    When I first started CD I thought the shakes tasted awful. But after a few days I got used to them never really liked them but could tolerate them. So don't worry give it a go and be postive. If you go into the diet thinking you are not going to like them then you won't succeed and we want you to.

    Some say drinking them through a straw helps only you will find what suits you

    Good luck and enjoy your birthday first

    you get used to them-honest! Put it in the blender with ur 8floz of water, a sweetner, half tsp of instant coffee if you want and lots of ice! Is much better! Same with the vanilla. Strawberry I just blend with lots of ice thickens it up!!

    Definitely use a straw to drink them. I have had to use a straw as I couldn't get them down either at first but I now look forward to them.

    Good luck !!

    I was just going to say almost exactly that! lol

    Medicine doesn't taste nice but it's necessary sometimes.

    BUt... you really do become used to them. The first I tried the choc hot I near threw up -now I love it! Just get stuck in and know that in a week or so you'll be well used to it. :D

    GOOD LUCK!!

    Hi, I am not on Lipotrim but thought I would add my tuppence worth as your thread interested me.

    I am doing W8 (another VLCD with the option to have food or not) and the foodpacks actually taste really nice.

    Not sure if its just my tastebuds, but I love the chocolate, toffee, vanilla - all the soups and the spag bol is pretty good too.

    If you don't get on with LT, then give it a go. I think its a bit more expensive mind...though not sure (costs £49 for a weeks supply of packs - 4 per day on rapid which has only food added on week 4)

    Good luck with it - hope you do well

    You could always try my (unintentional!) approach;

    have your first 3 packs as runny, lumpy, watery, feels-like-your-are-eating-runny-eggs drinks. After that, ANY of the packs made properly will taste amazing! :D

    strawberry&chicken flavour eh?
    has someone been experimenting with combining packs?

    :D

    sorry, couldn't resist! ;)

    Drink them like a smoothie - that helped me. Plenty of ice water, pint glass & straw etc.

    The chocolate & Vanilla shakes can be used with peppermint tea (hot or cold) which might also help.

    Sweeteners are a must, especially with the Vanilla (I believe), and...

    You will get used to them - they aren't bad.

    I hate them to and have partially switched to W8 as well, the shakes on that taste amazing and you can have their spag bol which is brilliant, I can actually sit at the table and feel like I am having a meal with the family, plus they will have chicken noodles soon
