    My goodness you used to eat more than I do in a year:eek:. You seem to like what you're doing already, so just do what you think is best then.

    yep my diet was literally shocking so even with the baguette and crumpets (althouth i dont have them every day) my diet has improved a lot and my cal intake has gone down a lot

    Something that may help you in the long term, is to think of the nutritional value of food before you eat it. If you get into that mindset, its easy to eat healthily and have a balanced diet that will lose you weight and keep it off.

    For example, crumpets have next to no nutritional value, compared to other snacks you could have. Examples: carrot sticks/wholemeal pitta bread dipped in houmous, fruit (my favourites are grapes, oranges or tinned pineapple to snack on) - they fill you up just as much but are much much better for you and arguably more tasty!!

    Go for wholemeal bread instead of white :yes:

    Every 7-10 days you are supposed to have a loading day - day in which you take more carbohydrates so you have energy. But junk food is no good. In the loading days you can eat complex carbohydrates. However a little junk food won't do tremendous damage I guess - we are not pros here!

    If your weight fluctuated as much as your rep, you'd be laughing. Last time I saw you, you were in green, now you're red. Wtf bbz?

    HEALTHY FOODS THOUGH. High nutritional value and low GI.
    I'm sure you know what is generally good and not good for you.

    When you go shopping be sure to remember that.

    Okay, I've never heard of that before lol.

    So thats 5/6 months[ish] on and off and you've only lost 9lbs? Thats really not very good. 2000 calories is too many idc what that thing says, if you're serious about losing weight you'd manage on less.
    Yeah sounds really weird. I lost that in a few weeks.

    Surely if you were under in terms of calories that would be a good thing, as it would cause you to lose weight more quickly?

    Regardless, you can still get all your calories from fruit :confused:

    i dont want to lose weight too quickly, as ive said i dont mind how long it takes as long as it comes off and i would rather lose it at a slow pace as theres more chance of keeping it off

    I don't know what you mean by saying you'll be having an unhealthy meal a day so you can 'keep on track' :confused:

    You'll only keep it off if you make permanent changes to your diet, lifestyle and mindset. If you adopt the changes I suggested you will lose weight more quickly but still at a steady rate, and not re-gain it because the changes you will make will be long term.
