    I think that's slightly ambitious. I think it works out about a stone a month which is a great rate.

    Why do you want to do it so quickly?

    I'd really doubt it. You could probably lose around 5 but I think a steady 2 stone a month would be pretty much impossible

    Impossible is nothing.

    Very ambitious target, but one sure way to get great results with Cambridge weight plan is to stick to it 100%

    I won't say "Yes it is possible" it just wouldn't be fair to raise your hopes that high, but even if you manage 5 stone in those 5 months, you will be well on your way. You will feel better about yourself, and in turn IMO feeling better is a huge step towards looking better.

    Good luck with it.........I look forward to hearing of your results

    If you lose 5 stone you will look so different and that will be an impact in itself. You will also feel better about yourself.

    I think 10 is very very ambitious but maybe 6 might be possible?

    I say go for the best you can possibly manage and importantly STICK TO IT 100%. On this diet you cannot afford to cheat. No matter how hard it gets. Which it does!

    Good Luck and stick around here. There are some really inspirational stories and people on this site.

    Nothing is impossible but I it is highly unlikely and a very unrealistic target to set yourself without making yourself very ill indeed.

    IF you stick absolutely 100% to the Cambridge Diet for 5 months then you will possibly lose around 6, maybe even 7 stone.

    Don't forget that there are strict medical guidelines in place to protect your health, and, at the weight you have said you are, you will certainly have to have medical consent to do it.

    I wish you luck and also think that no matter how important the event is, the only real goal that you can work towards is yours. Not an event or for anyone else. You have to want to do this for yourself.

    Every good wish - I hope it works - it can and does and will if YOU stick to it :)

    One word of warning though, do NOT try to cut back the calories even more by cutting out a pack to lose weight quicker. The plan is nutritionally balanced with RDA of everything to keep you healthy and lose weight. Remove any pack and you WILL make yourself very ill.

    hi

    i lost 5 1/2st in 5 months on CD. it really slowed down when i got close to my goal and a normal BMI. i would say the first 2 weeks would give you amazing weight loss, then it would slow a little. i would say that you could loose 6st for sure maybe 7 at a push. 10st is unlikely.

    This is top drawer advice... follow the guidance of your CDC and stick to the plan properly - you will need ALL that it allows you.. and you WILL lose lots of weight.
    Wishing you every bit of luck there is, and then some more for good measure :D You can and will do it! :D
