Hello! I have a longgggg history of yo-yo dieting through the years. Currently I feel mahoosive again, which after losing almost 6 stone on LL three and a bit years ago is very depressing. Anyway. After that success with vlcd I maintained well using a low carb approach until a mince pie found me about 18 months on... and on... and then I got back to goal again... maintained for about six months... and then more or less regained (I haven't weighed yet but I know it won't be good!)
vlcd isn't the right way for me this time round. I'm going to try a mixture of low carb days and fast/shake days - 4:3 (ish). I hope that having some real food will prevent me getting into a starve/binge cycle again and help me plod on for a few months without spiralling out of control. The main thing will be no grains and no sugar (both very addictive for me), and easing back into regular exercise again.
Anyway - just saying hello, really - and hoping to feel a bit better in a couple of weeks or so. Starting on Wednesday 7th (when I go back to work).
