    Hi all

    I'm thinking of switching to Cambridge from lighterlife. I've been doing LL for 5 weeks and I'm doing really well an thinking of switching purely for the costs reasons. And also cos I don't really gain much from the counselling sessions. I don't have issues with food and things like that. I'm just trying to shift some leftover baby weight. I've lost 19Ib so far in 5 weeks and would love to lose another stone roughly.

    Has anyone switched from LL?

    If not then hi anyway and any advice/tips are most welcome.

    I'm seeing a consultant on thur for more info then I'll decide whether to switch or not x

    Hi!! :) I haven't done LL (is it the same as CD only with counselling?) but I like CD and it's working for me!
    I do have food issues, obviously otherwise I wouldn't be overweight! but I didn't feel I needed to speak to a counsellor about it and certainly not for the extra money, if I need to see a counsellor I'd rather spend that money on a proper one! I'd say go for it, what else have yo got to lose except more weight!! :)

    hi! I did LL a few years ago and didn't get on with it very well a I felt starving hungry all the time and didn't lose much weight either. its thee first time on CD for me and on day 4 today. hunger is less and I have defo lost weight altho not been on the scales yet... its just worked better for me. I find that not having food completely takes away the stress of making healthy food choices esp when motivation can sometimes be low! am really pleased with CD so far... x

    Wow bigandbeautiful ur loss is brilliant. Ive been doing the lite version of LL. I tried the total for a week which is just 4 foodpacks and nothing else but found it too brutal for me.

    hi big and beautiful... when I did LL I was having 2 shakes and a meal and I dunno if it has something to do with ketosis,.but could never have ben in it as eating whilst having shakes. I don't know if the plan had changed...but was soooooooo hungry I can remember being quite down! I didn't have the variety in flavours either because then you bought tins of shake powder rather than the sachets. then after a hellish week I only lost 2lbs! lol! so needless to say I didn't such to it! how are you doing? xx

    Hi jaymi, if you can stick with Cambridge and get past the first 3 days just having 3 shakes or soups it does get easier and you will have a good weight loss. I'm on day 2 again but last time I lost 9lbs in my first week. I love the tetra bricks (ready made up milk shakes) you can have the choc one hot.
    Give it a go u will drop weight and save money x
