    Hello, I've bought the book, I've read the induction bit and I started today.

    After wasting several hundred pounds on the SureSlim diet (hated going to be weighed by this woman every week! for the fear of being a failure, and I was a fail a big one at that!!) Plus only having meals 5 hours apart and no snack in between was too hard. I've decided that carbs (some carbs) are not my buddy.

    There's a lot to get my head around, so fingers crossed x:D

    Yes - i feel so lucky to have discovered this way of eating:D

    My favorite snack is pork crackling - they are crunchy, salty and fatty and meet all my nibbly tendancies. Oh yes and legal (check the label for different brands);)

    In induction i found cheese and pepperami really useful to manage the initial hunger pangs - always had some in my bag so no excuses!

    I am right on the edge of Linford wood. I and my dogs are often seen prowling around in there.
