    Hey, starting my diet today and was just hoping for some advice on slimming world!
    This is my first food diary:

    Breakfast: Fruit salad (banana, orange, kiwi fruit)

    Lunch: Pasta with cheese (healthy extra), mushrooms and tuna

    Dinner: Fried eggs (frylight) with mushy peas and a baked potato.

    Excersize - 30 Min workout dvd :)

    Is this a good example of a slimming world diet? Am I eating any syns?
    I hope the diet works, I have about 2 stones to lose :(
    Also Im doin this on Extra Easy (to start out with)

    After my first day I felt pretty good, avoiding left over chocolate from christmas is a skill! (Though I did have 3 sneaky boiled sweets - not sure how many syns that was).
    Bought two new workout dvds yesterday too, just have to wait for them to be delivered!!
    Is it really possible to have as much carbs as you'd like and still lose weight :S??
    Anyways I'll post my food diary for today once I've eaten =]

    I think the trick to sw is everything in moderation, when you are serving up put your 1/3 superfree on first that way you can't slyly reduce the portion size of superfree and replace with extra carbs/protein. Am assuming you are doing Extra Easy? enjoy it, good luck with wi, its a very family friend, easy diet to follow, enjoy your carbs, but make sure you eat a balanced range of food, if you find your weight loss over next coming weeks is slow, you can adjust your food intake accordingly, but based on your menu i would say yes you are fine to continue enjoying your carbs!

    Friday:
    Breakfast - Pear, Kiwi fruit and Muller light yoghurt
    Lunch - Whole grain rice, tuna and cheese (he) - odd i know but it was good
    Dinner - Salmon, Baked Potatoes (with chopped garlic) and salad (tomato, cucumber, cress and spring onion)

    Snacks:
    Walkers Baked crisps (not sure how many syns?)
    A Boiled sweet too

    Extra easy:
    Saturday:
    Breakfast: A pear and a Muller Light yoghurt
    Lunch: Lentil Dahl with a side salad
    Dinner: Chinese (naughty I know!) - Prawn Chow Mein (7ish syns?)
    I promise I wont eat any more syns today though =D

    Does anyone have any suggestions for me, Im sticking to extra easy because I don't eat meat or poultry, just fish, how could I do a red day, or should I just stick to extra easy?
    Any advice/comments would be so helpful =] xx

    hi supersoy,

    I am not as much of an expert as some of the people on this site. But you could have a red day and just have as much fish as you want. You dont seem to be having any syns and I was told that this is sometimes not a good thing. It does not look like you are eating enough to me. But as I say I am not as knowledgeable as some! There are some great people on here to help you. Good luck
    btw - walkers baked crisps 25g 5 syns or if 37.5g bag 7.5syns

    Thanks for the reply Ann-marie! I had no idea walkers baked would have 5 syns, thanks for letting me know! Im glad to hear taking advantage of the syn limit may be a good thing! I won't feel so guilty about my chinese tonight now :) xx

    Ok, the weekend was hard, I spent it at my boyfriends house who eats a lot! haha, anyways,

    Sunday EE
    Breakfast: Grapes, Melon slices and an Apple
    Lunch: No lunch (got out of bed at 11) so breakfast was my lunch
    Dinner: Pasta with tuna and cheese (hex) and dolmio sauce (7 syns)
    Snacks: Milky way bars (7 syns)

    Syns total: 14 - oops =/
    Hopefully will make up for it this week at home, sneakily weighed myself at the boyfriends house and no weight has shifted so far :sigh: but I guess I'll have to wait till the proper weigh in! Any ideas as to what I've been doing wrong? :confused:

    I've just recieved the workout dvd's so decided to do the Clare's Bootcamp one, it claims to burn 1000 calories if you do each section. :eek:
    I did the first two, half of the third and the the cool-down, its hard, but there is a trainer that gives you an easier option, I would definatley recommend it to anyone wanting to excersize! :)

    Oh dear, I know im sticking to the 5-15 limit, but am I overdoing it on the syns? I haven't lost any weight in this first week and I'm not quite sure why, does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi supersoy, I wish I could comment on your post - but I am not that knowledgeable yet. I suggest you try posting on someone like donnajt diary and/or prawnchopsuey and/or freshnewstart diaries. I did not get many people responding for awhile. If you post to them they will definately reply to you. They have been great to me with all their help and advise. Thats what I did and eventually I got some help. hope this helps you a little. I know it can be so confusing at first. xx
