    Hi

    I am starting the cambridge diet on Monday and have bought a week's supply of various things - it seemed to work out at £2.15 an item - is that what other people are paying ?

    Also, although my counsellor seemed nice I am not sure that I really clicked with her - I will obviously give her a go over the next few months but was wondering whether anyone has any recommendations for a counsellor based either in central london or in se1

    I know that I can go to the cambridge web site and ask them but it is often more useful to get a personal recommendation

    Thanks

    Hiya Monty

    As all counsellors are self employed they can in theory charge what they wish.

    The recommended retail price from Cambridge for a standard pack is £1.55.

    £2.15 an item does sound very high to me and I would question whether this is correct with your counsellor.

    Thanks

    Not wanting to get into a pricing war here but £2.15? Do check that with your counsellor. It may be their right price and they may have good reason for charging that, but best to check.

    Did you get any extras, water flavours or poo powder, or mix a mousse
    That may have bumped the price up?

    I've just worked mine out and I pay £1.55 a pack. I have enough for 2 weeks and only get weighed every 2 weeks. Hoping to get some water flavourings and bars next time so that may change the price.

    Hi everyone - thanks for your various responses - it sort of confirmed what I thought and has rather reinforced my reservations....still

    I am starting the diet tomorrow and think that I will just concentrate on getting through the first week!

    Thanks again

    Do let us know how it goes Monty, and always worth talking to your CDC about things, including her pricing structure :)

    Hi Monty I buy mine every two weeks and I get 56 units of bars, soups and shakes (a mixture of) and a mixer mouse, so 57 units in total for £89.65 which works out at about £1.57 each.

    I think my CDC charges around £1.58 (??) per soup/ shake and £2 for tetras/bars....I think the igh charge for tetras & bars is a bit mean but she has a monopoly really here!!

    I charge £33 for 21 items of bars, tetra's & pack's.

    Counsellors pay more for the bars & tetra's so some CDC's charge more for these.

    Other items are priced individually. I have a price list detailing everything & I let all customers know what everything costs.

    I think it is important to know how your CDC structures their pricing & it is also important you click with them as they should be part of your journey.
