    I try i don't eat much veg or fruit to be honest i think its the amount i eat, maybe there is so healthy means that are cheap as we don't have the extra cash to buy healthy meals.

    Lots of supermarkets are doing cheap fruit & veg at the moment so its worth looking out for offers, but if you dont like them....
    sounds like you maybe need to reduce your portion size a bit. try doing it gradually you'll be surprised how quickly your body adapts

    That can help, all diets seem to encourage you to keep up your fluid intake.
    Have to admit tho that in the winter I prefer warmer drinks like plenty of tea (using skimmed milk) and black coffee.
    In the summer I can drink loads of water but it's just tooooo cold now !!
    diet pops can also help fill you up but I've heard few people saying this seems to slow their weight loss so I tend to limit these.
    I guess you have to try a variety of things til you find the one that suits you best.

    HI DANNY AND:welcome: WATER IS GOOD, AS HUNGER IS OFTEN MISTAKEN FOR THIRST, IT ALSO SPEEDS UP THE METABOLISM FOR WEIGHT LOSS.
    ALSO DO YOU EAT BREAKFAST ?? AS THATS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY.

    breakfast is good as it stopps the brain thinking its in stravation mode, and there 4 u shouldnt want such a big portion at lunch time, maybe try a little cereal b4 school or a slice of toast maybe.

    Yeah I never go without breakfast. If you need something fast try one of the healthier cereal bars or a yoghurt/piece of fruit. You can eat these on the move if need be

    Hey Danny, welcome. We're the same age :) Similar situation as well; I started gaining weight when I was 10, and never bothered to diet/was in denial about it until now.

    Minimins is great for support; I'm sure you'll find the diet that suits you in no time. :)

    Hiya danny and welcome to the forum, as everyone else has stated breakfast is the most important meal of the day and best not to miss out on it. Regarding advice and support ya have defintely come to the right place to get it. What diet plan are ya following? There are so many diets on this website that I am sure people will answer your questions for ya. If ya think your portion sizes are too large maybe ya should think about a cutting them down and adding more fruit and veg, water is also a good source for weight loss and tricks the brain to thinking that your full. All the best with everything and your first week, I look forward to reading your success over the next couple of weeks, take care
