4 days in!
I started the Cambridge Diet, straight in at step 2 on Monday. I was lurking and reading a few posts but thought I would get involved with a bit of discussion! A bit of background, I'm a 26 year old bloke and definitely need to lose some weight this year. I'm at work now but will update all my height/weight/target stats then I look at my sheet at home, but I need to shift around 5 stone all in all (at least!)
My real goal with this is to "kick start" a healthier living plan, I tried Atkins before with success for a couple of weeks, but naturally piled it all back on again as soon as I stopped!
I've found it OK so far - the shakes taste nowhere near as bad as I was expecting! I think my problem is mainly going to be solved with mind over matter, I love food that's bad for me! I'm also finding it really strange not eating - but not particularly feeling hungry? It's very odd!
Anyway, hope to offer to support to everyone, good luck to you all and hopefully chat to you a bit on here!
Welcome Josh, I have 5 stone to shift too. Just started week 2 and going well, missing the eating can be solved by SS+ or the introduction of bars. I did the diet around 7 years ago and SS+ all the way, in 12 weeks I lost 5.5 stone. This time I am 2 stone lighter than when I started last time, hoping for better long term results as the issue I had with my back have been lessened with a spinal fusion.
Stick with it and drink water, lots of it!
Great effort! Yes, I think drinking lots of water is key here. Luckily for me I drink a lot of water anyway so it's good. My general rules are that at my desk at work I should never have an empty glass, and that pee should be clear all day long! 7 days in today, not going too badly!
Glad it is going well, how are your weightloss results?
I have changed to SS+ at the weekend, shouldn't make too much difference to my weight loss and I'm finding it much more bearable with a meal to look forward to at the end of the day.
Yeah, I think I'd find it tough to do it without the meal at the end of the day. It's something to look forward to! Well I weighed in myself in yesterday and I've lost 8lbs over the first week. Conscious that a lot of this will be "water weight" but it all counts! Hopefully couple this diet with some more exercise and the lbs should fly off! Have a stag do in Dublin at the end of Feb though, so that'll be interesting!
Just did a few calculations on my scales last night, so 9 days in and I've actually lost 10.2lbs! Worth noting in the 9 days I've been on 2 4 mile walks and also been to the gym a couple of times, which might have helped. So anyway - onwards and upwards!
Keep up the good work Josh, I am coming up to 14 days tomorrow, had lost 20lbs on this mornings weigh in.
When I lose more weight I will walk more, thats about all I can do due to a back complaint.
Wow great losses for you both. Well done.x
