I know two people and neither do it anymore. It's hard. Normal food is very important. Booze too...

Good luck though!

I know someone who's on it and she can't do it properly because she misses food. She has lost 2 stone but has already gone over the first section and should have lost a lot more.

I actually think it's ridiculous diet, and whoever will pay £66 a week for 4 sachets of "food" a day is not the brightest bulb in the pack. Healthy diet and exercise = win.

Good luck.

My husband was going to join, until he found out how much it was going to cost - it's extortionate!! I flatly refused to pay all that money for silly food and thankfully he agreed, there must be a cheaper way of losing weight surely?

I know someone who did this and it really worked for her. You get all the nutrients your body needs from the 'sachet' food and your body then adapts to this and your hunger goes as you have fat reserves to burn off.

Like any diet, it is only worth doing if you plan to change your life - the reasons you gained weight before you try a diet like this need to be removed from your life after you finish otherwise dont bother with any diet

It is effective but it isn't sustainable. Whether you get the nutrients you need from packet dry food is debatable.

We seemed to have a boom of ladies doing it at my kids school this year, 4 of my friends did it and worked wonders.............until they had to start eating again!

My close friend felt quite poorly too when she started it.

How much is it a month, does the inital check get done in your home, or do you go to them? Do you have to go to weekly/fortnighly meetings?

its £66 a week you go to them and have a meeting every week in very small groups and its suppsed to be more like a therapy session...i have tried other places and the joking from the large groups about losing a pound one week and putting 2 on the next week and also seeing them at chippy i drove past on way home...i found it a joke..
also you have to get permission from you doc and a monthly check up from them..blood pressure etc

True to an extent - its pretty hard to get all the nutrients we need from food unless you eat a Gillian McKeith diet
This does work as i have seen it...but again...it is designed to get the weight off only - you need then need to change your lifestyle to make sure you dont go back to old habits

thanks everyone...i need to lose quite a bit and im very impatient....all i can do is try my best and make sure i sort out my bad habits will abstaining

I am currently doing the cambridge diet which is similar, and cost half the price.
I am also very impatient and like to see results quickly, so if you can afford it go for it.
What I have found is people who don't need to loose a great amount of weight tend to be full of sensible ideas like healthy food/gym/exercise etc... but when your fed up and want a quick answer this is not a bad option.
How sustainable it is I don't know yet, but willing to take a chance, I have lost just over 2 stone in the past 7 weeks, and my BMI is greatly reduced. I feel much better in myself, and have been shopping today for christmas party stuff, and come home feeling fab. First time in ages.
It's not easy, but nothing is when it comes to losing weight,
Good luck, and best wishes xx

its all a marketing ploy, you buy there "sachets" for like £140 and drink then for a whole week or whatever. You will lose like 3-5lbs in the first week and you will think its working but thats because you have less water and food stored in your colon/stomach and other part of your body. You will lose alot of muscle with this one.

bad idea, I dont know how anyone can think going on a liquid diet would good.

quick fix =fail.

its priced from 35- 50 a week depending on what you want and height etc...im 5ft 7 and half and i have 3 sachets a day...35 pounds...cheaper than what i spent on me when i think about sweeties in the car... take aways ..all the other little bits i nibbled without thinking...im finding it really quite good...today is supposed to be the worse day but my councillor has contacted me a few times but im really not struggling...i have tried loads iof diff diets in past and lost motivation after first week when ive lost a pound or two..but your best bet for info is too go on the cambridge diet web site..the photos and peoples diaries really inspire...and amuse...

well its been around for 25 years next year...it was devised by a cambridge uni professor...and i have already lost 5lbs...on day 3...i know i have 77 lbs to lose ..but its motivating me to carry on..ive failed so many times before...all i can do is try...but after reading peoples stories and seeing their before and after photos...im willing to give it a go...
obviously you have never had a prob with your weight ...your lucky...i was thin when young...i hope you dont ever become overweight its really not nice...i know its all my fault...im the one who puts the food in my mouth...but im the one now trying to alter that...and hopefully in a few months when i have posted my before and after pic you will tell me well done

[B]]and i have already lost 5lbs...on day 3.

ask any doctor of fitness instructor, and he will tell that its un-safe to lose that much weight in the space of 3days (although 99% chance it will be just less food/water in your system so you have lost weight)

I diet and bulk all the time, I know what works, and know what doesn't.

this will not end well.

well exercise and going on that diet is the perfect way to get loose skin. how many caliores do you consume a day on that sachets, like 800 yeah?

oh well dont say I didnt warn you.

sure go for it, even if you do lose any fat, when you go back to eating normally you will put it back on, because the Cambridge diet is nothing but a fad and marketing ploy.

but good luck and im hope im wrong although I wont be

For once, i agree with BG1

** takes a moment to recover **

Quick fix diets DON'T work, the faster you lose it, the faster you put it back on when you stop. Unless you keep on eating packet food for the rest of your life.

The ONLY way to do it is to alter your diet, cut out the chocolate, biscuits snacks etc. and have some nuts or something instead. Make some home made soups and stuff. For excersising, if you're not keen, just go on a half hour walk every day, at least it's something. This is the only way to do it.

Think about it, that way you are slowly starting to eat healthier and healthier, so you naturally get used to the food you are eating, and it doesn't become "a diet" as such, just natural, and this will help keep the weight off when you stop consciously dieting. Eating packet food, come the end of it, you'll be dying for a chocolate bar, or a snack, because you haven't adapted to healthy food.
