    Veggies that do not need to be cooked would be the best. Such as lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, celery, etc. You also need some grain such as oats. Broiled fish would also be excellent. You need a combination of food groups, not just one group. Also be sure to supplement your diet with a good multi vitamin. AND WATER WATER WATER as much as you can drink.

    Fasting is a process normally associated with going with out food for a period of time, it sounds to me you are just choosing to eat once a day. This is not a good way to loose weight as you metabolism with slow down, think about eating 3 or 4 small portions of food each day as this will keep you metabolism and fat burning at an optimum. Fasting only puts your body into starvation, this boils down to it giving you less energy to do stuff and when you do eat the body will try to store as much of the energy from the food into fat. So morning meal, very small portion of non sweetened breakfast cereal with non fat milk, 2nd meal about 11 to 12 o’clock, a fillet portion of chicken with on portion of veggies. 3rd meal, 3 to 4 o’clock maybe a health food bar 100 calories or so. 6 to 7 o’clock, half a tin of soup with one slice of wholemeal toast. If you get hungry in between any of your meals always carry a bag of carrot sticks with you to which you can snack on. Also with any of your meals you can fill up on as much broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower, all healthy and low in calories. The most important thing about long term weight loss is exercise, with out this you will not maintain a healthy weight. You should be looking at an intake of 1000 calories per day whilst dieting, nothing less other wise your weight loss will not be optimum and you will just put it all back on eventually. Never aim at loosing more than 2 pounds per week. you should be looking at weight loss over you lifetime so even at loosing 1 pound per week you will still loose 2 stone in just 6 months.
    Good luck and keep it healthy.
    P.S. It may be a good idea to take a multivitamin and mineral supplement to make sure that your body is getting all the goodness it needs.

    Not eating is your problem. Eat. Your body needs it.

    And read every single word Martin said. He’s 100% factual and 100% correct.

    I agree with Martin. Eating small meals four or five times per day and exercise is the way forward. One thing Martin, shouldn’t we eat more protein than a chicken breast and a little skim milk provide. I eat 50 grams per day (I’m 76 kg’s) and many people say it should be double that amount. Any ideas?

    Eat Healthily and Give Your Body Time to Recover
    It takes up to 6 months after pregnancy for your body to return to normal. So even if you are not breast-feeding, don’t be in too much of a hurry to cut calories. Apart from the physical trauma of giving birth, which itself can leave you feeling exhausted, looking after and being responsible for a new baby can be very stressful. It will require all your energy – especially as you get to grips with “night-feeds” and all the other demands of a new infant! So rather than focusing on “weight loss”, concentrate for the first three months or so after the birth on eating healthy food with enough calories and nutrients to give you the energy and nutrition to cope.
