    Hi all I started yesterday but just wanted to check everything I'm eating is ok and any helpful tips/support will be really appreciated :D Brief history..27 female, always struggled with weight from teenager, done every diet including ww sw atkins & lighter life where I lost 5 stone but couldnt continue due to money issues and then after pregnancy and illness have put it all back on and then some!...need a serious diet that can carry me through and maintain a healthy weight!

    Yesterday - Breakfast 1 poached egg
    Lunch - homemade beef burger X 2
    Dinner - Steak with crushed garlic and pepper. activia fat free vanilla yoghurt.
    Snack - 2 seafood sticks & 1 lean turkey slice.
    2 & 1/2 L water
    Today - Scrambled egg (1yolk 3 whites & skimmed milk) with chopped lean ham. YUM!
    lunch - steak and poached egg.
    Dinner - salmon baked in foil with lemon and thyme. fat free yoghurt.
    Snack - cottagecheese wrapped in turkey slice.
    1L water so far...

    Stil waiting for Oatbran to arrive should be here tomorrow so can have less eggs! Doing 10 day attack :character00116:

    My only concern is vow to never use escalator or lifts as am sticking to it when i'm on my own but is impossible with my youngest child in his buggy. Have take to running upstairs in the house everytime instead of waking to make up for that til he's older! lol!

    Felt very spaced out yeaterday and had headache during the night...is this normal? Also tiolet is my best friend right now have never peed so much since I did lighter life!! ha ha!

    Activia yogurts are not good as they have sugar in them. It is better to have natural yogurt and put some sweetener in it. Apart from the lack of oatbran, I'm not sure that you're eating enough protein there - doesn't look like much to me, and watch your consumption of prepackaged meats as they are very salty. It's better to cook a whole chicken and munch on that.

    Hi thanks for reply ....am cooking a chicken as we speak so will definately use your idea of having some of that for snack instead of packet meat. How could I get more protein? Oh ok! didnt know thqt about activia thanks!! will have to get back to the supermarket lol!

    Lol you aren't! i'm just being overly careful i think, i want this to be last diet I ever do...after getting on scales yesterday for first time in over a year had a major melt down :cry: so maybe being too overly careful with how much I eat! Must cook up some eggs to snack on too rather than processed meats! You have done amazingly well with ur weight loss it's great motivation to see that! x

    We seem to lose more the more lean protein we eat on this regime. I am working at home today so all I think about is food :) no wonder I live in Tescos!! Mmm I wonder if we can have cat? They're quite lean :)

    <touch a hair on a cat and you die...>

    Hello there, and welcome to the board (nearly said "show" then; I watched an episode of Jeremy Kyle last night!),

    Definitely fill your boots with the purer of proteins, rather than packaged meats which are salty. At your current weight, you could (should?) be eating a lot more to protect your muscle mass.

    A multi vitamin would be a good idea...

    Thanks for advice have been snacking on hard boiled eggs and chopped up some turkey breasts and seasoned with piri piri spice and grilled them which are yummy. Hopefully these little things will help up the pure protein without any additives.

    Why 10days attack?
    I weighed more than you at the start and did 6 which is more than enough.

    and the doctor noticed that the weight loss was no better for starving your body longer of essential nutrients!
