    Hey everyone :)

    I now have just a pound to lose! But it is taking forever to come off! I seem to have came to a stand still!

    Any ideas what i can do to shift it?

    Thanks :)

    My first thought is speed food. Try and eat loads (assuming you don't already).

    My second thought is, have you thought of setting your target at your current weight. Perhaps with the pressure off it will help that last pound go - if you know what I mean.

    Thanks, i probably don't eat enough speed food so will give that a go :)

    Yeah i do see what you mean and yeah that does sound like a good idea as the pressure is kind of on to lose this last pound!

    Do you think maybe i should also cut down on my syns? I am currently having nearly all of them, around 13 a day usually! Is that too many?

    I would definitely agree with lizie2008 about the speed foods. Aim to have between 10 and 15 a day. It seems a lot, but after a couple of days it will be easy.

    And try cutting down to 10 syns, I'm sure if you did both for a week you'd ose that pound. Good luck!

    are you drinking plenty of water? do you exercise? if not try at 15-20 min walk a few times a week and that should give that last pound the royal boot

    When I have a speed food challenge, I start the day with cut up apples and pears mixed with yoghurt. Then have a huge salad for lunch, with quorn chicken pieces or tuna, carrots, peppers, cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, bean sprouts and radishes.
    For tea I have chicken or Turkey in a casserole using various veg such as spinach, kale, onions, passata, cabbage, brocolli or courgettes.
    All the foods I have mentioned above are speed foods.
    Have ryvitas or scan bran as your HEB.
    Snack on Super Speed fruits such as melon, strawberries, yellow plums or blackberries.
    It's worth noting that the following foods are Super Speed:
    Baked beans
    Broad beans
    Butter beans
    Cannellini beans
    Garden Peas
    Mushy Peas
    Petit Pois
    Sword Beans

    I'm not a fish lover so I don't know about which fish are speed foods but I know lots are.

    I find it easier to write them down as I'm having them so I can keep track!

    Hope this helps!

    Also, I bet you coud increase your syns again to maintain.
