    I personally wont suppliment my diet for anything. I know that for me, if I start eating again then I will find it extremely hard to go back to just the packs and I will not jephardise (sp?) that for anything.

    But then, I'm not you so you need to do what's best for you.

    Wots the point of going if you can't eat? Well for one thing there will be lots of people there and you might have a laugh. I know that this is a biggy for me too but social occasions are about everyone getting together and the food is a side issue.

    I have managed to go to a number of BBQ's now and if there are enough people there then they don't notice you haven't eaten anything, especially if you nab a soiled plate and wander round with that or leave it in front of you.

    You can have a pack before you go if that will help or you can save you packs for when you are there. Maybe do a bar or cook a muffin or crisps or something.

    Resisting tempatation and dealing around your feelings around food is the biggest part not only of losing the weight but also in keeping it off.

    There will always be an occasion/excuse to eat.

    Doing this diet is one small part out of your life to ensure that the quality of the rest of it is soooooo much better.

    So my advice is to stick to the diet :)

    I am afraid that I would tend to agree with Chicken on this. I was on the diet for a month but came off it for the world cup. When I went back on it when we were knocked out it was way harder than I thought it would be.

    I would go 2 days with just the packs and then cheat and have a bite to eat. This went on for a week or two and I was hungry all the time and felt weak and generally crappy.

    Then I got my act together and have been on just the packets for 3 weeks and the difference between how I feel now and when I kept eating is unbelievable. Loads more energy and not hungry at all.

    So it may not affect your weight loss, but it will probably make it harder to stick to the diet, or you may not feel as energetic.

    Then again, different horses for different courses. Whatever gets you through it, but for me it is a no no.

    Well I am in total agreement with the others on this, breaking the diet will make it much harder to get back on-to-it.

    What tends to happen is that you break the diet one time and you really do intend it to be just the one you go out and have some protein and non starchy veg. You remain in ketosis and are very pleased with yourself...

    So you get away with it once and you do it again...and maybe get away with it second time and a third and some have done it more, but one of the times you try to get back on and it will not work...speaking from experience here.

    This is were the diet becomes a real, real struggle and you fall off the wagon again and again...I am sorry I ever broke it, for I can't get back SSing for more than two weeks...

    So now I have stoped as I was going around in circles.

    At the end of the day the decision and choice is one you will have to make for yourself, just ask yourself is it worth the gamble.

    It is good to get out and learn new ways of coping with food and being around food...we can never go back to the old way of doing things otherwise we will be back at square one can use these events as a training ground for the new you.:)

    I do find now I can go anywhere and be happy with a glass of water and still have great craĆ­c:)

    Hope this helps:rolleyes:
