My new relationship with food starts today

Starting the 12 week plan today. I hope to lose weight, feel healthier, and get into the habit of cooking for me and my family.

Hope the knee mends soon. Well done on nearly being at the end of the twelve weeks. It's inspiring to see people's journeys.

Can anyone who is an expert on yoghurt tell me which ones to choose for less sugar ones. I keep reading about Total Greek yoghurts, Sainsburys do greek ones too. It's good that there is such a large range to choose from, but which would be healthy/low sugar and still be satisfying ?

Hi miopus. I am not an expert on yoghurt but I eat these - Total 0% Greek yoghurt is not only no fat but is high in protein so should keep you feeling fuller for longer. Also the Danone Light and Free yoghurts are 0% fat and 0% added sugar. They come in several flavours and I particularly like the peach and passionfruit one. Hope that helps :)

Total Greek yoghurt is a good choice as they have a choice of fat content and as Muffintop says, a good amount of protein. They also contain live culture which are good for your health.

Whatever yoghurt you go for, make sure it just contains milk as some "yoghurts" have additives in. You can add your own choice of fruit etc. Danone Light and Free have starch and artificial sweeteners in them, which doesn't make them a healthy choice for me.

I think Ski do a 0% fat 'fuller for longer' range too. Or they certainly used to.

Good morning RevJames 😊 The title of your post caught my eye and perfectly sums up what has happened to me, I have a totally different relationship with food 😊 I eat for health and enjoyment, if it's calorie dense I have less, and have come to the conclusion that some foods just are not worth the calories!! Lol 😊

You sounds as if you are in absolutely the right frame of mind for this journey, so very best wishes and I look forward to hearing of your success 😊

Thanks IndigoBlue61 :-) it was cool to go food shipping yesterday and come back having spent a little bit less but with more fruit and veg which I actually discovered I like more varieties of than I thought I did.
