So as of Tuesday 22nd Jan 2013 I have been on the Slow Carb Diet. In summary it as follows.
1 No White carbohydrates (or anything that can be white)
2 Eat the same few meals over and over again
3 Don't drink any calories
5.One day per week off (eat what ever you want)
For more info on the Slow Carb Diet, I'd recommend 'The 4 Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss'
Saturday was my cheat day and I went for it. I've logged my progress so far. I've not really lost anything significant in my first week on the Slow Carb Diet but I shall give it another week and see how it goes.
