Sounds good to me, but I think I would avoid roast chicken and have it either steamed, grilled or boiled. Roast chicken is quite oily and fatty isn't it?

Hey Jan, welcome to FOOD.........lol.

Menu looks good to me and well balanced.
I will be thinking of you, but I wont post my menu for the same 7 days as you, as this will be my first week of my hol - (did I tell you I was going to Turkey?)

Good luck when you go on refeed Jan, you will be amazed at the tastes.

The chicken Yas would only be greasy if having the legs which would be soaking in the chicken fat, but the breast would be okay.
To be honest, I have started to boil/steam my chicken lately, makes it less dry and very succulent.

Oh I see. Damn, it's a shame, the leg is my fave part of chicken, it's the juiciest part.

I'm not planning on deserting anywhere ;) !!

TBH when I say roast chicken breast I mean a breast probably with lemon or lime and tarragon on it wrapped in tinfoil and done in the oven for about 20-25 mins, that's probably actually baked - but I WOULD have the breast off a whole roast chicken as long as I'd cooked it myself - or knew who had ;).
As I'm sure you know those ready roast ones from the supermarket are injected with oil - that's why they're always so moist.

I've now found out that relatives from Oz will be in the area 6,7&8th June and we'll be going for a meal with them - but I'm sure I can work round it.

Mary's right I'm 7lbs from goal as of last Tues so hopefully with tomorrows weigh-in and another 6 days TFRing after that I'll be a bit closer again! We shall see!

Didn't know you were going on holiday Mary ...... hope you have a lovely time .... (honest!!! :eek:) ....

Jan check out this site www.mysupermarket.co.uk

You can go on and add up all you want to buy and it will tell you where's cheapest! I did it for the 10days before i go on hols and its guna cost me almost £30 :eek: (but i am buying bulk chicken and fish that will last way longer than 10 days) Small price to pay to be healthy and slim hey! :giggle:

Yes Jan, all the ease of living is taken away when re-feeding, so many choices, shopping etc to be done, not one trip to the Pharmacy, pick up 21 sachets and go home.......lol
