CD restarter: Why do I think I'll manage to follow a "normal diet"

Why is it everytime I restart on CD I start thinking I could manage to lose weight on some other type of diet. If I could I wouldn't be back to CD again. I struggle so much with CD but I'd prefer that option rather than thinking I can control my food intake on another plan, when I so obviously can't. It is so frustrating. I can offer others advice about CD having being there previously, but why don't I take it on board myself.

i know what you mean. i stopped going a couple of weeks ago. i managed 3 weeks then thought that i could do it with slim-fast shakes. x amount chocolate later and pizza/wine i've gained weight. i went back to work 3 weeks ago and they all seem to be eating all the time, it's coffee with cake tea with biscuits (aaarggh). i emailed my cdc today and i'm going back on monday at 230 after i finish work. (here we go again). i've got a weeding on the 10 may and a girly night out at the end of may so will need to shirt a stone to feel like going to either of them. then my hols in august, by then i'm hoping i'd of lost my 4 stone. good luck though mini, i'll keep checking in to see how you are doing.

Hi Helsbel, I've given up on CD, it wasn't working for me because I wasn't in the right place. I have been following a calorie controlled low GI diet, 1st week loss was 6lbs which I'm happy with, cause even if I veer off track a little I won't get a 4lb gain. I've increased my exercising to 2 cardio classes and 3 toning classes per week so hopefully in the next few weeks I should be seeing a big difference. Sometimes, I think we just need to realise that CD isn't for everyone. I have spent approximately 13 months using CD to get off a stone, put it on and CD again to get it off, it wasn't doing me any good.

Good luck to you, I hope CD is the right plan for you.
