Pauline, I haven't read the whole thread, so I might be repeating what you've already heard. If you wish to lose weight, you need a lifestyle change, not a diet. 'Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're satisfied (not full)!'. Walk, walk, walk! Run up and down the stairs, be active - you don't have to be at the gym each day, just incorporate activity into your normal daily routine. Eat healthily - green salads, tomatoes, fruit, chicken, fish and one small serving with your main meal of potatoes, bread, rice or pasta. I agree with Katherine, and quite often don't have breakfast before 11am, when I have a bowl of fruit & nut Granola (Lidl's) with fresh strawberries/grapes, almonds & plain yogurt and a cup of tea. I might have tea & cake or a biscuit at 4, then dinner at 7. Good luck, Katherine.
