New to CD


Full Member
Hello There :)

I have just joined cambridge diet and after the three days of preparation time to cut down my carbs and drink plenty of water I will be starting Sole Source. I joined as I feel that CD is my last resort to get my diet under control. I have not been overly keen on liquid diets, but I am determine to make this work.

Can I have some tips on how I can deal with the temptation of eating food?

Hi Jemax, water is the key! Anytime you think you get a hunger pang drink more!! I'm on day 8 now and my daughter had some pringles earlier and I can honestly say I dint want any...Its mind over matter...Make a list of all the things you would like to do that you cant until you have lost the weight you need to lose. Then when ur tempted, remind yourself that by giving in you are making those goals so much further for me!! Also come on here to rant when you need to and maybe even start a diary thread so you can keep track of your triggers and emotions

Good luck
