    Im sat ere in tears, im so unhappy :(

    basically i started cambridge about 3 months ago and i managed to stick to it for 2 whole days. my circumstances have changed now though, im in full time employment and ive also gained a further 2 stone.

    my question is this, i find it very hard to get past the 1st week with just shakes i end up feeling very sick and as i have a severe phobia of vomit i end up eating, do u think i could start the diet using bars, 1 mix a mousse and 1 shake a day, obv drinking more water?? i so want to do this diet but the sickness is a huge problem, i just cant carry on counting points im going insane, please help all advice is so much appreciated! xxxxx

    Sorry to hear you feel so bad. I'm no expert so I hope a CDC is along soon to answer your question! Surely it must be better to have 1 shake, 1 bar and 1 mousse though than not do the diet at all? Good luck with whatever you decide and keep posting if you feel so unhappy! It might help :) :hug99:

    Hi Chuckie

    Its so tough when you start. Believe me i've been restarting every week since March! Like you I've not told anyone this time 'cos i'm just going to get that knowing look of 'she's on another diet'.

    I'm not an expert, just a rather practised beginner but maybe you could start on one of the higher plans (790, etc) rather than jump straight into ss. Chat to your cdc, its what their there for.

    Good luck for whatever you decide.

    is it all the shakes that have that effect on you? Do you have the same reaction with the soups?
    If you can find one or two that you can stomach - just have those all the time until you can have the bars as well. Have you tried having the shakes in different ways? Really cold with loads of ice, or hot with or without decaf coffee, or mix some flavours together. Or just make them up with a little water as though it is a cake mix (I like that). Make one a day into a muffin (works with soups too). I'm on LL and start CD next week so don't know the ins and outs yet but if you can have mix a mousse in the first week and you are okay with that, then just have the mousse?

    I guess the CDCs are getting some sleep now. I'm sure you will get some helpful replies tomorrow.
    You have probably thought of / tried my suggestions but just incase you haven't I wanted to give you some ideas.

    Good luck

    Hey Hun....how are you today?

    I don't come on in the evenings - just at work!!! So I have just read your post and thought that I would bump it up for you. Hopefully a CDC will advise you on the best option for you.

    Good luck and don't despair, there is always a way to compromise!!

    Take care

    Hi Chuckie, do you think that maybe one of the other plans 790 or 1000 may suit you better. You will still lose weight but it gives you the flexibility of food too.
    Not sure if it's because you don't like the shakes or maybe you have an intolerence to the lactose.

    Let me know if there are any that don't make you feel this way also have you tried the soups.

    PM me if you need to hun xx

    Yes you can, I have 3 tetras per day, just the chocolate ones and I know Im not the only one here that does it. I have the odd bar aswell and Im on the 790 plan so I have a small meal each day too and when Im good and stick to the plan I lose 3-4 lbs per week. I would suggest trying 790 for a week or so to get used to the diet and then move down to ss or even stick at 790 if it works out ok?

    Good idea Chuckie, let her know that you want to be just on tetras so that she can make sure of having enough.

    Better to start now than put it off....you can have a stone off easily by Christmas hun x.
    Start the preparation now by cutting down on carbs and upping the water, to make it easier on yourself.

    Slim Fast.
    If it makes you feel so sick have you ever considered doing slimfast instead? That allows you a meal in the evening, although I don't think its as fast working as cambridge from what i've read about it.
    That meal a day though might make all the difference for you however and allow you to stick to it better.
