    Hello :) I would reccomend a low carb diet. At the mo I am doing the Cabridge diet its a meal replacement diet and so far 8 weeks in and 1.5 stone down :)

    I also recommend a low carb diet, I'm currently following celebrity slim/slimmm and have lost weight quite easily (when I manage to follow it)! When my current shakes run out I plan on using the tesco ultraslim shakes as they have the same amount of carbs as the celebrity slim, even when made up with 250ml of skim milk, and they're considerably cheaper.
    But if you don't feel like a meal replacement is for you try simply eating low carb! Cut out bread, pasta, rice, potato, etc, or swap them for low carb alternatives. A great website is the lowcarbmegastore, particularly their mama lupes low carb tortillas!

    At the end of the day it depends what you think you can handle, meal replacement isn't for everyone, and some people can achieve results by cutting back on some foods.

    Let us know how you get on!

    I agree, unfortunately other than "lose weight" my gp hasn't been very helpful, luckily I'm a great googler and found a lot of great information online!

    I'm on slimming world. I didn't feel that a very low calorie diet would be suitable for me at work and also with slimming world I feel I'm making changes to my lifestyle. Not that everyone else isn't but I felt slimming world would help me achieve this.

    I have PCOS and low carb/Gi type diets did nothing for me. But I am also a thyroid cancer patient so that maybe affects it.
    So what works for me?
    Eating sensible but low calorie meals. I don't even look at the carb intake but I am sensible with it. So if I am having pasta I go for wholemeal rather than white. Carbs are essential for performance and recovery if your exercising. This is what works for me eating what I want but keeping it under a certain level. Good luck!
