    Hey, how are you all? I just realised something last night, I need to do something drastic about my weight! My name is Jake and I weigh over 300lbs - this is causing me no end of worry and I am now in the depressive spiral that is overtaking my life.

    I'm looking for advice and encouragement to make my life more simple! Watch this space!

    Thanks Irene, iveposted something already in the "Head" forum http://www.minimins.com/bring-your-...6793-diet-weight-loss-advice.html#post1656823 - To be honest I don't know where to start.

    My current diet was (I thought) pretty healthy -

    Breakfast always cereal (rice krispies etc not what i'd class as sweet breakfast)

    Lunch will normally be a 200ml cup of Vege Soup and a small tub (about 200ml of salad - staying away from mayo etc)

    Dinner is then a choice from follows:

    Monday - Vegetarian dish (normally baked potato with low fat filling)
    Tuesday - Chicken (normally with vege's)
    Wednesday - Pasta (tomato based sauce)
    Thursday - Sandwich / Baguette
    Friday - Fish & mainly fries with the fish
    Saturday - Pizza
    Sunday - Trad Roast

    My main trouble is at night, when I don't drink loads during the day - I just want something else to eat and need a couple of slices of toast with a packet or two of crisps and a biscuit or two! This cycle is common and i'd rather be honest about it.

    I'm not sure which diet I should follow, but my target is to lose 50lb n(at least).

    It would be good to know your thoughts.

    Sorry about that Jake. Your reply took a while to go through :eek:
