    hello ! well the joshi diet is a detox diet and is something that gym paltrow tried but I have been on it a week and I have not lost weight - I havent dome much excercise with it - I am still trying to figure out what is the best excercise regime for me ......


    its a basic really: no bread, pasta, no dairy ( except yogurt) no fruit (except banana) no rice ( except brown rice) , lots of vegetables and carrots seem to be particular fav - cut out coffee - herbal teas only, no sugary foods etc - lots of fish and eggs

    I have managed first week ok - his book has a reciepe section thankgod

    I did cheat today - family I havent seen in ages ( 10 years) were in London for a visit so we went out.....oops at least I didnt drink - again - no drinking or smoking

    I think I might just try and fins some weightwatchers in my area- I have heard good things and I need that support - I struggle on my own

    this is my first time at dieting period. I was never that aware before. But diabetes is a big issue in my family as with most asian families and when I checked my BMI which went from overweight to obese - it was huge psychological shock - trigger as it were and the weight I have put on has been slow over a number of years....... No idea if thats is a good or bad sign for my metabolism and future weight loss - its really depressing :( I mean I am only 20 now - the earlier I attempt weight loss the better

    Hi Smee
    Good to be aware at a young age. It IS easier to lose the weight when you are young. Once you work out a healthy weight for you and find the right way (for you) to do it you will be well away :)

    Im just trying healthy eating, and whatever i eat im having smaller portions of (using a smaller plate) and ive cut out the junk especially the crisps which are fatal for me.
    Support is always good so if u feel you struggle on your own use WW or SW at least it will give you a good idea where to start, and keep coming on here its brilliant for support and encouragement
