    Now Im no expert but over the last few weeks on SW i have noticed a few things that seem to help my weight loss some weeks. First one that stands out is ..melon! The weeks that I eat alot of Melon have been my best ones.
    Also water, weeks that I consciously drink more water, my weight loss is greater.
    And eliminating diet drinks. That helps me too.
    So my top 3 tips are more melon, more water and less diet coke!

    Water melon is a superfree food, but only has 1 s (speed) rather than ss (which all the other melons have)

    I normally love melon, but I'm starting to find it a bit merh... I normally have honeydew but it seems to get more tasteless every time I have it.

    What other melons do people recommend? Xx

    Charentais melons are gorgeous they're the little round ones, sort of yellow with a bit of a green tinge with the beige like 'webbing' over the outside. The flesh is orange. They might be called something else here, but are charentais is France. Not sure of their 'season' but if you can find them it's well worth a try. Try them with a small amount of fruit juice or smoothie in the cavity made by the seeds, it's supposed to be alcohol you put in but for a syn or two, the juice really lifts it!

    :)

    "Piel de Sapo" melons are nice, they usually have them at Tescos. They are rugby-ball size and shape and a rough and sometimes stripy green skin.
