    I have just started having the crunch bars in week 4/5 and had a peanut crunch on friday and cranberry on Sunday, however, the side effects are really unpleasant.

    Without going into TMI, they make me very bloated and *ahem* windy. :eek:

    I bought the bars to take to work with me when I'm in the office as I'm starting to get bored of the tetra's day in day out, however, working in a very small office with 3 men is bad enough let alone with the side effects I've had! :eek:

    Is there anything I can do to limit the side effects - are the other bars any better?

    haven't noticed it myself.. though my tummy is a rumbler sometimes on CD. lol

    Has your CD got a shaker that you could buy for normal shakes, or could you buy a blender for work? Or have you got access to a microwave for porridge or soup?

    Yeah I tried the bars at the begining of week three they didn't make me bloated but gave me awful heartburn I only tried the peanut bars though and also they made my jaw ache from chewing. I wish I could recommend other things for you but I'm super boring and after experimenting in my first week I have since lived on the chocolate mint and chocolate shakes as they are the only flavours I like lol xxxx

    Absolutely the peanut ones did that to me too, the others seem ok and didnt have the same effect.

    Word of warning though, had two bars in a day yesterday 'I know we shouldnt', however I went out and just grabbed them and ran. OMG I now know why we are only allowed one a day, (calories pah) been running to the loo all day, bright side, mr constipation has well and truely left the building for now lol wont be doing thst again. :copon:

    Hope the other bars are kinder to you, nothing worse than sitting in an office with men and your rumblings are louder than theirs :eek:

    Good luck Lisa xx

    I think anything but the bars keep me smelling normal! though i love the odd toffee bar as a treat. I find porridge etc really stops bad farts lmao.

    I was very gassy with the bars too - not too bad with the caramel bar but it took me out of ketosis!

    Thanks for the replies guys! Glad I'm not the only one having 'after effects'!

    Unfortunately, I can't take a blender to work as it will have to be PAT tested and I really can't be doing with the hassle of that!

    I think I'll try one of the other bars next week and see if they are any better, I'll be into week 6 by then so hopefully they won't knock me out of ketosis!
