Advice needed for losing several stone
2

orangeplum · 12/08/2018 21:31

Hi
I desperately want to lose a few stone. I am thinking of doing a VLCD for 6-8 weeks to kick start weight loss, cut out all the bad bits and then start reintroducing on one of the fasting - either 16/8 or 5&2.

Does anyone have any advice or any experience of doing this? I feel if I get a good weight loss going that I will keep going rather than get disillusioned in early days of something not so quick.

Thanks v much. All advice appreciated. Planning on starting after the bank holiday.

Vlcd is awful. Exercise and 1400 cals per day works much better and is more sustainable. I lost 6 stone 12 in 8 months.

I lost just over 3 stone on slimming world, I only followed the plan very, very loosely but enjoyed going every week. Why wait until the bank holiday?
