    Day Five - cambridge diet

    Hi all,

    I am new here so forgive me if I get things wrong...

    I am doing the cambridge diet and finding it hard so i thought i would give you all a run down on how i have been feeling each day i would be grateful if people could share with me their experiences so i know i am normal?!

    Day 1 - i felt fine, very hungry but all in all ok
    Day 2 - felt on top of the world, had so much energy it was weird
    Day 3 - again felt ok, hungry but ok
    Day 4 - emotional wreck!! Absolutely starving, broke down at least four times, had a panic attack, felt absolutely appalling
    Day 5 - again quite emotional, very hungry, stomach ache and feeling sick, stomach gurgling like crazy

    i am doing sole source, having three shakes a day as dont like the soups or porridge.

    Any advice would be appreciate :-)

    thanks xxxxxxx

    I had my worst days on days 5&6. Everyone said it would be the first three days but I was fine on those days. I would suggest a tiny portion of protein on days you feel that bad. Not worth becoming an emotional wreck because of a diet! Your weight loss will still be excellent if you occasionally have a little protein and it won't knock you out of ketosis.

    Like it's been said protein will not know you out of ketosis. I have had half a chicken breast a day as I missed chewing food lol. Really helps x

    Thanks so much. God knows whats wrong with me. Feeling a bit better this afternoon and have my first weigh in tomorrow so going to discuss the possibility of sole source plus and see what she says. Just wondered if anyone else had the
    emotional issues or whether it was just me. To be fair my OH took me to a bbq last night which was pure
    torture, food everywhere!!! Then he told everyone what i was doing and of course you can imagine the response to that lol!
    Thanks for your replies :-) if anyone is looking for a buddy let me know xx

    Alas, i would advise that you try and resist the urge to eat unless you do step up to the next plan. Part of the problem being overweight (and thus needing this diet) is that we give in to emotional eating and cravings. Try and hold out if you can and distract yourself as much as possible. I had a LOT of early nights and my nails were permanently perfect in my first 2 weeks lol If you can get to weigh in and youve been 100% then the scales will keep you going lol

    Good luck with your weigh in! and make sure you ask your CDC to do your measurements too!
    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

    Hi ladies, I've started again this week after a few failed attempts. Good motivation and lots of water, they're my tips. Ooo, and go check out the thread of inspirational photos. OMG, really shows what can be done. Good luck. :-) x

    When I did the diet before I was told to watch out for day 5/6 as somehow they seem to hit you. Think it's just carb/sugar withdrawal. Stick with it, it DOES get better honest. X

    I agree with all of the above! Every diet works. But I've never stuck to any. I started beginning of match and have lost 3 1/2 stone. And sooooo many inches. It does work, if you stick with it. If I can do it, anyone can. Trust me on that. Good luck, it gets better.
