    Hi everyone,

    The Cambridge Diet could very well be the way ahead for me, but I just wanted to ask a question of people who are already doing it.

    I've been advised that men and also women over 5' 8" should have 4 meal packs per day. How many people who should be on 4 per day are on 3 per day?

    It's important to have 4 packs if you are over 5'8" as you won't get all the nutrients you need otherwise and your losses may be slower too as your body holds onto the lbs.

    Hi Jodie,

    Percy greenfingers mentioned in my introductions thread about being on 3 a day. Now I may be wrong, but I thought Percy was a man.

    I don't quite see how it can be so clear cut as all men have to have 4, women 5' 8" and over have to have 4 and women under 5' 8" have to have 3. Surely there is more to it than just that.

    For me it means the difference between being able to start CD now, or having to wait a few months or so, or doing something else instead.

    Mat.

    And please don't anyone take what I am saying the wrong way. I am not saying anyone is wrong or anything. I just would like to find out for sure.

    It's definitely 4 packs per day for men and women over 5'8".

    Hi Mat,

    I am 5'6 and my CDC said I need to be on 4 a day (but i haven't stuck to 4.. usually 3! I find 4 a lot!), I assume it's because of my weight. My starting weight is 22st 13lbs so she told me to have 4 packets a day. She initially wanted to start me on the plan where I have shakes AND a small meal until my bmi comes down but I didn't want to do that because the idea of no food appealed.

    I think you should take your start weigh into consideration also... lots of factors hun and I think you're right to check it out properly first xx Good luck

    Hi Mat !
    An alternative to the Sole Source programme would be the Sole Source Plus programme ( option 2 ) which is only 3 Cambridge meals ( regardless of gender or height ) plus a 200kcal meal chosen from a list of options.
