    Does anyone know why we don't need a signed Doc's letter to start Exante, apparently you do with Lighterlife and Cambridge.
    Don't get me wrong, I think it's great and so much simpler without one!

    You fill put your own medical declaration on exante. It's basically saying same as the form the doctor signs

    Gotta wonder why CD & LL don't use the same proceedure cos the Counsellors must lose so many customers due to Doc's not signing forms simply because some don't agree with VLCD's?

    I know it's crazy it's not like the doctors giving approval they're just in effect ticking the boxes

    Absolutely! PLUS, the Docs who do sign the forms sometimes charge for it...flipping cheek. Money for old rope!!

    I also think exante get away with not needing a medical form from a doc by stipulating that anyone doing TFR must AAMW (add a meal week) every 5th week, whereas on the other plans you can go to week 12? I think you can only go so long without adding a meal under medical supervision. Some people don't do AAMW with exante, but that's their choice to go against advice.
