Hi everyone hope you are all ok x I am on Day 8 of LT and after finding out yesterday I had lost a stone i am more determined than ever. The problem I have is that allthough I am not bothered about food I also dont feel like having my shakes. I feel sick at the thought and am finding them really hard to keep down. Has anyone else been through this? How did you get through it?

Sorry to hear you're having a hard time (well done on the stone though, that's great!!).

I struggled for a good few weeks with the shakes - I really hated them! I still find them unpleasant, but, don't really think about it any more. I just had to resolve to have them & really force them down - I know that's not all that helpful, but it's true! Don't look at them as food, just, as supplements or medicine, I think that helps a bit because they're even more horrible when you think that they're your "food".

Good luck :)

Thank you Hannah that helped me to get my last shake down. I was watching my wedding wedding when i was a size 10 and thinking about the shake as medicine to get me back to that and i got it down in record time lol Thank you for your help. It helps to know i am not alone x x

Hi Shaz, have you tried making the shakes a bit weaker ie using around 400mls of water, and maybe adding a sweetener tablet - that might make them a bit nicer for you ?

I use ice a good lot of the time. Put plenty of ice in them and blend well. A teaspoon of coffee in the vanilla one makes it nicer too. I've gone through phases of hating them all but it passes in a day or two. Make sure to take them as you need the nutrients
i put nearly 600ml of water in it. i hated the texture until week 3 an ice was a life saver. i still have one with no ice in work coz the blender is too noisy for a packed canteen but now its lovely.
Hi everyone x I tried putting more water in yesterday and that helped but i now know why i didnt want anything yesterday. I have got a cold and sore throat which i got from the kids x on the plus side i am managing three shakes a day now with the help of putting extra water in so thank you all x Hope I get better soon x Thank you all again x x x
