    What is the maximum weight before someone can join CD before having to get a Dr's signature/approval?!

    Can someone become a CD if they are not at target BMI but have lost a substantial amount of weight doing CD?

    In general it's counsellors discression at what weight they need a Dr's signature. I personally would take other things into account, any meds, general health etc.

    I assume you didn't mean, can someone become a Cambridge Diet...If you want to become a CDC you have to have a BMI of 28 or less before you can do the training. I think thats right.....the did change it......:confused:

    Hee hee....I would become a chocolate orange bar if I could...I'd taste sooo yummy.

    Anyone feel free to correct me if I got the BMI number wrong....it used to be 30 a year or so again but they changed it well before I trained, but March what when I applied....seems to long ago.......

    I believe your BMI needs to be 28 or below in order to qualify :)

    Dear All,

    Yes thats correct that you have to have a BMI of 28 or under to be a CDC.

    With regards to the BMI of clients, if they have a BMI of 40 or over then a doctors signature is required.

    Many thanks,
