Hiya

I have decided that this is the week I will lose weight, and head back towards the centre of my target range (rather than drifting near the top!).

To focus my mind, and get reading that book again, this week I will aim to have 5 speed foods every day. Starting *now* :eek:

So today I have had:

Blackberries SS
chillis S
onion S
tomatoes S

and will have:
red onion S
medlar S
apple S
more blackberries SS

Anyone care to join me??! :rolleyes:

I'll give it a bash, too. Got a new kitchen being started on Monday though, so I think the next week or so will be a write-off. I'll be on couscous and salad for a fortnight -oh, OK, salad! lol duh!

Today
1. Cottage Cheese
2. Mushrooms
3. Blackberries
4.
5.

Great idea Angie!!

My consultant always says we often forget the speed foods which make up the bulk of a meal, rather than the additional things like fruit and veg - so fish, chicken, turkey, quorn, beans, baked beans, mushy peas etc

As well as all the fruit and veg!!!

I'm not doing so well, I've had a banana so far but am having beans in my soup for lunch and chicken for tea.

What a good thread... it makes us stop and remember it's not just about eating free food, but also that we're supposed to eat a good portion of speed foods as well! It's easy to forget that!

My list for today:
Mango (HH)
Watermelon (S/HH)
Courgettes (HH/S)
Curly Kale (HH/S/C/F)
Apple (HH/S)

Well, that'll do for a start! ;)

That's great with EE princess sausage - on EE you are (ideally) aiming for 1/3 of your food to be superfree to increase your weight loss, and speed foods will only help further!
