Just tried overnight oats, really nice as snack.  Just did it with almond milk, strawberry jam and blueberries.

Overnight oats are great and there's so much variety you can have. I usually have them with almond milk, chia seeds, peanut butter and cinnamon. Tastes amazing.
nice to soak then in apple or orange juice them a dollop of Greek yogurt with your fruit, nuts seeds etc.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Aye, just a bit too much liquid and the consistency can be terrible. I like them with coconut milk, some frozen berries, raisins, ground flax and cinnamon - the flax helps thicken it up nicely.

Yeah, it’s brilliant. I’ve done 72 hours once, which felt fine.

I think we’re conditioned to eat way too often.

About 20 hours into a 24 hour fast here. Feel great. :lol:

Spicy spal bol with wholewheat pasta waiting on me at 12:30. :notbad:

Nice one.

None for me, can’t nail the diet as usual.

My diet was pretty bad before so some modest changes have had an effect.

Cutting out dairy has been huge.

Up to 3kg lost now.  Simply down to a better diet and hardly any alcohol.  Haven't done much exercise, but felt very weak and lethargic recently.

Lost 12 pounds since new year. Doing good, just need to keep it going. Feeling good at gym, getting 5 workouts in a week.

Diet isn't perfect but defo is better.

I've lost the same. Targeted 2 stone from New Year 'til the start of the cricket season. At the gym 3-4 times a week when I can (childcare/work)

My diet is a lot better than it usually is, which is helping. Workload at the gym has improved massively as well.

For people who have actually changed, was there something mental that allowed you to actually do it?

This is what I'm looking into now, because no matter how much I think I want to have a healthier lifestyle I can never seem to really stick it.

Not drinking all month has helped  :lol:

I've just been focused a lot more on gym, once I'm in the routine of work then gym, it feels a lot easier.

Its happened to me every year for the last 3-4 years.

Lose weight Jan-May, go on holiday and then never get back into it. Cricket season finishes September and I usually do f*** all else other than eat and drink til Xmas  :lol:

I keep telling myself I need to do it in January. The JD gym opening up within walking distance is a Godsend so hopefully this year can be different.

I've cut out bread during the week, then will have like a couple slices of toasted tiger bread with millennial topping on a weekend as a treat. Not lost loads cos I've a minor injury which has, until just now, prevented me from getting into a proper exercise routine, but I can sense a difference from going breadless. Less stodge, more todge. Hehe jk if only tho amirite

Good progress so far this year but I'm on holiday in a couple of weeks and I thoroughly intend to eat and drink anything I fancy. Challenge will be getting back into a proper routine after that. Have stayed off the booze no bother.
