    Hi..
    i have a question..my friend who used to do cd told me she now gets her porridges from avidlite..she says they are lower in cals higher in proteins and lower in carbs and fats..AND CHEAPER!! now im confused..the nutritional info is as follow:

    CD PORRIDGE
    proteins--12.7g
    carbs-- 16.1g
    (sugars 5.1g)
    fat-------- 3.1g
    (sat fats 0.7g)
    fibre------2.6g
    Cals 143
    (40g sachet)

    PROTIMEAL PORRIDGE
    protein---18g
    carbs----9g
    (3g sugars)
    fat---1.75
    (sat fats 0.2g)
    fibre---4g
    Cals 134
    (39g sachet)

    i need someone to tell me its not the same or better :sigh: cos she says the porridge actually tastes like real porridge and expands to more in the plate cos its more solid..she also does their spag bol for her evening meal..at 166 cals..sounds so much more varied and appetising..AND it works out at abt £25/week delivered..im in 2 minds now so pls helppppp..this is critical:cry::wave_cry::break_diet:

    Sound very interesting. I havent even heard of that diet but anything other than shakes is a bonus. I dont know about you but the longer I do the diet the more shakes i dislike. I only like 3 shakes now hate the porridge and soup x

    was cambridge now exante
    the packs arnt meant to be used as a total food replacement hence the reason your friends taking suppliments

    i use cambridge as i know its approved as a total food replacement diet and as such is regulated by the national institute of clinical excellence and im wanting to get to goal in good health ( thats the plan anyway )

    if you would prefer to use protimeal thats your choice hun, just be aware that it wasnt designed as a tfr

    thats right, I order stuff from them but it is only the soups, shakes and certain bars that have 'mrp' on them that are designed as tfr :D but I take supplements too :D
