I want to eat healthily as a forever thing so I have decided to change the way I eat and cook, mostly that means less takeaway and microwave meals.

I always do same calorie counting, I find it logical, effective and I lost 15 kg with it 4 years ago, 15 kg again this year (after pregnancy) and have a few more to go.

I do a lot of research i never do faddy diets endorsed by celebs that make outrageous claims. I have only tried weight watchers and slimming world, both also came recommended by friends. WW wasnt for me but SW is great.

I dont really class what I did when I lost 3stone a diet as such, I counted calories using MFP and lost 3stone. I ate what I wanted, when I wanted in moderation and increased the amounts of veg/fruit. I kept on increasing my activity levels, but didn't over do it.

Due to various factors, I put the weight back on, but using MFP just wasn't working for me, novelty wore off maybe? So decided to join SW for a different approach, and thought the emphasis on eating plenty of food, but the right foods, so not feeling hungry following the plan fit the attitude I have toward "dieting".

I chose to join the SW plan as it seemed to show better longer lasting results.
