    Things that made my first week fly in...

    I know I'm more than likely repeating others' advice but I'm just trying to help so here goes...
    1) WATER -The water stick has beaten everyone to death I know but it is bloody magic! Think of it as a gift from the Diet Dumbledore.

    2) Coffee -obviously only if you like coffee but adding a tsp of coffee and a sweetener to the vanilla shakes -blended with ice -made it feel like i was enjoying an iced latte - YAY!

    3) See above with chocolate shake and make it an iced mocha

    4) Making the 'hot chocolate' actually palatable - blend the shake with a little cold water until its a paste and then top up in my big mug with boiling water -add a sweetener if you like. Its actually very very comforting - I sit down on front of the tv or with a book and really enjoy it - I actually look forward to it now!

    5) Add a spoonful of coffee to make a hot mocha. Same with the vanilla -actually better with the vanilla to make a lovely creamy latte -great for waking me up and filling me up in the morning.

    6) I'm not a big fan of the strawberry shakes so just blend them with ice and a sweetener and woopwoop! decent strawberry milkshake.

    7) with the 'lattes' (it sounds more exciting to call them that lol) I have actually split the sachet to make two from it -one in the morning and one to cover that mid-morning slump. It really helps me to think I've have myself a little treat to get me through the day.

    **8)(added almost 5 years after original post ) I thought I'd add here the peppermint tea tip, to save people scrolling through all the comments. Basically you add peppermint tea instead of boiling water to the hot chocolate method to make a mint-choc shake. It is really delicious, especially when you're struggling. Iwould also have made the peppermint tea before bed and let it cool over night, then blended it with ice to make a mint-choc shake. I remember all too clearly the need for variety of flavour on tough days.**

    I hope I've helped someone stick at least another day on their diet.

    GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY!!!!1

    Hiya
    I am now confused can you advice me please?
    I was told no sweeteners to be added as they are actually made from sugar in some form so your body lives of it!
    Is this right or wrong or am I thinking of a different sweetener?

    I would love the shakes if could just add a sweetener or two as I only like the chicken soup so have that three times a day and I am bored to death already on day 4!

    Lol

    Lol


    yeah I'm pretty sure you can have the tablet sweeteners, its the spoonable kind you can't have because they add sugar to it to make it spoonable. I've been using candarel and sweetex, but maybe check with your pharmacy to see if there's any particular sweetner you can't use.

    I'm sure you are sooo bored on the soup -after 4 days! Even with the shakes its a battle of wills just to keep going so I applaud your willpower lol. I hope you can now add a sweetener and the shakes, to break the monotony.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!

    Im loving the advice blackrose! I have tried most of them except the coffee. I'm not a fan of coffee but im thinking that if i add just a little bit then it might just be a new taste for a change?! I totally agree with the hot chocolate, I actually really enjoy sitting down at night in front of the tv with my hot chocolate! In fact I will be doing just that shortly lol. Splitting a sachet up into 2 during the day works really well like you say...we are all becoming very cunning haha.
    Love Tracy xx

    Just going back to things that made the week fly......

    PEPPERMINT TEA!!!

    Never really drank it before and now I LOVE the stuff! It saves me loading up with caffeine until bed time. Its also really refreshing and HOT!!! Great when u lose the feeling in ur hands because they are sooooooooo cold!

    Yup! I'm always disappointed with herbal teas cos they smell soooo good but when u drink them they taste nothing like wat the promise!!! When I make it I leave the teabag in so it gets good and strong!! I saw a really good tip on one thread which I will try later.... Make peppermint and let it go cold then use it instead of water for making up choc shake. Mmmmmm mint choc sounds good!!

    Esp since I can't drink any of the shakes hot, even when I add coffee I still think they're rotten. But can't complain cos I like them all cold.

    We're allowed any 'leaf' tea. No berries, fruit or flowers.
    From my very lenghly search in my local shops the ONLY other [aside from black] leaf tea I've found is peppermint. If anybody knows of any other please let me know! As any extra flavours are very welcome
