    Just goes to show how desperate some people are to lose weight, they don't even look into the "legal" side of CD diet. I can't understand how heartless people can be to "cash in" on the desperation of people who really WANT to lose weight

    I would think they are either toooooo embarrassed to see CDC and Dr OR they are not overweight in the first place?????
    I cant understand why you would not only pay astronomical prices, but have to wait for them to arrive when you can go see CDC??? I understand that there are areas that are more remote BUT surely local CDC's would possibly drive to meet people who lived quite far - I know mine does????

    There could be a variety of reasons why someone would pay those extortionate prices; maybe they aren't overweight and wouldn't be accepted by a CDC or they might have a medical condition that would also exclude them from doing CD legitimately. Obviously, buying from ebay means they can embark upon a VLCD completely unmonitored. Why else would someone pay over double the price?

    They could also of been refused Lipotrim or Lighter Life as well as Cambridge Diet due to being already underweight or perhaps having a medical condition...

    On top of that while the packaging may look exactly like the real thing... but inside it could be just powered skimmed milk.

    We have all seen how well they can counterfeit perfumes, handbags etc.

    I believe this is what happened some years back in the USA and the results were very tragic.
