    I was really struggling until I realised that the earlier in the day I eat the more I'm tempted to cheat so now I'm on the coffee and water til about 6pm when I have 2x chilli packs (the w8 chilli is delicious!) together then at about 9 I'll have a porridge and about 10 a shake.

    Was just curious what everyone elses routine was :)

    Same here - i couldn't go all day without anything! I have a choc shake for breakfast before work, a bar or a shake at about 12, another shake at 4ish and then my final shake at 8 after daughter has been put to bed. I don't experience any hunger at all spacing them out, and my body is starting to "know" when it's time for the next shake.

    I tend to wait till about 11 ish to have my first pack which is almost always porridge. Sometimes I have 2 packs for a late breakfast which is normally a porridge and a bar accompanied with a large coffee. Then I have a soup or another porridge for late lunch (usually around 3-4) and a vanilla shake for dinner when I get home from work which is usually at around 9.

    Ah well I'm very stuck in my ways on things like this. I have a chocolate shake for breakfast more or less as soon as I get up so like... 07:45ish? Then chicken soup for lunch at 12:30, then a bar when I get home which is usually around 17:30, and then another soup before bed so probably around 22:30 or a bit later (sometimes I forget about this one til late). Don't think I'd cope too well having nothing during the day.

    I'm not really a morning person, not a fan of breakfast!
    So tend to have my first pack at 12pm, then another pack at 3pm, 3rd pack at 6pm then final pack at 8/9pm. Means i'm eating something roughly every three hours so I don't tend to feel hungry :)

    I find the bars make me hungrier... maybe because they are slighly higher in carbs...

    So I only have a bar every other day...

    This was my routine:

    9am - Porridge
    2.30pm - Soup
    5pm - Bar (on train on the way home)
    8pm - Soup

    I could never make it through the whole afternoon into the evening without my 5/6pm bar - I tried to save it for an evening treat but it never happened!!!

    Hi

    Have just tried the porridge pack again, as I never liked it before but got into proper porridge during RTM. And you know what??? It wasn't too bad at all.. needed sweetner obviously but I got it to a decent consistency in the microwave and it actually felt like eating something so to speak. This might well help with my need to chew cravings currently so will def get a few more for next week. Bring on the WI!!

    I quite like the porridge... although if i make it too thick, it makes me feel a bit sick...

    This worries me though, as this is what started happening with the vanilla shake... it started to gross me out every so often... and now I can't even bare the smell of it!

    i have never tried the strawberry or the banana... as in 'real life' am not keen on the artificial versions of either... however, the packs I like are getting a bit thin on the ground now... so maybe I should try them next week!
