    Hi i am new too on day 5 also. I am eating cereal for breakfast. For lunch i have a wrap with sandwich filler and some low calorie crisps and for evening meals i have had things like chicken breast with sweet potato, uncle bens rice. I did have some lamb but think it was too fatty as i had an oily stool the following morning. If you get oily then what your eating is too fatty.

    Waitrose do a no fat crème fraiche, however I think low fat is OK, just check the amount per 100g. Try frying chicken breast, remove from pan but keep it warm. Add shallots and whole cloves peeled garlic & fry for a few mins, add tub of crème fraiche, finely chopped rind of a lemon, half pint chicken stock, juice half lemon,4fl oz medium sherry, black pepper & finely chopped tarragon, return the chicken. Et voilà Andalusian chicken!!
