    Hi all,
    I'm brand new to the CD, first day today and start wasn't great - i threw up the shake!! hope lunch time is better! :D

    Anyway, the point of this post is i've been quoted two different prices for the sachets - £1.75 and £1.80, which might not seem a lot but over time i'm sure will make a big difference for someone who has to count all her pennies - just wondering if this is usual? Surely they should all be the same price? Anyone happy to share how much they pay, as i'm thinking that maybe i should shop around....?

    Thanks all!

    My CDC charges £1.90 for all products, so it sounds like you're getting a bargain either way!

    Thanks all! Looks like variation is normal, doesn't seem right though as i assume they all pay the same bulk price for the products?

    I pay £1.85 for all products.
    When I did it last time it was £1.80.

    They are allowed to charge what they like as self employed so worth shopping around.

    Hiya, my CDC charges £1.85 for sachets and £2.00 or bars and Tetras.

    I think the CDC's make up their own prices (within reason) for their products.

    Good luck with your journey.

    My CDC can't be bothered with the math. She usually charges a flat 40 pounds -- whether you take all shakes, soups, tetras, or a mixture with bars and porridges included. She said it all works out in the end, as some want all tetras, some all shakes, and some a mixture.

    As I switched from another CDC who was charging 38 pounds -- she gave me that rate. She does it as a job, but she is not just "in it" for the money. She believes in helping people who want to lose weight -- she did the diet herself and lost a lot of weight for her wedding a couple of years ago and is keeping it off.
