tale of a 2 bar nightmare!!

just thought for the fun of it i would copy and paste an old post i did a few years ago reminding people of why cambridge recommend a maximum of one bar per day.
went down well last time around so hope u all enjoy my little true story. :D

Once upon a time there was a rather large woman who made a even larger mistake.
she woke feeling well and full of life but she had a very busy day ahead of her.
Before she even realised, she was out of the house and busy running here and there. She realised at about 3pm that she was really hungry and suddenly realised in horror that she hadnt had her first shake of the day.
But, on she went with her busy day, ignoring the hunger pangs as she passed mcdonalds and kfc and blanking out the smell of the local chinese chippy as it attacked her nostrils on her way home at 4.45pm.
By the time she got in it was almost 5pm and she as good as broke her neck as she dived over the teenagers sprawled all over her living room in her haste to get to the kitchen to grab a shake.
In pure laziness she ended up opting for a CD toffee bar which she devoured quickly and felt much better (and secretly quite proud of herself).
at about 9pm she had her second shake which consisted of a chocolate mousse trifle (yummy) but as bedtime approached she wondered how on earth she was going to manage another shake before bed.
she was already a little concerned as she had only managed to drink 2 litres water as opposed to her usually 4-6 litres.
Finally she decided to risk having another bar (of the orange variety). she knew the bars could knock ketosis but she wasnt in ketosis anyway due to being really sick and on antibiotics:sigh:, so she risked it.
within the hour she was on the move again, only this trip wasnt pleasant , she spent the next 25 minutes running back and forth to the toilet where she discovered that 2 CD bars in one day is a very severe remedy for constipation (worth remembering, she thought)
Eventually she got to bed and vowed never to try and cram 3 shakes into a 5 hour period again and definately never to risk 2 bars again (unless the constipation monster has her captive) :)

LOL -- I learned that the bars (even one) gave me such bad gas pains -- that they are so not worth it.
