Weetbix are a pretty meh breakfast. Not a lot that does anything for you in it.
Morning tea is fine as long as the yoghurt is natural and not one that's full of sugar. If it is cut it out and replace with maybe a green smoothie or a Greek yoghurt, banana and berry smoothie?
Or some nuts? Or boiled eggs if you haven't already eaten them for Breakky
Lunch is fine as long as it's a clean homemade curry/pasta using fresh ingredients, meat and not a lot of packaged food.
Also brown rice or brown pasta.
Otherwise quinoa is a great substitute for rice. It's packed full of protein.
Afternoon tea try and add some protein in
Dinner seems fine. My dinners are fairly normal I just choose alternatives. For eg quinoa over rice, sweet potato over potato etc
Always remember protein with every meal
Carbs are GOOD! Your body needs them! Just choose low GI (wholemeal/whole grain) over high gi (white)

I just wanted to point out that "brown" doesn't necessarily equal lowGI. I'd read this but it was confirmed when I had GDM and I could actually see the results of my eating on my BSL.
But generally wholegrain/brown varieties do keep you feeling fuller for longer as they have fibre plus they haven't had all the nutrients stripped out, so are definitely a good choice. Just a common misconception that they have lower GI than the white varieties.
Approx. 1800 calories and less than 10g of saturated fats. That was a slow and steady weight loss for me that was easily maintained afterwards as it changed my eating habits by being conscious of hidden sat fats. The fats I found to be the main thing, then checking the carbs and sugars levels on food products.
I just went t9 christines website but she doesnt give much away on what fats to eat.. I guess u have to buy her book.
Can anyone give a quick rundown of what she means? As in she says saturated fats are fine.. doesnt that mean like fast foods too? I understand not getting reduced fat milk and yogurt but im still confused.. ah why so hard now that im old. When I was young I never had to do a thing
