    Hi all,
    I've spent most of this evening reading up on the Harcombe diet. I've tried so many diets and always put on what I've lost plus a bit extra. I've decided to give this a go. I'm going out tomorrow night for a pals b'day so I've decided to hold off until Monday. I've downloaded the book on to my kindle so I'll be reading that beforehand so I can be prepared.

    I'm feeling quite enthusiastic about getting started, hopefully coming on here will provide me with an extra boost.

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I haven't actually started yet, I wanted to read the book to the point where I knew what I needed for phase 1. I'm going to asda in a bit with my list so I'm armed for the morning.

    I do have a problem though, Sunday we are having a family get together. We haven't seen my brother for a year and we are going for a meal. Sunday will be my 5th day. I'm going to try to have plain meat and veg but am worried about how things are cooked and after 4 days on phase 1 am I going to be able to resist the call of the dessert menu, eekkkk.

    I wouldn't worry too much about how they're cooked as fats are ok!! Especially if you're having a fat meal. Make sure you have a good fill, you'll probably find you're nicely full and less tempted by day 5 anyway but if not then have a desert, just make sure it's only that desert. That's where a lot of us (me especially) go wrong. One bad choice can lead to one bad week!
