Sorry I haven't had contact for a week. I've been really busy at school and with interviews for teaching jobs for 2006.
Anyway, it's been 1 week exactly on the CSIRO diet and I've found it so easy. I've even lost 3kg, which is really motivating. It has been a little difficult eating 100g meat for lunch every day but am getting used to it and it is a lot easier now. I find it easier if I cook hot meals from their recipes and heat them for lunch, rather than trying to eat a sandwhich which contains 100g meat.
I haven't broken once (amazing I know, especially for a choc-o-holic) and instead of my two glasses of wine I'm allowed per week, I can have a 40g chocolate ( an easy trade off!)
I decided to start with the meal plan for a week before introducing exercise. Tonight, exactly a week after I started the eating change, I commenced my exercise routine. I walked at a high speed on hill setting on my treadmill, for an hour and even did some sit-ups.
I have finally found an eating plan that's easy for me to follow and that seems to be working. I've had no headaches, am not hungry and do not feel deprived of anything.
This is a lifestyle change for life and I AM going to lose 16 kgs before Christmas!!
Good luck everyone, stick with what works for you and don't give up.
