tetra briks = ready made shakes

they come in chocolate, banana and strawberry

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!

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 )
