    Hiya I started on cd on Friday and well I have been reading on here that some are doing just shakes and others are doing shakes a vlc meal, Now I am 5'4 and weigh 18.1 and my CDC as got me on 4 shakes only a day and not mention of a small meal? I have read in my book that you should only have 4 shakes a day if you are over 5' 8?,

    I really would like to do the ss+ where I could have a small meal as my job is very tiring and need something to see me through. But my CDC say no I am not allowed to eat and inhale to stay and shake only for upto 12 weeks. Can someone please help and advise as I am really confused and tempted to call another consultant

    as far as i'm aware its your choice to do SS or SS+ (3 products and then the protein and veg meal) If you think this would suit you - then its your choice - the CDC shouldn't dictate to you which plan you go on, but discuss which would be best for you!

    Did your CDC give you the books , it will list the foods are allowed to have on ssplus . so 3 CD , plus the meal , which will list in the book .
    But maybe she had her wires crossed and thought you wanted just ss so if that be the case you should be just on 3 a day , after all it cost to much for 4 ... but 5ft 8 and over is 4 . and any man they say is 4 a day .
    if she did give you that info ask how long shes been a cdc

    Hiya thanks for replying. Yes she gave me books and I told her by fone text and email I should only be on 3 but she just avoids it. She says she been a CDC for 4.5 years. But I find it hard just on shakes as I said I wanted the 3 shakes one meal. Really think she just after the money I don't know. But can't go on like this it's making me want quit and really don't want to ,, Do you still lose the weight quick with 3 shakes 1 low cal meal xxx. Maybe I should ring another CDC for help

    They say theres not much difference in ss and ss plus with weight loss .
    she can tell you 4 but just take 3 and do your meal until you find another CDC but also you need to let Cambridge know what she is saying ... re ask her and then phone head office .

    Hi , if I were you I would DEFINATLY change your cdc! I am 5ft 7 and weighed 17.2 my cdc advised I should do ss+to start but I didn't really want to and said I would jst do ss she then advised 4 shakes but I wanted to see how I got on with 3 to which she agreed! They are not there to dictate to you and should only be advising you!! And helping you! I also she's great occasionally I have a slip and have a meal from ss+ which she thinks is fine as long as I'm still losing weight and being sensible!! Hope u sort something out soon p.s if u find a good consultant it will encourage u more xx

    Also just to add my CDC said that apart form the first 2 weeks there isn't much difference between the losses on average a month she said it might not be consistant on ss+ but it evens out e.g lose 2lbs 1 week then 6 the next where as on just ss its a little more even.. X

    You need to call her, according to the book and the website you should not be on anything lower than 810 at the moment. No one with a BMI of over 40 is allowed to start on SS or SS+ any more and that has been the case for most of this year. When I have overbought packs (sometimes I don't know if I'm in a soup mood or a shake mood so I stock up on both to have a choice) my CWPC lets me buy less the next week so it averages out so she might be letting you have a few extra to sample...but not mentioning the new contraindications is not on.

    Text from website and new books follows.

    *Individuals with a BMI 40 and above may not commence on Step 1, but may do so following a period of time on a higher calorie intake. Your Cambridge Consultant will advise you.

    Hiya thanks for bringing this to my attention as I thought I had read that but thought i had read wrong I am sat here in tears nearly as my tummy so hungry and my bowel (ibs sufferer) is cry in in agony too and all my CDC can say is take all 4 shakes if too much at once split them in 2 so can have 8 a day? Am I allowed to changed consultants without informing her ?

    That's a great point I didn't even think about the bmi ( and I havnt jst been reading my book) ... Yes I think u can! Jst drop her an email once you've sorted a new 1 telling her you'll no longer be needing her services as "her" plan is not for u!
