    they are not allowed to do 3 packs now - it's deemed unhealthy - 4 packs will still give you the weight loss you desire.

    It all depends on your hight if you are over 5 foot 8 then you should be on 4 packes a day can't remember why but there is a reason.

    Oh? so my CDC is wrong then - hmmm - maybe she has some different info - she did say I could have 3 and a meal so it's not like she is trying to get money out of me....

    3 and a meal is soul source plus not sole source. It might be if your starting weight is a little on the high side she is worried about you going on sole source straight away, I have heard of councellors doing this before. I would as her though just for your own piece of mind :)

    Thanks caroline - I also think this is the case...my starting weight was 18st 11 but I am only 5ft 3 so maybe she was doing that for good reason - I may take myself down to 3 packs.

    Mine definitely is over 40 so that must be why :)

    So my question still is am I allowed to chop and change between 4 shakes day and 3 shakes and a meal made up of the list in the book?

    For example - I could have 2 boiled (or poached) eggs with something from the vegetable list...for my breakfast one day.

    I thought that but I didn't want to ruin anything - thank you so much :)

    I think I will treat myself to eggs for breakfast this weekend then both saturday and sunday :)

    I need to clear my fridge out too - got old veg which needs chucking.

    Gonna get some spinach as I love that.

    That sucks that you have to change when you are already doing it but you will be there in no time
