    Has anyone heard of the 18in4 diet which claims you can loose up to 18lbs in 4 days?

    I am tempted to give it a go. What do i have to loose, other than weight?!

    18 pounds in 4 days is probably just for someone who has lots of weight to lose. It certainly is not sustainable. What diet are you are now? If it is working then stick with it.

    Emm .. money and your health?

    My advice would be to go for a healthy eating option rather than a quick fix. I've been following your posts (not a stalker I promise!) and you keep looking for some magic cure-all whether it is VLCD, slimfast, cambridge, and now this fad diet.

    At 5ft 5" your BMI is already at the very bottom of the healthy BMI range and you have been talking about wanting to lose a stone. That would take you well into the underweight category. Sorry but I really don't think you should be trying to lose weight.

    If you are unhappy with yourself try some toning exercises or build your self-esteem instead.

    Take care

    boiled eggs and runner beans must be just about the strangest lunch possible!

    I guess ultimately the only way to do it is healthy eating and exercise. I might help kick start using Slim Fast for a couple of weeks. Two shakes and a balanced meal. I think even that right now would be a struggle.
