    As you may know i went to see my practice nurse last week and she did a medical but refused to sign my LL form so I missed out on starting on the day I wanted, well went to see the GP today and after her telling me how unhealthy the consept of the diet was and that it was quick fix for the lazy she reluctantly signed. So now am on my way. Her comments didn't hurt in the slightest and she said because the diet included counselling she would sign and didn't charge whoppee..................:)

    Hi Lola,

    Delighted you got your form signed and it goes to show how determined you are to do thid diet when you did not give up last week.

    With an unhelpful response like that from your Doctor, just once again confirms what little help and encouragement that their is available to the public, when your Doctor could make a statement like that.

    I wonder what she says to alcoholics, drug users, gamblers etc.:rolleyes:

    You know Lola you have us here as a community only to willing to reach out and help you on your weight loss journey with empathy and understanding.

    Love Mini xxx

    Thanks for the comments. I think it gets to them that you take it upon yourself to start without thier intervention. Also I was suprised that she didn,t know of LL but chose to make the comments that she did, like "LL preying on the vunerable" I'll tell you something if you met me you wouldn't class me as vunerable but hayho.

    Well done! Ignore her - how rude is that?? Have a look at my thread about my pulse rate when I went for my last medical - that should shut them up!

    Lola,

    I dont think my GP was over the moon about the diet, but after I went for my 2nd BP check with him, well he was like a cow jumping over it.

    Was very pleased with me, they just need educating.

    Go go go. Join the gang.

    Ah I see - do thank your Doctor Lola. I never realised I was fat because I was lazy - I thought it was because I ate too much of the wrong thing! And I foolishly thought I was doing LL because other diets did not work for me - but no, it's me being lazy again. Does your Dr automatically think fat=lazy? I think we all know the answer to that one. No doubt they think blondes are dim, short people are aggressive and ginger people the product of cousins marrying!

    What a complete and utter [insert expletive of your own choice].

    She (or he) will give you some of everything for you to try it all, then you can change any on your first midweek popin if you want. I woudl say try them all because we all thingk different ones are best!

    Personally, I like them ALL. Lucky me!

    I think it depends on the LLC, we got to choose what we wanted, I took atleast one of everything except banana, and several of the ones I thought I would like the most. I would get a couple of everything, I got quite a few chocolate ones but didn't like them. You can then, like BL said, change any you don't like at your pop in and also swap a couple for bars if you are in ketosis.
