    So I finally pull myself together and talk myself into trying the chocolate shake again and colleague said to us in lunchroom, 'God, what the hell is that smell? It stinks like really bad breath'...then she walked over to my cup and pointed at it...The shame!!!! :eek:

    Oh how mean! I keep mine in the fridge at work so it is cold and doesn't really smell at all, but you could try adding some mint flavouring to it to make it choc-mint, and no-one should ever really have a problem with the smell of mint.

    I feel like it stinks as well, I end up smelling it for aaaaages afterwards out of my cup and in the kitchen and anywhere I've been drinking it! Wonder if there genuinely is anything I could put in it to make it smell/taste nicer? Not sure what mint flavouring is, is it calorific?

    No, it's just mint essence/flavour. It's usually with the food colouring in the supermarket. You only need a couple of drops, it's quite strong.

    That's a really good idea. I might try that tomorrow, instead of my morning cup of tea.

    Yep, mix it up first thing with a hand blender, pour it into a tupperware flask thingy and put it in the fridge at work - nice and cold for lunch time. It's the only way I'm able to do the diet and work.

    You're meant to have them within 15 mins of making them. Apparantly they start deteriorating after that.

    Except my husband! :rolleyes:

    I quite like the choc shake, it reminds me of ovaltine. I usually have mine hot with some coffee or made up with cooled water with a few ice cubes in.

    I cant believe someone would be so rude as to make such a big deal of something somebody else is consuming then go and point at it so everyone can see what shes talking about! :mad: rude mare!

    I did it all the way through CD and had no problems. It's either that or don't do the diet, and it hasn't killed me yet (and luckily the flask is not see-through so I can drink it and no-one asks me any awkward questions, which they would do if I was stood there with a shaker and packet of powder).

    Hey all

    Not sure if I am teaching you to suck eggs but for ease of making the shakes without a blender I have purchased a couple of shaker bottles/flasks from CNP nutrition website. On the move or at work you just add the mix and shake. Well worth it for £3, although sometimes I miss the ice but any bar nearby will give you some.

    Regards Lee
