    Well i met my CDC and she takes no prisoners, lol
    She weighed and measured me and took photos.
    I picked out a selection of soups and shakes from the buffett,lol

    NOT a good start- i had leek and potato soup...yuk!
    I only got 2 so only need to swap one, so far.

    I'm a little worried about the shakes now but fingers crossed i will like them:confused:

    Good luck. Meal replacements are always hit and miss.

    My preferred ones are...

    strawberry, choc and choc mint shakes.

    not as keen on soups but the chicken and mushroom and oriental ones are ok (I also didn't mind leek and potato;))

    bars...cranberry, peanut, choc and choc-orange are ok:angeldevil:

    In my opinion the worst are...
    toffee and walnut, butterscotch shakes:yuk:


    Hope this helps xxx

    Hi everyone,

    I started yesterday, I'm a newbie to CD.
    The first thing I had was the apple and cinnamon flavoured porridge, I don't think I'll be having that again, soup (chicken and mushroom) was lovely and butterscotch shake was nice. Today the normal porrigde, much prefered that one and lunch strawberry shake, which was lovely.
    My CDC gave me a sachet of everything she had to try and see which I like. So far so good, its early days yet!!
    As long as the motivation is there I hope to do well!!

    Hi sam it's different prices for every cdc but i pay £38 a week. Inc in that though she does exercise with me to tone me up, she has a vibroplate machine and a few others i saw. I'll let you know how i get on with the shakes,lol

    Thanks hevz, i have a feeling the shakes are going to be best for me over the soups.

    Good luck mswobbly, i'm glad you are getting on well so far.

    ive never tried the mushroom soup, the chilli one is ok but tomato is vile.
    other than the bars of which i like all but peanut i only have the choc mint shakes

    i started off with porridges every day and enjoyed them at first but went off them, i used to add a bit of mixed spice to them as well

    Mint choc is mmmmmmm lovely. Mushroom soup is my favourite. They are all a creamy texture but I wouldn't really say they were that creamy tasting. I add pepper to them to make them a bit more interesting. The cranberry bar is lovely as is the choc orange and the toffee one. I love the choc tetras frozen like icecream but DON'T do it to a strawberry one! I threw it away after 1 bite.

    Qwetypi- thanks for the advice.

    Well i had a mint choc and yes i can drink that no worries. I think i will add alot more water to soup tomorrow, i did add 10 instead of 8 but guess 12 would be better.
    I am so relieved i like at least one thing,lol really want to do cd as my cdc will def motivate me to be good, lol

    Yes, the idea of exercising with CD consultant is great, it does illustrate the differences in how they work, never heard of the exercise element before!

    I found when I started CD last year (now on re-start), that I didn't like any of the soups, but gradually introduced them and was then ok with chilli, veg, didn't like the others and still don't. Tried the chick and mushroom one yest, and yukkkk.

    I like the shakes and you can mix them, to make different flavours. Try the capaccino with chocolate, thats like a mocha and have you tried them hot? Choc mint is my fav one, thats nice hot too :).
