    I would say Wowsers I would be hungry on that lunch ! So maybe add in something more substantial so you are more full?

    I eat soup with Pitta or sandwiches with cream cheese or Swiss cheese with salad - for dinner I have veggie burgers / sausages / pasta and sauce / tortellini with sauce or home baked pizza / jacket potatoes with beans or light sour cream .

    I can say I haven't had a head ache at all on this diet other than having a cold I tend to fill up on coffee and Diet Coke until the next meal .
    Well done on heading off to the gym good luck !

    I'm going super slowly. Cut out snacking at the moment and vegetarian option at breakfast and lunch. Next month I intend to cut breakfast Monday-Friday as husband would not be happy if i cut the weekend too! Hoping to start exercise then as well. Perhaps take it one step at a time? Hopefully less likely to feel it then?

    Another day, another slow start to the LE PCOS diet -

    No breakfast, cup of coffee with skim milk, lunch is a Roasted Cauliflower Biryani I made - cauliflower, carrot, white rice and some curry paste.

    I am wondering people on the alt LE diet - do you have breakfast? I was thinking maybe a smoothie could be the way to go?

    Thanks for the tip about the fruit infusion herbaltea, that sounds like a perfect option to me!!!

    Atomic, what do you think about Liptons fruit infusion herbal tea, the ingredients in one of them (summerfruit) are: Rosehip 40%, hibiscus, arom, blackberry leaves, strawberries 0.9%, 0.9% raspberry, maltodextrin, would that be ok to drink one tea bag with a lot of warm water (light tea in other words) with a sandwich to dinner and one cup in the mornings? I will also drink a lot of coffee, like 4 or 5 cups a day.

    Mine was

    Lunch: leek and potato soup fruit

    Dinner: veg stir fry with wholewheat noodles and hot sauce, and a yoghurt

    I have an exercise class tonight so might do a 3rd meal tonight to bump up cals.

    I have struggled with no snacking - I think I do this without thinking usually!

    I am starting this diet wholeheartedly again, so here is my intake for the day so far:
    Lunch:
    Baked potato with a bit of margarine, a chicken leg, and a cup of hot cocoa/coffee mix (can't do straight coffee yet) and 2 handfuls of pretzels.
    Dinner:
    Stir fry veggies, rice and a small amount of chicken (I know one of my kids will not eat their meat, so I will eat that)

    The no snacking is my downfall. I keep catching myself snacking without even realizing it. At least last night I ate only one oreo cookie instead of a handful.

    Are veg stir fry like carrot, water chestnut, haricot beans, broccoli, red onion
    baby corn, corn, peas and parsnip unlimited like other vegetables (if I don't add any fat when I fry it)?

    The vegetables (veg stir fry, corn and peas) I had for lunch today was like 14g protein and 270 cal. Should I count them or are they free like other vegetables?

    I've been using frylight for stir fry to stop any sticking- used to only ever use olive oil when conceived DS.

    Shanshaff- the same as me I was worse if my kid left food on his plate as I hate waste!

    That doesn't sound much! I feel like im eating less but don't seem to be losing much. Does anyone else have this issue?

    My DH just tried to offer me a slice of buttered toast I think he's testing me lol!
