    Is there a way you can make your own shakes with a similar nutrtional content to the C diet? I ask as I can no way afford the diet. I was sent an alternative recipe today but it seems amazing anyone could live off it LOL. It was basically milk , fibrogel, multi vit tablet and a omega 3 capsule. :confused:

    i believe the recipe you mention was discussed on here a few weeks ago and created quite a storm

    i am not going to re-highlight the thread as it was closed to avoid heated debate and was not really heading anywhere constructive anyway but i seem to remember someone on here who is trained in nutrition saying that it ( the home made shake ) was NOT going to provide people with the proper nutrition they needed to stay healthy the way CD or LL etc does

    I saw the last thread.
    This 'recipe' appears quite extreme. Cambridge is properly formulated to provide all the daily needs on balance.
    Please discourage your friend from embarking on this. He could be seriously putting his health at risk.
    If the cost of Cambridge is a problem, then I would advise talking to your counsellor anyway. There are several CD programmes where you don't need all sachets. 1000 plan for example is 2 sachets a day if I remember correctly. There are still good losses on that programme and 1200.

    Don't apologise for asking questions! Thats what this forum is for!:)

    This is not a medically proven diet. It has been described on this forum before, and like before the thread was closed.
