Hi Jill,
To start with I tried one of each flavour or so to see if I like it or not. The ones I didn't like I took back to my CDC and she swapped it.

I absolutely love the Strawberry Tetras and the Choc Mint Shakes are absolutely to die for! I am also addicted to the choc bars, but I don't think you can have them till week 3, if I'm correct.
I also like the Potato and Leek and Veg soups. Don't like the others. I used to like the Apple and Cinnemon porridge, but find that I can't stomach it anymore. Your tastes tend to change quite a bit.
Hope that helps!
Good luck for Monday! :)
yep you do need to try them as everyone like different things ( although everyone seems to love choc mint :D ) , I would go for the shakes you think you will really like , get a few of them , then get 1 each of things you think you may like ... the only one I really dont like is the choclate shakes and the orange choc one , I actually have 2 choc mint and 1 bar a day , but do like most of the others . The soups are ok but i prefer shakes ,and I used to love the A&C porridge but cannot stand it now . You will soon find ones you like , tetras are very handy although they are very strong so I always watered them down if I had them :)

Good luck and hope you find packs you like :)

It's all about personal choice so it's good to try everything.
I HATE Tetra's I think they taste horrid! I take shakes to work with my big cup and blender (just £5 from Asda If I remember rightly), I don't like Choc Mint! But I Love Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Cappachino, Butterscotch, Toffee and Walnut, Banana....

Don't have any soups as I hate the taste, Love A and C Porridge!

Everyone is different ! I make my shakes up to 3/4 of a pint, about 6 ice cubs and blend - gorgeous!!!!!!!!!


I can do it!!

The tetras are handy, although the first one I had I didn't shake properly and it put me off them for a while, but now I have them the most, just got to remember to shake them.
I used to like the porridge but i've gone off it a bit.
The powder shakes are good too but i'm bored of preparing them so having the cartons mainly at the mo.
On my first week I got 1 or 2 of everything. Ended up giving back some of the soups as I didn't like them much.
Good Luck!!!!


Slowly but surely x

im boring but easily pleased! Im on 810 and doing really well on it.
I have two mint choc shakes everyday (I LOVE THEM WITH ALL MY HEART - they are liquid after eights) and I have either an orange or toffee malt bar too which I cut up eand eat through out the day when I feel I have to chew something.
I was allowed bars from week 1, MY CDC is the best for allowing me this. Im a bit in love with her, but only becuase she is a very caring counsellor
