    Hi everyone,

    I am in Germany working for the British forces. I am 37, married with two devils (lol). Until a year ago i was a Slimming World consultant but due to other commitments i gave it up. Giving up SW as a consultant also meant giving up on eating healthy and over the past few months i have been trying to lose the weight i gained. Little did i know that SW was actually making me feel awful and gain weight cos as i have recently found out i have a wheat intolerence and having bread, cereal, pasta etc was not helping.

    Yesterday i plucked up the courage to get the scales (i have been avoiding them - i knew what they would say cos i don't fit into my lovely clothes), i was shocked to say the least. I was searching the internet for a post xmas diet when i came upon this diet. I am impressed with everything i have read so far on the website and to know that it will help with the intolerence is a bonus.

    I have ordered the book form Amazon and have started clearing out the cupboards - all ready to start on the 02 Jan 13. The only thing i am worried about is my cups of tea, i live on tea!!! Today i have started to drink herbal ready for when i start the diet and hopefully i will get used to it.

    So, here is to a healthier body in 2013 - Happy New year Everyone. xx :)

    My first day was good. I have a slight headache brewing as this is the second day with no caffeine or [email protected] food! I had porridge for breakfast, chicken and salad from the harvester for lunch and steak with roasted veg and broccoli for tea. Was all lovely only thing I missed was the dressing on the salad. Am having a few cravings, general urges to eat rubbish as opposed to anything in particular tho. Bar a nice cold can of Pepsi max, I have been craving that. Bring on day two!!

    Are you on it too? X

    Well done for sticking with it. I've just been reading an article about it and it sounds just what I've been looking for. I think I'll have to buy the book though to find out all the rules. x

    There aren't really many rules bar what you've probably already read but the book is worth reading for the full understanding x

    I'm going to start tomorrow. Need to go shopping first. It's going to be difficult because my other half doesn't want to give up sugar. :-/ x

    Mine isn't on plan. He is eating as before for breakfast (which he rarely has) and lunch but havin evening meal with me, he just has carbs till so pots or pasta normally with whatever I'm cooking. Good luck, you will be fine. If he doesn't want harcombe food he knows where the cooker is...., ;)

    I tried it but didn't lose much weight so gone back to Slimming World. I got a bit confused with what I could have in phase 2. How are you doing? x
