    Hi folks,

    I'm on my second go at LL (started again today) - lost 4 stone on it last year but put a fair bit of that back on, so second time lucky!

    I read in another thread on this forum someone using the Marigold Bouillon (presumably instead of the LL savoury drink that I'm not mad keen on). I checked the nutrition info and it has 1.5g carbs and 12 cals per serving.

    I know LL says you can have nothing except what's on the programme, but will the Marigold stuff be OK?

    Thanks.

    Thank you - so just to confirm, max of 2 drinks/day of the Marigold with a level tsp of powder in each?

    Thanks again.

    Can you buy Marigold Boullion in any supermarket or just in health food stores?

    Thanks.

    I ran (ambled really!) to Waitrose and I've just got some. I am more a savoury than sweet person and I remember from last time that the savoury sachets were just evil.

    We were told by our LLC to avoid the low salt variety. The ingredients are different - corn startch being one...

    I used it all the time too - just 2 teaspoons per day though.

    You might as well have the regular one as the salt can help fight cramps anyway.

    Hi,

    I had to to rely on the boyfriend to buy these when he went grocery shopping - he got me the 'Swiss vegetable' variety. Is it okay to have this kind or is there another kind I should be having (haven't had it yet)?

    Thanks for any advice!

    lol, that really made me giggle :D

    Marigold can be a real life saver on this plan. It really closes the gap between packs.

    Enjoy@!!

    Hehe - I'm on coffee number four already this morning. Maybe I really should have gone for a savoury drink....

    I use the Marigold too and absolutely need it some days to get me through the gaps between packs. Remember though - max two per day ;). xx

    It is brilliant stuff, I used it as boullion initially then when I got into the routine, I used a sprinkle on my soups as it really enhances the flavour.

    During abstinence I bought the LL sachets. I knew it was the same stuff and more expensive, but this was my investment in ME.
    I know me and I was worried I would gradually increase the amounts if it was in a tub, so it was my way of making sure I only had 2 per day.
    Now i'm never without it. I have a tub in my drawer at work as well as 1 at home.
    I often add it to my savoury dishes as a little extra kick.
    I use the regular one in the green tub.:D
