    Thank you

    So far had Vanilla shake (Husband) and tom basil soup (me )

    and i got to say on CD i hated everything but tetras ,and i really like the vanilla shake its yummy not too sweet and no powdery taste ,,The soup looked fowl but tasted ok but bland so added paprika and salt, pepper and was much more palatable

    I'm getting some herbs as i think they will make a difference as tarragon and coriander are my two fav things and if it makes it tastier then should be able to stick with it better

    I'm adding milk to this diet as i want to stay at top end of ketosis so barely in it as I'm a veteran lol VLCD girl :D.and i know from past what it does to me ..

    And my husband is adding Milk and chicken and Veg (Small portion,Not every day though ) as he should have four packs a day but only wants three. so to keep his calls at the right level and keep him in ketosis he is adding a bit and having extra vits ..

    So far so good but only a few hours in try us in a week lol

    I added a scrape of fresh black pepper & a turn of some italian herbs with chili & garlic to my thai soup last night

    transformed it !!!
    will add same to all my soups I think :D

    I think I got the herbs from poundshop

    Its great to have so many people on exante
    & compare notes

    Yeah its odd for me doing this diet as last time and with my Band we had big Forums full of people on here but exante is growing still lol so for me its quite but least we get to know each other better lol

    I like fresh herbs so ill buy some till mine are grown .But mixed herbs sound good

    I'm looking forward to next week as ill add the bars then .and start making mouses i used to love them as texture was a nice thing after weeks of liquids lol.

    How come you are using water?
    They are milky enough?
    No need for you to use milk
    pointless calories??
    (I understand why your hubby is doing it)

    Hello - if you're a veteran VLCDer, I bow to your superior knowledge!

    Good luck with it - 3 st is eminently achievable. :)

    Well, quite. We are all entitled to that.

    It wasn't a comment on your choices (which as far as I'm concerned, everyone is entitled to do whatever they like, we're all grown-ups, and you know best what works for you), but your experience. Any input you have on any of our journeys may well be invaluable.

    Best wishes.

    Glad you're sticking with it and I'm sure your hubby will do well on WS, men always seem to lose easier anyway.
    When I started last year I hated the bars and called them my cardboard bars. After my restart this year I quite like them, funny how tastes change.

    Carry on carrying on, good luck.

    second try with tap closed !!! went better filled with boiling water added shake

    turned it on high

    got it going with lid firmly on and did myself a big hot glass of banana stuff ,, added sweetener though as far to bland
