless you are only having a couple of teas a day. Do you measure it and are you religously weighing everything even though you may feel you know what say 28gms of philli looks like. Are you eating lots of veg and bulking your meal out with good quality fuel? Just some ideas
