Struggling with Cambridge Diet
I have a 7 month old baby girl and piled on4 stone during my pregnancy. I have just had my first weigh in after week one on the Cambridge diet. It has been a very long week. Out of the seven days on the diet I was 100% on four days and cheated on three days. I Don't think I am in ketosis at the moment because of the cheats. I still managed to loose 4lbs but am very disappointed in myself as this week should have been my biggest loss. I feel like a failure and am trying to be positive and tell myself I can do it 100% this week. I am finding the thought of not being able to eat anything for weeks very depressing! My consultant suggested I move onto sole+ and introduce chicken/tuna. Has anyone done this? Is the weight loss the same? I find I am fine all day but the evenings are the hardest. My partner is away at work for 6 weeks and I usually have friends over for dinner/wine in the evenings. I have avoided inviting anyone round to avoid temptation but I think I may be eating out of boredom in the evenings as I feel I can cope with the hunger. I am finding it a very antisocial diet. I have been invited to a birthday party tonight and a lunch tomorrow but don't think I will be able to go to either as both involve food and drink. I am trying to tell myself its only a few months of my life and then I will be happy with my appearance again. Has anyone got any tips? Anything to help me get through the lonely evenings?
