I had 4 shakes today :(


Full Member
Hey guys. I had 4 shakes again today :( I had 4 on Monday, 3 yesterday and then today I really felt hungry (first time so far) and I was like 'Ok, I need a 4th one'. I feel better that I had, but I feel like it's bad to do this, cos other people seem to do fine on just the 3. I had coffee in each of my shakes yesterday, I'm wondering if that was the key to being satisfied with just the three. I dunno. I just feel a bit crap about it, especially cos I don't want this to become a habit as I will run out of shakes too quick!

Good news tho:

I've dropped TEN POUNDS since Monday, can you BELIEVE that?! I know it's all water, cos I have been peeing like a race horse since starting this diet, but I'm still very proud of myself, I can feel the difference already. It is very motivating :)

I dunno, does anyone else find that they need that extra shake sometimes?

Yes yes yes lol read my post "I can't do this" and my diary and you will see you are not on your own honey. I think a 4th pack is much better than having something that will prevent ketosis, and it need not be forever like starlight says, we probably will find we won't need to have a 4th for long, just gotta let our bodies get used to this way of fuelling up x

I have 4 packs sometimes........ I feel like I need an extra one when I've been really active and I def think its better than eating something :)

I'm so glad I'm not the only one, lolll. I can't make it a habit cos I do not want to like leave myself too short by the end of the month. I guess you're right, it is better than eating something that could 1) take u out of ketosis, 2) possibly lead you to munching lots of other things.

I'm gonna check out your diary keelyjrs :)
If you are having you shakes in coffee, have you thought about splitting them into 2 ?
I split most of my packs, as I prefer to have smaller quantities more often :)
In the exante program you're allowed 3-4 shakes anyway so you are still sticking to TS 100%. I wouldn't worry about it, if you need a 4th shake have it. I would hardly say having 800 kcal in a day is 'overdoing it' :D

@notsoskinnymarge, I only have like a tiny bit of coffee, like half a teaspoon, it's not enough to split it really. Plus I would just end up having the second half within the next half an hour anyway, I know what I'm like, lolll

@Rebirth_Lozza, I guess you're right, 800 calories is still 400 calories below what you would have for SlimFast, so I'm still in a big calorie deficit I guess. I'm gonna try and stick to 3 today tho :)
Well done on your 10lbs!!!! :D

Yes I do 4 packs and compared to my 3 packs a day week, there was no difference in weight loss! Plus its cheap enough to do it with! :D

When I say cheap, I mean cheap in price, not quality! ;)
Haha, I'm unemployed at the moment, so it really isn't that cheap for me! It's good that your weight loss was the same, that makes me feel defo ok about it, lol
I am sooo tempted to have a 4th today. I am on day 2, but realllly struggling - i feel so so so hungry. Drinking my water, but it's doing nothing except making me need the loo more!
