To be finding it incredibly hard to diet in this weather

I want a magnum, I want an ice lolly, a cold coke, a strawberry ice cream. I'm on low carb, low sugar. I've just had a salad with chicken. While everyone else is buying nice stuff.

Anyone else struggling today.

Yep yep yep yep.

Cold beer and ice cream.



KingJoffreysRestingCuntface · 19/06/2017 14:44

Fuck all calories in ice lollies.

Eat the packet.


tessiebear4 · 19/06/2017 14:44

I'm the opposite - the heat puts me right off my food. Just imagine it all sweltering and surrounded by flies Grin


VerityHabitat · 19/06/2017 14:46

Ice cold Diet Coke?

The heat makes me not want to eat and gives me the urge to drink gallons of Pimms. Blush


Lindy2 · 19/06/2017 14:48

Diet coke and as many ice lollies as you want.
I'm finding the opposite. This hot weather makes me just want salads, fruit and lots of water.


OnlyLoveHere · 19/06/2017 14:48

I hate Diet Coke, I can't stand the taste.

Avoid ice cream and eat lots of lollies. Low cal. Or freeze some of your own. I find it easier to eat less in the heat because I'm too hot to eat.


waitforitfdear · 19/06/2017 14:49

No makes me want to just drink and not eat. Winter my greedy time. Ice lollies are fine


SantasLittleMonkeyButler · 19/06/2017 14:51

I'm finding it easier TBH.

Too hot to eat much. Also I can't eat chocolate from the fridge & it's far too warm for it to sit in the cupboard, so no chocolate buying going on Grin.


Aroundtheworldandback · 19/06/2017 14:51

Sod it just had a magnum.


PutThatPomBearBack · 19/06/2017 14:51

Ice pops are around 20kcal, I've eaten 4 so far today!


ChardonnaysPrettySister · 19/06/2017 14:52

I can't eat in the heat.


FurryDogMother · 19/06/2017 14:52

I'm low carbing too - cold raspberries and strawberries from the fridge with a massive dollop of extra thick double cream :) Also cold crustless cheese and broccoli quiche. Drink of choice is either water or iced coffee made with cold espresso, whizzed up with sugar-free vanilla syrup and double cream, served over ice. Tonight's dinner will be prawns in mayo with salad leaves, cucumber and a tomato, drizzled with garlic-infused olive oil. Low cal carb free bitter lemon is refreshing, too.


Bubblesagain · 19/06/2017 14:52

Yes! I ate a whole pack of fab ice lollies for lunch Blush


Rumtopf · 19/06/2017 14:55

I find it easier in hot weather as I just want salads and cold things.

Have just made some ice lollies though which were full fat Greek yoghurt, strawberries and a vanilla pod. Won't be overly sweet but will be cold, refreshing and hit the spot when everyone else is having a magnum later.


Iris65 · 19/06/2017 14:56

I lose my appetite when its hot too. But could easily drink thousands of calories! Trying to stick to water although I did have a glass of orange juice when I got home as I felt shaky.


Noofly · 19/06/2017 15:16

I'd also suggest fruit. I just ate my weight in cherries. I have half a stone left to lose and it's a bugger and refusing to budge. I think the heat makes it worse as I should be drinking even more water than I usually do.


Dawndonnaagain · 19/06/2017 15:17

Fresh fruit salad kept in the fridge. Alternatively, mini magnums?


Crispsheets · 19/06/2017 15:18

I lose my appetite in heat. Just eaten an avocado and tomatoes so far today


Eolian · 19/06/2017 15:21

Really? I find winter by far the hardest because you want comforting food. At this time of year, grilled meat and salad and fruit are great and it's easier to drink plenty of water. Ice lollies aren't too bad, surely.

Diet Coke is grim. Pepsi Max is far superior! Grin

I'm just shit at dieting any time of the year really; my cravings just change with the seasons. Have just munched through a punnet of strawbs though...


Packergator · 19/06/2017 15:35

I do like a nice cold salad. Iceberg, cucumber, tomato, mozzarella and avocado, all straight from the fridge with a nice sharp dressing.

This does sound good actually. But I'm doing fascist Slimming World, where avocados are about a million 'syns'... Sad

So tempted to just go back to low carb/healthy eating. But I need the discipline and accountability!


Tobythecat · 19/06/2017 15:45

I just had a custard slice from Greggs. It was delicious Grin. Now I fancy a white choc magnum.


WhatALoadOfOldBollocks · 19/06/2017 15:51

I just get cravings for stodgy carbs in the winter and chilled wine when it's hot. I could happily just drink wine all day at the moment.
