    Hi, just wondering if it's ok to have any bars during the first week? I know with CD it says not to at first.

    Just could do with having one today for convenience more than anything else (I'm on day 2). Have ordered a shaker but it hasn't arrived yet!

    Don't want to Jeopardise going into ketosis!!

    Thanks :)

    Hey, yes you can have the bars on the first week. The bars and other products are all the same in their nutrition and make up so it's no difference. I had to have the bars from day 1 with being on the road a lot. Never affected me. And the chocolate orange is yum!

    Good luck on your start!

    Thanks! I did read your replies before, just did have time to write back. I went for the choc orange bar for lunch :) Assuming the porridge and bar for lunch should be ok? Is the porridge nice btw? I didn't order any...

    Yes the bars are a meal replacement. So porridge for breakfast and a bar for lunch is fine.

    The bars are a great way to make sure you stick to the diet I find - especially for those of us who are out and about a fair bit, or working where you don't have facilities to prep a soup/meal pack etc.

    I've often had 2 bars in one day before and it's made absolutely no difference to my weight loss. In fact, there is not really a day that goes by when I don't have a bar as one of my 3 options. As BeeBeeSee said above, the nutritional make-up is very similar across the board so it shouldn't matter what you choose.

    As with everything though, everyone reacts differently to diets so just assess your weight-loss and adjust to what you think is best :)

    Good luck with your journey - these boards are great for support so keep checking in!

    TTFN!
