    Another who began on WW/SW but got fed up with the points/syns system. I'm just sticking to under 1400kcal or so per day. I've only been doing it for a week or so but already feeling good and not deprived at all.

    Great I wish you continued success.

    I did a lot of research on diet and tried various approaches. The habits that have stuck;
    1. Having half a plate of vegetables with each meal
    2. Having eggs for breakfast
    3. Cutting out carbs in refined/potato/rice form. I dont moderate vegetable carbs so still get 40-60g carbs a day but it is all veg (carrots, radishes, peas etc).
    4. Not snacking more than once a day
    5. Smaller plates. So silly but it works.
    6. Exercise. Got five minutes? Do some. Feel tired? Workout.

    The half plate of veg came from slimming world I think but I didnt like the whole group thing. I have the advantage of loving veg. I also try and eat 5-10 different veg a day.

    In dec I weighed 220lbs (5'9"). I am currently 190lbs. My target weight is 165lbs.

    The exercise has really helped my MH as well as tone my body. It is weird when your legs change shape though!

    I didn't follow any kind of "plan" other than eating less of what I already ate.

    I think it depends on personality...some people like being told, "eat this...don't eat that". I don't like rules, I don't like being told anything is "forbidden", and I like flexibility in what I eat..

    Ditto. This is me as well. I don't put any food entirely off limits. Anything I want to eat I eat, and deal with the consequences. I have lost ~49 lbs with basic calorie counting.
