    hi all! on day 4 and still going strong - but just noticed that CD do porridge? I dont remember that being around when I did it last year? I spoke to my councillor about it and she doesnt generally stock it but will order it in for me provided I take 7 at least... can people just tell me what the porridge is like? i know everyones taste is different but perhaps in comparison to regular porridge? thanks guys (i just dont want to risk having so many if they might potentially be that bad)....

    I would eat the porrige 3 times a day if I could. Love it. There's original and apple & cinnemon. I tried both. I now get the original so I can add to it ir real cinnemon or some shake powder etc. The first time i tried the original I thought it was vile but I love it now.

    Enjoy xxx

    oh slim sammy trust me it does get easier! this is my second time on cd and both times after day 3, its a breeze! the only difficulty i find is I become a bit anti social... in that Im quite happy to go out to a meal and have a coffee but it makes other people uncomfortable... but in terms of feeling hungry - whats hunger? ;)

    Shanny well done for doing something earlier... dont wait till ur 30 like me! I kick myself for not doing it once and for all years ago - Iv been overweight as long as I remember and wish Id done CD when i was a lot younger... although iv not missed out on anything because of my size, i think I would have been alot happier if id done it sooner! :)

    This is my first day and my first Cambridge meal was the apple and cinamon porridge. I pray to God that the rest of the products taste better. I bought a bit of everything totry in the first week, but I will not be buying the porrige again. I have a very strong stomach and there isnt much I can't eat but I had to forse this down and was onthe verge of gagging.

    I like really sweet things and prefer the plain porridge to the apple.

    The plain porridge tastes a little like semolina rather than just oaty but I think it is lovely and it is perfect for those times you just can't face another shake!

    Hi No Mercy + everyone else.

    Friday was the start of week 3 for me, in my first week I ordered a bit of everything including 4 porridges as I wanted to try as mush as possible.

    Before doing CD I used to have plain porridge oats and skimmed milk for my breakfast anyway so I thought I'd really like the CD porridges especially the apple and cinnamon one and my CDC said they were really nice.

    I know its all down to personal taste and you only have to read peoples post to see how true this is but personally I though both porridges were disgusting, to me they smelt, looked and tatsed disgusting, they just reminded me of a cross between flour and wall paper paste - yuk :jelous:

    I managed to force down three and the fourth one I swapped with my CDC, I couldn't face another one and I haven't and won't be buying anymore!

    It's a bummer that you'll have to order 7, that seems a bit wrong that your CDC is making you order a minimum :(

    What have you liked so far?

    xx

    Hi everyone,

    I personally love the porridge and have one everyday. However, i add a lot more water than the pack says as otherwise they can be a bit sickly and too thick.
    i think its wrong your cdc making you buy 7. Most cdc's let you try one before you commit yourself.

    I have a porridge every day as well, I love both flavours but prefer the plain one. But I don't like regular porridge so it's probably nothing like that. Like Aloize I had alot more water than the instructions say. It's yummy, think I'm gonna make one now actually :)

    I like the porridge and actually take it to work with my for my lunch as I find it really filling. I get some funny looks having porridge for lunch mind you.
