    Im really struggling to consume 3 packs a day, now i know i have to have all 3 a day so im not going to be skipping any but i am finding it really hard to fit them in. :sigh:

    Im at home most of the time with the kids so i always have the time to make the shakes up so thats not the problem, i have never been able to stomach breakfast :jelous: so i find that i usually have my first shake or bar after lunch (prob around half 1) after that i am stuffed til 7/8pm although i do force a shake down at this point but that still leaves one! I am sipping water throughout the day so i am getting the 2l of water in no problem.

    Any tips??

    I have my first shake about 11, my bar at about 4/5 and then I have a "coffee" in the late evening. I put sine coffee on with a vanilla smoothie x

    If you have a vanilla one hot with coffee it's like a latte or a choc one hot it's like a hot choc. Surely you could have one in the morning if you look on them like that and don't think of them as a meal. I can't face breakfast but drinking a hot shake feels nothing like breakfast. If you have a morning cuppa replace it with a shake

    Thanks for the replies, i literally dont have breakfast or drinks in the morning it makes me feel bloated and nauseous. I have my first drink about 10-11ish but i suppose i could have a hot shake instead of a cuppa at that time :) thanks xx

    Or you could have a bar at some point rather than all the liquid of a shake. You can chop one up into bits and graze that way.
