    I had some slimfast the other day, to try and get used to having shakes and so we went out to buy a blender - went to tesco and got a hand blender for 3.77 it's brilliant, very quick and very easy to clean and totally cheap!!

    It's strange - I bought mine about a year ago and had never used it once ---- now it's the only thing I use! Have said to my family that as long as I have that, a jug, kettle, teaspoons and water I'm sorted for months :)

    Got to agree its the one thing I cant do without. I took it all the way to Sri Lanka with me. There was no way I was putting up with lumpy soups and shakes for a month.

    When I couldnt get to a power socket (when travelling in a van) I used the shaker and I found if my hubby shook it then there was way less lumps to contend with and it was not too bad. Unlike when I tried to shake it.

    yeah i'm on my 3rd one from tesco!! They are a great price but don't last very long unfortunately! Esp when you use it 3 times a day every day!

    I have put more expensive ones too (prob bought 6 in total over the past 2 years!), and the tescos ones are by far the best!!

    You will probably find slim fast tastes completely different to LL drinks.....!
    I was on slim fast for a while before starting lipotrim and the difference......well slim fast was much nicer ....lol.
    I dont know what LL drinks are like but good luck for your start.

    Thanks for the info, At 3.77 a blender going through a few won't be that bad!

    I'm more trying Slimfast just to get used to not having solid food so often rather than the taste, even though they are really nice and I was really surprised, I've heard that LL aren't very nice but maybe by the time I start I'll be glad to have something other than chocolate!!

    oh.. just realised why I need a blender..... just had a cold vanilla shake and the bits in it put me right off!! The taste was quite nice so I can see the potential but the bits were yucky!! I guess the hotter stuff mixes better but I couldn't get the cold vanilla one mixed properly.. bleaurgh....:cry:

    I bought a cordless blender last year for £30, they now have the exact same one in woolworths for £9.99. (so i bought another one for work!!)
    I defo recommend it cos the lead desn't get in the way when you wash it.
    It's a Morphy Richards GO!, but it is not in the WW catalogue.
