    I've not got much creativity so I'd like to follow a set diet plan to lose weight, but most of the ones I look at contain a lot of fish. I'm not too fussy with food but I really, really hate fish. I'm struggling to find any plans which don't have a dependency on fish, can anyone help?

    Tofu and veg? Turkey is incredibly lean too, so perhaps follow the plans that include fish but substitute turkey instead.

    Would you change your mind about fish if I told you that I've lost a stone in 19 days by eating fish for dinner about 6 times a week? Don't get me wrong, I'd be eating steak if it gave me the same results, but it doesn't, so fish it has to be for me.

    Can't you just substitute the fish for something of a similar calorie value? Can be anything you want. A chicken breast fillet?

    Doing it by calories rather than following a temporary plan is better in general IMO as then you can pretty much eat whatever you want — you just moderate the amount and consciously avoid unnecessarily calorie-laden meals.

    These habits will then let you keep the weight off, whereas if you go back to your old ways after 'finishing' your diet you will put it back on.

    I really can't touch fish; I used to like it as a child but as I've grown older I've come to despise the taste. I've tried different kinds and I just can't take to any of it.

    I guess I can replace it with chicken, but perhaps that would be a poultry overkill? Also, is it important to somehow implement Omega 3 into my diet considering I'm avoiding fish?

    Thanks for you help

    Fish is a really good for people who want to lose weight. I have been eating fish now for some time now and I have lost a ton of weight. But if you don’t like fish you can replace it with tofu or vegetables.

    There are lot of options available for using as a substitiute of fish diet in weight loss. We just need to take care that we are getting equivalent amount of calorie diet via substitute.
    We can use different protein ingredient such as, co-extruded soybean poultry by-product meal added with egg supplement, Terrestial plants and animal products which are easily available in world markets.
    Fishes are usually part of weight loss diet as they are excellent source of indispensable amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and generally enhance palatability.
    Substitues can be used at different percentages ranged from 0% to 100% replacement.
    Results with these substitutes on survival, percent weight gain and final weight and feed efficiency are found to be approximately similar to those fish diets.

    Eat less.

    There are no other secret to diets.

    You don't have to eat anything, except eat less.

    Got it into your head yet?

    It sounds like you are working very hard to improve your health and set a good example for the family. I am sure your scale will tell you shortly if your plan is working. The main thing is variety. You will get bored with the same dietary plan. I can see you are working hard as it is. Perhaps, there is a site that will help with the menu planning and food purchasing that is free. You could try fitday, join, but don't pay anything. You will find lots of help, and all that you input is completely private.

Since fish is disliked by many people natural supplements and herbal supplements are available in the market, which is equally good to be keeping the body healthy and reduce ones weight.
