    cambridge
    vanilla hot with a spoonful of coffee
    hot choc, mixed with peppermint tea is nice
    the shakes are also nice cold blended with lots of ice
    have to say i had chicken soup (or poop) as its known and found it gross but some people mix it with stuff like pepper paprika chilli

    all the best x

    Everyboby as a fave mine happens to be the soup but their are lots of options with all the shakes hot and cold.
    First I would try them all as they should be eaten/drank then add but do becareful what you add.

    Hi Vicky,
    Welcom to the forum and congratulations on taking the first step together to the new you (couple)
    Darren has 2 as the mens packs are bigger ...he can also ask the chemist for 4 ladies pack (which are the same value as 2 mens)
    You can do a number of things with the shakes ...but most important you MUST have all of your daily packs...Drink a minumum of 4 pints of water ( this doesnt include the water in your shakes..its in additon to) A maximum of 10 pints of water a day!
    you can have vanilla with coffee to make a latte..peppermint tea with chocolate to make minty hot chocolate, make the shakes up with crushed ice in a blender and i am sure people will add more to this list.
    Re the flapjacks & chicken soup ..its about personal taste! Personally i love the FJ's but despise the chicken poop with avengence xx Good luck and keep stron on your first week..its definately the worst x

    Hello and welcome. As the others have said, drink plenty of water, and you can split your packs to make more drinks if you want, just add half the amount of powder to half the amount of water (or more water if you want).

    Try adding coffee to the chocolate shake mix, it gives it a "mocha" type taste, either hot or cold. Personally I hated the flapjacks and the soup was quite watery, but its a personal taste and worth trying all of the flavours to see which ones you like.

    You might also find that your tastes change during the course of the diet, and you might want to try others that you originally didn't like.

    Keep posting on here and ask any questions you want, there is always someone who will come along with answers and advice. There is a great support system in place on Minis x x x

    Welcome to you both and good luck. It's nice that you have each other, and you won't have to cook meals for OH's.
