    Hi all
    I just posted as a reply on someone else's thread as I wasn't aware I could create a new one (the permissions wouldn't let me do it in the low carb diet area?)
    I have about 1 1/2 stone to lose and although I've had previous success on ww I just do not gave the motivation to count points anymore. I heard about Dr C diet on here and it's quite similar to Atkins but allows 40-80g of carbs a day and doesn't ban veg (apart from starchy ones) I have done this for almost 4 weeks and lost about 4 lb but last week nothing - in fact gained 1 although defo didn't cheat.
    I wondered if any of you other new faces had tried this diet and had any tips?
    I drink so much water I know it's not down to that and exercise classes 3-4 times a week. Have followed to the letter but I was wondering if I was having 'enough' carbs as i really did cut it all out apart from what is found in veg etc but then if I wasn't would I in effect be doing something like Atkins and therefore should still lose weight?
    Any advice would be appreciated x

    Never heard of that diet, but it sounds quite good - just like Atkins, but a bit healthier with the veggies being allowed.

    I noticed you said you'd been doing it for around 4 weeks, is it possible it was your time of the month? We all tend to retain a bit of fluid around that time, so you will probably find you will get a really good weightloss this week.

    Also, if you're doing exercise classes 3-4 times a week, you will be building muscle mass and muscle weighs more than fat. You should try taking your measurements, you may not lose weight but could be losing inches.

    Hi val
    Re: time of month, it's funny as I missed it this month (not pregnant I tested!) but thought it may be down to the diet as I also read on another forum low carb can effect it that in first months???
    I've also been doing the gym thing for last 3-4 years so it's not a big change for my body. I have taken measurements and am glad to see a slight reduction :)
    I'll keep at it and hope for best...
    Thanks for the advice though. What diet are you following?

    It's a meal replacement diet, but unlike cambridge you can have 'real' food, i.e. spagbol, chilli, curry noodles and the like which only have the same calories as the shakes/soups. I can't survive on a liquid diet so this one suits me down to a T.

    I have to have 4 mealpacks a day, plus one snack, plus half a pint of skimmed milk for tea/coffee, plus have to drink around 2-3 litres of water a day.

    I suppose I'm finding it so easy because I've done Cambridge before, which is only 3 packs a day and that's it - so this diet feels like I'm eating non stop lol.

    How are things going with your diet?
