    Hi Christine :)

    I was new to this site too but have found it a great help. Have a nose about the site, esp the recipe section as there are lots of good idea's on there to stop you getting board & eating the same meals all the time.

    Also - if your having a down moment - take a peek at the before & after pics section, really motervational!

    What plan are you doing? I tend to do red days with the occasional green thrown in :)

    Hi there,

    You might find it useful to keep a Food Diary on here (there's a section for this at the top), so if you find you're not losing weight someone can look at your eating and see if there's anything wrong. It acts as a nice record for yourself to keep track of what you've eaten throughout the week. Reading other people's diaries can give you inspiration for your own meals too!

    Good luck xx

    Green days work perfectly well too - each plan does if its done right i think.

    One great tip from me I forgot to say - When I 1st started I would sit down with all my recipe books & that & plan my weeks menu & stick to it!

    I planned breakfasts (porridge using my HEb & HEa) everyday, my lunches & evening meals. This way I knew exactly what I would be eating, could make the previous evenings if it was easier, had lunches ready & most important - knew exactly whay my syns were going to be!

    I don't plan so much now - have general idea's & allow myself some flexability - but in the begining that is what helped me get my head around everything :)

    Word of warning - not all are free but most are low syn. I know the Thai noodle one is half a syn, some of the creamy pasta ones like the cheese flavour is synned too.
