Hi I'm from Milton Keynes, UK and I'm starting back on SB. I treid in feb this year but i was a total fail, didn't lose at all so later on i ended up doing Atkins, lost 11lbs just before my holiday to Ibiza, Spain.

But when i came back I'd only gained 3lbs which was cool, but I didn't get back on to the Atkins treadmill. I've added another 4lbs so i need to do something quick before it gets out of control.

I was getting bored with Atkins (thats what normally happens) so I remembered I had the SB book in my cupboard, I've brushed off the cobwebs and here I go! :D

I need to re-read the book (I quickly skimmed through it the other day, but haven't had time yet to sit down for a better catch up :o) will do by the weekend though.


Anyway can someone just very quickly look at what I've ate today and tell me yay or neigh:

Brekkie: 1 large portobello mushroom, topped with 1 sliced salad tomato, 1 tsp red pesto and 20g of low fat cheese, 1 scrambled egg with a little soya milk for consistancy and 2 turkey bacon rashers.

Late Lunch: 3 tablespoons of red pepper hummus (no sugar in it), 3 red pepper sticks, 3 sticks of cucumber to dip in, 2 slices of smoked ham with low fat soft cheese in the middle rolled up with a lettuce leaf wrapped around.

150g low fat fromage frais with 20g of nuts mixed in.


I think the above sounds ok to me, oh and i had a glass of water with each meal.


anyway nice to meet all of you, and anybody in Louisiana or nearby I hope the weather isn't too bad, fingers crossed it's not as bad as last time.

:welcome:, Claire! I'm glad you've decided to give SBD another try.

Your menu sounds good, except that keep in mind smoked meats are very high in salt, which will cause you to retain water, so go very easy on them and drink lots of water to counter-balance it and flush it out of your body.

Good luck, and we hope to see you around here often!

Nice to meet you! Sounds to me like maybe you are actually eating too little. Crazy notion, isn't it.
