  • Hello,u could try cooking with soya products,there are wonderfull yuoghurts,creams,puddings,sour creams etc available just be carefull as 1 in 3 babies with milk protein allergy are also allergic to soya.U just have to try and see.Tesco sells even dairy free chocolate and it is yummy.Then eggs,hoummous,peanut butter,Pure spread,rice milk.wheat milk,even mayo is milk free.U can do caseerolles with meat and vegetables,quick frittatas,bolognese,fish fingers,anything really.U can find lot of recipes on the net or get a book if you google allergy cookbooks something is sure to come up.As for the other question,lol,I am not the 1 to advise,as lot of extra weight here!!!!!!!!!!

  • Did you get given a leaflet with postnatal tummy exercises? I did and was back in my size 8's in two weeks!! one of them is you lay on your side and tighten your abdominal muscles whilst breathing in, hold for 10 secs, then breathe out and rest for 10 secs. repeat this 10 times. I usually did it 2-3 times a day and theres lots more! maybe 'google' postnatal tummy exercises? And during the week I am pretty good with food, Wholemeal cous cous and rice noodles are both low fat and very filling... And lots of fish and veg xx
  • I have cut down on my portion sizes, used to match oh before. At first I still felt hingry after but now I'm used to it and couldnt eat more if I wanted too. I've also cut out snacks, so have 3 meals a day but nothing more.

    Good Luck.
