    Hi all.

    Just got my CD booklet in from my CDC. It says I have to contact my doctor before I can start CD regardless of BMI so that my GP can monitor if they feel the need to.

    Did anyone else do this? And did you need a note or letter of confirmation about this for your CDC?

    Says at the end of the SS booklet to consult your GP. Maybe I'll phone my CDC.

    If you are on any medication, or have a BMI of 40+ you need a doctors signature

    If you are going to be doing SS, your CDC will send a letter to the doctor to inform them

    Virtually all diets add a message about consulting the doctor when embarking on a weight loss or exercise programme :) I don't think many people do though and you will not be prevented from doing the diet if you don't, unless the medication/BMI40+ thing applies

    Phoned CDC, she said she doesn't think I'll need to contact my GP unless I have any problems.

    So I offically start the 7th Jan :D:D:D

    Right now going to take the christmas tree down cause it's in my way.
