    Right, having started CD a few times and planning a restart on thurs - i thought it would be a good idea o get everyone to post their best tips and tricks in one place. Hopefully this will eventually get made to a sticky for all newbies :)

    My best tip:

    **using 1/3 of a choc tetra with black coffee to make a mocha**

    put all thoughts of 'normal' food out of your head for the first 5 days, this has been the key to me finally getting beyond day 6!!!!

    Ice cream .... very filling. Crush ice cubes in a food processor or with a coffee grinder until in tiny particles, add shake, a couple of tablespoons of water and wizz in the food processor - viola a big bowl of ice cream. Flavours you don't like as shakes make a lovely ice cream.

    Split your packs to have 6/8 smaller meals instead of 3/4 and spread them out evenly throughout the day so you are only ever a couple of hours from a meal! Works wonders for getting the head around this crazy diet and the whole no eating thing!

    When you get round to having the water flavourings, try them hot. Especially if you have a sore throat they are very soothing.

    buy an ice crusher (got mine in argos), it makes all the difference to the shakes. They are actually NICE :) when whizzed up with crushed ice and some water x

    put your bars in the freezer about an hour before eating - they are far more chewy and take a lot longer to eat. Also, you can cut your bars up into tiny slices and put them on a plate in the freezer to make little individual chocs!

    Realise that life doesn't have to revolve around food and that actually you can still have a good time without it

    A long bubbly bath with a good book and a champagne glass full of sparkling water - by the time you're wrinkly you'll have forgotten about food and, if not, start on your nails! :princess:

    That's what I do too Clairelesley :)

    I also have a clothes fund. Every time I'm really tempted but manage to resist, I put a pound in my clothes fund. So when I get to goal I can go on a spending spree for some nice clothes :D

    Only problem is I just spent it all and more yesterday on new stuff and I'm only halfway there, lol! Anyway it doesn't matter, it helps to keep me going and that's all that counts :bliss:

    I love these tips, they're great.

    I'd say, do some housework, takes your mind off it, I got really stuck in the other day and forgot lunch, I then had a double choc shake, it was huge and took ages to drink. Also have a peep in clothes catalogues, think how nice the clothes will look after. I think about how many shops I'll be able to shop in when I'm down a bit more, goodbye evans and anne harvey hee hee

    Hey All

    Ive got 2 tips

    If you cut the toffee bars up into pieces and put them in microwave for 30 seconds they taste a bit like gooey toffee biscuits!

    Also if you crush lots of ice and add the recommend amount of water flavouring to it with water its a bit like a slush puppy!! ( remember those)))

    Thanks for other tips!!

    Im only on day 3 so going to try some of the other tips the further on i get

    I used to do all the 'fat' photos on the fridge etc but now i have my screensaver at work showing a photo of me at my slimmest (Aug this year :( ) I'm now a stone heavier and find it much more motivating looking at that than my 'fat photo'. I will get that stone off :) and so far I haven't touched any of the work biscuits or cakes!! I'm going with it while it lasts x :)
