    Good morning all.

    I'm going to hopefully be starting the
    CD in the next couple of weeks.
    I have found a supplier and have contacted her by email, she wants to talk to me over the phone to explain things before i meet for a consultation.
    Do any of you have suggestions or advice
    for me that you wish you'd known or asked when you started??
    I have just joined this forum today and will go through all the older posts and sections but i just wanted to say hello and see if there are info you guys can offer a newbie.

    many thanks.

    Hello and welcome to the forum. The people here are very friendly and supportive. I wish I'd written a load of questions before I'd gone to see my CDC, such as: More information about the preparation week; Information about SS+; what to expect during your first week, etc.
    I find this forum invaluable and you will always get support and advice on here.
    Good luck. :)

    Hi

    My CDC was really good and explained things in detail. I'd suggest you ask her what she sees her role as (some seem to just act like a sales person... others provide much more support), what kind of contact levels you can expect e.g. can you contact her if you are struggling. What is her success rate? How many clients does she have at the moment (give you an idea of how popular is she as a CDC). What will your weekly sessions involve (just weigh, buy and go or more of a discussion?).

    Just a few ideas.

    thank you ladies for your replies. there sure does seem to be alot
    of support on this forum from the posts i've seem already.

    So what does thast involve?
    kind regards

    I never had a preparation week; never heard of it in relation to CD. The only thing my CDC told me inbetween our initial contact and my first consultation was that some people eat rings around themselves before they start as a last blow out and she advised me to resist that if I could put up weight even more and it would make the detox harder.

    thank you goreygirl.
    btw i love your tag line
    I can eat what I want when I want; I CHOOSE not to because I value myself more than I value a bar of chocolate/pizza/cake!!

    i am going to be saying that to myself from now on.
