    I find it weird that the price can vary all over the place depending on the CDC. At least with LL it was th exact same amoutn every week

    Hiya,
    I don't have tetras as I don't like them, but my CDC charges £1.65 for bars, shakes and soups which seems very reasonable compared to some of the prices others get charged. So it's just under £35 for the week :)

    mine is £2.05 per bar and £2.05 per tetra pack. 40p extra each. I think the soups and shakes are £1.65 (that will be the minimum anyway)....seems quite a lot more than some folks pay.

    My cdc only charges £30 a week but may be increasing her prices soon due to the recent cambridge price increases.
    Even if I have bars or tetras, it is still £30. This is for 3 a day. This does seem the cheapest i've heard but I think she makes more in the long run as she is known to be the cheapest in the area.

    I pay £37 for a week's supply (21)- my CDC charges a flat rate across shakes/bars/tetras so you don't get penalised if you only have tetras, which I think is a good idea. It was £33 a week until the beginning July, but she put her prices up because the Cambridge prices had gone up- skimmed milk is more expensive apparently!

    When I was initially considering between CD & LL the CD told me it would cost me £60 per a week. I was quite shocked as I was led to believe that CD was much cheaper. I decided to go with LL and pay the extra £6 and get the counselling as well.

    Thing is, you get different kinds of support from different CDC's? I know some CDC's have counselling qualifications and life coaching qualifications etc, where others literally weigh you and take your cash..
    I think it's a case of shopping around just like when we buy any other service or product because CDC's are all self employed and are liable to have different over heads and different salary needs but when we find a good one we should make sure we recommend them to everyone :)

    Hi, my CDC charges me 1.75 for soups and shakes, 1.95 for tetras and 2.00 for bars. She has professional qualifications in psychology (degree) and counselling (diploma). She always gives me a full half hour one to one discussion as a minimum, upto an hour if I need it. Lets me bring back packets I don't like or have gone off. Is really supportive, gives great advice, sends text messages etc and is very flexible with dates and times. I always come away feeling positive.

    I'm so glad I picked her, the counselling is great, she explores things about how I associate foods with specific problems etc, relationships with others, self image alsorts. Like other CDCs they have to make a reasonably living and they all have different overheads. If she put her prices up I'd still go to her as where else could I buy my weeks food and get the same level of counselling and support from for the price?

    If anyone is in the Sheffield area - I would recommend her.

    I think mine are £1.70 per shake/soup and £1.90 per bar/tetra though i've recently changed CDC so may be slightly out there. My previous one charged £1.90 shake/soup and i'm sure it was £2.10ish for bar/tetra.. so when you add it up for having four a day it amounts to a fair bit of difference between them x
