    Hiya - Cambridge do a Savoury Vegetable drink....you can get from your CDC....£6.40 per tub.....should last you quite a while....

    it's just a warming, savoury drink....bit like bovril (I think !!)

    The Marigold Vegetable Bouillon is with the oxos etc in Tesco.

    It is simply delicious!!!

    Only 1 teaspoon/1 cup per day though.

    It is only very slightly higher in salt content than the CD version and much better tasting too!

    that's the one I have. It's got an orange lid and I allow myself one every couple of days. I was told by my CDC that you should have a maximum of 2 drinks a day. It's quite salty but I love it - tastes like a hot, vegetable drink. It's gorgeous when you are really cold. I do find it also helps the 'toilet situation' along a bit, don't know why though. :eek:

    Oh forgot to say I know Tesco do it and so do Waitrose. I paid about £1.60 for a tub the other day in Waitrose. It's quite strong so you don't need loads of it in one drink.

    It's stocked with things like gravy and oxo cubes etc.

    Hope that helps :D

    You are taking in an awful lot of salt by having four cups per day, which can make you retain water, in turn it can show up as slow weight loss on the scales.

    My CDC said to have no more than one cup per day, even of the CD savoury drink.

    The marigold stuff was the first thing I stretched my diet with. I ended up not being able to control my intake and it all started to go downhill from there.

    For me the best bet is to stick to the diet :eek:
