    Hey there :) welcome along!!

    Water water water is rule 1. And rule 2....distraction! This diet gives you the gift of time as you no longer need to cook so take the opportunity to use your Time elsewhere :)

    Oh, an eye on the prize! Once you get through the first 3 days, it's much easier and the scales (and your clothes) will make up for not eating

    Lizz is totally right. Water and fill your time with everything from work and cleaning to light exercise and fund stuff!

    I'd echo the water recommendations. Also, I find I'm enjoying doing things like putting on a face mask or beauty treatment. I did this brilliant foot thing that you leave on for an hour to get rid of excess dry skin. An hour is just long enough for streaming another episode of crime drama. And tidying, lots of that. And water :)

    Word of warning about glass of water next to your bed. I used to keep a glass of water on my bedside cabinet and have a drink after my midnightly visit to the loo. Until the night I was sooo tired I basically threw water into my own face. I was suddenly very awake and very wet. Now I have a reusable bottle with a sports cap by my bed.

    Well done for getting through day 4, I'm just finished day 1!! I can't wait to be on day 4! It shudnt take long to lose 2.5stones not on this diet especially if you stick to it!! My weight losses ( when I did it before) were always fab!! I'm not fussed by the bars! But they are handy to have in ur handbag for those moments when your out longer than planned etc x

    I've got lots to lose - about 6-7 stone I'm not sure yet I'll decide when I get there!! But I know I can do it!! The good thing with the bars is they take ages to eat (well they used to) - I used to cut mine in half and it felt like I had an extra product lol!! x

    I was on bars from day 1. This is my second time doing cd so I demanded them haha
    Did it in 2009 and lost 5 stone, put 1.5 on through eating and 1 on from quitting smoking. I used to be a size 22!

    Bars are needed. Chewing is too much to go without
