    Hi everybody,
    I just thought I would let you all know about what I found on cambrookefoods.com for those of you who don’t know. There is a link on the webpage that says diet well. If you click on that you can register and then you can write in all the phes, formula, blood levels etc that you have for each day. Each day that you put in information you get 100points. Each 100points equals $0.50 that you can use to buy foods. After 30 days you’ll have 3000points which equals $15 (the max you can get). Then after you order food and use your $15 back you can start up again.
    I hope this all makes sense, but if it didn’t then just go to cambrookefoods.com and check it out for yourself. nBreanna n16 w/CPKU

    Yea, and to add something to Bre’s info. Cambrookefoods.com also has a new product called a “Phenometer”. It is a low protein diet ruler that allows you to keep track of the amount of protein you have eaten in a day. It measures in Exchanges, Grams of protein, and mg’s of PHE. Its free with any order and it has helped me a bunch.

    We have about three of those. My sister loves them! I do too except I don’t use them as much as she does because for the most part I know about how much phe is in most foods. nBreanna

    I too like the cambooke foods well diet plan. I have been using it for a long time and it helps when it comes to your clinic appointment with your dietician. It has charts and graphs that you can print out that helps her maintain what you have eaten, your wellness level after eating at that level, and it keeps track of your blood levels as you take them. I also like that I am earning money off my food purchases with cambrooke and so it helps my overall cost. It is just a win win situation. However, one piece of advice I do have is that when you sign up…enter your information yourself. It is easier to keep up that way. There is an option to have your clinic do it…but it is not always as accurate as you might keep it. Also you only have seven days to enter your daily intake for points.
