  • Hi lathe,

    I'd like to wish you a Very Happy Birthday for Saturday. :-) Hope you've got something nice planned to celebrate. :-)

    I know you're hoping to lose some weight before your hernia operation in July/Aug time, and wondered if you've had a look at the NHS Choices 'Healthy eating' pages - the NHS 12 week plan is worth a look, and there is also another forum called 'NHS weight loss' which might be worth joining as well, to give you additional support - they do lots of weekly activities and weigh-ins.

    Here's the NHS Healthy Eating pages:


    Good luck!

    Zest :-)

  • Thanks so much for the birthday wishes and the advice, will give them a try.x

  • I've just had a look at this nhs site and see some great recipes but I would just caution users not to use an of the seed oils in the recipes; that's Rape seed, or Sunflower seed etc as they are not healthy foods. Use olive oil in every case but try to avoid over-heating it.

    Enjoy your food, life is to be enjoyed. Tibbly
