I have been following a low fat diet and have lost half a stone so far.
This way of eating suits me very well and I can see that I will be able to maintain my weight loss quite easily.
My one weakness is Cake, I especially enjoy a slice after a long days walking:-)
So whilst trying to loose weight I have limited myself to just one slice of cake on walking days only.
I have also realized that I can make better choices to help my weight loss
