Cant do cd :(


time to get focused


2012..my year2b a size 10
Oh no!!!! Could you not speak to your gp? Obv depends on the reason but maybe he/she could help in some other way?
Hey hon

If you head is in the right place you don't need CD specifically (although I know the fast results are a draw). You could join SW or WW and go on the lowest allowance for your category and do it that way?

Just stay focused and use the drive you would have applied to CD to the other method and you will get there.
Sam 3lbs in a week on WW (on any plan for that matter) is fantastic!!

Do that every week and that's 12lbs a month which is what you would average on CD (after the first 2 weeks). Up the exercise and really watch your points/tracking and you can maintain that 3lbs a week loss.
Very few people loose 7 a week on CD after the first couple of weeks .. it usually settles down to about 4lbs a week.

You also have to be realistic and consider if CD think it would be detrimental to your health to do CD at the moment is it really wise to go onto another unsupervised VLCD?
Thought it would be easier to post them up for you :)

I think it's more than likely that the diet can affect how the meds work thus risking your health rather than the meds affecting ketosis!

Sam .. if you are thinking of coming off some prescription meds I do hope you plan to discuss it with your GP first.... I presume you are on them for medical reasons.
I cant help thinking youre going to be disappointed whatever diet you do. If I could guarantee 3lbs a week on WW Id pack the VLCD in in a heartbeat. 3lbs on WW is fantastic, but its not going to happen every week and if youre aiming for half a stone a week on CD, youre going to be disappointed there too.

I hope your CD says coming off a couple of tabs is enough for CD but also that the tablets youre taking are safe to come off. Have you spoken to your GP to check theyre ok with your coming off them or are you making this decision yourself. If you cant do CD for medical reasons, its unlikely you can do Exante either. I think meds affecting ketosis is really the least of the issues though

Your health is a lot more important than a fast weight loss
