The Cambridge Weight Plan Steps

Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner as it suits you, at any time.
*Every one of our meals is approximately 200kcal.
**You can choose to add a small amount of skimmed milk in 
tea of
coffee while you are on Step 2. To help you decide, 50ml of skimmed milk is around 18kcal.

Please note that calories given are approximations rather than precise values. We use official food composition tables to calculate the nutritional information for Cambridge Weight Plan products, food lists and recipes. However, the nutrients that all foods contain have natural variations and therefore we are only able to give estimates of the energy and nutrient content.

 

The higher Steps offer more gradual weight loss, and are ideal for people wanting to work their way up the Steps to stabilisation by gradually increasing their intake of conventional food.

Your Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant will guide you through the Steps and offer advice on preparation, stabilisation and weight management. They’ll also help you in the long term with advice on fitness and establishing a healthy relationship with food.

Maintenance

Congratulations! You have reached your target weight, so now you can use this Step to maintain and enjoy your new shape and life.


Different people need different amounts of calories each day to maintain their weight. Your Consultant will be able to advise you on how to work out what is right for you.


Research suggests that customers who continue to use one meal replacement product each day, such as a Cambridge Weight Plan product, find it easier to maintain their weight. Keep in touch with your Consultant and perhaps go to see them once a month to make sure you stay on the right track.
