    Hi all.

    I have just started CD today on the 790 plan. Its gone ok so far.... I eat a lot of quorn anyway, and you seem to get loads on this!

    Thanks in advance....:p

    Hi Piglet

    Welcome to CD and to Minis. I think losses on 790 are pretty similar to SS, maybe a few pounds less so I would guess around 12lbs per month but should be more in your first month.

    Good luck.

    Have lost 3lbs/4lbs per week consistently for the last 4 months.

    Did SS for 2 months then 790 for 4.

    Have lost 7 stones to date.

    I did one week of SS and lost 8lb. Last week I started 790 and lost 4lb.

    Not much of an experience so far but I'd have expected that result on SS so I'm really pleased and will be sticking with 790. I stayed in ketosis the whole time by the way :)

    Thanks everyone.

    Should I be exercising too? Will it help? I have been following an exercise DVD for a couple of weeks, and dont know if I should continue.

    I have a 4 and half month baby boy - so I am trying to get rid of the baby weight!

    Gentle exercise won't do any harm. It'll get the feel-good endorphins moving (helping to avoid depression so I've heard) and get you into good habits for when you are ready to maintain.
    BUT don't go nuts - heavy cardio work-outs are probably not a good idea (we're consuming under 800 cals a day which is still considered a VLCD). Plus you need plenty of energy for your little bundle :)
