A woman has attributed the popular 1:1 Cambridge Diet to helping her achieve a 7st (44kg) weight loss.
Araba Coxon, 40, was told that fertility could be an issue when she was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries as a teenager.
However, after 18 months of trying she fell pregnant naturally, and when it was time to try for baby number two she didn’t want to let her weight keep her from conceiving.
At the time, Coxon weighed 15st 9lbs (99kgs) but she lost nearly 7st by following the 1:1 Cambridge Diet.
“I barely took any pictures of my son in the first six months which I am sad about now,” she explains.
“When I look back the pictures aren’t of me – I am always behind the camera taking the picture of my son and my husband, Elliott. I lost who I was, I didn’t feel like Araba anymore, I was embarrassed to go out, and I still wore my maternity clothes.”
She had been told by doctors that one way to overcome fertility issues was to keep her weight down, but she described it as a “losing battle”.
“I managed to get pregnant with my son but I had to lose weight for him,” she says.
When she decided to try for second child, she turned to a fertility clinic but knew she had to have a BMI of under 30 to qualify for IVF.
