    I thought it may be a good idea to have a resources thread and wondered if anyone could contribute to help us all along the way.

    Here are a few of my own:-

    Resources

    Fantastic weight loss chart - http://onmyweigh.com/tools/ - the chart I use is this one - http://onmyweigh.com/assets/tools/WeightLossProgressChart24.xls but you may find other one's better (hint the top line is the link even though it doesn't look like it).

    Body Fat Calculator - http://www.recipecalc.com/bodyfat.htm

    Recipies (from Mike's blog, I hope this is OK to add as it is something I go into regularly plus it is THE most inspirational blog I have ever read!)

    http://mylighterlife.iblog.com/category/247/1608

    If you can't imagine yourself slim, this could be just what you need - http://www.seeyourselfslimmer.co.uk/ - I want to get one done, but, don't have a full length fat photo (can't remember the last time I had a picture taken). I may get one done now and then have the last three stone shaved off!)


    Hints

    Drink the water at room temperature and set a timetable for how much you can drink, mine is 2 litres by 1pm, another 2 by 6pm and then anything I drink in the evening is a bonus (usually another litre or so).

    Use the water flavourings, I am a convert after this week, it does help.

    If you are feeling hungry, have a savoury drink, on LL you can have 10 a day and it does seem to hit the spot for some reason.

    Please feel free to add, after all we are all in this together!

    I've managed to post umpteen times on this forum without saying the 'P' word but I'm gonna say it ....
    Psyllium Husks! :D

    THE most natural, gentle and effective way to prevent constipation (a blight for many people on a VLCD). Can be taken in powder form added to shakes and soups or in capsule form for those who don't like the idea of taking them in that way.

    They are calorie & carb free so don't affect your diet at all (except in a positive way!)

    Here's the best & cheapest place I've found to order them

    http://www.healthspan.co.uk/shop/product.aspx?Id=C-PH


    and here's the link for Holland & Barrett's capsules

    * VERY IMPORTANT: Remember to drink extra water when taking psyllium husks!

    Oh yes, of course! I use one capsule in a soup every other day and it does keep me regular (I open the capsule and put the powder in that way), any more than that and I get the runs! (sorry if that is tmi!)
