I have decided to drop the extra bit round my belly!! I am getting active again after a yer with problems - shoulder/back and then broken arm - but am really enjoying paddling (kayak) and cycling again in groups. So exercise does not present a problem: I expect to cycle twice a week and paddle probably once a fortnight. Occasional swim thrown in too... 1 km a time.

How low is the LC in the LCHF Diet?
Try Doctor Mosley for the low carb diet stuff. I have cut out all pure carb excepting for whole rolled oats in my porridge in the morning because oats are 'slow-burning'. Avoid processed food, eat high quality protein and vegetables. Whole fat greek yogurt. 2 pieces of fruit but avoid trpical fruit because it is very sugary. Avoid processed food: try to eat fresh meat and vegetables excepting for the occasional smoked salmon, or bacon (with fat cut off), haloumi... make sure it is a portion only at a time. Avoid high cholestral fats but dress salads with dressing which use olive oil... good fat. Avocado is fine... fatty but good fats. Snacks... nuts (yum). Measure them into 30g portions and put into little freezer bags to make them easy to carry. Avoid cashews though because they are high cholestrol. That's about it for what I have learned in the last few weeks... Mushrooms, leeks, eggplant, any greens... great in quantity with lean meat.

Looking for a good plan
When I had a bad back last year I went swimming every day despite the fact that it meant quite a drive to the pool. It was very remedial for my back and eventually I got my balance back and the back improved. I swam slowly but for half an hour every day. A visit to the physio to discuss exercise would be a good thing too.
Yoga is a great thing especially if you have an experienced advanced teacher who knows about remedial yoga and how to protect injury.
Walking is the simplest and most available.

It's gonna work this time!
It was creeping up on me... I only have to lose 20 pounds but am finding that patience is a key. 2 pounds a week is a lot. The big one for me was giving up wine: becoming a non-drinker who takes a night off abstinence instead of drinking most nights with only occasional nights off... had to turn my attitude to drinking upsidedown. Occasional night with a glass or 3 of wine now instead of regular drinking.

When I've done well for 3 weeks or so I give myself some social days off. I still eat responsibly and still fill out my log but aim to have only an even balance for a few days so that I can 'rest' for a while. I get back to the diet because I want the scales to start going down again. I think if I pushed through without those occasional rests I would 'binge' and fall off the rails!

Lean pork loin. Chicken breast from free-range chicken. Smoked salmon - yum!! Eggs of course. Frittata is good to get your veggies too and easy to make. John West tinned bean and fish snacks/small meals (in Australia anyway).
