calory counting is shite and deprivation in my opinion....but, I suppose as in any healthier, lower calorific lifestyle....lots of salads,soups, and fatfree yoghurts.... but to be honest, if you like food but want to loose weight...join Slimmingworld...it works!
It's shite and deprivation in my opinion too, but sadly necessary, 3andnomore!
I'm not going down the fatfree/low fat route because I don't want to eat artificial/highly processed rubbish, but want to construct a number of reliable (i.e tasty and easily replicable) meals that will make it easier - short of buying M&S Count on Us meals and paying a fortune for the privilege.
Anyway, here are a few breakfast things I've already worked out, in case anyone else is interested:
1 boiled/hard boiled egg (large) 100 cals 1/2 tin Heinz beans and 2 (large) poached eggs 250 cals 1/2 tin Heinz beans and 1 slice Warburton's Wholemeal bread/toast 250 cals 2 (large) eggs, scrambled (made in a non-stick pan and with no fat) with 1 slice Warburton's toast 300 cals
lol Because...but if you do SW you eat lots of fresh foods...well, obviously if you wanted you could also find highly processed foods you could get away wiht, but SW does totally encourage healthy eating.
I'm actually struggling with the idea of going back to low calorie eating, tbh. I have been eating (mainly) low carb for the last 4 years or so. It works for me, but the main drawback - which I realise every time I go on holiday - is the fact that you have to cut out certain foods.
Low calorie eating can still include lots of fresh veg too!
it's just that Slimming worls is so easy, and you can really fill up, and especially if you like your low carbing, you can kind off do that, really....well...just do red days/original days... honestly there is no need for deprivation, there really isn't
