    You defo need a shaker!!! I couldnt manage without mine.

    I have been trying to have a shake before I go to work, when it comes to lunch time I tend to shake mine outside in the kitchen (to avoid drawing attention to myself in the office) and use the shaker again once I get home.

    First time I did LT I never had a shaker and I found it much more of a chore. It defo makes life easier :)

    Id say buy a shaker-They do work.
    If theres limited hot and cold water buy 2 small flasks and use one for hot and one for tea.As were not allowed milk you can shove your own tea in a food bag to take with,or visit wilkos for small tuberware for coffee.
    Im lucky we have a proper kitchen and most of the time we go on lunch in ones so i can use my shaker but i work in a small bookstore and theres only 5 people so they all know.
    Good luck xxx

    I usually mix my first one at home & drink in the car on way to work (naughty me!!!). That way, no one sees. I then wash out the shaker in the bathrooms and fill the second shake in the canteen a few minutes BEFORE it opens at 12 for lunch.....No witnesses!!!

    Hiya!!:wavey:

    I never knew they did the shakers when I first started. My chemist never told me.

    I just took a tall tupperwear container and measured my pint of water in it - or however much you use to make shakes. I sellotaped a marker across it. So at work I just fillled it up to the marker and tipped in the powder, lid on TIGHT and gave it a dam good shake. I found it no problem with the chocolate and vanilla shakes. The strawberry ones always had lumps in it no matter how hard I shook them. Wierd!!

    But worked all right for me!!

    I am lucky I use a hand blender in our kitchen at work.
    My colleagues are very supportive but a shaker is a must I think.
    Good luck! :)

    Bea - Congrats on the pregnancy! :p

    Right well that was embarrasing:busted:

    I was preparing my shake in my thermal flask and had all the bits out when one of the lads came round to make a cup of coffee and muttered "oh wow thats technical".. I felt like I was making an expeirment rather than making a shake!

    I just shook it off though and asked him about his weekend
