    Apparently next week I can have bricks and bars?

    I don't really understand what the bricks are.

    I'm trying to figure out if I should just go for all shakes for my second week, or try these.

    Just wanted some info really!

    Thanks!

    Ooooo ready made!!! I may have to try one of those then -- haha so lazy.

    I don't think I'd fare well on the bars, for some reason, when I've tried that before (slim fast, weight watchers) the bars seem to trigger me into ''I wish that was a Mars bar...'' or feeling like I haven't eaten as much even though the calories are the same. They may be a good idea for a few months down the line when I'm desperate for a treat though!

    Thanks for the help!

    Oh yeh that's true...

    Can you buy extras then, once you're in full swing? Like one week buy some bars just to keep in case you have a day out or something?

    i have a weeks extra shakes as a standby at all times. comes in handy when my wee one wants a trip to hotel nhs and when my cdc has to change my weigh in day, weathers bad etc ( she lives out in the sticks )

    i dont have the bars as such but i do carry a couple in my handbag in case i get caught out and about without a shake. i also have a shaker , a couple packs and a few bottles of water in the car for the same reason

    cool!

    Sounds like the most sensible way to go about it. I know if I were caught short I'd probably cave and just go and buy something I shouldn't!

    I'll speak to her about that next week then, and see if she'll let me buy a few extra bits!

    Thank you both!

    Hi
    Hope i'm posting this right, I just wondered what a shaker was?? Where can I get one??
    I haven't started the Cambridge Diet yet and I can't remember reading anything about a shaker.

    Thanks!!

    its a bottle with a grid or a steel whisk ball in it to break up the powder

    some people use them at work or in an emergancy insted of a blender but i use mine at all times

    you can get them from your cwc, i love the blender bottles, you can get them on ebay, i bought 2 for £4.99 ( i now own 4 shakers, lol )
