    I am on CD and currently feeling sick and generally rubbish....

    I have 11 stone to loose or there abouts and was wondering what you eat on induction... is it lean meat and leafy veg

    because right now I would quite happily commite murder for a slice of roast beef and a bit of veg!!

    Weight loss is slower than CD I guess but this has to be better for you surely?

    I switched from Lighterlife to Atkins 6 weeks ago, I don't want to sway your decision one way or the other, but for me even though the weight loss is slower I have never been so happy on a diet. I lost 20 lbs in the first 2 weeks of LL and after 7 weeks on Atkins I have lost 16 more lbs, so as long as you are prepared for the slowdown in weightloss you should be fine.

    Hi im doing the same thing, I have lost 20lbs on cambridge diet but have swapped to high protein diet, been on it for 4 days and have put on 2lbs boo hoo. Im not panicking though as I suppose the body has to go through a period of adjustment so just gonna have a good week, no cheats and see how my weight is next week. Good luck

    Don't worry about putting on 2 lbs, I also took a while to adjust to the Atkins diet, after a diet of 500 calories a day you will take a little time to adjust, but if you stick to it then you cannot fail to lose weight. When I did the Atkins years ago and failed it was because I kept thinking about all the things I couldn't eat, the secret I have found is to do exactly the opposite and think about all the great food you can eat, I have the Lighterlife diet to thank for this as after eating nothing for so long you really come to appreciate eating anything :)

    LOL, sounds like the Atkins flu to me, it's your body changing from burning carbs for energy to burning fat instead.
