Cambridge Chocolate Orange Bar – 169 Calories

Post Image

This bar is not crunchy like the chocolate mint or peanut bar  it is coated in plain chocolate but has a soft orange center which is quite chewy. It is rather like a harder orange cream filling like you get in quality street or roses sweets but the orange is quite a subtle taste and […]


Cambridge Maple & Pecan Porridge – 144 Calories

Post Image

Cambridge Weight Plan’s Maple & Pecan Porridge is one of the three porridge options available on the plan. It has the same calorie count as the apple & cinnamon but is certainly  a sweeter option overall. I find adding a little ground cinnamon to this porridge gives it a little spice and curbs the sweet taste. […]

Cambridge Peanut Crunch Bars – 186 Calories

Post Image

Cambridge Peanut Crunch Bars are another really sweet meal bar option for those people who have a sweet tooth. Again like the Chocolate Mint Bar they have a gritty taste when you bite into them but the gritty texture totally tastes like real peanuts and is rather like eating a bar of peanut butter coated […]

Week 7 – 3 1/4lbs Gain Over New Year – Darn You Jack Daniels

Post Image

OK so I gained a few lbs over the New Year period and it is fair to say it was mostly down to my good old friend Jack Daniels, although I did eat for England too. It has been my absolute favourite drink for about 20 years and I probably sunk at least a bottle […]


Dreaded 1st Weigh In of 2013

I am back on the Cambridge Diet 100% today, first day back at work and into a proper routine but saying I am kind of dreading my 1st weight in after the New Year festivities is an understatement. I maintained my weight after my Christmas weigh in and was pleased with that as I didn’t […]
