    If it is any help I can send you my food diary for the last few months. I have lost nearly 3 and a half stone now so it has worked for me so far. Although it might not suit you, it should be worth a glance.

    You will need to send me a private message with your e-address in it.

    Hi RR,

    Do you measure all fat or just saturated fat?

    all fat but I keep an informal eye on making the fat as healthy as possible.

    another issue for me has been salt - I never add salt in cooking or on food - haven't for years. However, am now eating much more processed food as it tends to be easy to measure and saves me cooking another whole meal as well as the family's food. I've always had good low blood pressure but was amazed to find it has crept up. After discussion with GP/Nurse I went back and re-read packets and am horrified at the amount of salt I have been eating. I mean it has gone up by literally 500% and more from my start point.

    Agree, I add no salt, if I do it is low salt which is very rarely. My blood pressure is spot on according to the nurse and cholestrol is 3 which is great considering how overweight I am and diabetic. That's why I have decided to start cooking again instead of buying meals. Have gone onto Quorn as it is so low fat. Had mince hotpot last night, delicious and much more than I would have got with a bought meal and it only came to 191 calories and 2.6g of fat. Weighed myself this morning and now down 1 stone. So really pleased with myself. What amazed me when I went last week for official weigh in was I had lost 3 inches from the waist. That to me was more satisfying than losing the weight.
