    Hi guys

    I left all my packs until evening the other day and had a bit of a wobbly (ie I cheated!:() SO I don't think doing that is wise for me...

    I was wondering what time other people have their packs - and also, does it make any difference to the weight loss?

    eg does your body go into "starvation mode" and slower metabolism, if you go for a whole day with nothing then have them all in a short space of time??:confused:

    ooh Mrs. P I couldn't fit in 4 packs at once :eek: I am on 3 but what I do is to have one at about 11.30am, then next one about 4.30pm and last one about 8.30-9pm. I find this is working well for me because it means I don't feel nibbly in the evenings. I think you'd be better off spacing them out and then you wouldn't feel the need for a nibble. :)

    I split a sweet pack into 2 - then have first half as breakfast from 9am -11am, then 1-2 litres of water.
    Then I have the 2nd half between 2 - 3pm, that means I have a soup about 6pm and then a bar about 8pm. You could do the same type of thing but rather than splitting your packs have the full one each time, have 1 hot and 1 cold so you dont feel like everything is the same all the time xx

    I try to space my packs out throughout the day, and on AAMW I treat my "meal" as another pack and space them all out fairly evenly. I don't know how scientific it is but my thinking is that if I space them out my metabolism will keep ticking over rather than leaping into action once a day by having 2 packs at a time after having nothing for hours...it seems to be working lol

    Tetra used for three cups of coffee throughout morning. Bar at lunch -13.15, shake when I get in about 5.00ish and then mousse at 21.30pm.

    I think it is a case of finding out what suits you, as everybody seems to be different :)

    I have a sachet of banana shake that I use on coffee throughout the day, I start with 2 coffees in a morning. I have a soup at about 1pm, then more coffee's using shake, at 5pm I have my second soup and then fill up with water, gt or coffee if I have shake left. I have my last sachet of soup between 9 and 9.30pm. Occasionally I'll change the 5pm soup for a shake, or make a mousse out of it, as well as a jelly from my water flavourings. I usually fit in about 4 litres of water during the day, though yesterday I had 4 1/2

    I don't have anything except about 2 litres of water and GT and coffee until about 1ish. Then I have a full pack of shake. I have the next one about 5ish, kids and OH dinner time. Then maybe the last one about 9pm. I have another 2 litres of water during the afternoon and early evening. I try and stop the water about 8pm otherwise I would be up in the night

    Hollycat, do you mean you put a little of the choc tetra in a cup of coffee? I haven't tried that - will do it today. How much do you use and do you heat it in the microwave or just add it and drink?

    Thanks guys - I think the idea of splitting a pack or tetra and using it in several coffees is great. I'll start doing that ... and try to space the rest out more. I think havin them all in the evening does have a bad effect on energy levels.
    Gem - 8 litres?? Hats off to you, ma'am!
