I would like to lose around 1.5 stone but I am stuck in a very carb heavy diet. Any help and suggestions would be helpful!

Today I've had:

Breakfast -plain weetabix (2). Breakfast I often skip but if I do have it it's normally bread based!!

Lunch - prawn salad (lettuce sweet corn cucumber tomato and carrot). This would usually be a sandwich but I'm now going to avoid bread

Dinner tonight - typically would be shepherds pie and veg or spaghetti bolognese

Snack is normally a chocolate bar which of course I'm cutting out.

I also drink 2-3 cups of tea or coffe a day

I'm in the same situation as you. I'd love to lose a stone. Minimum!

I struggle to cut out carbs, as I find in always hungry

@ForTheLoveOfDoughnuts I love your name btw 😂

I'm constantly saying I'm going to start tomorrow but enough is enough, I NEED to do it. I just really struggle to come up with carb-free meals!

And like you, I always end up hungry!

Thanks 
I struggle mostly with lunch. I'm in my car a lot, so sandwiches are the easiest.

I need to find a good amount of carb free meals or low carb. I'm lacking inspiration at the moment.

Have you thought of joining WW?

I'm on my 3rd week and have lost 7lb so far

I do the online only which is £25 for 4 months then if you don't cancel changes to £12 a month after that

I've found it really good, I did slimming world before but I do think I'll lose more on WW as it encourages low carb

Interesting! I didn't want to fork out with the risk of it being s**t haha. I'm so tight .

I also thought it was more expensive than that!

I thought the same as slimming world was £4.95 a week

I think it's cheap At the moment as they've rebranded
