    gosh that seems like an awful lot of food ?

    Also how are you managing to have corned beef? according to my list it's over 13g's per 100 and you should be sticking to things 5g's or under per 100g's.

    You are going on Full fat and not just saturated fat ?

    My usual day looks like this...


    Bowl of either corn flakes or mini shredded wheat

    a sprinkling of blueberries

    0.1% milk, or semi-skimmed (depends if I'm at work, as semi is all they do)

    White Coffee

    occasionally a muller light yoghurt


    1 x packet of Spice Sensation Cous Cous (Ainsely Harriott)

    1 x Mullerice

    1 x Snack a jacks (either caramel or berry)

    1 x can of diet cherry coke


    Typically either homemade chicken and sweetcorn risotto, homemade pitta pizzas with grilled chicken, Grilled chicken sausages (from the butchers - very low fat) with cous cous and beans, weight watchers cod and wave oven chips, tomato and chicken pasta, beef stew, vegetable soup, chicken and veg. One of them :p

    In all honesty, I'm actually not sure I get enough fat each day... I haven't lost weight in a couple of months now - I eat well, everything is really low fat, maybe too low.

    Oh forgot to mention, 1 x raspberry actimel each morning.
