Don't jump straight to 1000. You should do a week of 810 first to introduce foor without Carbs. Then do 1000 cals the following week

Good luck

My Cdc told me at least a week on 810 before moving up after ss.

If she insists on you going straight to 1000, just do 810 and not tell her! The official advise is to work your way up week by week

Hi Gemma - long time, no speak! I don't come on minimins very often, and your post just caught my eye.

I'm a bit confused - easily done!;) If I've got this right, you've just finished your first week of SS, but now have to move up the plans? That's rather odd, so I thought I'd make it clear how Cambridge sole source works:

We need to be one stone heavier than BMI 25 before we can begin sole source. And we need to be on Step 2 (810) when we reach BMI 25.

It's sensible to move from SS to SS+ and then 810, in order to avoid that annoying water regain as much as possible.

All of this is in the booklets you will have received, but give your Consultant a call if you need any clarification.

Best of luck!
