  • Hi forgottenit,

    It's still possible to eat too much of the right thing, so maybe have a look at your portions sizes. It can be quite an eye-opener to see the amount we should be eating, compared to what we're actually eating.

    It's always worth a looking at the timing, type and amount of carbs that you're eating, too, as they can be less than friendly to us, especially as we get a little older ;)

    See if there's anything thing here that you'd be able to do

    I hope this helps, all the best :)

  • I have reduced portion sizes, also changed main meal to lunchtime rather than dinner.also have stopped eating fried foods(my husband now thinks am trying to poison him by not eating the same,lol) I have changed carbs to mostly rice or rice based. Thank you for your reply

  • sorry but your link only does england

  • Whereabouts are you, forgottenit?

  • I'm afraid we don't get the same assistance up here, but if you scroll to the bottom of the link page and click on NHS Scotland, you can do your own research :)

  • Hi forgottenit,

    Welcome and I hope that you will enjoy being part of this community - it's a friendly and supportive place, and I hope you'll feel more positive as time goes on - it's great that you've decided to post.

    Best wishes
