i did cambridge diet for 4 months and lost 4 stone and fell pregnant with my baby within weeks of trying. if anything I hadn't realised i was pregnant and was just about to do sole source again and found out I was 4 weeks pregnant. Baby is healthy and just fine. Several ladies on the cd forum I posted to had similar stories

I have known a couple of women who got pregnant by cutting carbs. They didn't cut them out completely, though, just went low carb.

Wow - I have never heard of any of these diets...except the WW. Interesting. I could lose bare to lose a few lbs...the 300 calories a day diet sounds extreme. I was once on one that ate 700-900 a day and I was soooo hungry.

I have done VLCDs before in 2007 (did lighter life for one week, switched straight to Cambridge as cheaper and nicer), lost 4st in 4months Did a short course of lipotrim before our wedding in 2008 lost 2 stone in 5 weeks.

I started one again this year as I had gained weight due to depression and wanted to get my BMI down for TTC. I did one called Exante which was excellent, lost 3 stone in 2.5 months. I'm now doing slimming world as VLCDs are not advised in pregnancy or breatsfeeding and SW allows preg women to follow their diet plan.

However, a lot of women on the VLCD forums I frequent fell pg accidentally as losing weight increases chance of conception if BMI is above 25. Babies were all fine.


My hair fell out with VLCDs , not dramatically but it was a pain. It grows back once your body adjusts...kinda like after coming off birth control.

I plan to re do it once I have a baby.
