Hi everyone-

Just wondered if there was anyone on here following this diet? It is a low carb based diet, written by two incredibly down to earth, witty women.

I have just ordered my book (and the associated cookbook) online, and it will be arriving tomorrow. I hadn't heard of it before, but I've been away at a training day and the trainer lady has been following it and has lost masses of weight and feels amazing... she couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Anyway - I have been onto the website and joined their forum (there are thousands of people on there), so I thought maybe there were a few on here too...? As a miniminer, I'd prefer to log my journey on here (due to start on Monday 16th once I have absorbed the book)...

Get in touch if you are doing this diet, or would like to do it and be my diet buddy! :D

Hi! My book arrived today - it is hilarious!!! I am really excited about starting... going to have a good read through and clear out my house a bit first... it's not that full of food, but I did a big shop that needs eating (fresh fruit/veggies etc) first. Honestly, from the bits I have read so far, I would recommend buying it if only for a giggle - it is SO true!! Haha.

(In fact, it's only about £4 on Amazon, so you really should!)

I will let you know how I get on. From what I can gather, as an ex-Atkins-er, it is similar, but a little more human. N and I aren't scientists or dieticians, they are ladies that like a drink, like food and aren't about to let a diet completely take over their lives.

I'll keep you posted!!

I am trusting you, lovely Anna and have just ordered both books from Amazon. I have been low carbing for a few weeks now, fancy being my diet buddy on this one?

I would also be interested to see how you both get on, as planning to low carb after completing my 12 weeks of VLCD/Low Carb combination.

Cool - no probs Sarah_P! Just keep an eye on this thread :) There is also a forum on their Pig to Twig website, with many more people nattering about how they are getting on. I too have just finished five months on a VLCD (LL), so I will happily be your guinea pig to let you know if it works as a transition or not. :)

CALLING PEACHY!! Are you still on for this? Any joy finding the book? I have just read a bit on page 37 that recommends getting a diet buddy (CHECK!).. so hopefully you're still keen :)
Message me later, let me know if and when you are planning to start. x

I've just ordered the book. Instead of having a buddy- I'm no good at pm'ing- Why don't you keep this thread running with tips, ideas and successes?

Oh yeah, I def will stay on here (minimins was my lifeline during LL)... but would be good if a few of us were 'active' on here, so I'm not just essentially blogging. If the three of us end up doing it (well, I def am - but you and Peachy1982)... we could add each other on bookface and have this thread - that way we will always be able to moan at each other if needs be... :)

Been reading more of the book today - I am quite sure it was written about me, from my perspective (you may find this too)... enjoy!
