    It's my first week on CD
    [restart for the 4th time] , I'm on day 5 and have not cheated at all.I got seven sachets of the porridge and have only managed to eat three of them as i think they are vile.I found a CD bar in the fridge from last time and have eaten that , will it slow my weight loss down this week?

    Won't slow your weight loss, but might take longer to get into ketosis because I think the bars are higher in carbs than the shakes etc. But not having all your packs might slow your weight loss. Can't you swap them?

    I believe you can have cinnamon on the porridge.

    Do you have any shakes? I find a teaspoon of chocolate or strawberry shake powder, mixed in before you microwave it, cheers the porridge up a lot.

    Whereabouts in Sussex? I'm in Lancing, near Worthing.

    I usually add a little more water than normal to the porridge and then add a sweetner when its done in the microwave.. yummy.

    I add more water, some of the chocolate shake and some psyllium husks after I've microwaved. I also mix it with the blender first.

    :eek::eek: Well give me a shout if you don't like the soups (they're an acquired taste in my book:rolleyes:) as I have some spare shakes I could let you have. Do you go to Susie facing Brooklands park?

    Can't pm you as you haven't done 50 posts yet, but drop me a line when you do. It would be great to go out and drink water with you sometime!:D

    My start weight in June was 15 stone 8lbs.
