So I have a weeks worth of Cambridge diet. Was planning on starting on 2nd, but thinking of starting tomorrow. Meaning I have a week of dh being home to help me stick to it.

But.. He brought me a lot of chocolate for Xmas. I really can't face eatting it.

What should I do? Start tomorrow now I feel ready to start! Or wait until next week?

Start now. Put the chocolate away.

Regift the chocolates and start tomorrow

Hmm.

I am probably judging you by my own standards here but this is me:

Overeat. Feel disgusted and almost violated by food to the point where I never want to look at it again. Two days fasting/dieting. Finally cravings overtake me. Massively overeat. Repeat.

You may have more self control but truthfully I'd get Christmas totally out of the way first.

I'm starting tomorrow

how is he going to help you stick to a diet if he buys you chocolate? it doesn't sound like he's very commited to your health

Mummytotwox Thu 26-Dec-13 21:42:54

Yeah that's what iv worried about, tbh iv not fully over ate. More meat/bread lol

Mummytotwox Thu 26-Dec-13 21:43:35

Because we buy each other chocolate for Xmas. I had a week n half to eat it lol

Mitchy1nge Thu 26-Dec-13 21:45:55

what happens after first week of Cambridge diet anyway? Or is it just a one week thing?

I'm starting weight watchers again tomorrow, Meeting isn't back on till a week on sat but I'm sick of eating and could do a hell of a lot of damage with another week!

BTW, I don't know what the Cambridge diet is, but I would imagine it's as crap as most diets.

Learn to eat better. Then you can still have some chocolate too.

After a week ketosis (should) have kicked in and the OP should have lost a considerable amount of weight.

stgeorgiaandthedragon Thu 26-Dec-13 21:49:20

Oh my God, God, where have you been all everybody's life!? I bet they didn't know that ... so glad you came along. wink

Mitchy1nge Thu 26-Dec-13 21:49:37

it probably just comes back with interest

Start now, setting dates to start never happens because there is always a reason why it won't work. Have a big glass of water before bed and then start healthy eating tomorrow.

I agree with TEE aswell, proper healthy eating is generally much more sustainable in the long term than any faddy diets.

After a week I won't want to murder people and be on the verge of eatting the kids.

Cambridge is the only thing I can do right now. I weigh a lot. I am Doug this to lose a big chunk, then starting slimming world.

I lost 8 stone before ds, then put it back on plus a stone!

Mummytotwox Thu 26-Dec-13 21:51:28

Btw, Google Cambridge weight plan, it's used in Scotland rather then wls.

hmm StGeorgia.

Sorry for trying to help, OP. But I've lost over 25 pounds using My fitness Pal and am 20 pounds to my goal.

stgeorgiaandthedragon Thu 26-Dec-13 21:53:55

There was a wink at the end, God.

But, seriously, I cannot and I do mean CANNOT diet 'conventionally.' I abuse flexibility! Meal replacements are the only things that work for me!

Then you'll never keep the weight off, stgeorgia.

And that wink? Was passive aggressive as hell. As was your entire post.

Sirzy Thu 26-Dec-13 21:56:43

Seriously though StGeorgia how do you see that working long term? Even if you do lose whatever weight you need to with meal replacement it is hardly a life long way of eating is it?

Mitchy1nge Thu 26-Dec-13 21:57:48

if they 'work' why do you have to use them more than once in your life? hmm

Anyway, I'm off to bed. We're getting hit with a huge storm and I have a feeling it's going to wake my son.

OP, start the diet when you want to.

At the risk of sounding like I'm talking crazy talk, but could you not just eat sensibly for the rest of this week, eek out the chocolate, allowing yourself a little each week, and not do a great big "going on a diet " thing in the new year - because "going on a diet" isn't really something most people stick to, whereas just changing the way you eat forever is...

stgeorgiaandthedragon Thu 26-Dec-13 21:59:14

I don't. I lost 5 stone 10 years ago. I've gained half a stone to a stone here and there as most people do, but never anywhere near like I was.

Sorry sirzy, I don't remember saying it was a life long way of eating, I said it was a way of losing weight!
