Hi, i stumbled across here whilst trawling the net for some information.
I had decided at Christmas that i would make an effort to change my eating habits. I do find it hard as i am a cook by trade and my partner loves to eat. So as you can see this is a great recipe for overeating!So we are both going on a heather eating plan. I have not joined a group or club, I am sensible enough to know what is good & bad. I am lucky that my work colleges are very encouraging. ( we have some very sporty people where I work). I am working on 1500cals a week and i have joined a boot camp, and work out 3 times a week. I use MYFitness pal to track my calories. I find this a great tool to use and it is a free app. I must admit that my shopping takes longer now a days as i scan packages to see if it is within my limits, and lets face it, you want as much bang for your buck as you can get.
I do someday go a little crazy (but not often), but the next day i pull it back. One week i stayed the same, but i knew why, as i went to visit my family for the week end and ate out two nights in a row.
I think sometimes a lot of information is floating around that makes it difficult to make sense of. Like drink a glass of coconut water every day and the pounds will fall off???? Dink warm lemon infused water each morning and it helps burn the fat off????
Anyway I am looking forward to joining discussions and reading everyone's story to inspire me
