    I've just recently discovered the wonders of porridge and as I've 4 meals to eat a day, I was wondering if eating 2 a day would slow the weightloss? Thanx

    Its best to stick to 4 if you can I spoke to my CDC about this aswell I was having 3 sachets a day but struggling with the 4th. However since that chat I am allowed the bars now so I have a shake for breakfast, soup for lunch, shake for tea and then during the evening eat a bar...sorted.
    Love the porridge the apple and cinnamon one is my favourite x x

    Thanx Lizz, I'm not confident enough to eat 2 in one sitting, I always hang on to one before i go to bed, just in case the pig out monster wants to get me :eatdrink023:

    Yeah I am only on day 9 and I am a bit sick of the porridge. Loved it last week. I always had it last thing and preferred the plain with a sprinkle of cinnamon. I had one a day but right now I can't stomach porridge.

    I'm gonna force one down me for breakfast tomorrow though. Lol.

    Also I think I am getting bored of the shakes too. Lol. Lately I am finding it difficult to decide what I am in the mood for because I am not particularly in the mood for any particular flavour.

    Saying that, when I do choose, I quite enjoy the shakes. Very tasty.

    So far have tasted the caramel and cranberry bar. Like both for different reasons. I like the chewiness of the caramel and the overall flavour of the cranberry. Basically I have been making a bar last all day- taking little bites during the day.

    :)
