  1. I'm looking for advice & ideas from people who've been though this - I am currently just 7 weeks pregnant and for the past couple of weeks my appetite is very changed and pretty much gone. I don't have issues with nausea/vomiting (yet) but seem to have stopped being able to eat all my usual favourite foods. I used to love eggs for breakfast and piles of broccoli, Brussel sprouts & green beans with just about everything; I used to get very excited about a huge salad with chicken & olives... now none of those things appeals to me and all I want to eat are very simple carbohydrates (porridge/oatmeal, even white toast (!), today what I really fancy is a cinnamon bagel ). My appetite is completely gone in the evenings, I am just not eating the food I prepare any time after around 14:00 each day. My question is, what have other people had success with? I accept that I'm not going to be doing any kind of fully compliant W30 for now but really do not want to subsist on white bread for the next 7.5 months!

    Biona coconut milk is compliant and Asda sell it, I think it really is just a case of reading labels though

    1. eggs and mushrooms (carrots and an apple later) 2. chicken & massive salad w/ olives, left over cooked veg,, onion, tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, etc. 3. chicken (again) wrapped in parma ham with chilli & garlic roasted peppers, mushrooms & onions, maybe a sweet potato? 25g of mixed nuts bike = 10.5 miles walk = 5 miles

    hmm..... not really getting back into things after the holiday, maybe a 14 day reset from Monday will help.... (very bad) example - today's food: 1. half a coffee & a 5 mile run (not breakfast or pre-workout at all...) 1.5 fage yoghurt, oats & honey 2. OMG actual ciabatta & salami.... (bloated and sad now...) 3. steak and veg so 1/3 meals constructed to be tasty & healthy, 1/3 most certainly not (ouch)... Monday 29th July - Sunday 11th August = w30 loveliness for me

    Can I have Vidatea teatox?

    'paprika is made from goji berries' I don't think Paprika is made from goji berries...

    Just a thought - given that W30 is not necessarily a weight loss plan, could it be that the small increase in body fat is actually an health improvement? 9.2% body fat is still pretty low....
