Beware of hair loss!!
I lost three stone on the Cambridge Diet - I didn't notice my hair loss at first but my hairdresser did! He went mad at me! I took loads of hair supplements, used special shampoos etc. but none of it made any difference. Unfortunately, after this weight loss, I fell down the stairs and broke my leg, and as I had to stay immobile for 12 weeks, my 'kind' husband fed me pizza and fish & chips every night......
Yes, of course, I put the weight back on! I'd love to do Cambridge again as I know it works, but I promised myself and my hairdresser that I wouldn't - I don't have a great deal of hair anyway, and any loss shows. (To prove this, my hairdresser held up some hair the other day, and said that it had taken TWO YEARS for the new hair to grow down to the other hair!)
So, as much as I'd like to - I just can't! (It's so frustrating - it's the only diet that's EVER worked for me!)

When you did Cambridge before did you do Sole Source?
Maybe do step 2 810kcal so you're still getting a meal in the evening or even 1000kcal, the weight loss may be marginally slower but it may mean you can do the diet without the side effects.
You could always change your hairdresser.
Seriously, this is the reason you won't try Cambridge again? Because of the chance you'll temporarily lose some hair (and yes, it's temporary, and happens to a lot of people who have a sudden change in diet or undergo serious stress. Personally, I got the hair thinning you're describing when I first did a stint on Atkins (you don't actually go bald, do you??), but yes, it's happened to me on Cambridge, at around the 12 week mark. But it's grown back every time).
If Cambridge works for you, why not try it again? Or are you just looking for an excuse to stay three stones overweight?

not for my results (outcomes: the timing of the numbers on the scales)
Lost 5 and a half stones between October 2007 and April 2008 (doing Cambridge Diet). Unfortunately, many of the f*@!*#! found me again.

I would definitely take Lilly's advice. Lilly you are a star, seriously. The amount of times you have helped me (I was a different username before).
I lost 4 stone and had the hair loss thing and as Lilly said it is temporary I promise. This IS the best diet and it works. U have done it before please don't give u u did amazingly well. Good luck.
P.s what a naughty husband you have hehehe.
