    Good morning.

    I would be staving on that. I personally would bulk it out with loads of salad and more veg.

    Good luck x

      Morning Julie. I have started weighing my veg and having more veg. hopefully this time with potion control and weighing everything it will work I have also swapped what I have each day so my body doesn't get use to having the same foods. I didn't post again what I had been eating as I didn't think anyone was replying. I wish there was a more popular forum to go join.

      how are you getting on??

      It is a white paperback book with alli wrote in different colours , it explains the tablets far better than the GP does , its based on tbe weaker strength ones but is the same diet
