    Hi - and welcome to the forum.

    If I were you I'd stick to the Extra Easy while you get into it (if you have the info for that depends if the books you've got are newish ones). It's a lot less restrictive.

    Best of luck - and don't forget to use the forum if you get confused. There's loads of info already here that you can search for, and members are always happy to answer questions and offer advice and ideas too.

    Have fun with it!

    Beccy x

    Hi Freddy. Good luck with everything. My mum suffered badly with agoraphobia for many years and my eldest son has it mildly too (although his is more like a social phobia I believe), so I kind of know where you're coming from. The similarity doesn't end there either - he weighed similar to what you do now (& was the same height) but lost almost 6 stone in 6 months, so it is definitely achievable. He's now a complete health freak!

    All the best with the online group :)

    Hi Freddy :D

    Goodluck with the new eating plan. Once you get your head around it it does become part of everyday life & not as restricted as a diet IMO:)

    Theres tons of info on here & some yummy recipes in the recipe section at the top of the page - have a good nose around & all the very best x
