you can bring the shakes with you but you will need the shaker. If you can stomach the flapjacks they are mobile too. Tell the restaurant that you are on a special diet coz you are having surgery or something stupid like that. i did it last week at a posh restaurant and it worked!!! Your friend should understand if you explain it to her. Have sparkling water(no lemon). It looks more posh somehow when you are out. If you are in the right frame of mind to diet at the moment, dont lose that for a couple of days out. How do you know you will get it back? and because you have no time for a refeed you should use this as a test!!! just a suggestion. If I can do, anyone can!!! Of course, if you dont want to......?

Oh, the water. Just time it right. when you know you will be out for long periods without a loo in sight, drink a little less. I do this when I go out shopping with friends. i still bring my water everywhere i go. If I know im going to a cafe(with a loo) a half hour or so before, I drink my half litre etc... you can do it. and buy a cheap salad but dont eat it (if you can resist) just to make it look like you are eating if you are embarrased. but really you shouldnt have too. Hey , ive been through it all with family and friends. They get used to it. Do you have much to lose?

ive got 34lb to lose, i am in the right frame of mind at the moment and really dont want to have to mess that up for 2 days, because who knows if i will be able to get straight back on it. I will have to c if my chemist sells the shakers.

Dont come off LT just for a trip to london.

I went the other week for 2 days and managed to stick to it.

This will be a test of your willpower so dont give up you have only just started :)

If your chemist doesn't sell the shakers then try places where they sell sports formulas as they may sell shakers. I use a Tupperware Quickshake when I was out and about and that was really easy to use.

Good luck and have a super time. If you must eat then stick to very lean protein and a little bit of salad/veg but if you can stick to LT then that is best as sometimes it can be hard to get back to it after eating.

Hiya, dont give up for a 2 day trip, take your shakes....if your having trouble finding a shaker try Tesco or Holland and Barrett, near the health shakes for men! works just as well
i go to london just about every week for 2 days and have to eat out with my colleagues at lunch and dinner.....
i've adopted various methods of dealing with the not eating, and ive never had a restaurant object to me sitting there with a coffee of a pot of tea

I have sat with various people several times while they've eaten with my water. I've never asked in the restaurants if they mind I've just done it - when they say 'and for you?' I just say 'sparkling water with nothing it it thanks' and when they say 'and to eat' I say 'nothing thank you' I've never been questioned.
Friends shouldn't mind - it's your company that matters - if you not eating makes them feel bad then they have their own issues. I have found as long as I make them understand that it doesn't bother me they're fine.

You CAN do it!!! x

I went to Manchester two weeks ago for the weekend and took my shakes with me, it was fine, bought a few bottles of water when i got to the hotel and mixed them in my room and got ice from the bar, they were lovely while my friend was having her breakie.. just took shaker and a shake out with me too in case i wanted one while out... and had black tea while she was eatin and water.. we even went the pictures the last day to pass in some time and i got a bottle of water and a drinks cup with ice from them and done up my shake in the pics while she had her popcorn... was delighted afterwards that i didnt break it :):)
