    Hi everyone,

    I'm posting this new thread for everyone to tell us what they are all eating on the Harcombe Diet. Many of us are just starting this fantastic new diet but are still unsure of all the foods we can and can't eat!!
    We already have a few ladies who are doing amazingly well :D following the diet and I know they will be there to help us newbies!

    I'm waiting on the book to arrive from Amazon & so will probably start next week to give me time to digest (no pun intended LOL) the book & get a shop in for all the good, healthy goodies I need instead of the crap that's filling my kitchen at the moment.

    Shall read this (and all the other threads too) with interest to see what everyone is eating.

    I'm most dreading the coffee-withdrawal headache as I tried to give up caffeine about a year ago and had the mother of all headaches for 5 days before I gave in & had a huge cappuccino! I can't drink it black either - yuk! Can we add cream in phase 2 like in Atkins?

    Best of luck for everyone Harcombing (if that's the right phrase LOL) today

    How much in total do you have to lose? I would love to lose a stone too, but, would actually like to think I could lose a little more than that (I have a lot to lose, just lucky that I am tall and am told that fortunately I carry my weight well!!!)
    What make of yoghurt do you ? I'm really not sure that plain yoghurt appeals to me yet quite a few of you guys seem to have it!

    Have to say girls your menus look scrumptious - it doesn't read like a diet thread at all!
