Low carb works well for the whole family. My husband loves it because the majority of meals are mostly meat.
I don't think you will be able to do it if you don't eat eggs. They either make up the bulk of my meals scrambled, fried, or as an omelette or I eat them boiled as snacks. I can't imagine you will be able to eat low carb without eating eggs.
Are you having success with ww? Why not stick with that, then you can have your museli, fruit and yoghurt.

I did low carb last year (before falling pregnant) and it worked really well for me. I followed the bodyTrim diet, which was really good because it helped with portion control as well for all of us.

It's not true that you can't eat fruit & do low carb. Yes fruit has carbs, but it's not processed food. I lost a lot of weight by basically eating in a paleo way. I wasn't that strict, but cut out grains as much as possible & sugar & processed food. What I ate was fruit, veggies, meat & seafood.
I reduced dairy - not because it's high carb (I think it's higher in fat than carbs actually), but it's not something that many of us have adapted to digesting all that well yet.

Look up Whole 30, it's a gentler LCHF, which does work but I prefer eating a bit more fruit.

Low carb has worked really well for me over the last 20 weeks or so. I am not weighing myself because other times I have found it very disheartening if I wasn't shifting any kilos but I have dropped a dress size and a half since October last year and am now a 12/14 again I have heaps of energy and am not falling in a heap by the end of a working day anymore!
I didn't plan to do low carb - I just started cutting out processed food and food that didn't make me "feel" good - for example, I love bread, fresh crusty bread but would often feel tired, bloated etc afterwards so I ditched bread from my diet and other things just followed.
So breakie now is two boiled eggs and some cooked tomato, lunch is chicken or tuna etc and heaps and heaps of crunchy veg and dinner is protein of some sort (prawns tonight) green vegies or salad and I while I still cook potato etc for the family, I just don't have it. I eat fruit during the day and loads of water. Milk in my coffee but that's the only dairy.
I also walk most days, or swim if I can.
Good luck, it might be worth a try

Thank you for this!

Whoops couldn't get the multi quote to work!
Well done! I don't have scales either so I am just going to go by the way clothes fit I think. We are not in the position at the moment to have scales under our roof so it is my best option I think.
Exercise I also have to fit in as well. At the moment I am increasing my incidental exercise by parking a good walk away from the school, gardening etc.

1/4 cup flax seed meal
3/4 cup almond meal
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chopped dried apple
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla essence
The diet I did said no cows milk, soy is lower in carbs, but it is up to you. Maybe almond milk?
Also, I used to make these pancakes:
1 scoop of protein shake powder
1 scoop almond or hazelnut meal
Makes 1 large pancake. Serve with butter and berries or stewed apples. I found a sugarfree faux maple syrup in the supermarket at the time but it was a bit ferral.
