  • Personally I don’t believe in diets as such; Add more of the good stuff and eliminate the bad stuff (processed foods, sugar, bad fats, empty carbs). Maybe seek help of a Naturopath ?

  • Same sister! I’m against diets as they tend to help you lose weight while you’re on them but aren’t much help when you stop. Keep doing what you’re doing. Eating healthy all the time is so much easier to maintain then following a diet

  • atkins diet— a lot of people swear by it and very popular with the celebrities

  • It’s simple…More of the good and less of the bad. Once the balance is right the weight will fall off.

  • step up the workout by an extra intense 10mins
    salads, lean meats

  • Making sure you have regular small meals not to many carbs and lots of water is the best.

  • you are probably on a plateau just keep exercising to boost your metabolism again and keep those fluids up

  • isowey have powder and bars- they are good

  • The food I ate was healthy also but My problem was the quantity of food I ate.

  • I find it hard to not over eat so i had protein shakes replacing some meals – it helped

  • Do not be too I obsessed with the weight side of things, you may be getting fitter and building more muscle which weighs more than fat. As long as you keep up your cardio and feel fit is the main priority.

  • It sounds like a full blood test would be a good idea, to find out whether there are any underlying medical conditions that could be affecting you. It’s quick, relatively painless and it would be good to know what you’re up against, if there’s anything happening. Losing weight is a matter of expending more energy than you take in, and it’s easy to get disheartened when you plateau, or it doesn’t happen as quickly as you’d like it to, especially when you’re pushing yourself to exercise, and denying yourself treats. Try and keep at it, because it will happen, and before you know it, you’ll be trim, taut and terrific.

  • there are some good comments here

  • I did weight watchers about 10 years ago it was great. My issue was i didn’t eat enough to fuel my body and once i changed that and added more exercise the weight dropped off ( but i did have around 30KG’s to lose) it has now crept back on so looking to pull my books out again and start taking a diary of my eating to see what i have changed.

  • Have u tried working out aswell as eating well
