    Thanks, i'll take a look. I thought it might be the diet thing you have to pay for. I started using a similar thing the other day which is free, but it's hard remembering to fill it in!

    Tesco changed all the diet thing recently, so you get stuff for free now!

    I'm not that keen on calorie counting too much either, though it helps some people.

    Looks good, similar to the one I started to use (which was American I think Dramatic Star!). I don't think i'll use it for now, see how I go just being generally healthy! I'm just worked out my BMR and then from that how many calories I should have etc, it's quite confusing!

    Kirsty, at the moment I've reached 30 points, however I've only consumed just over 1,000 calories. What are the points calculated on? Is it a number of things combined?

    Was that weightlossresource (or something along those lines)? I found it incredibly annoying as a lot of the foods wern't on there & what is useful about Tesco Tracker is it has the actual product instead of the food, e.g. Heinz tomato soup not just tomato soup which is great because differeny brands can vary in nutritional values!

    It was http://www.fitday.com/. It did have makes of food but they were mostly American, though you could enter your own.

    I'm not sure - Its not something i've really worked with. Although i believe its not purely a calorie thing. I think its worked out on high fibre, and low fat and perhaps lowish calorie, will have lower points, and the opposite have higher points.

    I would probably use calories, rather than points to watch your diet by, but thats my personal preference.

    Someone asked about cup a soups. I have Tesco thick & creamy tomato soup in a mug (that's the name on the box), they are a bit thicker than normal ones and very nice!

    Does anyone know if Morrisons sell any own brand yogurt with no bits? They used to do a french smooth set yogurt but they don't seem to any more. They do do their own brand normal yogurts in a pack but I don't know if they have bits in or not?
    They do smooth healthy ones, similar to Mullerlights. I bought some lasttime I was there [3 for 89p or something]

    I'm still finding it difficult to get up to my target 2150 cals a day. [sleeping for half the day because I was kept awake last night doesn't help], I've had toast and jam, as well as the rest of my homemade yog and fruit, so ive had about 5-600 [I had 4 slices of toast and my fruit and yog was a good sized portion]

    I'm hungry now [kinda on the border between 2 and 3] so I'm going to have some chilli con carne with potato wedges and salad. Might treat myself to some skinny cow too

    I didn't look much at the individual ones. Do they say smooth on the pot?
    I know what you mean, getting up in the afternoon means i'm not eating as much as I would/should though I think the chocolate I ate helped bump it up lol!

    You know this HIIT (have I spelt it right?), does it apply for swimming, say doing a few laps fast and the ones after at a slower race etc?

    Haven't been since they put the second floor in though, mainly because at home I'm 5 minutes walk from Tesco Newton Aycliffe anyway :p:

    I've been in the one at Stockton too [where the Savacentre used to be, on the road towards Sedgefield]. It's HUGE!!!

    And, random fact: Tesco Kingston park is the biggest supermarket in the UK! Not been in though.
