    hi was just wondering if i could have maybe 2 shakes 1 day with 1 bar and the oppisite the day after would this affect the diet ?? i know the bars are slightly higher in calories but is there anything else?:confused:

    You may find having more then one bar may a: have a laxative effect or b: bring you out of ketosis.

    I have done other VLCD's in the past and the bars was always a problem for me, I would always have 2 in one day even though I knew I would spend the rest of the evening on the toilet. Not nice!

    You don't actually need ketosis to lose weight, it helps though and with keeping hunger pains at bay etc...but its not detrimental to lose the weight. Ketosis for me does not cure hunger, I still feel full on, grumbling hunger every day, have done for 7 weeks....so in my case if I wanted to have the 2 bars a day and was happy enough having the higher cals/carbs, I would. It may have a laxative effect on some people....that would actually be a bonus for me right now as well lol!

    The only thing is...it may spark of a craving for more food as they are quite sweet. I look forward to my bar a day so am happy at just the one...but in all honesty I don't know why you couldn't, maybe someone will know for deff why you can't or can.. :)

    I tried the toffee bar last night and thought it was foul! Am hoping the other one is nicer or I will have problems when out and about. I really wish they did ready made tetras like Cambridge.

    Lol they were like little ready made cartons of milkshake you just stick a straw in, like little juice cartons. But I found they also tasted better than the ones you make yourself

    I had a bar when i was out of ketosis one day and it tasted totally different!!! I got a major sugar hit from them whilst on the shakes alone, but they almost taste SAVOURY when you aren't!!! Odd!!
