Try some fish

As we all know, it’s hard to subsist on soups and salads so try add some substance to your diet with fish. Fish is a great weight loss food. It is very low in fat and can be fantastically tasty if prepared correctly. Try this Crumbed Salmon recipe to give you some inspiration. If you are feeling like something a little flamboyant, try this Whole Baked Bream with Clemengold and Thyme Butter recipe.

Have dessert

Sometimes it’s really hard to resist those urges to snack and treat whilst dieting. So if you’re suffering and need a treat, indulge in this not so harmful recipe for a Raspberry, Lime and Mint Smoothie or this Banana Ice recipe.

Happy dieting and good luck!
