I've always been someone who struggles with weight sadly. I'm short and generally know my base metabolic rate is low, and so to avoid gaining weight in reality I can't have the same varied diet many others do, or I should have minute portions of it in order to ensure calorific balance, and then I'm left hungry.

I've never been highly active which adds to it, that 'buzz' people get from exercising has always eluded me. I'm asthmatic, I just feel ill after, even with inhaler use, so I never stick to it.

In the past, I've been able to manage my weight (to a point) with diet which allows one cheat meal a week. Unfortunately this also means I yo-yo a bit. I'm now in peri menopause and find that isn't working as well as it has previously. I always get motivated when I start to see the results, but it's so much slower now.

What's your best tips for a diet that leaves you satiated but helps shift the lb's even when your hormones are going haywire?

I've tried 5:2 in the past but failed because on fasting days I'd be up all night peeing, then make extra bad choices the next day. Slimming world worked for me several times, but even that's stopped helping :-(.

I'm the type of person that doesn't eat breakfast, so then I'm ravenous by lunch, and prefer a smaller dinner, but then I want to snack after that also! lol I do have a sweet tooth which doesn't help. More protein and fiber and less carbs is sounding like a good option to try. Anyone know of any good quick and easy recipe books for this please? I live alone and don't enjoy cooking for one, and also get fed up of a freezer full of leftovers... that's probably not helping right now! lol
