    well done on the weight loss !! Inspiring :)

    I'm just on day 1.5 of attack, so can't comment on the tiredness thing... on the contrary I seem to be fine considering the very small amounts I'm eating :S no hunger either

    Keep it up, we're all dreaming of white linen trousers today :) it'll be soooooooo worth it....

    If it is ketosis (i know cos I have ketostix) you should wake up tomorrow feeling absolutely full on energy! - thats your body stopping to burn carbs but burning fat!)

    I was going to ask if you're eating enough... I felt tired on days 2 and perhaps 3, but since then I'm buzzing and full of energy!!

    The book has some sauces... but I like mine fried (in non stick pan) with garlic...

    Great weight loss but can you post your menus so that we can see if you're eating enough?

    Oooh and I'm wearing white trousers today - did I mention?!!

    Yoghurt only for breakfast - INSUFFICIENT!!
    Chicken... how much? Looks insufficient
    Dinner looks good!

    Where's the oatbran? It's obligatory (AND it tastes great and you can make good things with it)!

    The trouble is that yes you'll lose weight fast, but you'll lose muscle too... this diet funnily enough works better when you eat pure protein... so EAT!!

    My officemate swears that if we take out the little heart bit of the garlic that you don't get bad breath... (try it and let me know if your interviewer keels over when you go in for a kiss - oh yes you don't do that in England(!!)

    Well normally this diet does protect us from the usual low calorie diet muscle wasteage because we're eating loads of protein... (aren't we twinsmum!!!)... he talks about it somewhere in the book... Vicky'll know what page (hihi!)
