    Hi all, i love all the soups in the diet,i know that is weird, hehehe. But its just not filling enough, so i make my soups with 400ml , sometimes 500ml instead of the suggested 250ml, is it ok to do so?
    Thanks

    I read that a lot of people add extra water to shakes and soups, so it should be okay. I can't imagine why not, plus it's adds to your water intake ;)

    I normally split my soups into 2, and use 350-400ml for each half. I add a teaspoon of psyllium husk, as it helps with my runny tummy :eek:, and it slightly thickens the soup :)

    Hey, thanks for the suggestion, have never heard of psyllium husk before, had to google it:D. it sounds good though, i would like my soup to be thicker. Also split soup into 2 portion is clever:p, going to give that a go.

    Right... off to have half a soup - good idea as I always find them way too 'thick' tasting to eat all of! I make the shakes with 300ml and then lots of crushed ice which makes them go a lot further.

    HI. Making shakes with crushed ice is so clever, although i find it difficult to drink cold things at the moment, feeling really really cold:cry:. I have not ate anything today, not hungry, what is wrong with me?;) . There is some weird layer feeling in my mouth, maybe i am in ketosis?:D

    PP you have just listed the symptoms of ketosis lol:D How jealous am I ?! :jelous: Well done you x

    I split my soups and shakes and top them up with lots more water than it says on the packet, makes them more filling and last longer!

    It's not advisable. You should only have 1 bar a day. More than that can knock you out of ketosis and cause a laxative effect.
