    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
