On SS but need weekends off advice pleases

Can somebody please advice my daughter, she has put on nearly 2 stone after losing 5stone last year. She did so well as she was going through a divorce. Since xmas she has started to put it back on again. I have told her this and she got really upset and said she knows she has, but has tried the various diets like weight watchers and slimming world but just cant stick to them. She says the only diet that works for her is VLC. Could she stay on SS during the week and then come off it for the weekends so that she can socialise with her friends???? Go out and have a few drinks and the odd meal.I feel so sorry for her, as she does need to go out, but her weight is a problem. Please any advice.

Blossom are you thinking about cambridge? As 50th says there is a weekend plan which lets you have some foods from an agreed list, but no alcohol! It's dangerous to drink alcohol on a vlcd, something to do with low blood sugar (although not too sure, so please correct me if that's wrong). Maybe she's be better on Weight Watchers or slimming world or perhaps even an atkins style diet, the weight will still come off, just a bit slower, but she can still eat and drink! Either that or she could commit to three months on a vlcd, but be guaranteed to see the weight come off! three months isn't too long and the results are definitely worth it! Maybe she should find a group with a counsellor (I'm an online member) and they can help address why she's put the weight she lost back on and how to stop it happening again!

I wish her luck with whatever she chooses!

Will get this thread moved for you Blossom.

What plan is she thinking of?? Cambridge??

If so she could SS all week and 810 at weekends - but still no alcohol I'm afraid!
Thanks Beverley, I am on Cambridge as I have put a few punds back on during my hols and want to lose them and I find the diet great. but my daughter. wants to do it during the week, but have the weekends to socialise. Which, may mean having a couple of drinks, it wont be every weekend. But, when she lost her 5 stone she was Lighter Life for nearly 4months and although she still went out it was a killer for her standing watching her friends at the beer festivals etc and her on her water, but she did it. However she doesnt want to go back to that place again. Now she wants to lose the 2 stone she has put back on, she has tried all the usual diets and she cant stick to them, but does find the Sole Source easy to stick too but cant hack the not being able to have a drink bit. She has recently been through a rough time and needs to be able to get out with her friends, for walks, meals and sometimes a few drinks. Its hard to try and explain to those who will maybe think she doesnt have to have a drink to enjoy herself, she never used too, but her confidence has gone.
