    I’m not overweight, I weigh 8 stone 5 and I am 5 ft 5. I don’t want to loose weight and I frequently exercise to stay as toned as I can. However, my diet is horrendous and I’ve recently started feeling awful because of it.
    I live off crisps, chocolate, processed chicken products and pizza, I’ve just started to cut all the pop out of my diet and I’m aiming to drink 3 litres or water a day.
    There isn’t one type of fruit or veg that I can bear to eat, (apart from apples) and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what I can begin to eat to be more healthy?
    Thanks !

    He usually has mashed meat and veg to eat. He doesn’t like potatoes, but likes toast, bread sticks and baby crisps. But what can I give him for meals? God finger foods would be appreciated too. I’m not really into processed stuff.

    I really don’t want to make frozen pizza all summer. So some recipes would be very helpful. :)

    I need to lose weight because I’m almost obese, and tired of being made fun of and insecure. I’m trying to diet, but I don’t see a difference. My diet includes: soda, cake, pasta, pizza, some veg’s and fruits, and I get some exercise (jogging, running, etc) twice a week.

    Like the healthiest might be meat-free, with tons of veg, low fat cheese on a wholemeal base.

    The unhealthiest might be beef and bacon with lashings of cheese.
    Can anyone beat my suggestions?

    Is it safe to use Olive Oil in the Episiotomy Affected Area? How Olive Oil help to cure the loss of Episiotomy? After 2 months of a full cut Episiotomy, only some pain has inside the affected area. Outside area does not feel pain generally, but if touch, it little pain. Should we put the Olive oil only on outside, or inside too?
