Come and sign up here if you want to join us - a 10 week camp this time, as per usual.

I'm interested but know nothing about it. Where can I find out? Want to lose 12 pounds. Hopefully a couple of them will be gone by 6th feb

BIWI Sat 28-Jan-17 18:25:29

Here's some general stuff about low carbing/Bootcamp

CarelessWispas Sat 28-Jan-17 18:25:51

Ugh what took you so long, I need this to whip me back into shape so much...can you bring an extra big stick just for me, please? grin

I'll post more stuff about it over the next few days - what it's about, what you can/can't eat etc.

The key thing is that for the 10 weeks of Bootcamp, you're significantly reducing your carbohydrate intake, and specifically excluding:

potatoes
pasta
rice
bread
flour
sugar
chocolate
sweets
biscuits/crackers

from your diet.

You eat a high fat, medium protein and low carb diet.

For the first two weeks you also can't eat any fruit, nuts/seeds or drink alcohol. But after these two weeks, this is relaxed and you can re-introduce these (albeit in moderation).

BIWI Sat 28-Jan-17 18:28:13

Welcome, CarlessWispas! (Although I think you're going to have to change your user name! grin)

NotdeadyetBOING Sat 28-Jan-17 19:17:59

Me please! Have 14 lbs to lose.

MrsDOnofrio Sat 28-Jan-17 19:38:38

I need to lose at least 2 stone blush I'm in - been intrigued by this for a while so it would be good to get some group motivation.

Wineandrosesagain Sun 29-Jan-17 11:23:41

Me too! I lost 5 and a half stone on BIWI's bootcamps last year. Fell off the wagon over Christmas and though I haven't regained more than a couple of pounds, I still have 2 more stones to lose.

BIWI - weird question for you - I've noticed that my memory isn't as good as it used to be and though this may be down to getting older, I've read on the internet that some studies show a high fat diet can affect the memory. Is that something you've heard about? Or maybe there are particular types of fat to be avoided?

I'll be joining but not weighing - am in between houses (divorced and living with mum while buying new house) and my scales are in storage. I will be judging weight loss by the fit of my clothes! Ideally hoping to lose a dress sizesmile
