    Hi all, was wondering if anyone has tried the veg water flavouring. I am thinking of getting some on monday when I see my cdc for when I'm craving a savoury taste in the evening.

    I'm hoping it's the equivalent of a bovril or a veg cuppa soup etc. If anyone has tried it and can let me know what it's like I would very much appreciate it as my cdc charges £6 for a tub and I don't want to waste the money if it's gross. Thanks. Zoe xx

    Hi Zoe, I was hoping you got a reply cus I was wondering about it to. xx Louie.

    You might have noticed my ticker has changed, my CDC advised me to take it in stages, so I changed it to a more a achievable target. The weight I was at 25 instead of the weight I was at 19. I think after all these years of being so big I will still feel slim.:rolleyes:

    Hi Zoe,

    I am only on Day 3 - so can't try it yet! I would be really interested to know how you get on with it........... I much prefer plain water, so don't think I will be trying the other ones - but I would be interested in this one!!

    Smile,
    Bx

    I really like the veg water flavouring - I often have it in the middle of the afternoon when I'm getting vaguely hungry, it just takes off those pangs.

    I sprinkle it with herbs and curry powder usually, and occasionally mix in a few baco soya chips. I also put a scoop into the more boring soups (e.g. mushroom) to liven them up a bit!

    My CDC says I'm the only one of her dieters who actually orders veg water flavouring - seems weird to me as I much prefer it to the over-sweet fruit ones! :confused:

    must admit im a fan of the veg boulllion marigold stuff too - but my CDC is great about it - as she says to me, if it works for you then stick at it! :)

    I also put chilli flakes in the "veg soup" pack to add a little flavour... think iv been lucky as it hasnt affected weightloss or ketosis... :)

    The Marigold veg bouillon is good. See if you can get the reduced salt organic one as it has a much better taste.

    Was that the Baco soya chips? :eek: I stopped having them on SS but started them again on SS+ (only a few!) and again now I'm on 810. I perhaps might not have done had I not found an old posting on here by a CDC, saying that she sprinkled them in her food on 810 (or 790 as it was then). So I'm thinking, if it's good enough for her then it's good enough for me, lol! :D They are so lovely, and so low in calories and carbs, that I can't believe they make that much of a difference to weight loss (unlike to taste!).

    I'll make a new posting about them on the CD main forum, and go into more detail there.

    I'm wondering about marigold too. I always use it for cooking but I bought the CD one which is lovely but mine cost £6.60. Are you sure you can use Marigold?
