    Looking at your BMI and Height/weight, I don't think you will be able to do SS as you need to be a stone overweight, which you aren't. If you want to do Cambridge you would have to do either 810 or above due to your current weight, which you can still lose weight quickly on... although have you considered any other diets? x

    I lost all my baby weight doing WW and maintained for over 2 years- however I have had a difficult year this year and have put over a stone on. It sounds silly but this stone doent want to go. I am apple shaped and look pregnant again. I feel that I need to break the bad habits that have slipped back in and omitting food for a period of time seems to me the best way to do it. that way I will have my body back and will have retrained my brain back to my healthy ways. I guess if she advises no then I will look at other options

    Awww hun I can imagine how not being able to shift that weight must feel, but to do SS you need to have at least a stone to go to get to BMI 25 and you have only a few lbs. As I say, you could do 810 no problem which is almost the same except you have a small meal restricted in calories and only protein and veg/salad so its almost the same as cutting out food altogether but means you just eat a little. The rule applies because if you were to do SS at your weight, your body would not be breaking down only fat, but also lean mass, which is very unhealthy. If your CDC allows you to do SS then its a bit worrying! 810 would be fine tho xx

    810 is great :clap: As wannabslim says, SS nor SS+ wouldn't be allowed. You can 810 to goal :cool:

    very best of luck :)

    If you cant SS with CD, I think you're allowed to follow w8 fast track, which is a total meal replacement, as long as your BMI is above 20 and for 2weeks only. It is slightly more expensive at £49 per week but you could then switch to CD 810.

    W8 Programmes - Rapid, Regular, Fast Track, Weekender

    Good luck.
