    Ok just found out thanks to another fabulous person off this site that i probably can't take my sole source sachets to Australia. Im going to find out if i can take lactose free ones instead and cope on 3 flavours but WHAT IF I CANT?????????

    Ill HAVE TO EAT!!! OK huge panic. What do i do? if i have to eat what do i eat to stop me putting on weight. When you come off SS you're supposed to put on a little as your body gets used to your new heathy diet but i really cant afford to......its my best friends wedding and the dress is fitted completely. If i put on a pound it wont fit............... HELP!!!

    Taz x :confused:

    When are you going???

    It would be advisable to maybe be on the 1000 or 1200 before you go which will allow more flexibility whilst your away.
    You need to have a chat with your CDC and see what they advise.

    Apparently the Oz customs wont allow them in because they contain skimmed milk powder and there has been the foot and mouth outbreak recently.
    I go on the 30th of November and the wedding is the 14th December Ahhhhh.

    can you not take tetras. they are sealed. i remember going abroad but was allowed to carry the cartons of ready made baby milk ... same kind of thing. you can always check with the airline or the austrailian embassy . products that have been sealed are then sterilised so dont really pose a threat !
    if not you will have to eat chicken and green salad. cottage cheese.... maybe have alook at the plans for 790 and 1000 just to get some ideas.

    but when did the foot and mouth happen? only a few months ago wasn't it. And this is what Australian customs said. I'd personally rather not risk it now, too much money down the drain to take the packs and have them confiscated. I will use lactose free ones

    Post them to Australia before you go (allow about a week) and you should be fine :D

    That is one approach, and I understand many people would feel that way. But as I'm originally from NZ and my family lives in Australia, I actually really respect the approach the countries have to trying to limit diseases that will impact the environment, animals and the economy. So if they don't want it in the country, I'm not going to take it in or post it.

    but, as I say, I realise there are many people who don't share that view

    K i have rung Australian customs and anything with milk products like skim milk powder and sodium something or other will be confiscated.....it also means that you wont be able to post these items into the country.
    So no shakes or soups.
    I asked about the lactose free but i am going to play it safe. My grandma has tracked down a Cambridge Counsillor in Perth and she has agreed to supply me with my original signed doctors certificate as my BMI is still quite high. So i can take some shakes on the plan and have one just before i leave the airport and pick up shakes from this lady the day i arrive.
    As long as i see her while im there and agree to get my blood pressure checked on the monday.
    Thank god....huge stress averted......now just mini stress untill i actually secure my hands on said shakes.
