Hi, I have just jointed Diet.com yesterday and wondered if anyone was on the Cambridge Diet Question How much weight have you lost and what programme are you on Question . I am on the Sole Source which i am finding quite difficult, i started the Diet on Monday 14th April and in only 2 days i have lost 4lbs. I have tried other diets but find that when i eat food i tend to over do it with the calories, i am on this programme for 4 weeks then i can have two shakes a day plus an evening meal, salad, pasta etc, cant wait as i could eat a piece of wood at momment.

One of my basic rules is: If I can't do it for life, I can't do it. If a diet is difficutlt you probably won't stay with it and if diets worked there wouldn't be so many!

Try portion control. It's a pain....but it's worth it. Some of the ways to do portion control are: 1) a smaller plate that fill only once. 2) Measuring and weighing your food. 3) ladles and servers that measure as you serve. You can get these at a restarant supply store.

Amen steffeysue!! That is my rule as well. If I can't do it for life, I can't do it. I had a conversation yesterday about this same topic with a co-worker. We both agreed that we wouldn't try anything that was too extreme. In most cases you gain the weight back plus extra pounds.

Take it slow so that your body has time to really adjust to the change.

Throw off those shakes! Use the meal tracker instead.. EAT what you DESIRE to eat BUT be cautious about it too. The rule of thumb which is NO TO DEPRIVATION but also DO NOT OVER SPLURGE Smile

If you can't see yourself having shakes FOREVER, then, that's not the one for you Wink

This dosen't sound like a good idea. Please eat real food in moderation, our bodies weren't designed for shakes. The action of chewing is good to have !!

Hi

I'm on the Cambridge sole source. It is still my first week but I have lost 7 pounds in 4 days Very Happy It isn't VERY hard, more just the feeling that you miss food and if there are others in the house eating constantly then it is more upsetting! Laughing I only plan on doing this for 3 weeks then keeping up exercise which I also do. Its just so I can lose the weight quickly for a special occassion. I haven't felt ill expect for today but that is due to the lack of water I had taken. The only complaint I have about sole source is that the shakes are DISGUSTING and I only like 4 of the soups. This makes it difficult not to get bored or want to stray!! But they also do bars now... so instead of a shake I can have a bar! sounds like a plan...

I did the Cambridge diet two years ago and I lost ten kilos over a period of two months which for me was almost a miracle. I loved the taste of the shakes, i was never hungry whilst on the Cambridge and I thought it was a dream come true. However almost AS SOON as i stopped the Cambridge supplements and TRIED to start eating normally again I felt like I had completely lost the plot and had the most CRAZY cravings for carbs which i never ever had before doing the Cambridge. The result is that two years on I have gained back the ten i lost PLUS another ten making me the heaviest I have ever been. I think that the Cambridge is great for a short period maybe to lose a couple of kilos for a special event for example but i think that any diet that is so low calorie for a long time can not have anything but negative impact on your metabolic rate. There were five of us who did the diet and four of us have had the same results,our one friend who is still ok is still taking cambridge supplements.
