    Convince yourself you like it. ;) A lot of it may by psychological, or may indeed be genuine. But since you cannot add anything to the packs, you are kind of stuck.

    I did find some shake flavours, for me, required a lot of sweetners added - mainly the chocolate. I never used them before, but added them and it made a huge difference.

    Jus ttry not to think of it ias food - but more as nutrition....and then just drinkt hem down.

    You may find your taste change as you go to.

    BUt you really are kind of stuck so I would start convinving yourself you like them. THe mind is a powerful tool.

    Good luck!!

    If it makes you feel better, I hardly like any flavours and I've been on the diet 16 weeks - lost nearly 4 stone.

    I have 3 veg soups a day (1 or 2 made into 'crisps') and a bar (either nut fudge, peanut or cranberry) - that's it!

    I recommend keep trying some of the flavours, sometimes they can grow on you.

    Keep going! If I can survive this long on my limited packs anyone can!

    Try some of the unofficial LL recipes too. x

    The way I coped with it ( the first time I tasted the chicken soup I was nearly sick!)
    I told myself it's not food. It's not trying to taste "gourmet". It's just a way of ensuring I get the right vitamins and minerals while I lose my weight.
    It tastes better than most medicines. It's a lot less drastic than surgery.
    I just stuck to the few I could stomach.
    Vanilla for breakfast, sometimes with a spoonful of coffee added.
    Thai chilli x 2 during the day with Tabasco habanero and salt added.
    Chocolate in the evening (BLs tip of added sweeteners worked for me too).
    I also used the Marigold savoury drink, max of 2 teaspoons per day.
    THe water flavourings also helped.
    Amazingly I did eventually get used to the taste of the chicken flavour.
    It's true what BL says- a lot of it is in the mind.
    We both did the best part of a year on packs. It is possible.
    Good luck.

    The way I am treating the food is that it is not food.

    I clearly have an issue with food and eating. Probably addicted. If I was a drug addict, the Dr would cut me off, like wise if I smoked....it wouldn't be have a little bit of cocaine and cut down...however NUTRITION is required to survive. I am seeing these food packs as sustinance and not food. They are keeping me alive whilst I deal with my addiction. The taste is irrelevent to me.

    But I really do like most of the flavours apart from the lemon bar and tomato soup...so I guess I am lucky.

    I really see this as a therapy with weight loss, as opposed to a weight loss process.

    good luck and the keep trying things out. Try mixing the flavours.
