Has anyone KEPT off weight with the Zoe Harcombe diet or does it come straight back on?

I keep loosing and putting back on the same half stone so really keen to know if the Zoe Harcome diet is any different.

Also, what can you eat for breakfast in phase 1 and phase 2? I really need something sweet for breakfast.

Thanks Jasper. I was really tempted to buy the book after reading about it on here, but flicking through it today in a bookshop I thought it might make me obsess about the things I'm not allowed. I don't want to go through all that if it's not going to stay off.

You can have natural live yoghurt such as fage - full fat if it's all you're having. The aim is to get rid of sweet cravings so hopefully if you stick with it your tastebuds will adapt. I think it's meant to change the way you eat for life, and once you've reached your natural weight you have much more freedom with what you eat although you do still have to follow the no junk rule. I think this is fair enough as she does advertise that the plan is about getting off of junk/processed stuff for life as that is what causes us to pile on weight. I guess any diet plan you have to take with a pinch of salt, but then she doesn't really claim that it's a miracle, it's just a way of eating well for your health rather than for constant battles with calories and cravings.

I guess it makes sense then - but not sure I can face a whole life without some junk, for the sake of being skinny!
