    Basically its the same as Cambridge diet. (Basically I think for 12 weeks you just have liquid food from food packs, like soups, shakes and drinks. And you are also allowed snack bars... Probably totally unhealthy and costs something like £60 per week but people who stick to it loose an INCREDIBLE amount of weight in a quite short period. Also you have counselling why to get you clear why on earth you put the weight at the first place).

    I always was a fan of more sensible dieting, but now I just want to loose the damn weightno matter what. So, I think ill try lighter life. I have an appointment on Friday (the counsellor will tell me what its all about). Ill let you know how did it go :D

    Lighter Life would be no good for me as i hate shakes and i would get sick of soup all the time. I remember doing a diet that hospital recommend (not to me just got hold of a copy) which consisted of lots of french onion soup. and on one day you could only eat chicken, i cant remember the diet too well but i remember all the soup gave me terrible wind :oops: but i lost about a stone in the first week.

    Well, first day of Ligter Life... I knew its gonna be tought, but it seems to me already that its gonna be a rather long journey. In the morning had vanilla shake, which tasted ok, but the texture.... :puke: Will have to try it with the instant coffee, hopefully will taste better.

    Didnt help, that due to my work I didnt have my soup lunch (basically after my breakfast at 8am I didnt have anything till 5pm). I was sooooooooooooo hungry! And was really close buying s sandwich :wall: But didnt :D

    So, just now had chiken soup! After the whole day without any food it tasted like heaven! I really liked it :D But I just feel like eating more. So now I am trying to drink loads of water mixed with flavour stuff (quite yummmmmmm). Will wate a couple of hours and will have my "lunch" mushroom soup and then before going to bed hot chocolate :D

    Just need to keep myself motivated! God, please give me strenght to do this! :pray: :pray: :pray:

    Carina think that you can lose a stone a month!

    Was the reason i went to cambridge they have much better food range then LL, I sole source exclusively on the porridge packs and they dont make me hungry during the day, i absolutely love them.

    You can make your shakes hot carina, my choc shkaes turned into hot choc! yum

    Good on you Snuggle :hug:

    Well, day 2 of my diet. Actually I am quite enjoying it at the moment.

    The most difficult part is being out of the house, simly cos there is food everywhere. We went out with hubby for lunch (well, he-lunch, me-peppermint tea) and it was difficult to watch him eat. Just all those smells :twisted: But I resisted, didnt have a bite. At home it is just so much easier. I am able to drink much more water which keeps me full, but outside :wall: There is just not enougth bloody loos! :wall: :lol:

    A funny thing happened today. Usually if I give Daniel a biscuit and he doest eat it I just eat it myslef. So, today I automatically stuffed it it my mouth, then remembered and had to spit it out :lol:

    Foodpacks- till now I tried just chicken soup, mushroom soup and vanilla shake. I LOVE soups! Just had one and want more :oops: :D Vanilla shake-hmmmm, on its own I dont really like it. Tried it hot with added coffee - well, not great, but when Ill fancy a latte will do :)

    I dont really have problems with drinking loads of water. The berry mix really helps :D Just there is that loo problem! :wall: I am weeing like a horse! :rotfl: At home its fine, but I cant even drive anywhere longer then 20 mins! :wall: Hope this will get easier.

    Emotionally - well, my mind is strong. At the moment its my stomach which demands food. Just need to get throught this first week :D
