    Hi, i am starting the CD SS on Saturday, but i am very confused. I have tried this diet once before and the shakes really wasn't as expensive as i am being charged now. She is charging me £2.20 per shake, so £46 approx a week. When i tried this diet before, i was only paying £30 a week. Is this normal? Are you all paying this much for the shakes? Thank you in advance.

    I think it depends on the cdc and if they provide mobile visits they can charge a bit more

    The VAT is the issue - if someone is VAT registered and over the threshold they have to work out what to do with the extra 20% they have to charge (which from memory - correct me if I'm wrong, someone, means they have to be turning over £70k a year so you can work out how sorry you feel for them ;) ). You can either shop around for a CDC who charges 2 quid a foodpack or less and hope that eventually that CDC gets the message about her prices.

    I pay £1.85 for packets and £2.10 for tetras and bars, I average out about £42 a week.

    However my mate, she gets any 21 products for £28 and each individual thing for £2.00. And she comes to you!

    I like my CDC so am willing to pay the extra for her cracking support!
