    Your CD will talk you through all this. No bars in the first 2 weeks but they are caramel, malt toffee, chocolate, peanut and cranberry. haven't tasted the orange one. Tetras are chocolate, banana and strawberry only, but they are very rich and intense, and a bit of an acquired taste. I would only get some when I am going out and know I won't be able to take my shaker.

    The shakes are much better, as you can add as much or as little water to them as you like. Soups, well that depends on whether you like cup a soups. I don't.

    Water 2 litres minimum, more if you can manage it.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for that, I was speaking to my CDC and she said she will be able to give me bars the first week as i have been on LL and she feels i would be able to minimise my bars and obviously not eat them all at once, but on LL i only had 2 shakes and 1 bar a day and that was me hunky dory well lol as good as i could get!!

    I think its a question of taste,I love the choc tetras,not so keen on the other tetras ,I know it sounds disgusting but I put the banana tetra in my coffee I just use the carton of it as milk and just put a little in at a time it does me about 4 cups and even my hubby said it tastes nice.The vanilla is lovely as a shake with a bit of the orange flavouring in its really creamy and yummy.

    Hi tetras were great I used to warm them up for a nice hot choc or freeze them for ice cream (make sure you take them out freezer 30+before you want it ) they are better in my oppinion with a bit of water add if you are drinking them from carton.
    The shakes are great made with ice cubes and water mix you need a blender for this .Or try adding some psylium husks to them with warm water to make a porridge type food I loved this and it also helps keep you regular .Good luck hun xx

    My advice would be to get the Porridge. It is delicious and feels like eating food, rather than just a drink and really sets you up for the day. Also, get the flavourings for the water - makes a huge difference like drinking real flavoured water and not so boring.

    Good luck

    Hi there wants2bnormal,

    Drink loads and loads of water, there's some good articles in the 'sticky' section about it and it really speeds up the weight loss :)

    I only use the tetra pack's as the one's you have to mix up make me gag.

    Anyhoo i keep them in the fridge so there nice and cold and i drink them real fast to get it over and done with.
    Sometime's there a bit sweet though.

    I have 3 a day + 200ml of skimmed milk.

    Please do not but the banana milk in your tea!!:sign0137:
