Tanya, bread is not allowed on the WW core plan. You can have ryvita, original, rye or multi grain, but not bread unless you take it out of your 21 points that you are allowed each week.

L - Banana & apple with low fat yog over the top

Not a very filling lunch, this would still leave me starving. You need some protein too.

D - Chicken breast baked with lemon and pepper with cooked mixed vegetables (brocoli, cauliflower & peas) You could make some fat free chips, just peel chips as usual, spray with a little frylite and shake over some paprika or sea salt or anything else you would like and bake in a hot oven for about 25-30 minutes.

Tuesday 4th August - at work

B - Banana, apple & lf yog. Add some cereal, maybe 2 weetabix or something.

L - Tuna salad (lettuce, cucumber, toms & carrot) Piece of fruit for desert would be good here too.

D - Baked Salmon fillet with mixed veg.
Not enough to eat again here, add a jacket potato

Wednesday 5th August - at work

B - Boiled egg & carrot sticks
Yeuch, what a mixture. Not enough again to eat here chick, you would be straight to the biscuit tub within half an hour.

L - Grilled gammon steak with a pineapple ring and mixed vegetables.
Add potato or rice or pasta.

D - Ham salad
Fruit, yogurt too would be ideal

Thursday 6th August - at work

B - Special K Bar (check the list, I dont think special k bars are allowed)& small apple

L - Vegetable soup with added kidney beans
Couple of ryvita with this would be okay and a piece of fruit afterwards.

D - 3 egg omlette with peas & tomato added in with salad
CARBS too, have more filing meals.

Friday 7th August - at work

B - Banana & Apple
Not enough.
L - Mediterianian butter beans (butterbeans, chopped onion, can of toms cooked down) with brown rice.

D - Tuna salad
Have more with it not just fish and salad.

Saturday 8th August (off to blackpool at 6am)

B - boiled egg and a banana before we set off


Tanya, sorry I have demolished your menu, you are not eating nowhere near enough and you would be raiding the fridge at the first opportunity.
The beauty of weight watchers core plan is to eat 3 filling healthy meals each day to stop you snacking, but your meals are nowhere near enough to fill you up.

I will give you some examples of menus tonight when I am in work, just going to get some sleep now.

Ok thanks mary that would help alot :)

I dont add carbs just because i just dont want them. I'd rather fill up on veg and fruit rather than have a potatoe or chips with it!

Mind you home made chips on monday sound delish so i am going to do them.

Monday i forgot, its my monthly job day to work :sigh: (hate that place) so monday i wont have time for brekkie so will save a maint bar and have that then for lunch when home have i duno ... arrghhhh its so confusing!

How many calories should i be looking at having a day?

How many portions of carbs a day?

When you are on the WW plan, you dont count calories and carbs are good to eat, they keep you filled up for longer, hence the reason for no need to snack. It really is beneficial to eat carbs on this plan Tan.

I cant stand the thought of having them everyday yet mary - they scare me! :giggle: maybe i will just count calories then and maybe not go above 1200? and then have 2 days a week where i have sensible carbs and not go above 1500?

Good luck Tanya on whatever you decide to do chick. You seem to have had a better day today, so maybe you can gain strength from that.

I am sure you will make it to goal, its just finding the way to go and once your celebrations are over, at least you can go back on TFR until you reach goal hun.

Tanya- I'm exactly like you- scared to death of carbs after losing the weight. Pre-LT the bulk of my carbs was from toasted wheaten bread or weetabix for breakfast- the rest was from my veg intake & the odd 'treat' biscuit! (I hate fruit...) so I have to get my head around the fact they were actually good-ish choices!
If you want an idea of what calories you should be having to maintain/lose- google "BMR Calculator" and it'll give you the amount your body needs to function properly- 1200 won't be nearly enough you'll find. No reputable site/doc/programme will recommend you to go under 1200cals a day when trying to lose weight.
Roughly, if you're fairly inactive- multiply your BMR by 1.2 and that figure will be what you roughly burn in a day. If you eat less than this (avoiding going under your BMR) you'll still lose. It's a bit confusing, but hope it helps a bit?
There are a few sites where you can log your daily intake and it'll calculate your fat/protein/carb breakdown so you can see where you need to make adjustments?

So i used this site irish ... BMR Calculator

and it says i should be having 1639.4 ... surely thats alot if im trying to lose weight?!!!!

Not necessarily- it won't vary much even if you were 10st- mine is 1580 and I'm 10 1/2stone! All reliable sources will tell you the average woman (I imagine they mean a 10-odd stone woman?) needs around 1800cals a day to function- why should we be the exception!
I take it thats your BMR? If so, then your burn is roughly 1960. What you can do is calculate your BMR at your goal weight and use that as your intake target. If it comes in at around 1400, then you'll have a daily deficit of 560- 3920cals a week which will be 1lb lost. Not much- especially after LT, but you can increase this by upping your exercise to create a bigger deficit.
I hope this isn't confusing you?
But you have to remember- the losses on LT are the exception- not the rule. Losing weight the normal (and keeping it healthy) way is slow and hard work.

Yep, im lost irish ..... so the number that the bmr gave me is the calories i should eat a day to maintain? or to lose weight?

Neither, your BMR is what your body needs to function- to make sure your morgans are getting the nutrients they need to work properly and not be harmed by potential deficie. To maintain- you should/could eat what you burn in a day- i.e. your BMR x 1.2 (if you do no exercise/strenuous work)

i agree with irish, on ww losing weight u were allowed 18 pts,

sample menu
breakfast bowl of cearal with skimmed milk 3.5 pts
lunch wrap chicken salad low mayo 4 pts
dinner chicken fillet potato veg 6pts
snacks banana apple low fat yoghart 2.5 pts

thats leaving 2 pts for variation !

and they always figured if u didnt eat the 18 pts u wouldnt lose weight, thou you can keep some for weekend for wine or xtra food

so i agree pet i think u r hungry because u r not eating enough of the right foods, but thats only my opinion ;)

Tan - when you use that link you posted are you just doing BMR or are you doing what it says and using the Harris Benedict Formula. If that figure you're quoting is just your BMR you WOULD lose weight but very slowly. There are links there about calculating how many cals you need to lose or gain weight as well.

I was going to do it for you but I don't know your height. :) x

Hi Tanya not been on forum for ages but read you were asking alternative for special k bar- have you tried the go ahead bars in tropical fruit flavour they are really nice and very low in fat and cals better than sp k which are high in suger. I've been maintaining since finishing lipotrim and am in gran canaria at the mo with my hubby daughter and grids having a brill hol. I'm having maintenace shake and bar in the day and normal meal in evening including sangria and managing to maintain - anyway try go ahead bars really nice- you look great btw and well done you should be so proud of yourself xx

It's on the same page as the Harris Benedict calculator thingy but I've done it for you.

Your BMR as you said is 1639.4 - to get your maintenance calories using the Harris Benedict equation you multiply that by 1.375 (the figure for if you do light exercise 1-3 times a week) making 2254.175. So this is how many cals you need a day to sts. As 1lb of fat = 3500 cals, to lose 2lbs per week you need to consume 7000cals per week less, which is 1000 less per day = 1254.175.

So on 1200 cals a day you should lose 2lbs per week ....... okay?

Hope I've explained that okay - if not let me know. :) xx
