    I have been on this forum for a few months as trying to get gastric banding on the NHS. I am hitting rather a lot of obstacles and looking to see if there is anything else out there that might kick start a weight loss. I am a novice when it comes to cambridge diet is there a kind person out there that could out line what it entails please....Linda

    I have been on cd for 6 weeks now - there are several plans of varying calorie levels - ss (where all your food is in the packs) ss+ where you eat the packs and either an extra pack and a little skimmed milk or a meal of white meat and green veg) then there are higher calorie plans - I am on ss+ and I am told that weight loss is on average 1 stone per month - I am sure a cdc will be along soon to clarify if you need it - good luck with your weight loss journey however you choose to do it

    I am finding it "great":eek: and agree with Lelly.
    Why it works for me, is because i am TOLD what i am allowed to have. Not a lot.:) Everything is out of bounds on SS and is a clear rule for me. No cheating. I need the discipline, that's for sure.

    Hi thanks for the replies and the link, how can you all afford it though? I know you are not buying ordinary food but it seems very expensive.....:confused:

    well, i don't know about everyone else, but i am definitely not aking so many trips to tesco/sainsburys also eating out at lunchtime when in the office usually costs me £20 a week, plus no money on takeaways or eating out with family, i'll be rich if i keep this up!!

    Works out £5 a day, I spend around that each day on silly things, like lunch at work, starbucks,magazine, chocolate bars etc etc.
    After over 20yrs of dieting this is the only one that is really working for me so far, three weeks in and not hungry, not picking, and actually enjoying drinking water.
    Also starting to feel a lot better in my health, nails are growing, and hair shining so there is something in this diet.
    However, do miss a glass or two of wine and hard to socialise.!
