    Is there any suggestion that the diet bars slow/stall weight loss?
    And when can you start having them?

    Thanks

    Hi, I think your are a ment to wait untill week 3 to have the bars to make sure you are in Ketosis. They have a few more calories that the shakes but some people have one a day and it hasnt affected there weight loss.

    Hi

    You can have bars from week three, but can only have up to one per day which replaces a shake or soup.

    Your losses won't be altered by having a bar. I had a bar a day as soon as I was allowed, I loved them all, it was great to chew again:D:D:D My losses were good and didn't alter.

    Hi Kiki

    It took me 15 weeks to lose the weight, that was including moving up the stabilisation steps. I ss'd for 4 weeks had an AAM then ss'd for another 3 weeks then started moving up the steps, once I'd done a week of the 1500 plan I had reached my goal weight.

    Good luck with your weight loss:):):) I promise you the time soon flies and before you know it you'll be at goal.

    With LL they are slightly higher cals and slightly higher carbs. This doesn't make a difference to weight loss, but some people found it made them more hungry. Personally, I have found them a godsend!

    You will find people have different tastes here! I have read of people loving the peanut bar from CD. To me it tastes like it's got antifreeze in it! I could eat it at a push though, but not choice. I personally love the chocolate one from the fridge, 2nd orange, 3rd cranberry. Hope that helps. Also I slice mine up quite small and chew each bit slowley, so it lasts much longer!:D

    Ooh, I can't wait until I can eat the bars, I'm only on day 9 and am dying for something to EAT! I love your idea of chopping them up small to have lots of little bits to nibble. I think I'm going to do that too. Treat it like a tv snack :D

    well thats when I would have had a couple of glasses of wine of an evening. Maybe some chocolate or a biscuit, so its a bad time for me. Sometimes I have all my shakes, but divide a bar into quarters, then these quarters I further slice up. Then I have a quarter as an additional snack. Not the best remedy, but its working for me. I just have to find a way of dealing with Those times when I come off SS! Mind you we will be able to have veg sticks then. I did Lipotrim a couple of years ago, and noticed that your tastes do change, so I'll have to keep up with the veggie sticks instead of chocolate. Before I started CD i had already cut down the wine, and had 1 small glass alternate nights, so thats not too hard either.:D

    Hi Annie

    I loved all the bars, but did find they made me really thirsty (which is good the more water we glug the better;))

    They are quite chewy too and I could make mine last through a whole episode of Hollyoaks:D

    They're great, you'll love em:cool:

    I had one yesterday (day 12) because I knew I wouldn't be anywhere that I could make a shake or soup between 10am and midnight. It completely brought me out of ketosis and I've been starving all day. So I guess THAT is the reason to wait until week 3

    I started CD 4 days before you at the same sort of weight, and weight about the same as you now so we'll have to share with each other how we get on each week!
