    Hey!

    I'm new to MiniMins and new to the Cambridge Diet, but definitely not new to trying to lose weight :/

    I started Cambridge last Sunday and had a weigh-in on Friday where I'd lost 6lb :)

    I'm still waiting for the energy surge a lot of people report as I still feel lethargic and tired at the moment, but I'm not feeling hungry or particularly deprived.

    I'm doing the SS+ option with the meal at the end of the day, which helps I think though since I eat fish and not meat the prawn bill is pretty high!

    I've tried a good range of the products in the last week; I found the porridge to be universally awful, but the soups are largely fine and the chocolate shake is not bad but vaguely medicinal tasting...this week I got the shake tetras and really like the chocolate one when made up to a big drink with hot water...the strawberry one is vile though! Glad I only bought one as that got thrown away!

    The only thing I'm struggling with at the moment is the want of something crunchy or really chewy - I hope next week I can get some bars to help with that!

    Hi, I'm from Brum. I've been doing this diet on and off since 2006, and once briefly back in the 80s. Never actually completed the maintenance bit though, hence yo-yoing all the time.

    I usually go straight in to SS so get my energy surge on about day 4/5, so yours will probably be a day or two later than that. I love the porridge but I think I'm a bit odd as my counsellor tells me that she only buys it in for me :) Hope you're enjoying it, 6lb in a week is good going!

    Hiya from St Helens

    Hi

    I'm just through my first week too but I am doing ss.. I got the energy surge last Wednesday but don't worry you're not missing much as i went through hell the day before lol.

    I have also tried every diet under the sun but this one I am sticking too. I hope you don't give up stick with it just set your mind on a nice outfit for Christmas and it will be worth it plus you have already lost 6lbs which is fab. Thanks for the advice on the Tetras as I haven't had them yet and I have to have them next week as I am taking my nan to hospital for treatment all week so I have no option, looks like i will be on the choc then. I can only just bear strawberry shake at the best of times but I am guessing the CD ones must be rank and I will give them a miss.

    Stay strong and I look forward to your next weight loss update xx

    Hiya :) I feel much more energetic now than I did but am still getting tired easily :/ I can cope with that though.

    I had my second WI last night and lost another 4lb :)

    I added a spoon of coffee with a bit of hot water before adding the choc tetra and topping with hot water too and it made a nice mocha :)

    Hope you're doing well!

    Lesley, yes I think you're odd too! :) I really found it awful :eek:

    I am enjoying it actually, it's nice not to have to think about food except for once a day, and good to have fairly strict boundaries as to what I can eat.

    Lol yes, I think I must be. I also like my tetras semi-frozen and my soups highly spiced with chill powder. I like your idea of a mocha though. Will give it a go tomorrow.
