New me new life

Hey guys

Started healthy eating again as I have hit my peak with my weight I'm 17.5 stones, i am getting married in 4 months and need to loose 21/2 stone for myself. I'm starting to make smoothies with only 4 fruit at the moment and I will be adding veg and more fruit in the future. I have just started a physical job so it's kinda given me a kickstart. I'm gonna be hitting the gym and start running, can anyone help me start a food plan for myself please and thank you 😊

Hi Jldavies,

What is the physical job you have just started?

Has your doctor suggested carb counting?

Hi Joel,

Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage. Have you seen the Healthy eating pages on NHS Choices? There is also information there about the NHS 12 week plan, so worth a look, and the NHS weight loss forum is also a good resource, in addition to this forum on Healthy eating, so lots of support here:

Wishing you success with your goals.

Zest :-)


Avoid processed foods & anything containing artificial sweeteners. Foods described as low fat & low sugar tend to have a lot of chemical junk in them, so stick to natural wholefoods foods.

In case your weight issue is hormonal, avoid soya unless it's fermented, & raw cruciferous veg in your smoothies. Try adding a grapefruit, including the white pith, it improves the digestion of fat, as does a spoon of organic apple cider vinegar before meals.
