    Hi,

    This is my first time on a VLCD I have previously followed WW.

    I visited my Consultant yesterday and started the programme today. I was really excited and I am ready to do this 100%............ but then I tried the products :cry:

    I had the maple and pecan porridge for breakfast (i usually love porridge) and it was so bad I couldn't finish it. There was a taste that I can't really describe that I just couldn't get rid of.

    So i have just had the mint choc shake for lunch and again all I could taste was the same thing!

    Please can someone tell me this will get better or I will maybe get used to this odd taste? I know I can be strict with myself and really want to do this but after trying these first two I am worried.

    Thanks for any help and advice you can give me - hope I am not a lost cause!

    Day one problems

    Never a lost cause flower!!!:)

    I really struggled with all of the products and now just have the ready done shakes......

    Be gentle with yourself and try them all ! I decided that I would think of my cartons as medicine - one three times a day:8855: it works!

    Keep going and drink lots of water.

    Thanks :)

    Are the cartons nicer than the shakes?

    My CDC said I couldn't have them for the first two weeks :(

    I have started Cambridge 4 times and just couldn't stick it.....!!

    This time I'm on the plan!

    I just have the cartons and get on with them fine if they are REALLY cold.

    I wonder why you couldn't have them in your first week? Are you SS or SS+ ??:confused:

    The first one I ever had was the apple and cinnamon porridge, it was the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted in my whole life! I thought, at that point, "If they all taste like this I can't do it".
    In fact, I now have filtered out the ones I don't like and am left with the ones I actually like.
    Chocolate, Butterscotch, and oriental chilli soup - all deelish!
    Good Luck with finding the ones you like , I am in my 5th week and if I can do it, anyone can xx

    Thanks for the replies - I am on the SS and was told no cartons, bars or water flavourings for two weeks :( really hoping I can find something I like.

    I can be really strict with myself but doubt I can stick with it if I hate all the products :(

    I'm on day 4, was told no bars for two weks but the cartons were OK. I did SS+ a year ago and had porridge just for a different texture. After a week I just could not eat the porridge and moved to shakes. Chocolate is nice with hot water :)

    Hi, how are you getting on with the diet now, I was in the same position I can't stand the porridge!! If you are still struggling maybe you could ask your CDC for the tetras or the bars and explain it's the only way you c urself getting through the diet. I like others have been advised that the bars are ok after week 1
