This is my last diet....x
Im currently on the Cambridge diet as nothing else was working fast enough, so I'm now at my lowest weight iv been at since having my little girl 3+ years ago! I have got 2st 11lb's to go until I reach target (ezact weight i was when i got pregnant) which I'm looking to reach in the next 2-3 months and then I want to come over to slimming worl, my only worry is that because im doing a liquid diet once I start eating I'm going to start gaining.....my question is:if I start slimming world as soon as I hit my goal will I gain weight the first few weeks? Even if I follow the plan 100%?

Answers appreciated xx

I recon so. I did Dukan (because I'm a silly girl :( ) and gained it all back plus more. Same when I did slimfast and paleo and every other diet where you wipe out food groups... Does cambridge have a consolidation & long term phase?

Good luck and congrats on your losses x

Yeah, you might put some weight back on :( , but surely you always would have, whether you stopped because you got to target and had to start eating, or you just gave up. But don't let that stop you because you'll lose the weight again - just might add a couple of weeks on to the time it takes. Will be totally worth it!

It is a weight loss plan, but it is not a VLCD like cambridge. Go for it, as it maintainable as a way of life! You won't gain 7lbs after a night out, instead you can compensate for having a social life. But if you went from Cambridge to say, green days, and ate big bowls of pasta for lunch and dinner, I'd be very shocked if you didn't gain for the first couple of weeks. <---- I hope this isn't putting you off, just trying to be honest :) x

I *think* you have to have 5lbs to lose. You def can't join to maintain. I'm sure one of the others will be able to clarify this! x

You have to have at least 7lb to lose on their lowest acceptable bmi to be accepted by S W. Hope this helps

Do you not think that it would be better to join SW now rather than when you are near target. My worry is that you might be put off if you join near target and put on. Also the sooner you get back to eating real food the better it is for you. However, the ultimate decision is yours.
Good luck with your decision and hope to see you on here again.

Good news is I'm joining tomorrow!! My decision came when I really thought about it I thought when o hit Target I'm going to be really happy thus not even bother joining n then I'll put it all back on....if I join now I can loose the last few stone rating healthy and then I will carry on eating that way just hope I loose quick enough to get it shifted before my holiday this summer x

Hi Lea87

You've done very well on Cambridge but I bet you're looking forward to eating real food again?!

I did Atkins for a long time and hated the fact that I could have one meal off plan and gain 6-8 pounds! This is the first time I have tried SW and I am totally sold on it.

Good luck x
