    I have around 100 packs left over from when I did LL last year, as I had times when Icouldn't manage 4 packs a day.

    I've had some of them and noticed that they're out of date (april may time) does anyone know if they'd make me ill?

    I haven't had any side effects so far so just wondered!

    Thanks

    Helen

    PS for those thta remember I managed to look very rock chick at my wedding at the Empire State Bulding, NY!

    Hi

    They probably would not make you sick but I am sure the vitamins would by now be worthless.
    I am no expert but I would think that is would be the main reason they put a use by date on them?

    i agree with u tange, i think it is cos of the vitamins as all the packs have a short life. i dont think they will make u ill at all, maybe have a word with your LLC who will know abit more about it, tho 100 packs is a lot to have missed out, try and have the right amount as not only will it confuse your body but ul be short of your vitamins ect which is vital on a plan like this. good luck x

    In a way, it could make you sick. The only point of the packs is the nutritional content - vitamins and minerals, etc. If they are no longer potent, which they probably aren't that means your body is getting ZERO nutrition and vitamins which I would think could have a very adverse affect on your health......I'd give it a miss if I were you, start over properly and see it as a learning curve....:)
