    I have recntly lost 22 lbs on the CB diet. Thrilled and in 8 weeks have only put on 3lbs or so. Thinking of doing SW but I cant get my head round it. There are sooooooooooooooooooooo many calories in carbs, yet your allowed as much as you want! Surely this defies all logic.....Can someon please speak to me like im 5 and explain it???

    Cheers

    There aren't 'that' many calories in carbs, it's processed carbs which are not good. It's about using fresh ingredients, and balance. Carbs, protien, fibre, dairy, sugar and fat. Our bodys need all these, SW proportions them in the amount we need. That's why HEX's are important, and so too are syns.

    Hi Rugby girl, I think you mean CD diet :D There is a thread on here for CD to SW you may want to have a look, will bump it up for you.
    It's hard to get your head around the different kind of eating....food for one! It took me a while too. You just need to tell yourself that this is a completly different diet but it does work. Well done on only a 3lb gain thats good whilst moving across :) I'm sure you will love SW x

    I'm just really really excited about food again.....but also petrified by it! I do NOT want to gain weight, I have worked too hard and like my body now, which I never have. Not to mention its so much easier to run around the pitch its unreal! I hate the 3lbs that I have, I dont intend on making friends with it! Sooner it leaves the btter. But the idea of all this food is amazing!!!! Thanks for your advice and links....I think it really is the difficulty of getting my head around eating again. x

    Well said judimac I totally agree!:D
    Trouble is on CD you can't eat and are taught the complete opposite, so to start with your head is all mixed up :silly: Don't worry Rugby girl by next week that 3lb just may be gone

    Wow. I did not know that! interesting, its a good job I'm a MAHOOOOSIVE fan of pasta! I have that 3lbs i wanna shift again, plus an extra 7-10lbs. I will then hopefully be lifted in the line out without those poor girls legs buckling! ha.

    I have to just reprogramme my thoughts about food and eating! Also, the alchol part.....being a rugby girl its kinda part and parcel! But I'm glad SW gives you the freedom to drink, where as SS'ing drinking is a sure fire NO NO! x
