Back to the drawing board

I managed to complete two weeks of this programme and then I decided to try the famous dukan diet and I have only shed a kilo in two weeks .

So here I am again coming back to some sensible 'diet' and will continue with this as it didn't feel like I was on a diet.

I will still continue with the couch to 5k programme and see what happens.

Curious to know what people think about breadsticks and crackers?

I have those as snacks as they fill me up.

Hi pinkbow,

Actually, half a kg a week is 1.1lbs, so is nicely within the recommended weight loss rate of between 1 and 2 lbs a week.

Breadsticks and crackers, depending on type, usually have a fairly moderate calorie value (check the packet for details), but unless you're having something with/on them, they're a bit low on overall nutrition value by themselves.

Good luck with your weight loss journey.


Hi, I'm complaining about this because it was suposed to shed kilos in a week. But after that nothing happened.

Last two days I noticed I can't stay with my 1400 daily and I go over and feel more hungry than usual. Do you have any tips on food that are good and filling?


Keep carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions. uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...

Eat low GI carbs glycemicindex.com/

Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods
