    You can get loads of support on here and I think lots of people will have different tips. In advance you might find it useful to cut down on carbs and up your water intake which would help you in the transition.

    A lot of people (me included) find the first 3 days hard - there are no magic cures. I grit my teeth, remind mysef I will be feeling really good by day 4, go to bed when I am really hungry and read minimins a lot. By the end of the first week you will have a great weight loss and in the four weeks to Christmas you could easily lose a stone!

    AllyKat has given very good advice on cutting down on carbs and increasing your water intake a few days before as this will help you slide into ketosis much easier...much better than going cold turkey after a last supper.

    Ask your CDC for a selection of different flavours as CD has so many you are bound to find a few that you like.

    Here is a Motivational Christmas Tree I think is very good by our member qualitybrittany in the SW forum you could use to tick off each pound as you lose it on the run up to Christmas.

    Take it one day at a time and pat yourself on the back for each day accomplished and set yourself mini goals which are achievable in the short term and reward yourself with a non food treat...

    Believe you can do it and you will.:)

    Love the tree!

    Here's my advice:

    Decide now that this is the very last diet you ever do.

    That you will not stop dieting until you reach your target.

    Any blips and you get straight back on the diet as if nothing had happened, because you are in this for the long term, remember.

    Realise you will be tempted, bored, and your mind will come up with all sorts of excuses to come off the diet, but you are just gonna plod on with it, each day at a time, because you have no choice once you have decided this is the last diet you will ever do!

    That has been my mindset for 22 weeks now!

    Good luck.

    I started CD this week and was really happy with all the different flavours of soups and shakes and I did as Mini advised and got a good variety, that way I could find out what I like and don't like --- got to say that I haven't found one yet that I don't like. The diet is great and you can use this site for all your extra support as everyone is really helpful and nice.

    Mini I love that Christmas tree, it's gorgeous and what a great idea - well done qualitybrittany!

    Hi, everyone has pretty much said everything. I will only stress one thing, the only way this diet will work is if you are determined to make it work. Try and get as many different flavours as possible, that way you will know which ones you like and which ones you don't. I made a mistake of stocking up on choc and choc mint shakes and I couldn't stand them, I discovered porridge and it is so delish it feels like am not dieting at all. Good luck.
