Ive been on this diet before and lost quite a bit of weight.
Due to different reasons, I put it back on, but I think it depends on how motivated you are anyway.
As Ive never had the councilling side of things, I dont know what difference it makes, but there are a few girls on here who have switched from LL to CD as its the same kind of diet. Im not sure but I think u get more flavour options with CD.
Good Luck !!


Trying to stay healthy!
hi Rainbow27, good luck with your appt tonight. I have never had the counselling anyway so i don't know what it would be like, but i find a 15-20 min chat with my counsellor every week really useful and enough for me. Also rading lots of motivational and insprirational posts on here useful too for how i will prepare for my maintenance stage.

Good luck on your appt tonight. Personally speaking I think it depends on what your counsellor is like. My first one with CD was really horrid if I had a bad week, and when I got into a routine of 4lb a week told me I must be cheating and I shouldn't bother doing the diet. My second was lovely, but I needed a bit more to keep me motivated.
I've just started w8 which I find a great in between diet. The self help materials really help, and I'm using them properly, but it is cheaper than LL and doesn't have the group sessions which I would detest.

At the end of the day, go with what suits you. If you think you can build a good rapport with your CDC then go for it.

Good luck :)

The first time I did CD, I had switched across from LL. I had a brilliant counsellor who gave me more support than the LLC. Found the LL counselling sessions didn't help me at all, although I know plenty of ppl who found them useful. Switching across saved me 50% (altho prices have changed now and are a little higher due to inflation etc) and I get 1-to-1 support when I need it, on my terms, which I am very grateful for. I can be in and out if I want, or I can stop and chat if there's something troubling me!

Like everyone says it depends what your cdc is like.... Also, what do you need the extra coucelling for whe you have a whole forum of amazingly supportive people who can give you friendship, advice and encouragement?

Though saying that I have nooo idea what LLC sessions are like, so maybe its something completely different!
