    Just had my first Optislim soup. It was really lovely but like Heinz soup. Was very filling and made a nice change from the shakes. I think in Australia they sell a Pumpkin soup as well , that would be nice. Which shake is your favorite?

    yeah it was really nice, I have a couple more and really will look forward to them. I did put more water with it than it says but then I always do with the shakes as well. Try it , if you like tomato soup then you will enjoy it.

    ahhhh the lipotrim soups are foul!! really grainy and they taste nasty. I thought the optislim shakes were a little grainy too, maybe i just need to get used to them.

    I do 2 shakes , 1 at breakfast, mid morning, hard boiled egg, 1 shake at lunch, cup of home made vegtable soup in afternoon. My main meal is always Quorn roast or Quorn sausage sliced really thinly with veg or salad. Evening time a piece of fruit and maybe a diet hot choc before bed. It has worked really well for me.

    I have only been on it a week and have lost 7lb, so cant say what I am going to lose in a month, you have 3 months to lose 3 stone ish so it could be done. I have not been eating potatoes or rice or bread with my evening meal and I think this has really helped. I also bought the fibre that you add to drinks so I dont get bunged up.

    Dont know sorry , the stuff I got is taste free and you just add it to shakes. Think fibre gel is orange flavour isnt it?

    Dunno then, mix it up with your shake then, thats what Optislim tell you to do with theirs. Its because there is no fibre in their shakes. Dont know why they dont put it in them.

    I have just ordered a starter pack, fingers crossed it will arrive soon.

    I did Exante last year but the shakes used to give me a terrible stomach ache and trapped wind so i am glad Optislim is around as I would like to start a LCD which is affordable.

    Godd luck to those starting Optislim (including myself.....lol)

    Sarsh dont forget to get a pck of fibre to add to shakes , there is none in shakes and it says to add it. YOu still get some fibre from the food you eat but maybe not enough.
