Here is a little bit of background. I'm 22 and I managed to put on almost 2 stone in one year. After trying to get on lighterlife (and just missing the required weight to join), I decided to ditch the fad diets and focus on a simple calorie shortage. I've been dieting for about 2 months now with the occasional hiccup and so far have lost 1 stone and 4 pounds so I'm proper chuffed with that, now in the ideal bmi range.
I'm starting my internship next week and am going on holiday in 11 weeks so I'm trying to be strict until then to lose a little more. While I'm now in the routine of running or going gym three times a week and am used to having 1200 calories, I am focusing now on those 1200 calories being home made meals full of fibre and protein rather than ready meals. And as someone who doesn't really like fruit, getting my 5 a day is a real challenge at the moment.
With my healthy eating, I'm also trying to use as many of the eat4cheap recipes as possible. Is anyone else doing this? Any tips?
