    Interested in doing cambridge diet
    Hi lost quite a bit of weight on cd, but came off it stupidly and put quite a bit back on. I just cant seem to get back into it. I would like to try low carbing and was wondering how much carbs should i have a day. I have about 6st to lose. My main concern is that i dont eat meat. I do eat eggs and fish. But i know atkins and most low carb diets are based around meat. I would appreciate any advice on what i should be eating to lose weight the low carb way.
    Thanks in advance
    Sharon:D

    Hi Sharon. I don't eat meat either. You can do 20g of carbs a day without eating meat if you're careful (20g is what you should stick to in the first few weeks at least).

    Get Rose Elliot's book "The Vegetarian Low Carb Diet" - it's very good. There's a cookbook too but the recipes in the original book are just as good if you ask me.

    Good luck x
