    Hi Scots, and welcome to Minis, VLCD's are a fab way of losing weight, Im living proof, and if you need any help please holler away.

    Good luck for friday, and keep posting to let us know how you are doing.

    Why lipotrim and not CD to start with - they cost the same and the Cambridge flavours are just fabulous! More choice on Cambridge too

    Hope you do well whatever you decide to do!

    I can highly recommend Cambridge myself!

    Hi Scots and I'll just echo the rest by welcoming you on board. I am on Cambridge and can highly recommend it. However, my mate is on Lipotrim and of course we have been discussing it at length. From what I can gather (and I may be wrong!) CD has much more variety and a wider range of flavours. Anyway whichever way you try, drink gallons of water and GOOD LUCK

    With your meds you would have to have your Cambridge Medical Form signed by your GP - I had to since I have RA and take about 12 different meds per month, so the CDC would not have had any input or decision-making on that point other than to make sure you got your form signed first. Yes the CDC's do check certain meds on their computer for interactions via a special CD website provided by Cambridge themselves.

    Cambridge is still better than Lipotrim.

    In your opinion and personal experience with both diets??? Personally, I haven't tried Lipotrim, so can't make such a bold statement.;)

    I think that's a very good reason for doing Lipotrim. Being on many different meds, I can imagine that you would feel more confident seeing a pharmacist on a regular basis.

    Very best of luck with your appointment today. Let us know how you get on.

    Having done both Lipotrim and Cambridge diet I have found the taste of the packets exactly the same and as far as I know a lot of the product is still manufactured in the same plants and contain the same ingredients.

    CD/LT/LL forumula in the food packs is the original one founded by the Howard foundation.

    We're all here for one reason, and that's to lose weight, get support when we need it and give support to those who need it too.

    You'll find this place a great boost, somewhere to shout your successes and commiserate your little blips....and there are few amongst us who can say the've never blipped on their own journey!;)

    But remember....every day is an opportunity for you to stick to your regime regardless of what it is, so take it one day at a time and enjoy it, the rewards will come with determination and a positive attitude!

    Good luck and I look forward to seeing you about!:D

    Hi Scots and good luck for today, I know how nervous I was when starting CD and I wasnt on any meds, I think you have made a great decision to go with LT and be seen once a week.

    Let us know how you get on x

    Excellent! It's worth measuring yourself before you start. Measure everything you dare ;) Ankles, neck, thigh, knees, tops of arms aswell as the usual chest, waist, hips.

    Also, do take piccies. You'll need some great before and after pictures to show around :D

    It does. If I had to give one bit of advice though, it would have to be, don't cheat. Sounds so obvious eh, but time and time again we hear of people falling off the wagon and having trouble getting back on again. You're are entering the 'golden time zone' (hear the nice twinkly sounds in the background) :D In general, it doesn't get easier if you start adding the odd bits and pieces.

    Exciting time for you :clap: Watch it drop off. You'll be amazed :)
