When I eat low carb, (which I tend to turn to every couple months) I miss bread. Not sliced bread but good bread. I love the bread at Salt Grass and could eat my weight in it-- which is probably the reason I need to low carb diet!

I really miss bread and potatoes both. I ate a lot of sandwiches before I started dieting. When I did cook, it wasn't a meal without meat and potatoes.

I've never stopped taking carbs. I've just reduced my intake in terms of portion sizes. I tried stopping for three weeks and it was a disaster for me. Less carbs and lower sugar intake is working for me.

Cutting back on bread and crackers is a real challenge for me. I can have a low calorie dip scooped up with a carrot stick or a slice of green pepper, and it is delicious. However, for my third scoop I crave a cracker!

I still eat it but limited. Always believe slimming world unlimiting some stuff is madness. x

Wobbles - I keep following you around lol

I agree with you about slimming world giving the red light to eat as much as you want of certain foods. It doesn't make sense to me. From reading your posts I know you've followed the sw diet so I'm just wondering what you did to speed up the weight loss? I struggle with my weight and want to see faster results then an 8lbs weight loss over a period of 4 months I would be happy to lose 2lbs a week though

I lost 2-4lbs a week at first on SW. I followed most of their rules apart from unlimited potatoes, pasta and rice, I limited. I made a few other changes:
Lurpak lightest
Less coffee
Used sweetener
I swear by green tea (I have it with a slice of lemon and 1 sweetener)
I had salad every second day
I reduced red meat to once/twice a week
I had 3 meals a day
Ate dinner earlier (5-6 rather than anywhere from 7-9)

I turned to calorie counting and at some point I hit a plateau so I upped my red meat and started losing again.

I've hit plateau again and atm not sure what to do, I stopped eating breakfast again so today I started with a small portion of bran flakes... I was sometimes skipping lunch again unless I went to the gym when I would have chilli scrambled eggs when I got back but I am back on the protein shakes today for lunch/after the gym

Hope that helps? x

Oh, for me it's Gnocchi pasta! If you ever have it made fresh from an Italian restaurant, then you will not want to leave that place. I have to pull myself away from walking into these places!

I miss chips. I also miss frying potatoes. There were so many satisfying things I could do with potatoes. I miss greasy french fries. I loved eating french fries.
