It presents flexible weight loss programs for both women and men.and has a low-calorie diet plan that is made up of well-known bars, shakes, soups and porridge.

Cambridge diet products can be used alone for fast weight loss or they can be used in combination with normal meals for slower weight loss.

The programs vary from 415 calories per day to more than 1500.

The Cambridge Diet requires that regular eating of low-calorie shakes, soups and snack bars – planned specially for the program to complete all of your daily nutritional necessities under strict calorie guidelines – can lead to fast weight loss.

The pros of the Cambridge diet

1. a lot of people find the weight loss to be immediate and rather dramatic.

2. If you stick to the system, you are almost certain to be thinner by the end of this diet

The cons of the Cambridge diet

1. A number of medical specialists think that it’s not healthy to send your body into a condition of ketosis. The outcome can make the body not only burn fat, but also muscle mass.

2. Reported side-effects of the diet are hair loss, bad breath, nausea, faintness and diarrhea.

3. Meal plans can be costly to keep; you should be ready to pay for this short-term weight loss system.

The characteristics of the Cambridge diet:

  • This diet works by putting your body into a condition of ‘ketosis’. This happens when the body does not get all of the calories it requires to function appropriately and thus is forced to turn to fat stores so as to keep on going.
  • There are six variations of the diet plan. Choose the most appropriate for you
  • Try to find a consultant to help you follow the diet
  • Don’t forget to drink 8 glasses of water per day
  • Consult your doctor
