    Hey guys,
    i know we are not allowed 2 bars, but today I know i am going to struggle big time, no excuses, I just have that 'feeling' :(
    So normally i either a) pick :cry: or b) tell my hubby and knowing he is home i will be ok, but today my hubby and son are off to watch there beloved Birmingham city (hopefully get promoted) and its a late kick off, which means my 'danger time' between 4 - 6pm I am on my own :cry:
    I had planned to go shopping to take me out the equasion, but now decided to stay at home and watch the footie on telly ;)

    so i have alreay had 1/3 of a bar and cut the other bit in 2 for later ;)
    But now i am thinking, how much damage would another bar do, could cut that in 3 hence having 5 pieces to eat at intervals with a cuppa later ??? I could manage just having 1 shake, but i am worried about the weight loss if i do have 2 bars, they are the cranberry bars by the way??

    What do you all think ??

    I know someone who couldn't stand any of teh shakes or soups and lost 4 st on 3 bars a day.
    I've had two bars many times, just not gone over the three CD meals a day.
    You may get a bit windy!!
    Better two bars then start picking :p

    The reason your only supposed to have 1 bar, is that they contain slightly more carbs than the shakes, some people are really sensitive & those few extra carbs will knock them out of ketosis, where as others could have 4 bars a day and be fine.
    if i`m working (4 hours of hoovering) i know i can have 2 bars + 2 shakes and be fine.
    Good Luck x

    the cranberry & peanut bars are lower in carbs.....the other are all around 24.7g.
    But the cranberry & peanut tend to cause quite bad wind, so it it suggest you only have one of these for this reason.
    I would imagine 2 of these bars could be quite painful....but again they don`t affect every one in the same way. x

    When buying bars, I only buy the peanut & cranberry and have had 2 many times without problems. Then again, when eating food, my OH always says my guts aren't normal as I can eat a bowl of brussell sprouts with no worries, lol :giggle:

    was Lighter Life, now Cambridge Diet
    When I was doing Lighter Life, I had 2 bars a day when I went away. It was basically driving through Europe and I wouldn't have been able to mix shakes. I had no side effects and my weight loss was fine.
