    I am on 4 packs a day - I am on my 3rd day.

    However, if I wanted to could I replace my 4th pack with the 'food' option.

    2 hard boiled medium eggs and 2 tablespoons of veg (which I have got the list for)

    Would this affect anything?

    I am so frightened it might not get me to ketosis quick enough.

    Oh, I didn't realise your on 4 packs when I replied in the other thread. The book says 4 packs plus skimmed milk, but someone who has been doing CD for a while could probably tell you if you can add the meal instead.

    My CDC said she wasn't allowed to give me 3 packs anymore as she said that they are changing the diet - apparently she would have her CDC title stripped.

    How tall are you? you only have to have 4 if you are over 5 foot 8 or a man.

    As far as I'm aware you CDC shouldn't be making you have 4 packs then. My CDC is totally by the book (first time I had a BMI of exaclty 40 and she still made me get my form signed) and I have 3 packs at 5ft 7. I would query that if I were you cos that's alot of extra money.

    Well - she said it used to be that way - she has been doing it 14 years - she said that now she would be crossed off the books if they saw she was only doing 3 a day - however she was initially going to do 3 a day plus the meal but I asked if I could have 4 instead.

    I'm worried for my weightloss now :(

    Don't worry about it just ask her :) remember your CDC is there to help you and most of them want to see you do well and achieve your goal I just posted in the other thread but I'm sure she will have a reason

    if you are doing ss+ then you can either have 4 packs (regardless of height) and skimmed milk OR 3 packs and a meal from the list in the book.

    but can you chop and change in the week so for instance, have the 4 shakes a day during the week but on weekends you could do 3 + meal as you have more time to prepare?

    Thanks :)

    Don't know, hun. I can't see that it would be a huge problem, but it might cause you a bit of a problem head-wise if you have food now - especially if you feel a bit like it might be cheating. Mindgames are a killer on this diet...

    Is it worth giving your Cambridge Counsellor a quick call to see what he/she thinks? That's part of what you're paying for, hun, so you shouldn't feel that you can't x
