oh no! if you do have to come off just do low gi or low carb and count calories. I would be gutted to come off now.

Ahh hun,

Try not to worry about it you have achieved soooooo much! With only 9lb to go i would choose which ever you think will fit best in to your life.

Sorry i can't give more advice i just wanted to congratulate you on you fantastic weight loss.

Thankyou, I no its not the end of the world with so little to lose but its just a little sooner to come off cd than I had planned.xx

hey honey. how about moving up the plans for a couple of weeks. do 810 next week, that's not a vlcd any more, then 1000. then move onto ww or slimming world? at least then you'll feel like you are transitioning between the two rather than just switching...

I totally understand as it means you will have to deal with food choices properly again and i think that's daunting to any of us that have been on CD for a while.

But, having said that, maybe its not a bad thing if you learn to control your weight using normal food rather than meal replacement...at least you will be able to get your social life back....and have an odd glass of wine. Hang on a minute i'm talking myself in to joining you lol.

Good luck with whatever you decide, and i hope your health probs resolve asap.
great minds think alike hun, Ive just this min got off the phone with my cdc saying the same about moving up to 1000 etc as ive been on 810 the last 2 weeks anyhow, he is gonna ring the medical cd folks with my new tabs and what the doc has said and he will get back to me about it.
Thanks abz.xx
Have you done either of them before, WW may be advisable as you are still counting what you are eating and therefore limiting your intake.

I did ww years ago this is the one im leaning towards at the mo.x

it sounds like a good plan hon, as the 1000 plan isn't too different to ww calorie-wise from what i've heard. if you are already doing 810 then it seems like a good choice. if you don't want to go over to ww the cd plans keep on going up to a maintenance menu. so once you've been on 1000 a week there's nothing to stop you going up to 1200 if you want to. and still have a shake or a soup every day. although at some point you are going to have to let go of cd. it isn't meant to be forever :) but then neither is ww. i'm just hoping that once i get the hang of portion sizes and what is healthy i won't have to follow a 'plan' any more. but that's in the distant future. ha.
