    I'm struggling a bit and would like some advice. I have been on the 1000 now for about 5 weeks and I have gone up in weight by about 7lbs now. Should I go back onto SS or SS+ or stick with it a bit longer and see what happens? I know that I have not gone over the 1000 a day:(

    I am very fed up, even though I was told to expect to put some on for a start, I did not expect this much. I now need to lose a stone to get to where I want.

    When I went onto the 1000Kcal plan last yr, my counsellor said to try every week to add a different Carb, so basically 1 wk I was only having potato, the next wk, rice, then pasta then bread. Hope that makes sense. If any of those wks I put on weight then it could be that I was more sensitive to that Carb. Found out that pasta and bread are the two that will put weight on if i have too much, whereas potato and rice i am alright with.

    Might be worth trying a wk of same carb every day and see what happens. Hope my reply makes sense to you.

    Thanks Mrs C, I might try that. Although I've not been having bread or potatoes. I have had fruit and banana and yoghurt too. Maybe I should get back and do SS+ (with milk) and then try out introducing foods weekly.

    Susan, I'm sure you will stick to it too if things go heywire. Its best to catch it before it get too bad. I'd rather nip it in the bud now when its not too much extra.
