I asked this question a while back. I will try to find the post and bump it up for you.

It will be on the low carb board as we didn't have this one when I posted it.

A stone a month?
That's the same as CD and I completly starved myself doing that :mad: I wish I'd tried this diet years ago. I've never got on so well with a plan, this is definatly the one for me (like when you find the right man ;))

I have bumped that post up for you Jaybar. Jim said he lost an average of 2lbs per week, after the initial big losses. So that doesn't fit with the stone per month??????

Everyone is different, some people lose quickly, some don't. Personally I believe slower weigh loss is better and more maintainable.

I lose between 1-2 pounds a month, which as Jim says is a healthy weight loss. I'm not too bothered (I was to begin with) that its so slow because I eat well, my world doen't revolve around food anymore and I've got so much energy.

Oh I'm so glad my post was helpful! i too was really hung up on slow weightloss- on Weight watchers I easily lost 2-3 pounds, but then again I was always hungry and thinking about food. Okay its going to take us longer to get there but we won't be inclined to go back to our old ways because we'll appreciate how hard it was to lose the weight in the first place. (Well thats the theory :) )

Sukie, that sounds like a very wise decision! I am so glad that you are feeling more positive about things. I hope I can take some of that on board when I start the second stage of my journey at Easter.
