    Well here is my first post! :sign0144:
    I am seeing my Cambridge counsellor this afternoon, after being inspired by all the CDieters on this forum.
    I am horribly nervous but so desperate to do this.
    What are the negative side effects of this diet? I have heard all sorts of stories about hair loss, inability to control bowels etc. What 'symptoms' have you experienced? I feel like the more I know, the more in control I will be.
    Hope to get to know you all more and here is to the new skinny us!

    Hey Leanne,
    Just wanted to say welcome and wish you luck on your cambridge journey.. Dont be nervous hon, its exciting as you have made your first steps to being slim......
    Everyone is different for me on my third day I felt a little dizzy and I drank lots of water took some neurofen had a lovely bubble bath and an early night and felt much better in the morning..
    The cambridge diet is a fantastic diet and you see a difference so quickly in yourself..
    I have been doing it now for 16 weeks and I can honestly say I truly love it...... It has changed my life so much..
    Good luck for your appointment this afternoon and let us know how you get on x

    Hiya,

    I haven't ever had any negative side effects (apart from occasional odd bowel movements :D) In fact I have never felt healthier or more vibrant than I do when I am on CD

    Get through day 3 and you'll crack it!!

    Good luck to you

    Thanks CurlyWurly1234.
    I tried CD once before and didnt last a full day! I felt so ill. However, I have been reading lots of posts and have seen that if you can get through the first few days, it seems to get better. (I hope :innocent0001:)
    I have seen a few of your posts and your story is so inspiring - well done you!

    Hi Leane
    Im on day 2, and so far going great, i did feel a bit bloated yesterday with all the water i had to drink, but today i am drinking more cause of a really dry mouth, and they say "the more water, the better weight loss" so i guess the dry mouth is a good thing lol, i didnt really get any hunger pains yesterday,but the times i did think of food, i just drank more water, and told myself i didnt need it, as smaller clothes is better then a bigger belly :)

    Good luck with your weight loss journey

    Hi, keep going with it....I am starting my fourth week and feel lots of energy.....very positive......the quick results are such a buzz!!! I get dry mouth (use mouth spray) a little errr blocked (Dulcolax) and sleep a bit disturbed for the first few days. I would say the positive far out weighs any negative of this diet.....Oh and my fingernails are stronger and longer than they have ever been!! If you start to feel iffy just log on here and read lots of posts!!

    Thanks for that. I was worried - you hear so many horror stories about side effects, dont you? My CDC put my mind at ease too so really feeling positive now. Half way through day 1 and feeling ok. Slightly weird sensation having a tummy full of liquid but nothing terrible. Bring on day 2.......
