    Hello Everyone,

    Hope you are all very well... I am just looking for some advise please. I have been on lighter life lite up until about 4 weeks ago (went on holiday :character00100:). After returning from holiday, I have decided (or rather limited funds have!) to go onto cambridge step 2 810; as it's much more managable price wise and quite similar to what I have been doing. I just want to know a few things, like what are the vegetable options, how much of them can I have, and is there any literature I can get for free; as the lady wanted me to pay for it! Just wanting a bit more clarification as, although I am used to doing packs, the system is a little different. Any replies are much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Also please note Page 15

    'Smoked Haddock with celeriac and roasted vegetables'

    This should be plain haddock NOT smoked haddock due to the high salt level in smoked haddock.

    Yeah, my CDC has given me the pink one and the yellow one but there are new ones out now. My CDC gave me them for free but I've heard that some CDC's charge for them and I'm not sure if they're supposed to.

    I have just been to see a CDC and she gave me all the booklets for free and I haven`t actually decided if I`ll start the diet yet. I would look around and see if there are any other CDCs in your area.

    Good Luck x

    A CWPC can charge for the books if they want (they have to pay for them themselves), but most give them out for free. You do really need them, so if your CWPC is charging rather too much for them, find another.
