Pros and Cons.
This message might be a little jumbled, just cause that's how my head is right now too.
I'm torn between doing CD or plain old calorie counting..
The pros & cons of CD for me are:
o It's a definite way of losing weight pretty instantly, no messing around trying to find the perfect calorie number.
o It's strict and regimented which I like.
o I could possibly lose the 5 stone I have to lose within 5 months, in time for summer.
o I have a sweet tooth and really like the shakes.
o Drinking water, not a huge fan.
o Consuming nothing but shakes for a long period of time.
o No treats or days off.
o Worry about exercise - I've recently started back at the gym & am really enjoying it and don't wanna give up, but I'm concerned that working out will hinder my weight loss & I won't get big losses.
o Maybe only losing 2-3lbs a week which I know I'd lose on calorie counting.
o Hair thinning or losing hair, and the bad breath.
Somebody please help me make my mind up?

This is the only diet that works for me. I get bored of calorie counting after a few weeks and the. Gradually go back to eating how I did before. I like to cut food out completely and retrain myself how to eat properly. After week 2 it's easy and the bars are delicious! It's your choice though. X

Tough decision to make.... I did ss for 8 weeks and lost a stone and a half. Shortly afterwards I developed gallstones and had to have my gallbladder removed ( could be due to the vlcd it is in the listed side effects. ) also my hair thinned a lot. I piled the weight back on not long after and was back to square one. I joined slimming world in January and have lost half a stone from just changing the way I cook. Not really a calorie counting diet to be honest I'm enjoying it! Having said all that I have a friend that did cd and she lost the weight and kept it off. So it's all down to what you think you're capable of really.
