    :shh: Lynn. This is where I get in trouble :sad:

    I'm on a soup diet. Heinz do something called "big soup" which have veg etc in it. (I just had chicken and vegetable soup)

    I'm eating soup, brown bread, and fruit :)

    A soup diet sounds harsh! The problem with soup diets is that when you start eating normally again, you'll gain back the weight. Have you tried calorie counting?
    For example: start eating 1700 cals a day, then when the weight loss slows down move it down to 1600,1500 etc.. with a soup diet there's no where to go when the weight loss slows down and you'll get annoyed and might go off the diet. :unsure:

    Good luck! A soup diet is ok for short periods but make sure to take a multi-vitamin and try with a light exercise...doesn't have to be too much. Also, if you ever want to try, I've had great success with the "Scarsborough" (sp?) if I could only stick to that.

    Like Lynn says about calories, that is also calorie based but it has lots of good suggestions for variety. Maybe try that after the soup diet.

    We're with you! :hug: :smile:

    Good luck from me. By the way, if you exercise along with a diet the memory of the effort and discipline you summoned to exercise is a great disincentive to cheat on the diet. :clap::clap:
