    Hi - Interested in the CD. A few questions maybe someone could help me with...
    1. Is it only available via a counsellor?
    2. Does it cost to see a consellor?
    3. If I went on a program that used 4 sachets per day - what would the weekly cost likely be?
    4. Is there a minimum you need to buy?

    Thanks,

    Al

    yes you have to see a CDC, the packets on average cost £2 each so it would cost you £54 a week, some CDC charge a reg fee, but mine doesn't, you usually buy weekly supplys

    Exante is half the price, but you don't get a councillor and you have to buy online. Losses are the same. Cd have more choice tho, like porridge n tetra packs . Good luck in whatever you decide xoxo

    Prices vary from consultant to consultant - four packs a day for me is £48/week, more if I want the pre-mixed shakes. Your best option to find out exactly how much it will cost you is to email/call some consultants and ask about their prices.

    It does sound like an awful lot a week, but since I have stopped eating with the family our bills have nearly halved (not that I ate tons of stuff but I buy them different stuff to what I would have with them) and actually save £40 a week that way..... so I have it to spend on CD....

    my packs cost £1.50 each - I have teo a day and a bar at £1.90. Thus £40.60 a week for me and my counsellor comes to me and I lover her....she is very considerate x

    My packs are £1.75 each and bars £1.95 but no registration fee. Never bought tetra's so don't know

    Water flavouring is £6.95 or something...

    How come the prices vary so much? 50p per shake difference between Kirsty's £1.50 and most people paying £2 - that's a £10.50 difference on 21 packs which is a lot.(and she has no travelling costs to see the counsellor - rumbly, you are getting a total bargain!)

    I guess the CDC's get a recommended price list then charge what they like?

    My charges me £2 flat for any.

    I might order Exante to try out though.
