Weight-loss Quiz Could Determine How Successful Your New Year Diet Will Be

About a third of all adults set themselves the goals of losing weight in 2017. Yet research has found that diet resolutions are most likely to be broken this week. So if yours looks as if it is about to fall by the wayside, it’s not too late to get back on track. We spoke to the experts at LighterLife, a weight-loss company that encourages you to look at your eating patterns and the emotional issues that inform them, to help you find out where you have been going wrong. Dr Kelly Johnston, head of research and nutrition at LighterLife explains: “By changing your mindset you can reset your attitude to eating, which can help you sustain realistic long-term weight loss.” The messages you pick up about food in your childhood go a long way to shaping your eating patterns as an adult.

    :] Hello all!
    I've been on ketosis for about 3 days (this being the 4th), and can't quite tell if I'm in Ketosis or not, even after a ton of Googling. I guess I'll start by listing my symptoms..
    No appetite
    Trouble sleeping
    Fruity taste in mouth
    Headache
    Dizziness the first 2 days
    Slight nausea this morning (4th day)
    My confusion is that I'm not thirsty at all, I maybe don't eat enough fats, and I do have a bit of artificial sweetener in my diet.
    On my first two days I have a craving for sweets, so I ate some sugar-free+aspartame free Jello which worked wonders, and I've been having very small amounts of sugar-free (less than 2% aspartame) Cranberry juice, which has 1 carb per 8 ounces. The most carbs I've had in a day since starting is 5, but I read that sweets could keep you out of Ketosis during induction. Do you think this is the case for me?
    Also, I've definitely been eating more fats than carbs, but I'm worried that I don't get enough fats. I'll say that my average fat intake is 1 egg, 1 piece of bacon, and 1 Salmon patty. Is this enough...or do I need to be gulping down all the fat I can get?

    I use ketone strips, usually find I'm not hungry. I have found that water is very important to weight loss, even if your not feeling thirsty.

    Hmm, I have been eating a bowl of sugar-free Jello (~2 cups of water) a day along with some pickles. I also drink about 1 cup of sugar-free Cranberry juice a day... You think that's kind of enough? I never could drink 8 glasses of water a day. Also, can I be eating too less fat to go into Ketosis...even if it's more than my carbs?
    Ketostix are on the way. Hoping for positive results.
