Please could you post a vegan equivalent of the week's menu?  I use soya milk instead of cows milk, take no honey, meat, fish, quorn, egg or dairy.  I can't just swap all of the meat or fish options for tofu without knowing what quantity of tofu is equivalent to each meal...  Many thanks

My god, you might get skinny but you'll never have any satisfaction from eating this diet and eventually give in and let rip on all things bad. ...... but good luck if your giving it a shot!

Melon is good -low in calories, and fills you up. Salad is also good-just keep eating and eating and you will soon feel full. I recommend James Bond's famous  salad dressing * which is low cal and you do not need to use much as it has a very strong and aromatic flavour.

(*Ingredients: 1 part extra virgin olive oil to 6 parts balsamic vinegar, 1 large tablespoon of English mustard, 2 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 large tablespoon demerera sugar. Must be shaken and not stirred)

Just to repeat the comments below. It would be great to have a vegetarian/vegan menu too please.

If you don't mind being constantly hungry this diet might work, but if you're an overweight runner you are most likely carbohydrate intolerant/insulin resistant in which case you should cut out the carbohydrates. Do that and you can eat plenty of fat and proteins, never get hungry and you won't gain it all back when you get tired of being hungry. I've lost over 3 stone this year and at 56 I'm well on my way back to running at the pace I did at 26. I am vastly more healthy than before, never get hungry even while running and fasting simultaneously. Don't take my work for it though, listen to Prof Tim Noakes describing his own experience. Tim suffered from allergic rhinitis, headaches, poor eyesight, gastric reflux, IBS and low energy. He got rid of all the symptoms and his glasses and he runs faster in his 60 than he did in the previous 20 years. Here's a great 17 minute interview ... required viewing for nutritionists. www.youtube.com/watch

I'm such a fussy eater that I don't like many of the things on the menus but I will give it a go and just pick the things I do like . Bit scared to eat 1800 calories!

I've just done a full week of this plan - substituting where necessary - and I have lost almost 4 pounds. At first I didn't think I would lose anything the portion sizes are enormous but I have never been hungry. Looking forward to seeing the results next week - I'll change some of the herbs and spices and substitute some of the main meals with other recipes that are on the site, I've already tried the teriyaki salmon and it was delicious, just so it doesn't get boring :)

I've only just started running really and am using the ease into 10k app so currently on 4 mins jogging, 1 min walking which I do every other day, is this enough to be eating 1800 or should i reduce the calories further for weightloss as I'm not running continuously yet?

I too am a coeliac and I also need to prepare meals that are speedy, being a mother of two young kids with a full time job; there is little time left to be imaginitive with my food!!!  I see the link to Tesco Diets but I've joined there before and always found the allowance too little (1200 calories, even if you join the fitness element of the plan).  For me there really should be a way to combine the diet and the fitness element more thoroughly with Tesco diets, which would give all of us with dietary issues more flexible meal plans . . . it would also allow us busy mothers to take advantage of the 'diet to your door', where you can get all the ingredients for the next week delivered to you door - it is a real blessing!  I shall also be passing my comments on to Tesco.

As a non-wheat eater myself I can answer that one for you: most supermarkets now have a very wide range of wheat-free products, and most of them are pretty tasty; wheat-free pasta, bread (Toasted it's nice, avoid untoasted as it's got about as much moisture as sand in the sahara...), wheat-free pitta's, wraps, crisp-breads and crackers, you name it! All can be well substituted with ease! The only one I can't help with is the cous-cous... But I'm quite sure a bed of rice would work just as well! As for vegetarian options surely just changing the meat for quorn/tofu/fish(if you eat it) is acceptable? I think the kind folks at the running bug couldn't possibly cover every dietary need (unless they were really, really bored...). Just use a little imagination ;)

It's surprising how many people are veggie/vegan or don't include wheat or gluten in their diets and yet sites such as this one - which is generally excellent - are still poor at giving options to the standard meat/fish/gluten-containing meals in the diet plans. Come on RB, with all those experts at your disposal, help us out. Thanks :)

I like the look of the menus, but as I am both wheat and dairy free I would have to substitute a lot of things.

I realise that I am doubly awkward, but it would be nice if some diet plans actually took into account that there are a large number of wheat free people (both due to coeliac and IBS) out there.

Is there an alternative you can recommend to bread in the menus? I struggle with bloated stomach and feeling sluggish after any type of  bread andso don't run well, wraps are fine but this wouldn't offer the same nutrition would it, nor does it seem the same as having toast for breakfast? I'm sure this isn't uncommon.
