    Hi all just started CD today - sole source its been tough. Was earlier reading another post and they mentioned the cost of meals. I was just wondering what people pay on average. I got 24 meals various milkshakes, soups and a few porridges and was charged £44 is this average ? PinkyJay

    Hi

    The CDC's have a recommended retail price, but they seem to charge differently as per each CDC. I only ever had the shakes and they cost £1.80 per pack.

    I bought my packs last night and was charged £2.19 per pack!!!! I am really upset as have now spoken to 2 other CDC and they only charge £1.75, so I am moving consultants

    The consultant I bought from also claims can only pay cash!!! surely this is not right?

    Anyway, I have now found a lovely CDC, who I am meeting tomorrow who is going to swap some of my product for porridge as first CDC said I was not allowed if for the first 2 weeks, but apparently that is not true!

    I was charged £37.80 today for 21 soups/shakes/porridges. I think she said £1.80 per sachet, and if I want tetras then £2 per pack.

    I think that for all the effort the CDC's go through - I don't mind paying a bit ontop. It's almost like a little job for them, and they are usually very nice, so what does it hurt :) You know you'd be spending a lot more on normal food! lol

    Well said, MissyL. Spending a bloomin' fortune on food, and then scoffing it, is what got most of us in the situation we're in now. I think £44 is ok for what you got PinkyJay, especially if she gave good advice and support.

    I pay £1.80 for sachets and £2 for tetras and bars. Quite reasonable for round here I thought.

    The Fibre, Water flavouring and vegetable stock stuff is expensive though. About £6.95 a pot.

    I'm really lucky as one of my closest friends is my CDC and so she sells to me for cost price which is fab and I love her for doing it!

    hey girlies, im going to see a CDC next sunday for the first time ever. Im really excited about starting the plan (not so sure i'll be saying that in a few weeks when i can the crisps shouting on me) lol. Anyways i asked the CDC how much per week and she said £36.75 for the basic diet...will the "basic diet" just be shakes or will that include the soups etc ?
