    Just a quick question,

    I'm going to Sydney in a few weeks time, but just had a though about carrying liquids onto flights. Is that still in place ?

    I was planning on taking Tetras for the flights, but now not sure if that would be allowed ??
    Any thoughts ?

    Other option would be bars for the duration of the flight.
    Also need to think about water etc...

    Not so easy.

    I would ask the airline that you are flying with and get it in writing!

    From previous experiences, you can buy water when you have got through check in and things like drinks, as normally put in a plastic bag for you to carry. We did this with my Daughter's milk and Hubby had to taste it in front of one of the officials there...well I wasn't going to drink full fat milk!

    Definitely ask both the airport and your flight carrier what you are allowed.

    HTH!

    Dont think you will be able to take Tetra's, I went to Belfast the other week and they took my Tetra's away but they let me take the bars and the Powders. Not sure what you could do, maybe get a letter from your doctor ?, you can get water as soon as you get through the security bit so dont worry about that.

    I'm doing LL and have got a letter from Head office that explains the contents of my packs, as I am flying to NZ/Australia in December. I don't know for sure, but if Ireland are taking the tetra paks away then Sydney definitely would - as Australia is so much stricter about food products entering the country. Your bars should be fine, and fingers crossed the powders will be too

    Well not so much a "thin" disguise at the moment ! ;)

    Hey, if i were Rich Branson i'd offer you a trip home !
    And Tetras would be allowed on Virgin...and blenders for packs etc... :D :D

    Lol Tom, glad you're having a gd day on CD, did you get some chicken? lol. I went mad for it yesterday but had to resist in the evening (which was when it was for!) cos I didn't want to have too much. No bad today with it tho, will have a nibble at dinner time probs :) Even tho it's a business trip, hope you have a gd one and enjoy!

    I certainly did have some chicken lastnight.
    Went to the local Indian, ordered Tandoori Chicken Tikka.
    Got a strange look when i said "no rice, no sauce, no yoghurt, just the chicken"
    Miserable git still charged me full whack aswell ! lol

    Loved it though. :)

    If i had put more thought into it, i would've added some chilli soup as sauce, but i didn't think till afterwards.

    Hi Tom,

    That sounds really nice!!! I would keep that one as a little treat - something that you can look forward to!!
    I get a ready cooked chicken from Tescos Dehli counter when I feel the need to eat!

    Sounds gd! And charged you full price grumpy sod! Plain cooked chicken is probs best tho it's not had anything done to it except roasted so your safe with a little bit when the temptations are high! Have you checked your ketosis level today? Interested to see if tandoori has affected it atall or if totally ok :)

    I dont have any ketostix or anything, so not sure if i'm in or out.
    Either way, i wont be drifting from SS till next weigh in, so if i'm out, i'll be back in over the weekend.

    hey Tom, get yourself some ketostix, they're great and it also lets you know what you can maybe get away with if needed, like the chicken :) Makes me feel better to see I'm in ketosis too.

    Do you think being out of Ketosis would be making me feel better ?
    It's just since the chicken lastnight, i feel great, and not hungry at all, not thinking of food in anyway.
    Although, i'm sitting here freezing. :(

    Hi tomtom

    Just to answer your original question (taking tetra packs on the plane). My friend is on CD and works at an airport (airside) and she can't take the tetras' through security due to the liquid being over 100mls - so it looks like bars or powder for mixing, whilst travelling (shame really cos they're so handy).

    HTH

    Thanks Lil K.
    I had feared that was the case, dont think i'll be taking powder onboard, cant see them being able to blend it for me, and i aint drinking lumpy shakes !!!!

    Bars it shall be !
