i think it varies, i think its reccommended to call after a few days, and see them weekly, or up to monthly if its better for them.

mine hasn't called me - but was quick in replying to a question i had for her, and i have been on LT for 12 weeks already so i guess she doesn't have to worry about me too much ;)

just out of curiosity, why do you ask, are you thinking of becoming a cdc too?

No,
i was just wondering because mine never gets in touch with me only e-mails when she wants my order for the following week.

She knows ive restarted last monday and would never e-mail/text to see how things were going so i was just wondering if this was common practise for the cdc`s,curiosity more than anything hun.

sounds like you'd do a better job than her then! a courtesy call would not go a miss.

I think you will get mixed responses, but i think 'the good ones' would call when you first start and restart every few days for the first week or two, and then maybe just occassionally after you have settled in, and just chat to you at the wi, I do know that some cdc's dont even chat much at the wi!!

its a shame really as the whole concept is based on a good diet and good support.

maybe when you reply to email you could add in 'and yes i am very well too, thanks for asking...' ;) is there another cdc near by?

and this has been copied from the code of conduct pdf on the cambridge web site:

[FONT=ZapfHumnstBT,Bold][FONT=ZapfHumnstBT,Bold]Contact[/FONT][/FONT][FONT=ZapfHumnstBT,Bold]
[/FONT]1 Counsellors must conduct a face-to-face screening
interview with the customer before any supply of
the diet.
2 Counsellors should arrange a courtesy telephone
call or personal meeting on day two or three of
the weight loss phase.
3 The Counsellor should contact the customer in
person or by telephone at the end of the first
week of weight loss. Thereafter, and until target
weight is achieved, the Counsellor should
maintain weekly contact.
4 Once the customer has reached target weight, the
Counsellor should remain in contact in
accordance with the recommendations of the
Weight Care with Cambridge programme, which
should be fully explained to each customer.
5 At each contact the Counsellor must enquire
about the customer’s well-being and take any
action as necessary.
6 At each face-to-face meeting, the Counsellor
should weight the customer and re-calculate their
BMI. Note the importance of BMI25 (see
‘Screening’ Item 7). The Counsellor should also
record regular waist and other vital measurements.
These aspects will offer encouragement and
motivation and demonstrate consistency during
the weight loss phase. All measurements and
calculations should be recorded on the CRC.
7 Wherever possible, routine contact between
Counsellor and customer should be in person. If
this is not possible, due to distance, Counsellors
must have a face-to-face meeting with each

customer at least every 4 weeks.

I usually get in touch the first few days. Sometimes the client says no though, which is their right.
If a client calls or emails I answer as soon as I can.
If a client is restarting or struggling I offer a pop in appointment in the week to see how they are going. Sometimes that is more effective than a call.

i have a lady who re-starts every week lol... i would be constantly on the phone to her if i called her each time!!!

i think the reason we have to call the a client 1st time round is because a new starter may not be aware of what the side effects.

i think anyone re-starting will know the side effects and be ready to face the first few days alone. i do suggest a mid week appt for anyone needing a little extra support during a re-start week.

maybe have a word with your cdc and let her know your concerns.

i love my cdc! she hasnt ever phoned me other than to return calls re appts but i see her every week for wi and she is very encouraging. this week i've not lost anything but i've had my hair restyled and she made a big fuss of how lovely i looked and gave me a big hug! just wanted to reply to this because i dont think her not phoning me mid week to see how i am getting on makes her any less of a great cdc. And anyway i've got you lot to lean on!!
