i did lipotrim (TFR like cd) just before joining sw a while back. only used lipo for a for weeks and lost 1 stone so not as much as you. i had a 3lb gain in the first week but then lost 7lb the next week so was happy. you probably will gain a bit but nothing you cant shift the following week. might be a good idea to follow red days for a while to limit your carb intake and ease in greens days gently - that might help limit any gain. like post above says you have to come back to food sometime and sw is the best diet going so this is the best way in my opinion. hope it all works out for you. good luck and keep us posted.

Well, as i said on the CD forum i've switched to SW.

I had been eating/messing around with CD for a few weeks before i switched (eating rubbish) and had gained 3.5 lb.

But since starting SW last Wednesday (although i'm not going to a class and don't have a book yet so am doing it from memory....) I have lost 2.5lb! Woooo!

SW does work - granted if i'd been strictly SS'ing this week instead I would have lost more! But it's nice being able to eat and not see a ridiculous rise on the scales the next day because of water etc! I was a joke at the end of CD, I lost and re-gained the same 5lb over and over because as soon as i ate anything the scales would be up!

You will gain when you first switch but most of that is rebuilding your glycogen stores which will happen when you start to eat again whatever plan you're following!

Hope this helps!

Hi Claire,

I switched from CD to SW and gained 1lb in the first week, the 2nd week, I went on to loose 7lbs.
Once you have got your head around the fact that you may gain a little in that first week (so dont get disheartened), you will be fine.
SW is great. I found that I suffered really badly with the CD shakes, wont go into too much info, but going to the bathroom was a horrible experience!!!
Good luck with your journey.
