    Hi All,

    I'm thinking of changing form LT to CD as I'm finding really hard to stick to it..

    Where do u get your meal replacements from each week? Is it the chemist like LT?

    Do you still go into ketosis?

    What are the losses like? (i.e its supposed to be a stone a month on LT)

    Any info would be gr8!!

    Thanks

    Do it. I did and it's the best thing I've done.
    It's exactly the same as LT, but you have way more choice in flavours and products. You still get in to ketosis, and you have a counsellor, who all work in different ways. My counsellor works from home and I go to her house to weigh and pick up my packs.
    Some do classes like Weight watchers and others come to your house.
    Weight loss is just like LT.
    Go for it- the shakes/bars/porridge are SO much better than LT.
    Good luck!

    I've just been looking at the website and I think I'm going to move over...The choice is much better plus there is a CDC in the same town (at the moment I travel 15-20 miles to the chemist).

    Thai Chilli - hope you dont mind me asking but where in South Wales to you live/go to the CDC?

    Good luck! Try to eat suitable foods and keep yourself in ketosis as it will help the transition.

    I did what you're about to. I went straight from LT to CD as I found the chemist great but his assistant of the "eat less and exercise" school of thought. The pluses are as mentioned:
    great flavours/ choices
    great counselling /support
    and like you very convenient
    the choc bars and porridge are yummy

    however i will just mention a couple of fairly minor down side points. It is slightly more expensive for than LT but this does vary from counsellor to counsellor eg I pay 1.80 per pack but a friend in B'ham pays between 1.65 and 2.00, for 3 packs its 37.80 compared to 32.00 for LT.
    And I cheat much more on CD as there is more choice and types of diets so its not as restrictive as LT !!! So retrospectivly I was more sucessful on LT but less happy with the support and product wheras now I'm still on the diet ( debateable !!!) but my weight loss has ground to a halt because of numerous distractions. That said I would have probably dropped out of the LT and regained the weight.

    So good luck in which ever one you do. Hope this helps feel free to pm if you want more info
