    The dietis in no way natural aswell, you cannot even go and eat honey and dates which is sunnah. It is not a way to live.

    Why because you are reducing (not removing completely) your carb intake?

    How much honey and dates do you want to eat?

    Losing water weight is absolutely pointless, infact it is counter productive.
    I drink more water than I have ever done. That was even before the change in what I eat.

    If you stick with it over time it has lasting effects.

    What do you eat? Your wife does it too (iirc). It must be easier to change eating habits together.

    I don't feel like going full-keto. I need roti. I've been eating corn flour and millet flour, and they taste nice. Alhamdulillaah.

    Best to keep the door fully closed inshaaAllah.

    Alhamdulillah, it's really good to have us brothers and sisters making these efforts to improve.

    Jazaa'akumullah khair everyone taking part and and helping keep this going. Baarakallah feek, SR Indefinable. It's been a very useful initiative by the kindness of Allah Ta'aalaa. Alhamdulillah.

    (Maybe going forward, inshaaAllah, we can even start other things similar or of a slightly different nature possibly...)
    Yes exactly. A little leads to a lot. And more often.

    I was thinking of 'Couch to 5k' which is a 9 week running program.

    Not sure how others will feel about it, especially since it's colder here (UK). It can work on a treadmill too. But you only need around 20-25 mins a day for this.

    And there are other challenges like the Plank/Squat 30 days challenge. Or the no-Caffeine challenge (something I will probably struggle with).

    Now I eat in the main chicken, eggs, salad, fish. Not had a curry in weeks. I started eating some extra stuff because I don't want to lose too much weight. We wanted to change what we eat so it's easier to digest and better for us.

    I'm carrying an injury at the moment but when I recover I will start exercising so it will probably mean I can add in the odd roti here and there.
    I see. Protein keeps a person full for longer.

    May Allaah grant you a speed recovery.

    And yes if you both do the change as a couple it's much easier.

    Alhamdulillah. Yes, a tiny bit more info than needed from sister but there's a lot enthusiasm coming across from some of the posts which is always nice to see. The weight loss mentioned a few pages ago(?) was excellent, alhamdulillah. Do keep going.

    (Allah Ta'aalaa keep us all steadfast.)
