    did you get one of the shakers from your pharmacy? i just put the water in mine, add the shake and shake for a minute or so, don't ever have any lumps at all!

    are you putting the little grill thing back in the shaker before u put the lid on?

    The shaker - put the water in first. I put soup in the blender, a whisk just didn't do it.

    I use a smoothie maker or a blender, loads of ice and it comes out like a poor mans smoothie (good way of getting your water) if you drink it with a thin straw it fills up up more as well.

    If out and about I always use a protein powder shaker from tescos shakes them up lovely.

    Yep! I'm a LT shaker girl. Water then heaped teaspoon of fibre clear and shake powder. Grill back on top and lid and shake vigorously for 20 seconds and perfecto! No lumps!

    I had a pig out on Sun night before starting LT on Mon and I am in ketosis already! So I don't think it slows you down too much.

    Another way is like cornflour into gravy where you use a little cold water first to make it into a paste and then add the rest, I always found this useful when I didn't have 240 volts nearby to whizz it about with my stick blender.

    I use a cheap electric whisk i got from argos for £4 and its great! i get my large mug and dump the powder in, crush a couple of sweetners into it then the water and start of on a slow speed then fast. Never comes out lumpy!:D

    Just experiment about with it and you will get the hang of it!

    I got this a few weeks ago, back when I could actually have smoothies: Kenwood Smoothie 2GO - Lakeland, the home of creative kitchenware (It's currently £5 off in Sainsburys, where I got it from).

    It's brilliant at crushing up ice to make the shakes thicker, and is ideal if you don't fancy lugging around a big blender or food processor. Plus you can drink it out of the same jug you blend in, so cuts down on the washing! :D

    I think it was the lumps that put me off the soup! (that and the taste!!!) When I started I was using a Tupperware screw top cup which was handy but not the best at getting all the lumps out. Now I always use a blender at home which makes it lovely and frothy. If I'm out and about then I use a Tupperware Quickshake which does a really good job.

    I put the water in first, then coffee (if it's a latte) then the Fibreclear. Finally I add the powder and give it a good blend or shake and Bob's your uncle, yummy shake.

    Try shaking/blending for longer and see if that helps.

    Lots of ice, a glass of water and then the powder, blend for about 2 minutes, comes out a little bit like a smoothie. No lumps.

    Calm down! calm down! I've seen this on one of the shopping channels. It's a blender/grinder (no pun intended) mixer/juicer. Some cheesy american couple demonstrate it in thier "kitchen" in front of some suitably amazed friends.
    According to them it does everything, and hey, maybe it does!

    Lol I've seen that ad, I'm a sucker for late night "teleshopping"

    I use an electric whisk to make the mousse and a Argos bought blender for the shakes can't say I've ever had a problem with lumps
