    One in the morning, one at mid-day (ish) and one in the evening.

    Eating only 2 wont mean you lose more weight, in fact you will probably lose less. You have to eat all of your packs to get 100% nutrients etc x

    It shouldnt be hard to have them, its only a quick drink youre having. Either have one in the morning or go for one mid afternoon but you MUST have all 3.

    did fl4i, then exante now back on WW
    I have my bar at 9-10 am, then have a shake at 1 pm, and then have my soup at 6-7 pm. If u wake up midday which I used to before ( I know I'm lazy :) Then have your first meal at 12 pm, then next meal at 3-4 pm and then have your last meal at 7-8 pm, hope this helps

    This is a MASSIVE mistake people on a VLCD make. If youre in ketosis you WONT be hungry. You have to totally forget the way you normally eat, you absolutely CANNOT rely on your body to tell you when to have a pack. It doesnt work like that.

    These packs arent food, theyre not to fill us up and stop us being hungry, theyre fuel to keep us going nothing more.

    You need to stop thinking of them as food, stop waiting for your body to tell you when to have them and think of them like a dose of medicine - you have to have 3 a day to keep you going.

    If I relied on my body signals to have a pack, Id have about 1 every 3 days

    Have to agree...we are not having the packs to satisfy hunger! They are a source of nutrition and nothing else.
    You need to have 3 packs. Even if I was hungry, I'm damn sure a milkshake wouldn't fill me up anyway!!! So have your packs regardless!

    Looking for VLCD products.
    Best advice!

    It's exactly like that, I take this diet as a rehab from my food addiction and the packs would be my meds to keep me focused on the track ahead.

    Will +rep(thank post) you Starlight, when I get home. :)

    Ok totally agree with what you have all said but I'm still having days where I'm skipping my lunch time bar but still feel great!!

    Not sure if I'm missing something but what would I expect to see happening if I continued 2 do this??

    From what I gather you'll essentially be malnourishing yourself which isn't good.

    Why are you skipping them though?

    Seriously though you're risking your health not having them
