    Wink My Cambridge Diary ! ^_^

    Good evening Ladies!

    So as you can see I am new to this site!

    I am currently on day 3 of the CD! and I think am doing ok, I even nearly forgot to have my soup at lunch because I didn't feel hungry-woops!

    I have been reading about this Ketosis business, I didn't realise we could check this, (do we have to?)

    Im curious, had anyone tried the Maple and Pecan porridge? I tried it, on day 2 for breaky, and nearly puked my guts up does anyone else think its horrible or do i just have weird taste buds?

    Will be nice to hear from other CD people and GOOD LUCK Everyone! xx

    The diet of porridge

    Hello;
    I advice to follow the diet of porridge, because the regime, consisting of a boiled novel, can lose 2 kg in 3 days and 3-4 pounds a week. It is balanced because it contains about 50g of protein in the form of 5 egg whites and 3 0% yogurt. However, as it has just 350-400 calories per day is severely deficient in vitamins, magnesium and potassium, it is cons-indicated in people with congestive heart failure, liver failure, renal insufficiency, excess acid uric or hypotension. Do for 3 days may be interesting to give a strong impetus to start a sequence of emaciation.
    Good luck.

    I'm not sure I fancy a boiled novel, thanks all the same. (I haz a feeling the post above might be a tad spammy )

    Hi Sweetpea, welcome aboard!

    Well done on getting to day 3!

    No, you don't need to test for ketosis. Some people like to because peeing on a stick and watching it turn pink makes them feel better but honestly, you don't need Ketostix if you stick to the plan. It'll work if you do it 100%, promise.

    Porridge is a bit like marmite round here. You either love it or you hate it. Personally, I don't enjoy the texture of it if it's made with the recommended amount of water, so I add more hot water to it so it turns out more like oaty soup. Love it like that and it takes ages to eat!

    Hey Ladies!

    Apologies for not replying sooner! I decided to try Quorn Mince last night for dinner and it made me feel rather ill Never again!

    Heya! Maggie69 I totally agree with you, even thinking about it makes me heave lol!

    Hey, Maddy1970, Everyone has different tastes I'll let you off I wish I could like it but I really can't

    Hello! NANAS111 - Erm thank you...I think I will erm stick to what I'm doing for now

    Hey Lily, Yes spammy, I think i agree there. Ok well I am sticking to the plan so fingers crossed! haha oaty soup, that made me laugh out loud!

    So, Today is my day 5, I'm doing alright ( I think! ) I'm with my boyfriend at the moment and can smell a lovely roast! Although it smells gorgeous, I don't feel like I need it, so I guess thats good

    Water is my best friend as usual (not so much today) how is everyone finding the 4 pints a day thing? some days I struggle, and some days I can do it. Today I am struggling a little, I just don't want to drink cold water, when all I can see is snow out my window

    Also another question (Sorry about all my Q's, I didnt really get enough time to ask my CDC) can we have say three shakes a day, or do we have to have like 2 shakes and a soup? I'm finding the soup a bit blergh

    Anyway, Good Luck to all you lovely people, we CAN do this!

    Welcome Sweetpea!!

    I totally agree on the maple porridge, it makes me gag too! I used to quite like the apple and cinnamon but can't stand it now. I tend to have a shake warm in the morning and a soup for lunch.

    You will get amazing results on this plan - I've lost 71lbs since July and I feel great and my GP has given her seal of approval

    You'll find this forum a fantastic support, goo luck on u'r weight loss journey x

    6-10 weeks: -18lbs
    11-15 weeks: -15lbs
    16-19 weeks: -13lbs

    Then break for Christmas which saw slight weight gain

    Restart: +5lbs
    Week 1: -6lbs
    Week 2: -3lbs (TOTM)

    Total lost since 15 July: -80lbs

    Maddy1970 - Thanks! I'm going to keep on with the soup for as long as I can, I just get a weird after taste, not sure if thats just me, I think the porridge scarred my taste buds for life haha!

    Theresa1966 - Ah Im glad it's not just me! Was starting to think I was just picky with food

    ChristyT - Im glad you agree with the porridge, it was awful! I tried both but they seem to taste the same. Yeah I might try warm shake for the morning, that sounds like an idea The doctor who signed me off wasn't my usual doctor, signed it off without really reading all of it, and then kept asking me if that all I was there to see him for! I am already loving this forum, everyone is nice and very helpful! I even found a section about PCOS, which I have, so that was mega helpful aswell!

    I will try to be on everyday! It's nice to keep up to date with everyone, and see how everyone is doing, from what Ive seen so far, very very good! I have some catching up to do

    Well...dun dun dun!

    Ok so I lost 4lbs...rather disappointed, my CDC accused me of cheating...as well as trying to get me out of her house as quick as possible... I know for a fact I've done everything by the book rather deflated, I thought they were there to encourage the weight.

    However, I guess it's better than nothing right!

    4lbs is a fine first loss.


    I cannot see your stats- what do you weigh ?

    The 810 plan can be a little tricky as it is difficult to get it exactly spot on. Do you write down everything you eat and when ? This is helpful.

    Your CDC sounds useless. You should be fully up to speed on the plans and she should be available to you to ask anything of. Did she give you the plan booklet ?
