Actually, you might just find it's the easiest diet you've ever tried. :)

Depends a bit on your mindset going into it and how determined you are to lose that 5 stones. If losing that 5 stones is one of the most important things in the world to you, that helps a lot!

Easy? LOL, am I mad? Yep, a bit. But look at this way. No food choices to make (other than what flavour shake shall I have?). No points to count. No obsessive calorie counting. No need to exercise yourself into a frenzy (unless you like that sort of thing ;)). Easy.

It takes food out of the equation. Now, it's not so easy if you have to (or feel you have to) partake in lots of social activity that involve meals out and alcohol. It probably isn't for you if you do. But if you're looking for the fastest way of seeing results (anything up to a stone and a half in the first month, then roughly a stone a month for the second and third month, then maybe 9-10 pounds a month after that) it's well worth the deprivation.

Why not give it a whirl and see what you think. :) But give it at least a fortnight, okay? A fortnight doing it 100%. Most of us are really surprised by how easy it feels by the end of those 14 days.

I never thought i could do it after failing to get past day one 100 times! I've nearly done two weeks now and i have found it ok after i got past that first day! Its not easy but it gets better, i have had the odd day where i am craving some food and last night i had a chicken salad so really a SS+ day but i have never had any other food and stuck to it 100%! I defo think you have to be in the right mind set or you will never get past day 1 :) xxx

:eek: Too long - on and off, unfortunately. I lost 5 and a half stone in 6 months when I first did Cambridge in 2007/08 but went on holiday and fell off the wagon and I've been chasing it ever since (sometimes more successfully than others). Still, haven't put all of the weight back on again and I try to stay focused on that!

Back to give it another shot cos I'm fed up with being obese now. :)

Good luck with the consultation - if you can get "into" it it is the easiest diet because you have no choices to make. Last year I lost 8 stone in 6 months by sticking to it totally 100%. I had to come off it for an operation and then went berserk - trying to get back on it, messing up, binging like mad etc etc so a fair whack of that weight has gone back on...but I'm back in the "zone" now and will see it through to the end now.
Last time i did it I stuck to it 100% and really couldn't understand why people said the couldn't do it and were on/off/on again, however this summer I found it really tough to restart and now see how hard it is if you don't stick to it - so go for it and give it 100%. I got so much support from everyone on here and that really helped too.

Good luck

Just wanted to add, the products you try may not be the tastiest things you've ever had, compared to regular food they're pretty boggin, but they do grow on you as you get into the diet and become pretty palatable so don't base your decision on a taster cos they won't taste how they will evenutally if that makes sense?
