    Hi, I've been here before and lost 2 stone but stopped when I became ill. Spent this week on a VLCD but not coping so here I am, trying this again!

    VLCD is a very low calorie diet, like lighter life and Cambridge diet.

    Boy are they horrid. I went into the legendary ketosis and was so hungry I couldn't sleep or do anything. Yes I lost weight but it's not sustainable. So here I am

    Hi Ellie! Hope you find xen works for you. VLCD are, in my opinion, ineffective. We need to know when/why/what we over eat and VCLD does not truly address that so you lose weight and then re-feed and just go crazy. Not everyone, of course, but often. Better to learn to eat low cal and low fat (which xen will force on you) and enjoy treats. Good luck xx
