    After having a bad few weeks and being off for a while when i was on holiday, and struggling to get back on it when i got back and having a few hiccups here and there, I sat down and thought about what was actually making me struggle when I have found it so easy in the past. And I realised it's the constant being cold. I don't like the soup and I don't drink tea or coffee so I'm never having anything hot. That added to the general ketosis feeling was really getting me down. I wasn't sure that I could even make it through the winter.

    A few days ago whilst dragging myself around the supermarket to buy yet more food for my husband and daughter, some cuppa soups caught my eye. I bought a box purely to compare the calorie/carb levels. After comparing them calories, carbs, sodium, fat content, everything is ALL lower than a shake. Would it be so wrong for me to have 2 shakes during the day and a cuppa soup at night time?

    I am going to try this next week, starting from Wednesday and do it for a full week and see what my weight loss is. If I still have a decent weight loss, and the pick me up i will get from having something warm is enough to get me through the winter then so be it!!

    What do you all think??

    Hiya Vicki,

    I used to use them and although we were not meant too, I was always in ketosis and always lost as well!

    You'll get loads a people telling you not to do it, but I think everyone is dif and you should do what is right for you. Best of luck

    I think you should give it a go and see how you get on, I don't think it'll do you any harm to try and it's better than giving up all together, good luck with it xx

    Can you let me know , what kind of cuppa soup , brand etc. I am interested in this.
    I don;t really like black coffee so have been allowing myself 1 coffee with a splash of skimmed milk per day. I am still in ketosis and have lost 19lbs in 3 weeks. I have got about half stone to loose. I hate the lipo soup, i heaved the first time i tried it.

    I would be interested to know which ones i can "get away" with.

    thanks, Linz

    If it works for you I may get myself down to asda and get me a huge trolley and fill the whole damn thing up with boxes of Cuppa soups :p Do the cuppa soups have all the nutrients and goodness the shakes provide?? That's my concern...:confused::)

    hi vic, have you thought about cd? Their soups taste like soup! And on the 810 plan you can have a meal too and still lose about 10lb per month. Worth a try?
