    i have seen alot of alternate recipes on here for the CWP'S like sticking a skake in the microwave to make into a cake, i asked my cambridge consultant if this was ok and she said definatly not as it take all the nutrients out of it, i want to know if she is right or wrong about this, i have seen that alot of people on here do it and say they have been told its fine, it would make it so much easier if i could acctually eat somthing solid lol

    My understanding is that is does take the nutrients out of it. However, cooking one pack a day won't hurt. Just don't cook all 3!

    Hope that helps.

    How many products a day are you on, hun? If it's only 3, don't do it. You're risking not having enough nutrients. If it's 4, some of the recipes - not all :) - are worth a go with one of your packets in a day. I like muffins but there's a bit of a knack to it. I certainly wouldn't bother with 'crisps'.

    I think personally Id be tempted to trust what my CDC says, people do post on here with the best of intentions and with tweaks etc that work for them but arent strictly sticking to plan.

    Ultimately its your decision what you want to do, but is it really worth it??

    I sometimes use an extra pack to make crisps (not my 3 main packs though). I love them, and they keep me on the straight and narrow when the rest of my family are pigging out on junk.

    If you want something solid I would go for the bars (after 2nd weeks) or try the mix a mousse. There is a bit of trial and error to the mousse but worth a go. :D. Jayne x
