I'm not that creative, I just try and eat something filling in the morning (porridge or eggs and slice of toast keep me full for most of the day) and generally will eat something packaged for dinner on fast days (like tinned spag/baked beans or soup, or a lean microwave meal) because they are clearly labeled and fail proof; plus, I like to deal with and think about food as little as possible on those days! I've read about people who don't eat at all on fast days, but that's not my thing
It took a lot of trial and error for me, I'd never really counted calories as strictly as this before, but I actually discovered the 5:2 diet on another thread on bubhub a while back (last year some time I think) and followed it and successfully lost a few kilos with the other ladies. Not sure if I can find you the link on my phone but I'll try. You'll find lots of food ideas and tips in it 😃
Trouble is im already pushing an almost 1 year old so the extra weight makes it impossible to steer. I can only do walks if I have the baby on her own.
It kills me because I'm such a walker but near impossible these days.
My official weigh in day is tomorrow but I can see im down a kilo which is promising. Im going to try to have a fast day tomorrow. I need to have a skinny latte in the morning because I have a horrible caffeine addiction and if I don't have one I get a terrible headache. I guess that's already 63 calories gone ! But I'm going to do your trick and drinks lots of tea and soda water.
