    Hi everyone, I found this report on the web about VLCD's such as the Cambridge diet. It is an interesting read and confirms for those that are worried about their health that diets such as the Cambridge one are no more of a risk to your health than any other diet.

    I added this because I thought it might offer a little bit of reassurance to those who have been given bad advice about the diet.

    TBH I've never thought it was unhealthy, and I fight my corner if anyone says it is!

    As far as I'm concerned, even an 'unhealthy' diet (which it isn't) for a few months is better than being overweight/obese for years!

    I completely agree - I have said to people before that it is better to lose weight than to be a risk of a heart attack and stroke because Im morbidly obese. I just thought I would put it on to offer some of those people who do listen to others negative view on VLCD diets that actually research doesn't support their unsubstantiated view of this diet.

    Personally I don't care what people think of the diet all I know is that people are saying I look good now for loosing weight - therefore cambridge is the diet/way of life for me :)

    It’s great to have scientific evidence to support the diet. Whilst I was on it I kept directing people to this website and saying if you don’t believe me how amazing it is read other peoples stories surely we can’t all be wrong.
    I so agree that the few months of doing a VLCD is so worth it when you get the physical changes not to mention the psychological well being and happiness that the weight loss leads to.
    Maybe someone will prove be wrong but I haven’t read of anyone who has said that their life is worse because of the diet.
    The info is now printed off and ready to be pulled out and shown to those who scoff!!

    You are so right – why do they feel that they have to be so negative all the while instead of just being pleased for us.

    I personally don't understand some people - they moan at us when we are fat, because we are fat. They moan when we are on a diet, because its not good for us????

    Well at least this report answers some of their so called complaints about what this diet supposedly does to our bodies.

    Cambridge diet
    Very interesting thread! :) I just have a question. How long can we use the Cambridge diet as sole nutrition? I have heard only 3 weeks.. Is this correct?

    I’m not sure – your counsellor should be able to guide you. It seems to depend on how quickly you want to loose, your live style and how heavy you are now. A lot of it is personal choice also.
    I had a cold during week two and missed eating so only did SS for a week and then went to SS+
