Thinking of switching to weight watchers from Cambridge Diet - Good Idea?(1 Post)
I have been on the Cambridge weight plan since 2017.
I have lost a little over 5stones since then.
Took a lot of detours on the way and took a lot longer to drop the 5 stones than many others but still glad I did it.
I am considering switching to WW for the following reasons:
1. CWP is prohibitively expensive
2. It hasn't improved my problematic relationship with food.
3. Fitness is not dwelled upon too much in CWP its more about weight loss.
4. I want to set a healthy lifestyle example for my daughter and not focus on the scales so much
Will WW work for me? I don't know too much about the programme. Only that there are weekly meetings and weigh ins. And you count food points.
What I liked about Cwp was it took a lot of food preparation out of the picture. That suited my lifestyle because although i cook for my family daily it's easier to not dwell on making a healthier meal for myself after that.
I like the 1:1 support that is an integral part of CWP
Has any one switched from CWP to WW? Any other experiences input welcome. Ideally I would like to lose another 3st but 2st 5lbs will put in the healthy BMI range
