    Hiya

    Just after some advice - I have done just over 11 weeks of CD SS, and my BMI is now under 25. This week I asked my CDC if I should be moving up the plans, but she said that I'm ok to carry on with SS until I reach my target weight. Have been doing some research on here, and it seems this isn't correct.

    Can anyone give me some advice as to what plan I should be following now, and also have I been wrongly advised that SS is still OK ?

    Many Thanks in advance ! xxx

    Hi,

    Are you from the UK? Different countries have different rules concerning BMI that's why I ask :)

    If you're from the UK then you shouldn't be on CD SS when your BMI is lower than 25.

    Hi,

    I'm not a CDC but I've seen people be advised about this on the forum before. I think the advice was to go up to SS+ for a few days and then move on to 810 but I really can't be certain. I'm sure someone will be along soon to clear it all up!

    Do you have your yellow Cambridge booklet? It will detail the plans you need to be going up. Ideally you should be sticking to each step for 2 weeks.

    Hi, I am no expert but my CDC told me that you start working up the plans starting on 810 (two weeks on each stage) once you are 1 stone way from target. Hope that helps.
