Just thought I would share my CD experience so far with you all. I started this diet on 12 June and in the first 4 weeks I lost 16lb. I did SS+ and had some very small meals in place of shakes on some days. However, weight loss slowed down, week on week, 9lb first week, 4lb, 2lb then 1lb. Then I went on holiday for 2 weeks ate and drank normally (lots of wine) but tried to have healthy choices where possible, still had some desserts but not pigged out. When I came back I had only put on 2.5lb. Got straight back on and went on 810, I have 3 packs a day and an Atkins type evening meal, ie the same as my family but no carbs, ie bolognese and salad, steak and salad, chicken and veg curry (no rice), chicken stir fry, I have not just had green veg, I have had some tomato based sauces etc, all the time I have stayed in ketosis, checked every morning. Yesterday at weigh in I had lost 8.5lb in a week, so now at 22lb loss. My CDC said that the weight loss for 810 is only about 2lb less per month and I have found it soooo much easier to do. It also seems that if you have a break every few weeks, your metabolism speeds up again and then you lose more. Not saying this will suit everyone, but I thought I would share it with you all.
