    Hi everyone

    Here Is a little about me: im 23 and weigh 13st 6lb and i'm starting the Cambridge diet tomorrow :eek:. Although at a size 14 im never happy with the way i look due to memories of being a nice slim 9st just 5 years back and would love to be there again. I've heard the first week is pretty tough while going through carbohydrate cold turkey! does anyone have any advice to help me through this?

    i was also wondering when is best to have each 'meal' what do you all do?

    hope everyone's journey is going well . thanks for reading :D

    the first few days are the worst just keep busy and and keep drinking the water.xx

    I have my shakes at about 12 (mid day) 5pm and 8pm (roughly), just try them at different times and find what is best for you.
    I sometimes use the ready made chocolate ones in coffee (probably get about 3 coffees from one carton).
    Ive also added a teaspoon of coffee to the vanilla shake its a bit like an iced coffee ive also done that with the chocolate shake too and ive made the toffee and walnut and the choc mint ones with hot water as a night time drink.xx

    good luck.xx

    Well done on getting through day 1 :D

    From experience keep your mind busy but be kind to yourself. Paint ya toe nails, read, long baths with all the extras lol.

    Remember you have taken the first step on a journey.

    Good luck

    Was doing great until I went on holiday. Stuck to it for a few days but gave in to food towards the rest of the week :thumbdown:
    But getting back on track since I've been back. Just worried abut my weigh in tomorrow. As long as I haven't put on weight from my first week I'll be happy :fingerscrossed:
