    I'm currently doing SS+ Option 2 (3 CD meals + 200 calorie meal) but Saturday is going to be horrendously busy for me, and it would be really convenient if I could do Option 1 that day (4 CD meals).

    Is this allowed? :confused:

    Thanks ever so for that, KD. :) I'm actually going to do Option 1 today too as I'm at work and have brought a bar (which I do every week - I only work Thursdays). A bar with Option 2 could lead to carb overload, says my CDC!

    Nice to know there's a bit of choice here. :)

    Can we not have bars when doing SS+ with meal option?

    If not then I'm in trouble this week!

    I think it was her advice to me personally, as I put weight on last week - many people are fine with bars on SS+, there's no hard and fast rule about it. :)

    Though depending on your choices, many things in option 2 have less carbs than a shake and milk, and also remember that the peanut and cranberry bars have very slightly less carbs than the shakes and soups

    What I was saying was that the meal or even a bar may be better if you are carb sensitive.

    For example

    Extra shake and 200ml skimmed milk = approx 24g carbs
    But
    Chicken with broc/cauli = approx 5g carbs.

    Also the peanut and cran bars are slightly less carbs (just a tad) than the shakes.

    Interesting, KD - thanks. :) I've got to get to grips with food eventually, so I'm going to really try with Option 2 (I'm not missing milk so not bothered about that).

    I like the fact that the cranberry bars have less carbs than the shakes! I really like them, and won't feel so bad having a bar if I just get those in future.
