    Hi Hun,
    Soup is chicken only (some peeps don't like it, I do)
    The chocolate is one of the shakes, you can have it hot with sweeteners in (I love that, esp with some Fibreclear in it, makes it thicker and more filling) xxxx

    If it's Lipotrim you are doing you have 3 shakes a day. There is chocolate, vanilla and strawberry shakes and chicken soup. You have 3 of these a day and 2 litres of water at least. Most people have a little more than this. You can also have black coffee and tea, (any leaf teas are allowed) and you can also have sweeteners in your shakes, coffee or tea as long as they are tablet form. You should have got a lot of advice from your pharmacist or from the DVD.

    Some pharmacists are better than others though!

    Good luck and stick to it and the results are great!

    If you put dried chilli flakes and garlic granules (not garlic salt) and black pepper in the soup, it's really nice.
    NEVER try to do soup or hot choc in the shaker!! It'll explode!
    Buy a stick blender from Asda or Sainsburys (about a fiver) and do it with hot water in the shaker body.

    you only have four if ur a man i think.. :)
    so u should have 3 per day
    soup - add hot water
    choc - add hot or cold water
    strawberry - add cold water
    vanilla - add cold water or hot with coffee

    on week 2 you can have the option of a flap jack so 2 shakes and 1 flap jack making 3 meals a day

    21 'meals' per week :)

    That's right 3 for Laydeez and 4 for men.
    If you're struggling, split the shakes in half and have 6 a day. You can't save them though, once they're mixed, as the vits and mins disappear. So split the powder and mix them freshly each time.

    No, but try and space them out, so there's something to look forward to!
    If the water is difficult to get down, have it lukewarm, it makes it MUCH easier for me. Good luck Hun xx

    That's right Liverpool. I go to the chemist by the Rocket.
    I have cheated once or twice since starting in July. Believe me, it's not worth it. Getting back into ketosis sucks!
    I've had to do a fair few refeeds because of events like holidays and Christmas etc and am on one now, coz we're going to Scotland on Saturday for a week.
    It really, really is harder each time.
    Try to just keep going.
    I'm happy to help as much as I can. (Away for a week from Sat though) xx

    First thing: NO ALCOHOL!! while in ketosis, it can be fatal! I'm being serious, read the "Sticky" at the top of the Lipotrim page about drinking.
    If you must drink, you have to do a refeed (advice about this is also in a sticky up there, but John F did a great thread on refeeding the other day, which is even better. Have a look at old posts from this week with refeed in the title.
    Basically, if you don't refeed properly before eating or taking alcohol, you can gain huge amounts of weight right back.
    I'm on day 4 of the 7 day plan and it's going fine. I'll restart after the hol, to shift the last 10lbs or so.
    Fibreclear is available from your LT chemist. VERY necessary to avoid constipation. I'd definitely get some.
    My chemist is really good. Jo, the assistant does the LT stuff and she's great. You could always swap. It's Udani Chemist on Queens Drive, just before the Rocket as you go from the Fiveways, towards the Rocket on the Left side.

    :sign0007: Sorry Liam, I should have made that clearer, like Jan says, it's 4 shakes if you get the female ones (some men would rather do 4 a day) Otherwise 2 male ones.
    Cheers, Cathy xx
