    Hi all,

    I seem to be struggling to SS lately - some days I can do it but most days I end up having to have something to eat, and although I stick to just having chicken or fish, lettuce and cucumber, my weight loss has slowed right down - I think it's because sometimes I substitute a shake for the food??

    I was thinking about trying the 790 that everyone mentions but I know nothing about it. Do u have three shakes per day still and what sort of things can you have to eat?? More importantly, will it help me get my losses back on track as I want to lose about 3 -4 lbs per week but at the moment am only losing 1-2 lbs per week.

    Can anyone advise??

    Hiya - sorry to hear ur struggling a wee bit...:(

    790 is an excellent plan (my OH lost 2 stone on it in 5weeks !) still have your 3 shakes per day PLUS 1/2 pint skimmed milk PLUS a small meal of 175g chicken (or other protein from the list) and 3 tablespoons of veg from the list.....

    will have a rummage and find the exact quantities for you...

    back in a mo....

    Thanks Debs - I am going to give it a try for a couple of weeks and see how it goes - at the end of the day as long as the weight comes off, then I guess I don't mind, but I don't think I have been doing the right think by skipping a shake and having food instead!!! And I can't spell STRUGGLING!!! :doh: doh!
