me too smile

so tomorrow it's protein for brekkie, soup for lunch and low fat dairy all the way, plus whatever exercise I can incorporate into my daily routine....

I think that is it, but also seeing them proving it works made all the difference
don't forget to make your soup creamy

different diets suit diff. people IMO and E. That's why Paul Mckenna is best!

this wasn't about dieting, but using some science based approach to eating

I felt sorry for that lady who was overweight and couldn't understand why. When she kept a food diary that recorded 1100 calories but her wee showed she'd eaten 3000. She looked genuinely shocked, its scary that someone can eat an extra 2000 calories without realising it.

I agree with you VivaLeBeaver, but portion control is failing most all of those who are overweight
I know it did for me and caloriec counting opened my eyes to what I was really eating

No you're right Kayah but P.M. is not a diet as such it changes yr attitude to food completely.

i found it really interesting but what got me was when they did the dairy bit, they didn't explain what they had cut out of the diet. If they had 2 weeks of exactly the same food, calories and fat, but week two was dairy rich they must have cut something out to keep it the same amount of calories. Could have just been portion size but they didn't say.

I thought this was excellent.

I've seen it before - and I really like the advice. I don't want to diet again, and it was really refreshing to have some new ideas.

Today I've concentrated on protein rich meals, and definitely haven't felt as hungry as my normal carb troughs.

Great documentary- sort of thing BBC does really well.
I couldn't remember all the tips- come across this article that summarised it quite well. t_Losing_Weight_Putting_Theory_Into_Practice

seen it before but always good to refresh brain

its amazing that a meal made into soup keeps you full for longer

may whizz up my sunday lunch tomorrow grin

I just watched this on catchup tv and am feeling very inspired by lots of the ideas.

I know that whenever Ive had protein reakfasts I've felt full for longer, but the problem is they are all things which need cooking, ie eggs, bacon, and I don't have time to do that in the week.

Can anybody give me any ideas of high protein breakfasts which you can either make ahead or don't need to be cooked?

I've been doing a 'poached' egg in the microwave and having that on soy toast for breakfast. Also adding ham (not bacon)
