    Hi Tracey, try padding each meal out to make near 15g's of fat because you need it to make you go to toilet and also, it will teach you how to eat reasonable meals, each meal so that you don't inge later on. Thats what I am hoping to do smile

    hi kaymarie

    thanks for your advice will try to up my intake of food,but find it really hard without going on the fatty foods.

    i didn't used to eat food during the day,i used to skip breakfast,hardly anything for dinner,then i used to binge in the evening,thats why i think i've put on loads of body just went into survival

    trying to eat a much more balanced diet now,but finding it really hard.

    but i will go on your advice and see what happens..

    thanks so much

    Hi Tracey,

    You certainly need to eat more meat - this is my daily food intake

    Breakfast - Porridge with skim milk and fruit

    Mid Morning - Banana

    Lunch - Ham or Chicken salad sandwich or salad with ryvitas, Activia yogurt (fat free)

    Afternoon - usually have another couple of pieces of fruit

    Dinner - Chicken casserole, mashed potatoes and veg or small piece of salmon with new potatoes and veg

    If I'm hungry in the evening I will snack on sugar free jelly, Meringue nest and a small scoop of ice cream, but not every day.

    I do also allow myself a biscuit from time to time and sometimes have a milky way or something small on the chocolate front.

    Hope this helps you and good luck.
