Thanks Chell - Yes I did, was nice - well the salad was - tomatoes were amazing! Found the chicken quite hard going, gave the remaining bit I couldn't eat to the dog :)
Had the same lunchtime was gorg! When can I add 5 spice?, I bought Schwartz Thai 7 spice today as 5 spice was sold out :(. Also do you know when I can start taking supplements? I want to take a hair,skin and nails formula, my fine hair has become sooo thin. I didn't see any actual hair loss as such and I always use volumising products but even so...its become even thinner!!! :(


I will be skinny again!!!
You can add spices now, you can from the very beginning!!

Im guessing supplements will be fine now too, the only reason we couldnt take things before is due to incase it knocked us out of ketosis...

Id take them after day 4 just to be on the safe side because thats when you have potato!

Went to a 'ladies night' for the choir I'm in last night. Everyone took nibbles and alchohol. i was vey good had a 1.5 litre bottle of highland spring and had it in a wine glass and made huge plate of sald crudites and picked at those. Everyone had the most delish crisps and nibbles and I didnt even try 'em! x

Day 5 Brekkie Vanilla Shake

A am really worried I half a tiny bit of my no-fat carrot cake, I'm really worried Im getting back into the habit of picking !

Does anyone know can I have lentils on day 5?

rach your lunch sounds great - did you add stock or anything to it?
Hi DD, The thai chicken? - no. I just put a breast of chicken in the slow cooker with Thai 7 spice, some dried chill flakes and paprika, left it all day on low Then when i fancied my dinner I got the beansprouts and veg and stir fryed them, cut the chicken breast up anded add the whole of the slow cooker contents (including the juice to the stirfry - ended up like the ramen soup you get in Wagamamas if you know it) and it was gorgeous!!!
I slow cook all my chicken breasts now just pop one in the slowcooker with some water, pepper and whatever herbs and spices beore work and in the evening you come home to a beautifully tender piece of chicken - doesnt shrink at all either.
Fat free yoghurt is also amazing with tikka spice - coat chicken in it or try it with tuna. xx

Rach, I think I was well into the second week before I had lentils, but I cant see any reason why you cant have them anytime after day 4, its good carbs hun.
Kered thanks- Itried your soup recipe but got a soup mix, lentils, aduki beans, peal barle etc packets from Morri's. Well I dont know if their packaging was wrog but it said to soak them overnight which I did and then put in slow cooker along with everything else. Well you can imagine i came home from work open the lid and it was just full of beans no soup!! I was very disapointed!! Decided to bin it....learnt a lesson, less lentils, less lentils!!!! x
