    My LL leader put a savory drink packet in my bag on my first week ''to try''.

    Can someone tell me if that counts as one of your 4 foodpacks if you have it?

    If not, is there a limit to how many you can have in a day?

    Does it slow your weight loss down a bit if you have them as an ''extra''?

    Questions are good!

    The savoury drink is additional to the 4 packs and you can have up to two per day. Won't affect weight loss.

    Some of the others have said that they are expensive relative to similar products on the market e.g. marigold.

    you can have 2 of these a day as well as your 4 food packs

    they don't hinder weight loss

    it is in supermarkets near the gravy granules
    marigold swiss bullion powder i think its called
    green with orange lid - or purple lid for the low salt version

    i always use this in cooking as stock - never thought of drinking it before LL but i find it helps if i'm having a 'hungry' day

    But do get the reduced salt one! It's much better. Well I think so anyway. That one also comes as organic. It's usually with the gravy and stock section or the organic/special diet section.

    And we're allowed 2 cups of this marigold a day?

    If so I'm quite excited at this prospect haha

    i have 1 teaspoon in a cup

    i assume 2 cups a day would be fine, i never have more than one as i only use it occasionally when i am cooking everyone's tea and its a while before my shake so i don't feel deprived (usually happens around my totm, when i would have eaten naughty things instead)

    Yes. You are allowed two sachets of LL's brand, so the same should apply to the Marigold. No more then 2 a day. :)
