This last week, instead of following 'faddy' diets like I normally do, I stuck to 1500 calories a day (low GI as I have PCOS) and, to my shock, I lost A WHOLE STONE in one week... Had no idea I was carrying that much water... Shock

Will be interesting to see how it levels off this week... Won't be too disappointed to see a very small loss (or even stay put/have a small gain) while my body 'settles down' and I begin to lose the excess weight properly! Grin

4 stones, wonderful well done- so smaller portions, but no particular diet? sounds sensible, has it been a struggle or pretty easy once you got into it?

Apart for the alcohol?

ivykat44 I'm avoiding things like white bread, rice (except basmati) and potatoes, etc., at the moment - having things like baked sweet potato, whole grains, beans and pulses instead. I'm vegetarian and trying to increase the amount of protein I eat by finding New and Exciting (Hmm) things to do with tofu (I'm HOPELESS in the kitchen!) and eggs/egg whites.

As far as I'm aware, low GI foods are good for people losing weight because they keep you fuller longer, regardless of whether you are insulin resistant or not. :)

aristocat 4 stones is amazing - well done! Grin I miss swimming (used to be really good) and can't wait to get back in the pool again!
