    Hey I am going to be moving onto the owl phase of the diet next week and was wondering for those of you have done or are currently in the phase what did you find easiest to introduce first? Nuts, seeds or berries? Thanks x

    It varies Kelly, I had a lot to lose so stayed on induction for 6 months, I don't have the book any more, but I seem to recall that you stay on OWL until you are about 5 - 10 lbs from your target weight.

    Yes I'm still not sure whether my target will be 10 and half stone (my pre-pregnancy weight) or 10 stone, because alot of people have said I'll look too skinny at 10 stone. So I'm 8lbs off my pre-pregnancy weight x
