Cambridge Diet

3 years, 5 months ago

I recently put on some weight then lost some weight went from an unhealthy 18stone to a gratifying 16 stone, not bad considering I’m a big guy to start with but ultimately always wanted to be a lean mean 6% body fat machine of 14 stone.

I’m not into faddy diets or any kind of diet beyond good nutrition, good food and good living. But having given up the gym whilst waiting to enter back into employment exercise is not as frequent or as intense so the weight loss isn’t happening.

At the same time this is happening I’ve watched some people go through 6-12 weeks of the Cambridge diet and the results are quite frankly unbelievable. Weight losses in that time of 3-4 stone in men aren’t that unusual though I’ve tracked it in female friends who lose weight more slowly in comparison and the results were 2.5 stone.

This does require going on an incredibly low calorie diet but whilst I once would have thought this was a bad thing a number of research papers and trials suggest to me it isn’t necessarily especially if you are slowly reintroduced back to a normal calorie diet.

So I’m about to start my first week of 500 calories a day during which my body will enter a stage called ketosis where it will because of a lack of glycogen consume fatty acids instead oddly enough without consuming my muscle (which is what I assumed would happen).

So good stuff. I’d like to keep a record here and let anyone who is interested know what happens.
