    Hello all,

    A little introduction.

    I've been on all the conventional diets:
    WeightWatchers
    Slimming World
    Rosemary Connelly
    as well as my own healthy eating

    and tried slimming tablets (various types) and patches but I have limited success each time and then put even more weight on. On average, I've gained a stone a year.

    I suffer from depression, I comfort and binge eat, all things which don't help. My family don't understand, they think it's me being lazy. I eat in secret, then feel ashamed.

    I want to be able to try diets and have somewhere that I can talk about how I feel and get some support - looking at the posts, it seems this place it right for me.

    Good luck to everyone on their own personal journey

    Not sure yet. I've never tried a VLCD but I've heard that people with depression shouldn't.

    I thought I would try and just eat healthily for a short while, to get my head in order before attempting a specific diet.

    Any idea, help, hints and tips would be most welcome.

    Hi and welcome. Is it worth contacting a CDC and getting advice.

    Hi, I'm new too but reading through some of the postings I think it will be a great way keep motivated and get some support from people who really know how you are feeling and understand the challenge ahead, whatever diet you are following.
