Jayd, how long have you had your Thermomix?  If the 12wbt challenge recipes are doable in the Thermomix, anyone with a bit of experience should be able to adapt some recipes but without seeing any of the recipes myself, I daresay not many would be.

I wouldn't leave your email address on your posting, you leave yourself wide open to spammers.  People can contact you via pm through the forum if they wish to respond to your enquiry.

Good luck with the challenge.

There's a 12wbt Thermomix group on Facebook, where some of the recipes have been converted and members discuss the best way to convert recipes. It's a secret group though and you need to be added before you can join. PM if you like and I can try and add you.

I agree with Judy, if you've had your TMX for awhile and are comfortable converting recipes, the 12wbt recipes are easily converted.

I start 12wbt on monday! I'd love to be added to the secret group Katie :)
From what I've seen I wss thinking my TMX would be on light duties for the next 12 weeks so would be very interesred to hear otherwise.
Have you enjoyed the 12wbt Katie?

I have done some of the 12 wbt over a year ago and most of the recipes are quick to make anyway and you can't really use  TMX for. I am part of this facebook group too but I can't say I see too many people converting anything on there.

I agree, a lot of the recipes are quick and its just as easy to cook them using traditional methods.

There are quite a lot of conversions on the FB page, under "files".  They only show ingredients and not actual amounts, as to not infringe on 12wbt copyright.

Jam I will pm you...

Thanks Judy that was quick information thank you.
Think it is a bit expensive for me.
I have Michelle Bridges recipe book and the CSIRO books which we use a lot and have had success with weight loss over past 5 years.
Thought the 12 wbt might give us a boost or inspiration. So not for us.
But her recipes are great.
Good luck to everyone one the journey.
I would love to hear how you get on.

Bootobethin I love the CSIRO books. I lost 30kg with those. I have put back some of it, but have  lost 3kg very recently with the help of my fitbit. So another 6-7kg and I will be back to what I was then. It took me about 2 years to lose the weight so I hadn't too much trouble keeping it off. It doesn't make me slim by any means but I only want to be a healthy me, not s super shapely one. A nice healthy, round , pudding is my shape.

Cookie, DH and I lost some weight with those books too a few years ago.  I still use the recipes and the books are a bit tattered! I love them!
I decided to try the 12wbt due to the exercise component which I know is my problem! I've got 5kg I want to shift since starting a desk job last year.
DH and I are really enjoying the food so far... I've done it exactly by the "book" /web so far and have lost 1 kilogram in 3 days! I wonder if it will keep going!
