    I'm only on Day 5, but already finding the LL shakes hard to get down. I've heard many times that CD has a lot more variety, & that their products taste a lot nicer.
    Can anyone confirm this? I know a lot of you have gone from LL to CD, any advice would be great.

    Hi Cordyella

    There are many many threads on this site about exactly your problem. I have to say stick with it as it does get sooooo much easier. Try having a look at the recipies and have a go at making some crisps. I have the same routine every day.

    Caramel with teaspoon of coffee, hot for brekkie
    Bar for Lunch
    Crisps for dinner
    And a lovely hot choc made with peppermint tea at bed time.

    Boring I know but works for me. I find it difficult to get the soups down as soups unless I uses copious amounts of tobasco!!!!

    Good luck........

    Hiya cordella,
    how are you making the shakes?

    I hated the shakes at first, used to just use a hand blender and had to get everyone out of the kitchen and gulp it down with my eyes shut - :eek: that went on for 2 weeks!

    Mixing them in a blender makes soooooooo much difference - I fill a pint glass 3/4's then top up with ice cubes - whizz up in the blender - then add the pack... and drink with a straw :p

    If you dont have a blender, you can get them quite cheaply from tesco for about £15 - keep the receipt tho, I'm on my third one!!

    Stick with it it really will be worth it, also maybe think of the packs as medicine - you need them for the nutrients, and they will help get you slim and trim :D
    Hope that helps

    Hi Cordyella, not another person. Pokerstar is feeling the same way. Maybe you should both comiserate.

    Cheer up!

    Hiya

    Give it a few more days first, I hated the LL packs for the first couple of weeks but you do get used to it.

    Also how you mix them is critical, get a good mixer or aerolatter as they make a lot of difference.

    And yes there are more flavours on CD and I am glad I moved over but if you are getting benefit from the formal CBT workshops on LL then hang in there, also remember you can have bars in a few days and they help.

    Thanks everyone. I am sticking with it!
    I use a hand blender to mix the shakes as I hate any lumps, & I make them fairly thick so they are gone quicker.
    I have a blender so once I dig out the ice tray & have some ice, I'll give it a go that way, I have to say the colder the shakes are the easier they seem to be to drink, so doing it this way makes sense.
