    Ok - I had a rubbish WI result with WW this week even though I've earned 12 Activity points and stuck to the diet......So
    I'm going to do The Unit Diet for a week to see if my WI next week is any better.

    I have 10 Units per day

    Todays menu and points

    Breakfast - Oats so simple =1

    Lunch - 2 x wholemeal bread,spread and half tin of baked beans = 3.5
    Snack 2 finger kit kat = 1.5

    Dinner - Uncle bens sweet and sour chicken and rice = 2.5

    TOTAL = 8.5

    Leaves me 1.5 for a snack later or to save for the weekend ;)

    Would be great if anyone else is doing this diet could post on here too so we can compare etc x

    Hi Tracey,

    Your menu's are looking really good - well done.

    Yes I restarted this plan and have been doing it for nearly 4 weeks now - have lost about 5lbs so far (am in the middle of week 3).

    I stick to about 7-8 units a day as I was sts or losing only 0.5 lb a week on 10 units when I did the plan for the first time about 2 years ago. It is different for everyone though and some people lose more on 10 units.

    Good luck!

    Hi Louisa

    Thanks for your input! I'm struggling to eat 10 units a day as you can see from my menu plans!

    Yesterday I have 2 units left and today will have 5! Not going to eat for the sake of eating my units so maybe good idea to stick with 8 like you have.

    5 lbs is a good loss - I wouldn't complain at that!

    I've got the Unit diet plan book bought it second hand. Its got the fast track plan in there and also the Twist plan - have you tried any of those?

    Tracey

    Yep 10 units a day is a lot of food!

    My maths is terrible - I've lost 7lbs not 5!! :D

    I haven't heard about the twist plan - what is it? I have a paper copy of the fast track plan, I really couldn't survive on rice crispies alone for breakfast though!!

    7lbs is even better :D

    Twist is 8 units a day with a few adjustments to zero foods i.e.no more than one bannana a day and only 2 slices of bread a day, and either 75g pasta or rice or 225g potato a day. Plus make sur e you drink 1.5 - 2 litres of water each day Its supposed to boost your weight loss.


    I've also had reply about what the changes are to the Unit diet - and they say only a few minor tweeks main one being that rice and pasta no longer free and also that only free breakfast cereals are now cornflakes, rice crispies and special k (i thought that was the only one's anyway)

    ok

    DAY 3

    Oats so Simple = 1 unit

    Small portion of chick curry and rice = 1.5

    Kit kat = 2

    Jacket pot
    tuna with mayo light
    salad and sweetcorn = 0.5 units

    3 digestive biscuits = 2

    Total = 8 units

    I'm doing ok regarding hunger - just impatient to see results on scales on Tuesday! :eek:

    WI day


    I've lost 2 lb's ;) :p :D

    Am well pleased with that as Totm is looming and I usually gain!

    I def made sure i drank as much water as poss though as they keep banging on about it!

    Todays Menu

    Cornflakes and skimmed milk = 0

    Fish finger Sandwich
    3 fish fingers = 1
    2 slices medium brown bread = 0.5
    Tomato ketchup = 0
    Muller Yog = 0
    Fruit = 0
    Frazzles = 1.5

    Chilli = 1.5
    Jacket pot

    Total = 4.5

    Snack later ? = 1.5

    = 7 units (will carry over 1 for wk end)

    Needless to say I'm sticking with this as I've found I'm less hungry with it - If i do get the hunger pangs I have a bowl of cereal! Which is great as I usually get munchies around 8pm and cereal isn't too heavy to eat at that time of night.

    I hope anyone else who is doing this plan is having great results too ;o) x
