So start of the new year and am trying to lose a few pounds ( aren't we all?)

Although I eat fairly healthily with main meals, I'm a bit stuck with the above, does anyone have any good ideas?

Breakfast;
Scrambled egg on wholemeal toast
Breakfast drink(s)
Porridge
Banana and yoghurt
Any cereal with low sugars
Smoothie recipe with more veg than fruit to keep the sugar intake down

Snacks - I don't really have snacks just bigger meals but here are some ideas
healthy popcorn
Handful of nuts
Fruit
Protein bars -Quest bars are good

Dessert - I wouldn't always eat dessert sometimes I just have a cup of tea or drink some water to fill me up

Yoghurts
Low sugar sorbet or fat free frozen yoghurt
2 or3 biscuits and a cuppa
Fruit
A small bar of chocolate as a treat if I've been strict
Or anything below 200 kcal with low fat and carbs

I don't drink any alcohol during the week. When I do I drink a slimline Vodka, soda and lime. If you drink wine be careful because it's so calorific.

I stick to a 5 2 diet. I always have a breakfast drink and water in the morning. On my 2 days off, I eat some of the things I've missed and then get straight back to eating healthy.

Hope this helps
