Yes - it has to budge eventually even if you were in bed all day (although you might end up losing more slowly than someone who was up and about). However, all VLCDs recommend that at the very least you walk 5 miles a day (you probably walk about 2 miles a day without noticing) you should try to get moving a teensy bit, even if it's just v gently for 30 mins a day.

Hi Kommal - a quick forum tip - for most people, you just need to look at the column under my name to see the answers to those questions! I'm from London and I want to get under a BMI of 22. Also the booklets you should have got at the beginning have lots of additional information as does the CWP website.

Hello Cerulean

Can you tell me what you did differently between week 10 and 11 as your weight loss jumped from 0.5lbs to 8lbs.

Thank you

Hi - if you read the very back of your weigh in card, Cambridge explain this in the sentence that says 'Some weeks you will plateau' I give this diet 100% week in week out, it doesn't matter if you drink 2.5 or 5 litres of water or hike down a mountain, you average 3.5lbs a week. Average. The scales do whatever they feel like when they feel like it but they alwats go down eventually. If you readmy blog youcan see my daily weigh-ins.

there's no right or wrong to exercise on a VLCD. you don't need to do any exercise but it is beneficial to you if you do. you do not need to walk 5 miles a day/a week/a month/a year. this is wrong information - nothing is recommended other than if you are new to exercise you take it very easy, if you are used to exercise you modify it until your body is used to the altered fuel source!

What I like about the CD diet is that it doesn't "push" you to exercise. This has allowed me to actually exercise more but in a "child" way, which means without the burden of "having to" just the joy of "wanting to". I'm loving it.

I beg to differ, but it definitely mentions being on a VLCD at the bottom of that page so it's not for maintenance only.

  • It is recommended that no exercise beyond gentle walking be undertaken in the first two weeks of Step 1. Your body will need this time to adjust to being on a VLCD.
  • After the initial two week period, gentle to moderate intensity exercise* can be undertaken whilst on Step 1, providing that it is approached with caution and not done with excess.
