    So, I had some kind of heart event yesterday and now I have to come off Lighter Life - gutted! I'm not sure what I'm most gutted about to be honest!

    So now I have to look into what diet I can do - and what diet is best - for angina - great - any suggestions/advice welcomed!

    Consult your doctor for the best plan for you. If you've had a heart event you need to be talking to a specialist about what is and isn't safe for you going forward.

    The docs are more than happy for me to stick with Lighter Life, or do any main stream diet. It was the Lighter Life policy that has stopped it for the time being. However, decision has been made and I've re-joined SW, who were more than happy to accept me and simply feel that their healthy eating approach to weight loss is going to benefit my heart no end :)

    Hi Enough, ooo scary about your heart and hope you're ok. How are you getting on with SW? Dave (hubby) recently had 2 heart attacks and immediately got him on a vegetarian diet with SW principles, so far he's lost nearly 2st since March. He's having chicken again a couple of times a week but avoiding red meat, his cholesterol level is 5.7 but have been told to try and get it to 4. He's seen a dietician as he's also diabetic and said happy with the diet he's following. Good luck with yours and will be following you to see how you're getting on X

    Thank you Tibbs! I'm thinking about some of these options:
    - low gi
    - slimming world
    - vegetarian
    - 5/2
    - seeing a dietician..

    Sounds like your husband is doing really well. I could easily be vegetarian with the occasional piece of chicken.. I just need to be alive! X love to you xxxx

    Hello again, I was in panic mode at first and looked into low gi & low gl (glycemic load) and found it hard to decide which to go with as some things with high gi are low gl:confused:
    Seeing a dietician has helped Dave a lot as it sunk in that I'm not just banging on about healthy eating for nothing. Mind you, he willingly switched to being veggie when previously would say he hated the food before even tasting it! Chicken is his treat days:D
    I also keep his Sat Fats no higher than 3 and Sugars no higher than 10. I've bought a book that the dietician had that has photos of various foods with portion sizes and all the data underneath photo so makes it easier when meal planning.

    Heart problems are a big frightening wake up call that it's time to have a look at your life style and change it as much as possible. Not always easy to get rid of stress and other things but diet is something you can control and tweek to suit yourself.
    Enjoy your day, hugs Tibbs X
