I've just joined and have read several comments in various forums, but you all seem to be in the US of A! Is there anybody out there from the UK I could be buddies with? Please don't take offense, I've nothing at all against all you American lovlies - it's just the terminology which is getting to me! Rolling Eyes Cups as a measurement for one thing - we don't use these over here. Also, there are so many references to types or makes of food that we don't have here, so it would make life a little easier for me to discuss familiar things! BTW I've just started the 5:2 diet (is this the same as the F2?)

My daughter has lost 4lbs in a week and already feels a lot less bloated and her tum is already flatter! It might actually help those who have lost quite a lot of weight but still have a tum to get rid of.

There are a few of us Brits round here.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

Thanks to all of you for replying, it's much appreciated. I'll take a gander at the UK members group and go from there. Good luck to everybody on the same journey - maybe IF the weather gets a bit warmer we'll all find it a it easier. I love salads of all kinds, but when it's cold, wet and windy outside they're not quite so appealing, are they?

Hi MizzyH
I'm British Smile and totally emphathise with the 'cups issue' - in my house, we have many sized cups and I know which ones I'd like to measure some foods with but I'm sure they're not the regulatory ones that the recipes refer to.
I am also a fan of 5:2 although I am doing ADF at the moment as I have a mini goal that I want to get to for 6th May and things were going slowly for me on 5:2..... but will revert to 5:2 when I get closer to my goal.
I don't live in Blighty. I am also a Turkish citizen and live in Turkey but I consider myself 90% English. Would love to connect with you Smile

Kelly: Buy a set of measuring cups, they are commonly available in supermarkets round me, but you can get a good set on ebay for less than £3.

1 "cup" is a volume measurement of 240ml.

Thanks for the top tip, Riocaz.
Unfortunately, I am not in the UK but that will be on my shopping list for when I go back!
