Healthy eating with no carb ideas please!!(6 Posts)
Hi all!! Im trying to lose my baby weight. Before I got pregnant, I was 14stone 4lb... the day before I had my baby I weighed 12stone 4...(this also happened with my first born, I seem to lose more weight than I gain in pregnancy.. )Anyway, this was 7 weeks ago. I'm now 12 stone 3 and creeping back up to my pre-pregnancy weight which I do not want! I'm now walking for 35mins on a morning to try and get the weight down but My biggest issue is not knowing what to cook. I'm trying not to have carbs on an evening but I simply don't know what I can make for tea that's healthy without potatoes/rice etc!! Can people throw at me what they eat? Thank you

Its not just about what you eat but how much! The right carbs are ok in small qty so a medium sized potato on the side is ok (or mixed in with a casserole) or a very small bowl of rice (40g) but try and avoid bread at all costs. I also found milk and cereal quite fattening too so now I either have fresh fruit (avoid fruit juice) or just a soft boiled egg.
You could also use other fillers such as sweetcorn, baked whole carrots, pulses to replace carbs.
