    Fed up & wondering why

    Hi All,

    I've been on CD for 4 weeks now & only lossed 7pounds! Week 2 I did stop as I was poorly but fortunately didn't put on any weight! I am about 95% on it completely although I do have tho odd bite of chicken or clear broth but I don't understand how this effects the weightloss so much! Cos of my height I can have 4 products a day but mainly have 3 as I never fancy the 4th despite being hungry!

    I chose this diet at I had 7 weeks to holiday & wanted to loose a stone but now a week away I'm only half way there!

    Does this diet work for everyone? Considering how much I used to eat before it's so disheartening not to see the results! X

    I know this may sound silly but you probably need that 4th product or a proper ss+ meal. Due to your height you'll need a bit more nutrition that us shorties. My business partner needs to have 4 products per day or three plus a ss+ meal or he doesn't lose anything. Your body goes into starvation mode and refuses to let anything go if it's under nourished. Make sure you're keeping your water up too (that's my big downfall!). Good luck.

    Hi! Thanks for the reply! Will try with the full 4 products a day & see if that helps! I don't want to give up as I stuck with it for 4 weeks so far, just don't understand why I'm not having great losses like you all are!

    I'm 5"11 with a stone 1/2 to loose! I'm pretty much on the move for most of the day so pretty active! Could try taking a few gym classes to try & boost losses I guess!

    Definitely need the 4 products. Stick with gentle exercise rather than anything too vigorous as you don't want to push yourself back into starvation mode again, that's pretty much definitely where you are. Good luck!

    Thanks for all the reply! Sadly despite a week being 100% I haven't lost weight this week! To say I'm disappointed doesn't cover it!

    I really don't know what to suggest hun

    What has your CDC said? Have you been to see a doctor as there might be a medical reason why you're not losing

    Current loss: 22lbs and 15.5 inches
    Week 1 - 5: -22lbs and -15.5 inches
    week 6 - 10: -11lbs and -12 inches
    Week 11 - 15: -10.5lbs and -12.5 inches
    Week 16: +1.5lbs. Went from SS to Step 3 in same week! Not surprised at the gain!
    Week 17: -3.5lbs and -4 inches step 3!
    Week 19: -1.5lbs and -2.5 inches
    Week 20: -1.5lbs 11st 8 1lb off Barbados target

    Total Loss: 48.5lbs and 46.5 inches

    My next questions would be about water and bowel movements! Are you drinking enough and have you got a bit of a back up of poop? Both those things could show as no loss on the scales.

    Hi Guys! Water has been around 4 litres a day & thanks to fiber no toilet issues. My consultant was at a loss but whilst we were chatting hormones where mentioned & madee think... I have PCOS & came off contraception 8 months ago & haven't had a period & weight gain has happened since then trip to doctors is needed I think! I'm still going to stick with the plan as I'm scared to eat now incase it sticks to me like glue! X

    Yeah stick with it !!
    This diet is good for people with pcos ( iv got it to ) it's low sugar low carb low dairy which is what we should eat when we come of Cambridge it's thows that make us produce more inculin or something like that which is harder to get rid of ? I read online somwere
    I had had a period for 5 months , had 1 this month after starting Cambridge

    Hope this helps xx
