    Hi there!

    You've come to the right place! There is loads of information, advice and support on here... and I don't think anyone bites! :D

    I think the price might slightly vary.. your CDC will be able to tell you when you see her... but more importantly for me has been:

    IT's Sooo much cheaper for me each week than buying a week's food... AND it's doing the right thing FOR ME.. and I'm not buying any rounds in the pub... or any bits of nonsense, crisps, snacks, drinks etc etc etc etc... so I'm saving a small fortune, and even with the extra things I'm doing (Tai Chi, Massage etc etc) it's still good for me financially as well as my health..

    ..others may have different experiences, but that's been my last couple of weeks :)

    Good luck - and come on here lots... read lots and post loads tooo!

    Vxxx :)

    As V said, it does vary and depends on whether you are male/female or tall etc.

    It could range from £31.50- around £50 a week, somewhere around that (correct me if I am wrong anyone! I pay £31.50 but I know that my CDC likes to keep her prices down as low as poss). But don't forget that is all your food for the week! You get all your meals for that price.

    I have also saved a fortune, so much so that I have enough money left over to treat myself when I reach each stone (my hubby's suggestion :D) and STILL save money.

    This is because our food shopping bill has halved, and then I'm not getting take-aways, nipping to the shop for snacks all the time etc.

    Good luck with it, it really is an amazing diet! I am near the end of my third week and am loving it.

    Me toooooo

    Hi there - I am starting next week too and want to know the same thing - I think it is about £30-£40 which will be a bit tough as I am on maternity leave. I would love to have a diet buddy so let me know if you want to keep in touch - in any case all the best on your journey.

    Great - this will be really cool - it will be excellent to share highs and lows. My son is just 7 months. His food is all puree so I dont have the problem yet of eating his leftovers (anyway he hardly leaves anything!) My CD Counsellor just called and has a session tomorrow evening so it seems like fate to go along. Maternity pay is rubbish but it will be well worth it. I did CD a couple of years ago but back then I only had 1 stone to lose. Have you done it before?

    fankoo - my CD counsellor just called and she said it depends if i have 3 or 4 packs a day - i might try to start with 3 packs a day as i do have pretty good willpower once i put my mind to it. i can fill up on water too - you have done really well - any tips?

    Hi

    Have just noticed your baby is only 6 weeks old, unfortunately, this means you will not be able to do any CD programme.

    You have to wait until 12 weeks after the birth of a baby and not be breastfeeding to start any of the CD programmes.

    The best thing to do now is eat healthily from low GI and start to prepare for when you can get started with CD.

    Start to increase your water and eat fresh veg and lean protein, brown rice, pasta, granary bread etc.

    I know this is disappointing however your body needs to fully recover from the pregnancy and the birth.

    Nearer the 12 weeks contact your CDC and she will advise you the best way forward.
