    How to liven up Original Porridge

    I just tried an experiment - I added a couple of pinches of Berry water flavouring to my Original Porridge powder, before I put the hot water in. It was yummy! (Reminded me of Apple & Raspberry flavour OatSoSimple!)

    Such a simple idea it must have been mentioned before, but it's new to me!

    That's what I normally add too (or just mixed spice - you get the lot then!) - just thought I'd make a change today.

    (How can people not like the porridge? It's beyond me! )

    I like these porridge/shake ideas - but I don't really want to break into my precious shakes! (Whatever shake you have left over is going to be a little weaker - unless you mix the rest into some other drinks? - and I like all the taste I can get, lol! ) I suppose this would work if you were on four CD meals a day, you could get creative with your 'spare' shake!

    Hi all,

    I'm on day 6. My second day was the hardest with headaches, feeling cold, nausea etc. I took some pain killers after work and then went to bed around 8pm, that really helped - woke up the next day feeling so much better!

    So far, I only like the porridge and briks, looks like that's all I'll be sticking to. Thanks for the ideas above to make the porridge more interesting. Also, the other reason I want to stick to just these two is that the briks are so convenient for work and social events, don't have to worry about not having a blender to make shakes or having to buy a bottle of water, a definite plus over other VLCDs.

    Oh well, my 1st weigh in is tomorrow, wish me luck!
