    Yep, sugar is bad. The key with eating fats is to eat small portions. I only consume full fat dairy, and can lose weight if I want by eating smaller amounts. Also you feel fuller longer eating fats.

    Sugar is bad. It's sucrose which the body can't covert to energy very well so just gets turned into fat.

    Your body needs good fat, your brain needs it to work.

    Always choose full fat options over light options.

    Ok so for Breakky I would add a piece of toast with avocado and spinach. I usually have two poached eggs with that. Up your veggie intake there.
    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.

    Are they the ones that look white rather than the hairy brown ones? I love coconut so that would be so much better than eggs. I have also found a breakfast with yoghurt, cream so might give that a go also.

    You should have a look at Christine Cronau website and facebook page, she has a lot of information about it there

    Fat is defiantly your friend in weightloss. Sugar and processed foods are what keep you fat, restricting cals will also not work in your favour.

    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
