Most of the vegetarian recipes that I have ever looked at on any web site has very expensive ingredients in them does anyone out there have simple good healthy vegetarian recipes with ingredients that I can buy in sainburys that are easy to find on the shelves. I am a busy mum of 5 havent time to go through recipes books so would appreciate any tasty recipes for main meals mostly or lunch time meals. Please send them to my email address many thanks Joan

Set up food groups in the tracker. If you eat a certain meal often, it makes it much easier to track. Add all the foods in the meal to a group, then you just need to track the group.

Yes, tracking what you eat is very important as I was quite surprised to see how many calories I was consuming. Drink plenty of water also.

I agree. Record every morsel. It takes a while to "get" how the tracker works. I never eat what they have down, so I end up looking each food up. Eventually I learned to put a lot of my regular foods into favorites. Just struggle through, and you'll pick it up fast. I really like entering every thing. It's shocking what calories are in certain foods. You can see what a food is before you eat it too.

go under ' my trackers" My Nutrition. that is definately the best place to start. Just look up the food you eat and check the portion size. sometimes you can't get the exact food but I look up the nutrition value and see if it is close.. or similar to the nutrition information on the package of what I just ate. try to stay within the calorie recommendation. if you can get a little exercise in like walking or other activity the weight will start to come off. WELCOME AND GOOD LUCK! emoticon

Start by tracking your food.

It can be very revealing to see what you actually consume every day. Then make changes to improve.
