Cooking some of the packs - making, say, savoury pate from half a soup pack, and crisps to dip from the other half - can be a tasty way to stave off boredom. Likewise making a pack into a thick paste and spreading it on greaseproofed paper - a chocolate-bar shape - then freezing until solid. Can be nibbled like a choc bar! Or making a muffin, which can be a great substitute for a sweet cake.
Sheer boredom with pack flavours and textures has been the undoing of many a diet. I tried a couple of times to make crisps but couldn't quite get the hang of it lol. I should have persevered!
Actually I do see the point. In my 1st week I was getting so bored of drinking everything (other than the bar) that I longed for something I could get my teeth into, so it did serve a temporary purpose for me. Admittedly aswell I was struggling to consume it as a soup as it made me feel sick, and so by making into a poppadom it made it a little more pleasurable to consume. But I always always ate these within 10 mins. It's good to do for an occasional snack and afterall variety is the spice of life.
I disagree I must admit. Im doing this as a TFR to avoid things like crisps/cakes etc.. I want to have just the packs the way theyre meant to be had - to take away the temptation of junk food. To me, converting the packs into 'food' and damaging them in the process totally defeats the purpose of doing a shakes diet
No matter how quickly you eat them, the packs still lose nutrients etc if theyre microwaved/cooked in anyway
