    Hi Guy's
    1st day today and im a bit left and right about proper portions per day
    I have had a shake and soup and plenty of water is that correct for men?:confused:

    Also does anyone know how to make the stuff taste better both items i have had today just taste like chalky water:jelous:

    There has to be ways i thought of warming the vanilla shake and adding coffee is that allowed?

    Any input would be gratefully recieved;)

    one spoon full of instant coffee in the vanilla shake, helps. Chilli powder or pepper in the soup, helps. Using a blender and beating the hell out of them, helps. Thinking of them as medicine to make make you thinner, helps. But whatever you do they will never taste good as it part of the idea to wean us off eating.

    If you can keep at this diet the results are fantastic more pounds lost per week than most diets manage in a month.

    I set myself mini targets such as - get through today - last to end of the week etc etc

    Good luck

    Personally Craig, I think that making them with hot water makes them more disgusting than ever! But at the end of the day it's all down to personal taste!

    Good luck, the results are more than with it x

    oh god i so agree there, some love it but i cant drink them at all warm apart from the soup which has to be bioling hot so have to sip it, even warm it tastes horrid:jelous:

    the vanilla i add, ice, water, coffee and sweetners blend and its yummy

    the choc i do same as above

    the strawberry i just add ice and water, its sweet enough now for me, sometimes i can drink the strawberry with just water, but has to be more then stated so its more watery, too thick and im gipping

    the soup, i blend warm with pepper, lots of water and a drop or two of bouilion, then heat till red hot in micro wave, then sip, its yummy:D

    With the choc shake....I sometimes make it to taste like mint hot choc.....soak some mint in hot water...remove the leaves after stewing for a couple of mins and it to the shake when blending with water. Not too bad!

    Adding sweeteners to shakes does help them go down better i think. I read on another post on here that if you make a peppermint tea and then add the water to a chocolate shake it makes Hot mint chocolate shake! I am going to try this - hehe.
    Best of luck, luv Chesca x

    Cold peppermint tea... In chocolate, but I use 350ml of peppermint tea

    And I've always made the soup with 400ml

    If it's the chalky taste you don't like definately mix with more liquid

    if you want a really fruity strawberry shake, then make a strong raspberry leaf tea, not just like twinings not allowed, but they sell rasberry LEAF teabags in holland and barrets, 1.29 for 20, bargain, lovely to drink alone too as a change to black coffee, but anyway let it cool then blend with your strawberry shake, its fantastic

    totally agree, i do all of these things :)
    I also find if you add a bit extra water to the soup, it's less chalky, but deffo boiling water and everything else ice cold and 2x hermesetes.
    The blender is an absolute must, the shakers are a waste of time and everything usually ends up on the floor or on yourself.

    Hi. I must agree about shakes. They are not fun. Some people recommend making the choc shake with hot water and it tastes like hot choc but personally I find that awful. I find the best way to take shakes is to make them with really cold water, add ice cubes and shake till your arm drops off or you can get a mini battery operated blender that works well. I think Betterware sell them.
