    Welcome :D

    It is confusing at the start but it gets easier to understand.What i do is just pick the healthier option of everything.and eat less than normal.

    Good Luck

    Hi Dawn and welcome

    I gree with Clare, to pick the healthier option. Ive found it easy to be honest, as I've always gone with low fat foods, nibbles were my downfall. But now I've cut them out and these tablets really do train your mind in what you eat, which to me is the whole idea to change our eating habits and stick to healthier.

    If I feel a bit peckish between meals, then I'll have fruit or a couple of ryvita with a bit of jam on, and that keeps me going till meal time.

    I'm sure you'll soon get the hang of things, keep positive and keep coming on here, the support is great.

    xx
