    :D Hi, I'm a newbie here and I'm just getting set up for my official start day of 24th Jan (so then no excuses!). I have lost just over a stone on slimming world but have got bored of it now so am going to try a low GI diet - half-heartedly gave it ago before christmas and lost a few pounds (which have since gone back on!) so I'm hoping to have some success with another type of eating plan.

    I'm glad to see more people posting on the gl forum. I am sure many people are following some form of Gi/gl diet but don't seem to shout it off the rooftops. I really love GL both as a weightless diet and as a way to maintain my losses.
    If you have been on it for a while you know the drill so best of luck. Keep posting as it sill help keep you focussed. I know when I've been off the forum that I slip a little. All the best for your next weigh in.

    Hi Sallysunshine

    Like you am gonna try GI diet , starting today(as I start a new job on Monday and cant cope with too many new things at the same time!).
    I have tried SW and found it very difficult to lose weight as am veggie and used it as an excuse to go crazy on carbs. I need to limit them really as I have an underactive thyroid and find it very difficult to lose any weight.
    I love most of the foods considered low on GI, so here goes....................
    Good luck for your Monday start too.

    Good luck folks for starting next week. Stick with it for 3 to 4 weeks at least as sometimes our metabolism takes time to adjust to a new regime. in my early weeks on GL I had to weigh foods to get a proper perspective on portion sizes but soon came to recognise the right amounts. Try and keep off alcohol too for the first few weeks as it really helps to get the weight off.
    Set some mini goals for yourselves as it really helps motivate you. Keep posting your progress on here.
    Lots of luck

    Thanks all for the support. Glad that I'm not the only newbie, it's always nice to have someone else learning with you!

    Here goes with my first days food diary (I will complete the missing details throughout the day):


    B: 3 Ryvitas with vegemite & f/f Cott Cheese

    Snack: nothing - not hungry!

    L: Lentil & Veg Soup (Baxters H.C), 2 Ryvitas with Laughing Cow Light.

    Snack: handful of cadburys mini eggs (I believe in a few treats now and then!)

    T: Grilled Gammon, Braised Eggs, Mushrooms, Baked Beans

    Drinks: Decaf Coffee (with Skim Milk): IIII
    : Full-Caf Coffee (with Skim Milk): II
    : Glasses Water: II



    I am a total caffeine addict so am gradually weening myself off full-caf coffee so I will be having a couple of full-cafs for the first week at least - I don't really like tea but am considering it as a coffee replacement.

    How is your week going?? Are you feeling o.k. on your GL foods?
    Get a couple of tins of chick peas and mixed beans and make a curry or spicy stew using these with whatever veg you fancy. It is low GL/low cal and very filling and will keep in the fridge for a few days. Its one of my regular standby meals.

    I was feeling OK until I did my weekly weigh in this morning and had put on 2lb :cry: (I think that is due to excesses over the last weekend as I don't think I've done too bad with my food this week). I just need to knuckle down, get some meal plans done for the next couple of weeks and get to the supermarket then hopefully I'll see some results.

    Keep strong and get back on track. Keep a very close eye on your portion sizes. It is easy to eat too much even though the foods are healthy. At the end of the day ., no matter what diet we follow, calories in must be less than calories out or we will gain weight. Keep at it!!

    Menus look really fab, all very GL appropriate. You can only do well with choices like those. Good luck for your weigh in.

    Another great days menu. I like pearl barley too. How do you cook it? I do it in chicken stock and add some chilli flakes for variety.

    I just boiled it this time - the juices from the roast veg added flavour when heaped on top. I also do it with chicken stock or boil it then "stir fry" it with some onions, chillis & mixed peppers. I really do love pearl barley and it's so filling.
