hiya welcome to mini's :) Im on the cambridge diet 3 shakes a day. the losses are good. not allowed any food what so ever unless your on ss+where your allowed a small 200cal meal.

WW and SW are all good diets there is lots of people on here doing them,the losses are a bit slower but you are allowed food :)

You should check out Starlight she has lost a huge amount with WW and is a real inspiration.

Lipotrim is like cd as is lighterlife :)

Hi and welcome.

I know what it is like having 10 stones to lose. Do you want to do a Very Low Calorie Diet where food is replaced by shakes and soups like Cambridge diet, Lighter Life and Lipotrim? Or one where you control what you are eating like Slimming World, Weight watchers or Rosemary Conley. It mightbe worth having a look at the diffrent sections on the site and also looking at each diet's own websitebefore making a decision.
