    Just thinking off something I read in another post, what do folk think are the top/ most common reasons sometimes folks go off Cd?

    The only reasons I could really think of

    -is the difficulty sometimes getting past the physical and emotional and habit hurdle of getting into ketosis


    2-still being in food cooking environment that can lead to nibbling and temptation

    3-not having enough support

    and

    4- boredom- but if the weight loss is rapid which it is on SS how can that be boring?

    what do folks think...?

    over the years ive seen many many reasons crop up

    those who say it impacts on thier social life

    those who think they can do just as well weekly on slimming world or weight watchers

    i even knew one woman who started, felt a bit shakey half way thru her first day, took herself off to a&e who said to her well if you feel low on it then eat something so she went round for weeks telling our mutual friends that doctors had told her cambridge was dangerous.

    theres the people who have to endure people telling them cambridge is bad for thier health and will make them ill ( had a guy tell me that his wifes a nurse and that vlcd's cause kidney failure )

    Probably the 'head' things are the hardest to come to terms with - like everyone telling you it's dangerous or on the other hand 'you look great - you should stop now' (maybe because you're getting to look slimmer than they are ;)). You then start believing it. Also comparing yourself to others - you have to work out what is best for you and you alone - don't get demoralised by comparing yourself to someone else who has lost more/quicker/easier than you have, or has cheated and still lost

    Yup with you there - I've been torturing my self by cooking all sorts of yummy foods - all from scratch including pasta and pastry and sweets(fudge, truffles etc) for christmas which I have never bothered with before. And then I can't even taste them (or lick my fingers clean) ...weird!

    i think that emotional reliance on food is a big one. i'm very much an emotional eater and drinker really. yes, also boredom. :)

    i feel hard done by today as i know i need to be back 100% focused on my diet and i've struggled so much keeping my head sorted. i just wanted another day off even though logically i've done well this xmas for eating and drinking so there is no logical reason why i can't just let my good run go and get back to it.

    I know I stop when people start paying me compliments and noticing, it's a confidence thing, and cbt is going some way to helping. Also when I begin to think one little bit won't make a difference and try to push the boundaries.

    I forget how quick it will be if I stay focused so I nibble and that slows things down then I nibble some more..its like being half in half out..then I get discouraged..its like 100 % SS require 100% commitments and some days I am an 80%er which is half way to being out the door

    Hi there im a newbie today. I done CD last year and it worked soo well for me. I did have to come of it as I had a bad accident and a vlcd wouldn't allow my body to heal. But I'm returning to it now. The main problem I had was as I
    Am a nurse all my colleagues all had an opinion on it. I know they were only
    Worried about me but they didn't know the facts and just saw the fact I wasn't eating so therefore it must be bad. They never considered the strain on my body being 4 st over weight or the fact my shake was much better balanced than their meal from the canteen. I debated on a daily basis worh them over it Soooooooooooooooo frustrating!

    was cambridge now exante
    thats the thing that gets me, i started at nearly 15 stone overweight and if i mentioned my size then people would say, oh you dont look it, but sure your active, maybe drop half a stone and you'll be fine etc but once i got onto a vlcd every one ive ever set eyes on wanted to tell me what i was doing is wrong, im gonna end up with terrible health problems etc geez 15 stone overweight WAS kiling me and yet no one wanted to comment then, lol

    to be honest im lucky now in the fact that im not in a work enviroment ( carer for disabled daughter ) and i no longer have many friends so i just dont bother telling people about it because i know when im angry and frustrated im more likely to end up picking at the fridge

    things can sway me:

    1. being half way to goal, so feeling like ive lost some (although not enough!).

    2. feeling addicted to cd - sometimes i feel like i cannot EVER give cd up and this makes me decide to make a clean break.

    3. the taste - YUK to the shakes and bars!

    4. Feeling down - food is am emotional crutch for many, and difficult to give up when life is crappy.
