    Cambridge Diet is a nutritionally complete formula food often referred to as a very low calorie diet, or the 'sole source of nutrition'.

    So when you are using CD packs only it is called Sole Sourcing or SSing for short.

    Hi. The best thing you can do is find a local consultant using the link below and they can give you more information and prices.

    Cambridge Weight Plan: Welcome to Cambridge Weight Plan

    Depending on what products you buy, the prices can vary. The prices can also vary from one consultant to the next. But as a very rough idea, execpt to pay around £40 per week plus for Sole Source.

    There is some more information in the link below about the various steps, but a consultant will be able to explain in more detail and answer any questions you may have.

    Cambridge Weight Plan: Programmes (6 Steps)

    I hope that helps. :)

    If you read this link below it will show you how.

    http://www.minimins.com/tutorials/19172-how-setup-weight-loss-ticker-tickerfactory-com.html

    Once you have made your ticker you need the BB code to work here.

    Then go into your User CP on the Blue Bar at the top of the page.

    Under Settings & Options click on Edit Signature.

    Post the BB code into the signature box...preview to see if it is there and then click save.

    Advice re starting CD following accident

    Hi there,

    I am really keen to start the CD, not least because on 20th Feb I sustained a compression fracture of my spine following an accident ice skating!!! :cry:

    I have noticed on the CD website that contraindications for starting the diet include "a serious accident within the past 3 months". Can anyone advise whether this type of injury would be classed as a serious accident?

    Obviously losing weight will aid my recovery enormously and, as strenuous exercise is not an option for me at the moment, CD would seem to be a good way to get my weight down fairly quickly.

    Thanks for any advice

    Clazzac after any kind of trauma your body needs extra protein to heal and the packs would not have enough protein so this is one of the reasons why you could not do Sole Source.

    Best advice I can give is to contact your local Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant and see what they advise as you will probably be able to start on one of the higher plans to start with and work your way down into Sole Sourcing.

    As you are unable to do any exercise just now you will still get good weight loss results even on the higher plans and it is an easy way to introduce the packs along with a small high protein low carb meal.

    Very sorry to hear about your accident and I hope you will have a speedy recovery.

    Edited to add...I have just seen you are 5' 8" and weigh 161lbs which puts your BMI at 24.5 which would prohibit you from doing Sole Source...so you would have to do one of the higher plans anyway.

    Hi Mini

    Thanks for your reply - that helps explain things.

    Re my weight - if only it were 161lb - sadly that is my target weight and my current BMI is somewhere around 36. :sigh:

    I think I will do as you suggest and contact my local CDC and see what they recommend.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Is it recommended to do SS before trying SS+? Will the eating of eggs/veggies kick you out of ketosis? Once you're in ketosis is it better to continue with SS?
