Hi folks,
just wanted to introduce myself; I'm 30 and i'm half way through a pharmacy degree (STRESSFUL!) and have found myself piling on the pounds as a result of sitting around in lectures all day and studying all evening, while eating enormous sandwiches for two meals a day!
desperately want to get a bit trimmer before christmas, so i've started the Scarsdale diet today, with an aim to losing 14lbs in two weeks.
It worked once before, but it's very tough to stay on - hoping to get a bit of moral support and vent a bit about being hungry and having to eat fruit and raw carrots!

:sigh: Eromatic x

Gosh, the scarsdale there's a blast from the past!!!

I remember my mum and dad doing that diet about 1980 - it worked though and is very effective in 2 weeks.

Good luck with it
