Cambridge Diet anyone?
Hi everyone. I'm new to all this so need all the help going! I would love to hear from anyone in the same boat, or who once was where I'm starting from.
I have been advised to start the Cambridge Diet to lose weight prior to having a gastric bypass. I tip the scales at 414 pounds and I suffer from lymphodema which doesn't help and now I have a degree of heart strain. I get really panicky about my condition thinking that I'm going to drop dead at any second. I start the Cambridge Diet tomorrow and, living alone and being quite isolated, I thought that joining this Forum would be a great way of having an understanding support team. Any advice would be welcomed. Thanks!:sad:

:shake: I am not familiar with the Cambridge diet but I know I always feel better when I have a plan to follow. You are headed in a great direction and have a lot to look forward to. Try to focus on that and leave the what ifs behind. Wishing you the best. Glad to have you on board. :jumpjoy:

Thanks for those kind words! The Cambridge is a meal replacement program with the usual shakes, soups, bars and set meals. I am looking at it not as a diet but as a life saver and am quite excited about it. How weird is that! How much weight have you lost since starting?

Hey Vignette, I did the Cambridge diet after my daughter was born (I was on a count down to my wedding and the slow and steady approach was becoming less and less of an option as time went on!). I thought it was great and you really need to be focused to be sucessful on it. There isn't much room for slip ups and I think the most important part of it is towards the end when you're getting close to finishing the program. I'm guessing your transition back to real food may be a little different to most since after your op you'll be going on to a regime where you would have less food than normal. I think the best advice I could give would be to make sure you get as much advice from your CDC and your doc at the hospital about how to move from one plan to the other and how to make sure you get the most bang for your buck nutritionwise. Good luck with everything and I hope it all goes ok
