Yes me . Day 1 done yesterday. Have done it before and lost loads of weight but it has crept back on.

I am a similar age and just want my energy back.

how much do you want to lose ?

Please swap the zero fat yoghurt for full fat, you need the fat if you're reducing carbs!

Sincerely, a long-term low-carber who's maintained a BMI of 21 this way and still loves and enjoys her food.

There's a few things in there that are high carb and will completely undo your good work.

Bananas
Shredded Wheat
Honey

All very high carb. Even things like carrots and milk are high. It is a great way of losing weight but so very easy to go wrong. If you look at one of the bootcamp threads and find the starting instructions it'll give you a really good list of what to watch out for.
