Hi Katie

Welcome to the wonderful world of CD. Best advice I can give is cut back on your carbs, so green vegetables and chicken or fish are a good option. This will make your first week of SS a little easier. You are doing the right thing by upping your water, try to aim for about 4ltrs when on SS. The first week can be tough, but hang in there and the weight will melt away.

Good luck and don't forget to keep us posted!

Hey - welcome!

Stay away from the baked beans on the prep, they are little carb factories.

Good job on the water training... the more you drink the more you shrink!


Fed up of being fat

4 litres should be plenty. The guidelines for Cambridge say 4 pints which equates to around 2.5 litres. I always aim to get at least that 4 pints away, then any extra I can manage is a bonus, LOL.

Happy peeing!

(Oh, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Cambridge Diet! :D)
ive had wholemeal bread and soup today going to try make my own veg soup going to have a look on internet see if i can find a good one, making chicken and veg for tea and mash for my fella lol
