    Hello thanks for reading,

    I am new to this “diet” just wondered if these meals are allowed ,

    Roast Chicken Dinner, no roast potatoes or Yorkshires just cheken and veg, I assume OK ?

    How about Bran Flakes in the morning with a little SS Milk ?

    Lunch I normally have salad with a couple pices of lean ham , is that OK ?

    How about tea and coffee ?

    Thanks

    Hi dawks and welcome to the forum. Veg is ok but preferably above ground veg if possible-cauliflower, broccoli etc. Chicken is fine as long as you watch portion size. I tend to add herbs and spices to my chicken to give it some flavour.
    Any cereal is a definite NO. Too many carbs. Breakfast could be eggs or Greek yoghurt with berries.
    Salad is fine as long as you watch the carbs and the dressings.
    I think black coffee is best but I do add milk. Same with tea.
    It’s all about adapting the WOE (way of eating) to suit you so that it is achievable.
    There are loads of people on here with so much experience and advice so feel free to ask away……or just use the search button to find previous posts and threads. Everyone is supportive and non judgemental on here.
    Good luck

    Hi dawks. Chicken and veg are good; bran flakes not; salad with ham also ok. But there is a whole lot more which you can include and mantra is low carb moderate protein (so not a blank cheque to eat as much chicken as you can and some veggies are carby-er than others!) and healthy fats. Ham is processed so I wouldn’t want to eat that every day. Tea and coffee is fine but no sugar and count the milk. If you can tell us a bit more about where you are at (and whether you are diabetic or have blood sugar problems), where you want to get to, likes/dislikes, if you love home cooking from fresh etc I am sure you will get lots of suggestions and helpful tips! All best on embarking on the BSD!
