Possibly too many bananas and not a lot of superfree with meals. Slimming World recommends that you have a third of your plate as superfree foods with each meal.
Otherwise I think your meal plan is good.
Hi thanks for replying - i'm well aware i'm eating too many bananas -so they are now out - i'm also going to start having a mound of boiled veg with a portion of meat each evening instead of cooking meals x
