    Just wondering if there are any members doing LL in Belfast area. I am struggling to get started on the diet as my GP will not sign the Medical Questionnaire.

    I would love to hear from you especially if you also had problems with the medical to find out if there are any private clinics that will sign the form.

    Look forward to hearing from you!!

    Is there any reason why your Doctor won't sign the form? You might be able to get the Practice Nurse to sign it. Alternatively, contact the local PCT and explain the situation to them. They may be able to point you the right direction.

    My Mum is doing the Lipotrim diet as LL isn't available where she lives. She didn't need a medical for that. The downside of course is that you miss out on the counselling aspect of the diet.

    However, seeing as though your Doctor isn't willing to support you paying for this diet, you could ask for a referral for CBT (Cognative Behavioural Therapy) to help you understand the underlying causes of your overeating and give you some tools to help. Obesity is such a hot public health topic at the moment that your GP surgery should be doing all they can to help you make positive changes.

    Good luck Susie!

    Thanks "Curlygirl"

    I have just discovered that I can start the Cambridge Diet without a signed medical form so I am going to give it a try. I am meeting the Counsellor on Monday so fingers crossed. I need to do something quick because the way I have been eating recently you would think I was preparing to hibernate!!

    I will let you know how I get on.

    Thanks

    Susie
