Now that I can't afford CD, I'm trying to do the whole healthy eating and exercise plan, especially as I'm walking a flipping marathon next year. Here's what I've put together, what do you guys think?

Gym plan is HIIT alternating every minute. Starting week 1 at 12 minutes, adding a minute each week up until 20 minutes. Followed my at least 15 minutes of jogging. On off days I might do swimming, a fitness class, or just yoga or something.

Breakfast - Weetabix with skimmed milk
Lunch - Omelette made with 4 egg whites, shredded low fat cheese and diced lean ham. Serve with two slices of whole-wheat toast
Dinner - Mince in tomato sauce with brown rice and vegetables

Hi Caroline, well done on your weight loss so far! Good luck with your new regime, it sounds kinda strict but I suppose you can do that for the first few weeks and then adapt it later so you don't end up getting too bored or fed up. How much are you hoping to lose per week?

Do you plan to allow for any snacks at all? I don't snack much during the day but I have to have something in the evening as I can't sleep on an empty stomach.

I think I need the strictness. The meals and that will change around a bit, but going to do a weekly plan each week to try and stick to. Snack wise I'm thinking apples (I like crunchy red apples lots!) and possibly a few other types of things. One mid morning and one mid afternoon. I have a rubbish metabolism so apparently eating something every few hours helps keep it up.

Hi Caroline

I would say your diet is low calorie but really lacks in veggies, fruit and salad. I try to have huge portions of these with lunch and dinner to try and cut out some of the calorie intense carbs.

Well done on the excercise side of things!

Apples are the business, they're really filling.

Every weight loss journey is different and unique, it sounds like you are finding the way that is best for you which is the best way to succeed imho. Good luck & let us know how you get on.
