    Hi there

    You don't appear to be eating much. For me that amount of food each day would only be one meal or two at a push. Do you eat breakfast? If I don't fancy it I will have an evening snack instead just so I keep up my free food intake. Also you can have carbs and protein with every meal. I find by having both I feel full for longer.

    Not sure what your likes and dislikes are to advise on what food to add, sorry. Your syns seem very low. You can have up to 15 each day unless advised otherwise. People find that their weight loss improves if you don't limit them. If you are unsure of syn values there is a board on here to ask.

    I've wittered on enough now. Otherwise your food looks good. Keep up the good work.

    Hi
    I agree with knitter, you don't seem to be eating enough. The whole point of SW is that by eating to satisfy your appetite you don't even feel like you are dieting and therefore less likely to give up after a few days or weeks. Also your syns don't seem very much either. Of course if you get the results you're after then thats good but I feel that by following SW more strictly you would get great results. Hope this doesn't sound negative. Its not an easy thing to get used to straight away. Keep up the good work. This support group is excellent and there's always some one available who knows the answers.

    Hi! It's a bit difficult to judge when you just give a list of foods rather than break it down into meals, but my first reaction was also that you're not eating very much. On the plus side you're eating a good variety of foods and fruit/veg :)
