Hi everyone. Has anyone else come straight off a VLCD and gone on to Slimming World? I joined yesterday to keep my daughter company, as we both have about two stones to lose, but I have been really shocked by how much you are allowed to eat! I can't believe that I can lose weight on this diet, because of all the free and superfree foods you can have. I have been doing the New You Plan for three months and have lost three and a half stones, but right now I am absolutely terrified of eating all that fruit and veg. Fruit was completely banned on the VLCD and I only ever had a very small amount of low-carb veg with my evening meal, just to feel like I was still a part of the human race. Isn't fruit laced with sugars? and veggies like carrots, peas and sweetcorn are laden with carbs! I can't bring myself to eat any potato, rice or pasta and I haven't had a single syn yet! I am finding the plan a BIG culture shock! I had a big cottage cheese salad for lunch today and I felt so guilty afterwards that I had to go and do an hour's step aerobics. Please reassure me that I won't actually GAIN weight by following this diet?
