    I couldnt handle SS I have to many things going wrong in my life and couldnt cope with it.

    So im doing 790 now, even though CDC didnt want me too.

    I feel though like as im eating then I wont lose weight?

    I weigh my chicken cook it in my george foreman grill thingy. With a little salad.

    Im drinking as much as I can but it useally adds up to 3.5 - 4 litres.

    Im finding it easy and I have a routine just , I need to hear success storys on 790 :(

    ( On the up side, I have got my old desktop pc up and running again, and im currently trying to get laptop fixed so Im back until desktop dies lol)

    I don't know alot about the 790 plan, but from what others have posted, the weight loss seems about the same as SSing give or take a couple of pounds over a month. If you are happy with this, then I don't see why you shouldn't do it. You seem to have settled into a routine with 790 and also appear much happier in having made that decision.

    I am sure someone a bit more knowledgeable than myself will be along soon!

    My CDC - rates the 790! She has lots of ladies that follow this and don't SS as it's not the way for them. She has claims you can lose approx 9-12lbs a month following it xxx

    From what I have heard the average weightloss on 790 is 3lbs a week- which is only 0.5lbs less than on SS. I am doing 790 at the moment as the idea of abstaining completely after falling off the wagon is horrible! You will stay in ketosis so you will be burning fat just as those on SS, so yes you will lose weight, and lots of it!!! Chin up :D xxx

    Why did your CDC not want you to do it???

    I also think it's a great plan, for people who find SS too much or like to go out and socialise, who want to eat with their family or who do extra exercise.

    George Foreman Grill will be great for doing chicken and fish ... plenty of salad ... or BBQ it.

    Keep up the water and you should see about 12lb loss per month easily. Good luck!
