Hi Sammy

Your CDC should have given you a booklet which gives more details on all the plans. What she is referring to is Add a Meal Week (AAMW) whereby you add a very small amount of white fish, green vegetable or cottage cheese - the exact amounts are in the book. You do it after every four weeks of SS.

Hope that helps.

i dont think the leaflet thing i got said anything about it :-S she just briefly mentioned it...
so does this mean i will have 2 shakes/soups per day and then have the small meal as my 3rd?

8. Can the Cambridge Diet be consumed as "sole source" continuously for more than 4 weeks?
Yes, but do so only under medical supervision. There are cases of the Cambridge Diet being used continuously for 9 months without any adverse effect.
However, our recommendation is for you to go on "sole source" for 4 weeks, followed by 1 "Add-a-meal" week in which you take 1 normal meal (which is low in carbohydrate but high in white protein and fibre) a day on top of the 3 Cambridge Diet meals. Thereafter, if the target weight is not reached, you can go back to "sole source" for maximum of another 4 weeks before breaking again.
