    Hi all,

    Ive lost count of how many cheats and restarts ive done but ive still lost over 2 stone since feb so not doing too bad, everytime i try to restart i binge the day before and then by 12pm on day 1 i give up coz im soooooo hungry. Im thinking about having a week where I cut down all my food to healthy eating and then go onto cambridge rather than a big binge then say ahh il start tomorrow, what do you think x x

    I cut down then cut out carbs in the week before I started, so although I was hungry, I didnt crave carbs. I also limited fats and made sure I had veg and chicken.

    Yes, definitely cut down on the carbs. Don't worry too much about the calories if you want to do the 'last supper', but cutting the carbs makes a huge difference to those early CD days :)

    I cut down carbs for a couple of weeks before starting SS and compared to many others I've spoken to my side effects were a lot more manageable - apart from the mental hunger I had a bit of a headache on day 5 and felt a bit weepy and that was pretty much it for me.

    There is a thread on here "stepping into SS" - a sticky one I think and worth a read :)

    I cut down on carbs and upped my water levels to about 2.5 - 3 litres... that helped me not feel too bad the first couple of days doing the diet, also getting into a hobby or something... (to stop you eating) is a good idea... my nails never looked so good when I started this.. also wet nail varnish means you can't eat!!

    Good luck... you can do it...
