Nhs diet plan followed

Ana20001 stone


I somehow followed the Nhs plan but didn't keep record of everyday calories but had following routine

Breakfast: a cup of tea with medium bread piece

Lunch:Salad bowl

Dinner at 6: chicken piece with vegetables

Walk+running: 35minutes(around 8000steps per day)

2litres of water

No crisp/chocolates/biscuits

Had chocolate cake slice hardly once a week

I have lost about a stone in 2 months .Is it a sensible weightloss .i am just worried as either I lost weight due to this routine or is there any other medical reason I should be worried about.

I was size 14 now I fit in size 10

I was 65kg before now I am 59kgs (age 28)

Thanks in advance for your replies

Hello Ana2000 and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum

Without knowing a little bit more about you I couldn't say if this is a healthy weight loss or not. The rate of loss is perfect if you are overweight and trying to lose fat, but the amount you are eating doesn't look like enough 😕 Please have a read of the suggestions below and ask if you have any questions

Here are a few suggestions on how to get the most out of the forum. Please note if you are using the new HU App many of these features are not available so I suggest you use the full website version.

The first place to look is at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and move through to the challenges, where we hope you'll find at least one that will appeal to you. Move down to the Topics, to find a variety of threads, collated into specific topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted as long as the calories are accounted for. Don't forget to take your starting measurements and a 'before' picture, as they can be very motivating on days that the scales refuse to co-operate

The forum also have group weigh-ins every day, as well as a new Daily Diary, if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page. And if you just want to chat, to say hello or share any news or struggles then look out for What's Happening Today thread.

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you have a 'Newbie' badge. We've found that to get the best out of this community, we need to be active on the forum, as it's where we exchange information, get motivation and inspiration and make friends. We hope that you'll join us here, regularly, too. If you have any questions please just ask

Best wishes


The food portions look little, especially for breakfast and lunch. Don't starve yourself otherwise you cannot sustain the weight loss. All the best!

I suggest you put your details into the NHS BMI calculator and see what calorie range it suggests for you :)

Wishing you all the best on your journey :)

That is really not good Ana2000

As I said above, that is not enough food.

Opt for more satiating and nourishing foods that keep you full and energetic all day. Aim to have some protein at all meal times.


Hi I don't think you eat enough either to be healthy as I can't see you are getting enough nutrition from your diet. If you are feeling weak this could be in part due to the lack of carbohydrates in your diet. These provide energy and the only bit you are having is the bread. Try having more potatoes (they are not fattening unless you load them with butter or cheese) and definitely some fruit every day. You might also find protein such as eggs for breakfast will give you energy and make you feel fuller. x
