    Diarrhoea is a possible transient effect when first going on one of the Cambridge progs. It doesn't usually last more than 48hrs. This could be a result of the high mineral content of the diet.
    One solution is to take a bulk laxative (!) such as Fibre 89 or fibogel. Although it sounds odd to advise a laxative, this will provide bulk to the system and might help.
    Another solution might be to drink a full glass of water following the shake to dilute the effects of the concentrated minerals.
    Another option might be to take 6 half portions initally to allow the body to get used to the diet.

    Finally one of the causes of continued diarrhoea could be a latose intolerance, that only becomes evident when consuming large quantities of milk products.

    Hope this makes sense..:rolleyes:
