    Hello
    Just wondering, if by chance you have spare packs left over, do you have to still buy your 21 or 24 packs a week or does your CDC let you buy what you need?
    thanks

    I swap mine in and out, My cdc is brilliant like that. Sometimes life gets in the way and I get a backlog.

    well i have got this as the first week i wasnt really doing the plan for 4 days however my cdc says she cant not sell me the weekly amount because Cambridge wont let her, and if i was loosing weight they would wonder why i if i had not bought the full 21 packs a week?? i cant really afford to have these surpless packs and keep paying 40 every week for new ones!
    thanks for your replies

    can you not just leave extra days or a week between appts?
    that way you can use the extras...

    my cdc lets me buy what I want, I often get extra such as bars so that If I feel like a bar instead of a soup I've got one there, I've never asked if I can buy less so I don't know what cdc would say

    Yes my CDC used to let me buy whatever I wanted, so don't think it's a Cambridge rule.

    really.. because she said to me it was a CD rule that i must buy 21 packs because if they get an audit by cd they will wonder why i am losing weight if im not eating the 21 packs?? there would only be an exception if i were ill in hospital.

    ????!!!!! can't believe that......

    My customers just buy what they need.... cos sometimes they fall off the wagon or wotever....and don't always need to buy 21 or 28 packs.......

    or leave a few extra days between appointments, miss a week....surely you don;t have to have your appointment same day every week too....????? :eek:

    OR if all else fails - is there another CDC near you that you could switch to ?

    hope you get sorted soon.....can be tough enough to find the cash for supplies without having to buy extras you don't even need !!!!

    I always tell my clients to buy what they need. More often than not people do not need a full weeks worth, and there is no point in overselling.

    i have looked at other cdc and there is another one in my area, however i do like this lady and find it easy to talk to her.. i may just say i know that most other cdcs just let there people buy what they need.. so do Cambridge not MAKE you sell 21 or 24 packs a week to your clients??
    thank u all

    as far as I am aware and the CDC can contradict me here, but each CDC is self employed if you like, so they have to follow CDC guidelines but it up to them to sell the product..... and unlike Lighter Life you haven't signed up for a specific amount of days or packs....

    my cdc just lets me buy whatever i need, or lets me swap the sachets if i feel like it. i always have sachets left over because i often see her on different days of the week. this tuesday i won't actually need to buy any food because i have enough sachets to get me through my last week of CD, so i will just swap the ones i have into porridge:D

    I used to get like 21, 42 etc varying on when I'd see her again. Now I get stuff for 4 weeks and see her in between haha. Due to issues in my personal life I am not always able to make appointments and my CDC has a VEEEEERY busy scedule so we kind of agreed it'd be best if I had spare. If I were to have 0 packs she always offers to drop some off. She's a darling.

    i know of a couple who will only sell you a full weeks owrth as it can be annoying if you have several people on diet and you are working for several hours and people only buy a limited amount.

    On the other hand i always let my clients buy what they need, if someone has had several meals out and so missed out cambridge products then i write it in the comments on medical form so i know why i have only sold 10-14 packs to that person that week.

    I personally recommend all my clients to have atleast 2 days worth of spare packs incase either myslef or them has an emergency and dont then have the 'run out of packs 'scenario
