    Hi All,

    please can I join? I've been low carbing for just over a month now. Lost about 15lbs. However regained like 5 of them over the last few days so annoyed with myself. I know its mostly water weight as i didnt even eat that much. Just toast, noodles, chocolates back on the plan today though.

    Anyone got a good low carb stew recipe? im so tired of chicken salad, its so cold for it.

    I would just do stew as normal but leave out 2/3rds of the potato.

    Don't forget, if you are eating low carbs your fat intake must increase.

    I was hungry early yesterday so had a small green salad with avocado and chorizo, for my main meal I had cauli cheese, it was at this point I found I had picked up extra thick cream instead of double, it still made a nice cheese sauce mixed with cream cheese, and a pork chop.
    Today having roast chicken with loads of veggies.

    Hi everyone.

    PAmsdish - I do like you posting your meals, it gives me ideas.

    Well I have been pretty good. Still struggling a bit in the evenings but on the whole quite pleased. Tried some Terry's Chocolate orange and couldn't eat it, it was so unbearably sweet. So hopefully my taste buds are changing. I find a square of good dark chocolate is enough now.

    I did succumb to a bread roll the over day (circumstances and me not being organised). It didn't upset my stomach but it tasted awful. Far too salty and I could feel it lying in my stomach for hours afterwards, so again far too heavy for my digestive system.

    I think I'm getting there slowly.......

    Good that the sweet tooth is leaving you. I found the same thing. At first I wondered how I would manage with my coffee as I just couldn't take it without sugar. So I didn't have any for a few weeks until the sweet tooth went.
    Now, I can drink it without sugar no problem

    Keep it up. You're getting there!

    That cauli dish looks super, might try it on my days off.
    Had a little blip yesterday, if you can call 1/4 of a chocolate egg a little blip! It was only a small one
    Back on track today, omelette for lunch and steak, cauli, broccoli for dinner.

    We all have blips, as long as you don`t let it sabotage you completely, you have done the right thing going right back to this W.O.E. ,the longer you wait the harder it gets.

    Had a few bad days and out to lunch today, 1st May tomorrow, back in with a fixed plan, back to swimming twice a week and yoga class, I feel more committed when putting more effort in, hopefully the weather will warm up and that too helps.

    How has May started for everyone?
    I've dropped another few pounds and still doing well.

    Totally lost my sweet tooth and need for snacking, and that's a good thing!

    Not too bad, not great either, seemed to eat a lot yesterday, I am much better if I don`t eat before 2pm, but started early with kippers and poached eggs, then had an avocado with slaw, progressed to a pack of pork scratchings, made a sort of fat bomb and ate 2, an egg custard about 7 pm finished it off.
