Looking into doing the CD

#1
Hi guys hope you are all well.
Can i firstly say how inspirational all your threads are, i am getting butterflys in my stomach reading them thinking.. that could be me one day :sigh: well i am an ex lighterlife dieter and due to personal problems i came off the diet, tried to go back to lighterlife *after putting all my weight back on :cry:* but the help wasn't the same.
Now i am at the stage in my life where I need to lose weight for myself no1 else to make me happy!!!! I have looked into CD and i am seriously considering doing it. Infact I am going to do it.
I was hoping someone could let me know the basics of CD..and is it like LL!!
Hope to hear from you guys soon..

xxxxx Jodie :eek:

Hi Jodie,
I love doing CD. I never have to think about eating, never have to plan a meal or consider anything to do with food. I never have any dirty dishes lol, All I have is one glass for shakes, one cup for tea, and one big cup for soup, and my whizzer. Oh and of course my kettle.
I like this diet so much that I have encouraged my daughter to do it for a month (she wants to lose a stone)
So jump right in and join our club.
Good luck xx

Hiya, welcome to Minimins.

On CD you have a choice of sweet powdered shakes (which you make up with a minimum of 8fl oz of water), savoury soups, bars, porridge and tetra's - which are little cartons of ready mixed drinks. The flavours of the tetra's are choc, banana and strawberry.

There are different programme levels to follow - the main one being sole source which is where you have cambridge products and nothing else. You also have to drink at least 2.25 litres of water a day ontop of whatever you use to make your cambridge meals with.

Not sure if this was what you needed to know, but I hope it helps you a bit and let us know what you choose to do.

PS: My Bro & Sis in Law did LL - my SIL lost 5 stone on it but apparently CD has a lot more flavours :).

Thanks guys, thats a great help, yes when I was doing LL, we all noticed CD had more flavours and i was told that the packs are better tasting than LL lol but i got used to the LL shakes, u seemed to get customed to the lumps, i wasn't to good at mixing it up!! haha
So with CD do you still attend weekly meetings and weigh ins? and have councilling sessions?
xxx Thank you xxx

I have a blender called a Genie and it is a lifesaver! It cost me £20 from Makro, but you can get stick blenders from Tesco which are cheap and good I hear.

Yes WI's are in weekly, mine are one on one at my CDC's house & last for 15mins ish. I wouldn't call it counselling, but you do get the chance to go through stuff with him/her, ask questions and have a chat and get your products. I love WI and look forward to it - just wish it was a bit longer, but then she is so busy it's just the way it goes.
