    im in my first day of lipotrim, ive only had one shake and i started with the vanilla, i found it exceptionally horrid and actually gagged a few times, i found it so nasty i cant bring myself to drink the next one, and so its been like 10 hours since i had it.

    what do i do?
    i need some advice etc for me to carry on, i dont want to give up.

    did anyone else feel like this on their first day?

    all advice is much appreciated.

    Hi Alix,


    Welcome and I hope you will make yourself at home.

    The reaction to the taste of the shakes is very normal.

    The taste is the vitamins and minerals in them and this taste thankfully does go away and after awhile you can only taste the flavours...Honestly:) Otherwise I would not be able to drink them either.

    The best thing to do is to divide up a pack into two and make one half up fresh and keep the other half for later.

    You must consume within 15 to 20 minutes as some vitamins are water-soluble and will lose their nutritional value.

    If you drink a glass of water before drinking the shake this will help to dilute the taste.

    See how that will help stop you wasting a full pack.

    You must have your three packs a day otherwise you will not stay healthy.

    Hang in there!

    Love Mini xxx

    You can also add a spoon ful of coffee to the vanilla to make a nice latte!
    Peppermint tea can be added to the chocolate to make mint hot chocolate
    Ans wierdly enough paprika to the strawberry...never tried it, but some people like it xx
    Also i have 1/2 pck of a shake with double the water to dilute the taste and add to the water intake xxxx Good luck x
    It does get easier x

    Add a couple of tablet sweeteners hun, that's what I have to do and once I've added them I think the shakes taste yummy :) (Before adding them I was gagging over them too so I know how you feel)

    Keep with it Alix, it does get easier and you will probably find that you enjoy the shakes - when I first started I added loads of ice and that helps. I now only have the Choc shakes cos I love them above the others.

    One bit of advice - avoid the flapjacks they are minging

    thanks everyone!
    ive just had my second one, not ideal the timing, but i did it!
    i had the strawberry one, it was more managable than the vanilla!

    i think i need to get me a blender so i can add ice etc.

    peppermint tea? is that allowed?

    im determined to stick to it, im only allowed to be on it for a max of 3 weeks because of ym age, so i think i can do it!

    Chocolate is by far my favourite :D Yup, peppermint tea is fine, as is any pure leaf tea but none with fruits, flowers or berries in it. Glad you found the strawberry easier to take, Mini is absolute right when she says that after a while they do become much tastier as you get used to them! :)

    Wack either half or a full shake into a blender/ electris cake mixer/ smoothie maker ....add coffee 1 or 2 spoonfuls (depends on your taste) hot water and whizz... you may want to put a towel over the top so it doesnt spit put at you xxx
    If you dont have a blender or anything...YET ... make vanilla into a paste with a whisk add coffee and hot water and swizz till you can swizz no more!!!
