    Hi, I generally do four packs a day with some of the allowed veg at tea time so it still feels like a 'proper' meal. On a Sunday though, I tend to change it to three and have a Sunday lunch of meat and veg with the rest of the family. I needed a break from food and tend to find when I'm on any other diet I pretty much obsess with what I can eat next! S&S do suggest you take a multi vitamin on days when you do three packs and a meal just to make sure you're getting everything you need. Hope that helps x

    I started with 4 packs, now I do 3 packs and a meal, you can see in my signature where I have introduced food because the losses have dropped right down! Lol :/

    My losses have stayed pretty steady, I've done 3 packs and a meal from the start pretty much. Personally, I decided that I'd rather have the meal, even if I do lose a tiny bit less each week because it's retraining the way I look at food. I don't want to finish this diet and be afraid of food and letting a single bite of anything cross my lips. My attitude towards food before obviously wasn't healthy but then neither is that. I love having that meal, it makes me feel more normal! It certainly makes this diet far more bearable and even enjoyable for me.

    Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
    Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
    We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.

    I chose to do 4 packs a day, no meal, no vegetables but I do have the milk allowance for tea/coffee. Have been on this nearly 4 months now and I am thinking of going down to 3 packs and a meal once I hit my goal. Then reducing the packs as the weeks go on, is scary now that the end is in sight.

    GOAL 1 - get into the 14st section
    GOAL 2 - get into the overweight BMI section
    GOAL 3 - get into the 13st section
    GOAL 4 - get into the 12st section

    I'm on three packs and a meal

    I feel stuffed every night after tea now
    It's teaching me good habits .
    I had a good first loss, second appeared as nothing
    But lost a lot in inches so it is working great
    I suggest the three a day ... If you have a really bad relationship with food, worth doing the three to wean yourself off for the first week then switch to four maybe?
    Think maybe if I was willing to spend more though I would of gone on the four a day too..
    get a sample pack and make sure you like everything enough to do the four a day ones too haha you could end up not really liking them so you have a meal to look forward to in the evening haha
