    You should really be on 790....not sole source. You need to protect your lean muscle tissue....it's not good being on SS at BMI 25. Get eating girl. xx

    Kirsty....seriously....christmas is a long time......EAT NOW. You will be burning muscle tissue as we speak and that is not good or healthy.

    Do 790...it's nice and easy. Just small protein and veg...you get used to it.

    This is for your health......come on. The losses aren't much different and if you have the will power to SS, then you have the determination to do 790.

    790 does not kick you out of Ketosis by all acounts, unless you are very sensitive so you should be fine on that, I enjoy 790 very much and have lost 4lbs per week on it.

    You dont want to make yourself ill just doing SS. You will be surprised at the control you will still have on 790, I haven't even wanted to cheat at all. Plus its enjoyable having a little chicken and veg every day or some cottage cheese x

    Hi Oli, Im not sure about LL, I dont know enough about it!!!! Sure someone will pop on and tell us in a while, if not is it worth having a word with your LLC?? How does LL work, do they give you a plan to maintain like with the 790 1000 1200 etc on CD? Sorry I cant help!

    Hi Vicky

    LL goes from SS to management..no AAM or building up stages although i believe the management increases food types gradually...get to know your tolerances/triggers....:rolleyes:

    On LL, they let you SS down to BMI 22, as I understand it but on CD the recommendation is to start CD1000 when your BMI gets to 25. This is due to the risk of losing lean muscle tissue as your body hasn't got the excess fat to burn.

    I was told this on my training day and the trainers were very strict about it!

    I know it's hard - it's much easier to lose weight on SS than it is to curb your appetite, but that's the company guidelines, I'm afraid.

    I think it's just one of the differences in style between LL and CD.

    What does it actually mean then ''Burning lean muscle!'' I may be at BMi 25 now but I have plenty more fat to burn...wont the burning go straight for the fat? I'd hate it to attack the muscle and leave me with the fat...also REALLY concerned about 'startvation mode' as my losses have slowed to halting point!:eek:

    So much more confusion and question as SS nears a close...so much simpler in the beginning!:rolleyes:

    AARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad: :mad: :mad:

    Talk to your LLC, she should be able to give you the answers you need. Please don't worry.

    Guess?!
    That's true, Issy, but from BMI 25, you need one week of Step 1: Addameal, then a minimum of 1 week on Step 2: 790 Cal/day, before moving onto Step 3: 1,000 Cal/day.

    It's actually always been like that, but is made clearer in the newest version of the Yellow Book (Weight Care with Cambridge, version 3.3).....

    Things that I always thought set in stone change every few weeks now, courtesy of constant research and development...doesn't make remembering it very easy!

    Its so much easier without the food isnt it, never ever thought Id say that!

    Dont forget the packs are different with CD and LL, and they are both regulated so nothing is dangerous if you follow the guidelines for what ever plan you are doing.

    It is confusing, isn't it!

    On my training day, my BMI was 23 so Peggy and Lisa told me to go straight onto CD 1000 and supervised my buffet lunch cos I was all confused lol! Other CDCs told me on the day that you should go onto the steps up to AAM/790 etc from BMI 26 !?!?!

    Dunno! lol

    Hi,

    It is confusing. The rule is anyone with less than a stone over BMI25 should not do a VLCD that is SS, AAM and 790.

    So if you are BMI 27 you need to have food.
