    Hi lovely people,

    So I started low gi diet Monday and thinking of switching to slimming world, I'm not 100% getting on with it, purely for the reason that I feel down a lot and my natural reaction is to eat, so my thinking is to switch to SW so I can fill myself up on the free foods to avoid that and if I do feel down and want to eat I can just snack on free foods with out the worry of ruining my diet. If I manage to lose weight I know I will feel happier but want to eat when I feel down cos I feel so gross and fat......vicious circle

    Sorry for the essay, opinions would be fab :)

    I'd definitely recommend it. I eat when sad, lonely or bored, stressed too. Being able to snack on so many tasty things is what make me better at SW than any other diet, plus you have your syns as well if you need that sweet treat (or drink/take away)

    Good luck whichever route you take x

    Some things from the Chinese are fairly low, think chow mein or chicken in black bean are ok.

    Not sure about the nandos, sure someone will be able to find out though
