DH and I are doing a healthy eating plan and it's actually working!!

DH and I have been actively trying to be healthier for about 8 months now. In March we both started going to the gym at least twice a week and trying to eat more healthily. However, after initial weight loss we both reached a plateau in about September and were getting really fed up.

However, about 3 weeks ago DH was given a healthy eating plan by his personal trainer. It's recipes forbreakfast, lunch and dinner and you can pick from a few choices fit each meal. I was initially sceptical... But do you know what? It's working! DH has lost about 2 kilos and I have lost 1 kilo after doing it for 2 weeks :) i can put some of the recipes here if anyone is interested?

I had something like this from a personal trainer. It was really good in the 6 weeks I stuck to it and a lost over a stone and felt much better. But then the summer came and with all the bbqs and parties I fell off the wagon. It was quite low carb (although had things like quinoa, sweet potato etc) and I didn't feel hungry or crave stuff. I really should get back to it!

It sounds a bit similar, @Titsywoo :) I think it's not meant to be long term as it is, but that we are meant to carry on using at least some of the recipes each week- which I can see myself doing tbh

Hi @Gilbert82, so here is the breakfast shake we have been using. Quantities are for 1 in this one. We make it without the almonds as our blender is shit Grin but i find it really filling anyway

Then there's this lunch which is basically fry the chicken with the red onion, olive oil, lemon, garlic and rosemary and add everything else. This makes two portions.

And this is a dinner example. Sorry you can't see the method but you boil the root veg and broccoli until soft, set aside, fry onions and garlic in the same pan then chuck in with the other veg and the rice milk and mash with a stick blender. Right at the end grill the fish (we use cod or haddock or anything white really) and serve on the mash with some lemon juice and salt and pepper.

These are just examples but I can pm more recipes if anyone is interested. What I like about it is that you feel full (in fact it often feels like I'm eating too much!). You can also snack on a handful of almonds and cashews once a day and a piece of fruit once a day

To all those who have sent me PMs, I am struggling to send the recipes as they are files on my phone. I'm going to have a go from work today (I'm not in the UK so it's morning here). Bear with me! Sorry!

Can I just point out if your Dh was given this meal plan by his Pt it’s either been designed pacific for him and his goals with the macros and whilst it’s working for you at the moment it may only work for a while.

In which case it’s pointless giving it out unless the individuals you’re sending it too can adjust it to their own macros.
