    I'm on SS and just bought the veg flavouring from CD but it is £6.60. I use Marigold Bouillion normally but people are saying you can use this on SS. It's so much cheaper. Do you know if this would affect weight loss?

    Hi Broxi

    Not a CDC but the official answer is no to the marigold...however many people use the low salt marigold instead of the cd veg drink.

    Personally I think its main impact is a head thing - when I did SS I wanted to be confident that I had gone "by the book" otherwise the minute you let that focus slip it can escalate to other things if that makes sense. You're only allowed 1tsp of drink a day so if it costs you say an extra tenner over the course of the next few weeks it's not that high a price to stay in "the zone".

    HTH :)

    Hi,
    I have used Marigold bullion since day 1. I don't use it everyday and when I do I don't use more than 1 teaspoon a day. I mentioned it to my CDC and she said it was fine.I use the regular one not the low salt one.
    Just my own opinion on it. I am sure there will be some for and other against.
    Hope this helps you a little bit

    Good luck xxx

    Hi

    It's here:
    http://www.minimins.com/cambridge-d...-water-flavourings-mousse-mix-quantities.html

    My own CDC told me that too. For the veg flavour each 250ml serving contains just under 12cals and 1.6gr carbs - times that by say 3 a day 7 days a week and it all adds up!

    Funny this, my CDC wasn't aware of this either. I'd read it on here somewhere and taught my CDC something ;). BTW I have a tub of the Marigold and use it occasionally. Did use the CD bouillon first, but was very pricey in comparison :eek:. Wish there was a cheaper Mix-a-Mousse alternative... :)
