    Hi Lynne

    Not sure about the gum to be honest. I know you can use listerine strips but they are hard to find, some people get them off ebay. I am ot sure on the sweetners, they should be made of saccahrin and no sugar/sucralose etc. I use the Canderel ones aka sweetex tablets. :)

    no chewing gum allowed i'm afraid. not sure about the sweetners as i dont use any, but you are safe if they are saccarine based i believe.

    not just you - i tried the choc shakes made with peppermint tea water and i did drink it but wouldnt have it again.... i tend to suck and crunch on ice cubes when i need something other than liquid and that has got me through last week - also adds to your water intake hahaha

    good luck - if anyone knows where to get the strips from i would be interested as well.

    not just you (two!) peppermint tea also made me gag - was looking forward to the mint choc chip flavoured shakes i tried it with. didn't like it hot on its own either.

    i use the hermestas sweeteners, teeny little tablets. i think any tablet sweeteners are ok, it's the powdered stuff that's not allowed.

    ElleEmme- I was the same with the 'hot chocolate' shake. BLEURGHHHH! Just tasted of salt! Not remotely comforting and even worse, I'd wasted the shake!!!

    Just looking at your losses- wow! Over a hundred pounds!!??? AMAZING! Well done!

    I think, but don't quote me on it, that any tablet sweetener is okay.

    I tried the choc mint combo but hated it! I love minty flavours and thought mint tea would be lovely (I can't stand black ordinary tea) but was sooooooo disappointed. I did think, on Sunday when it was lovely and hot, that I wished I did like it coz a mint lolly would be lovely! Has anyone tried making them?

    Sweeteners? I stick with Splenda, it's actually a sugar derivative (sucralose) and the one favoured by Atkins... I use the powder when NOT on Lipotrim but that isn't allowed when on Lipotrim.
