Notes on CD

I am getting K to measure me and take a pic this evening so I can keep track of my (hopeful) weight loss.

I have also discovered that I don't like spicy tomato soup but I do like the chicken and mushroom.


Cambridge Diet 07/01 Day 1

So yesterday was my first day on the CD. It went pretty well a few teething problems such as using too much water in my porridge and boiling water in my soup  (not nice!) but I wasn't starving. The shake on the way to my friend's and the fact I could have a 200 cal meal in the evening helped.

I could have a type of protein and a couple of tbsps of veg. I choose quorn last night and I was allowed 200g which is four fillets!! I just had two and some broccoli.

I am also allowed black coffee with sweetener which is cool.

I am trying to drink 2 litres of water a day and so far its going ok too.

Onwards and upwards!

Can't write about food right now...

Yes I have loads of updates to add to the blog but won't be doing that for a little while as I am about to embark on a rather extreme diet!

Circumstances of last year have led me to weigh rather more than I did before and would like to so from tomorrow I will be following the Cambridge Diet and using this blog to track my progress.

It will still be focused on food but once on a diet of 615 calories a day I doubt I will want to write salivating reviews about lovely meals!

I will definitely start the blog up again in a few months time but for now stick with me if you would like to read my diet diary if not, see you when I'm back and hopefully thinner!

I'm meeting a friend tonight for a meal at Little Bay in Farringdon where I am planning to say farewell to nice food by eating mussels and pork!

From tomorrow I will be existing on a CD (Cambridge Diet) porridge, a CD soup, a CD shake and a 200 cal meal consisting of a small portion of protein and 2 tbsps of veg.

My CD counsellor lives very near to me and is lovely so that should help. Also a couple of close relatives (hi guys!) are doing the diet at the same time so I know I will have plenty of support.

Yours soon to be hungry
