    Unhappy Help coming off solesource after a 3stone loss in 13weeks

    Hi everyone ive had some bad news , my partner is being made redundant next week so will no longer be able to afford to stay on the cambridge plan , hoping its a temporary situation as im doing so well [3stone loss in 15wk]. Got two weeks worth of products left and was wondering whats the best way to come off the diet without piling all the weight back on ? any tips or advice will be very welcome xx

    Oh no! What a shame! Sorry to hear your sad news. I hope he gets a new job soon.


    I think I would do two products a day with two protein and veg meals for the first week then add in some carbs and fruit the following week. If your only having two products a day you might get 3-4 weeks left.

    Good luck.

    week one- 17 1/2 pounds week two- 4 1/2 lbs week three- no weigh in week four- 11 lbs week 5- 5 1/2 lbs week 6- 4 lbs week 7- 1 lb week 8- 10 lbs week 9- 4.5 lbs week 10- 3.5 lbs wk 11- 2 lbs wk12- 6.5 lbs wk 13- 2.5 lbs wk 14- 2.5 lbs wk 17- 3.5 lbs wk 18 - 5 lbs week 19 - 5.5 lbs week 21 - 1.5 + week 22 - 4 lbs week 25 - 2.5 lbs

    Have a chat to your consultant, now, rather than the end of the week, then you can plan on what you have, and what if any you can afford.

    I'd come up the plans slowly but be sure to limit my calories and carbs a bit for a while - you can still lose weight at 1000-1200 calories, especially if you limit your own carbs as much as possible - so meat and low carb veg / salad. You could do your own porridge - be sure to weigh a small amount for calories for it, and write your own plan.

    You will still have the ability to move forward and save money on food too. Porridge for instance you can buy in a big bag rather than a box - it's the same stuff just not ground up as much as cambridge is.

    Really hope your OH is back in work soon but try and keep a positive outlook 3 stone loss is fab!!

    There is slim and save as well which I have known a number of people to go to when they can no longer afford Cambridge. Sorry for your news...that REALLY suck, especially the timing.
