Hi and welcome. I bet your weather is hotter than ours at the moment. Have a look at some of the diet websites. Some do a week's menu plan which you could start with.

Good luck

Hi Kelly,

I am also new here and doing calorie controlled. I have lost weight this way in the past and found it easy to stick to. I remember always saying to everyone how easy it was! I've put a stone back on though so need to get on it! I like calorie controlled because you can continue with it to maintain your weight after you reach your target, not like other 'fad' diets where you are flung into the deep end once its finished!

There is a lot of good advice on here, check out other users food diariess for low kcal ideas. Its good to find very low kcal foods that you like, for those times when you just want to eat cos your bored! I eat a lot of hartleys sugar free jelly (after most meals) as it feels like im getting a desert but its ultra low kcal. Pickled onions and beetroot are also good 'boredom snacks'. Also, fill yourself up with fruit and veg.

Everyone is different and you need to find ways to make yourself stick at it. I will have a treat every week if I lose, its always an incentive to be good the rest of the week!

Good luck!
