I've hit a snag

Hey guys,

So it's only 11 days since I've been paid, a good 2 weeks before I get paid again and I have £25 left in my account. To put it simply, I can't afford Cambridge anymore.

I think I may just be able to borrow a bit of money to pay for the next week. I'm a few stone away from my target and it is becoming more and more likely that I will have to give up CD before I would like to.

Can anyone see anyway around this?? Or, worst case scenario, which is the best diet to switch to?? :sigh: xx

Could you follow Atkins for a week (will keep you in ketosis) to tide you over till pay day or is CD a long term a financial no go?

BTW fantastic loss well done!

What about go to 810 for the 2 weeks instead of full SS next week. That way have 2 CD meals and a smallish meal like in the booklet. Would still be losses I'm sure.

2 CD packs and a meal aka 1000 plan (I think)
Atkins to keep you in ketosis? Lean protein and salads etc

Yeah I may have to move up to the 1000 plan until I get paid again...would it be too difficult to then go back down to SS+ after having had more food?

To be honest Hannah I don't know. But I do know that unless you borrow money you are going to be eating anyway.

Could you not cut a cheque and ask your counsellor to cash it on payday?

Yes, Atkins works with mild ketosis too as you're eating very little carbs:

Atkins Diet: Phase One: Induction

Just suggesting it for short term though, as money was tight, moving up step does sound better if you can afford it as because CD is better nutritionally.

I started on SS for 2 days then moved up to 1000/1200 because I had to eat at family function at the weekend (4 days). I am back on SS since yesterday. As I wasn't in ketosis before I moved up it didn't effect it. But I am finding SS easier now than last week and was glad to move back down steps to SS to start losing more weight.

Don't know if that helps any.

Thanks for all your support and advice, ladies. Thankfully my flatmate has offered to lend me some money. Phew! I wasn't really ready to go up a step, as I've a funny feeling that it could be the undoing of me lol xx
