 That actually helps me a bit so thank you. I want to lose some weight but with the whole pku thing I just wasn't sure how to do it and stay on the diet. So much of the 'diet foods' are high in protein but i am really trying to keep my phe levels as low as possible.

I think I'm going to try just the natural foods now rather than looking for specialised weight loss foods. The only issue i think i am going to have is getting excercise in at this time of year. its constantly raining. but i guess where there is a will there is a way…
