    Hi!
    I'm joining this site in hope of some support and maybe suggestions! I am in my 4th week of the Cambridge Diet and the weight loss is sooooooo slow! I'm only 4ft 11 and my first weigh in was 10 stone. The first week I only lost 1lb and as you can imagine was devastated especially when I had stuck to the diet religiously and gone through those first 3 days of hell!!!! 2nd weigh in I lost 4 1/2 pound and this week only a pound again. I am doing Sole Source plus because I couldn't do complete Sole Source I needed a meal. So anyone have any suggestions to make this weight go any quicker?! I'm beginning to wonder if paying out all this money is really worth it especially when the weight loss is so slow. I'm now 9st 8 1/2 and ideally would like to get down to 8 1/2. My Counsellor has suggested going up to 810 cals ? What do you think? Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Look forward to hearing from you!

    Hello and welcome. Good luck with CD. I'm no expert but there are loads of experienced CD people here, including counsellors.

    Might be worth posting this on the CD forum as well, if you haven't already? That forum is always really busy :)

    Welcome! Try not to get too disheartened. I was on Cambridge before and lost 2 stone in around 2 months. Are you drinking enough water? In my experience - Water Works! You've done well so far, don't feel like you haven't!

    Hi Lisa and welcome, I'm no CD'er either but I think slow loss is sustainable loss.
