    The only ones I've seen in Tesco have many more carbs. Which one was it exactly? Do you know?

    Have had a look at the Tesco website and their shakes are made by EAS and are over £1.50 each

    I tried those once and OMG, I thought they were disgusting and I'm not at all fussy.

    Too many carbs anyway:p

    You'd never get into ketosis properly with that many carbs.

    And presumably, like slimfast, you'd still have to have an evening meal. So unless you were planning on having a can of beans for tea, it could still work out as expensive as doing CD.

    Personally, I can't believe how much money we're saving while I'm doing CD, LOL! Makes me realise just how much crap I was eating :D

    Hiya, why not just go back onto CD as it is proven, you get the back up and you know you will lose weight on it? Good luck with whatever you decide x

    Tesco do two types of ready made shakes. One is called Lighter Choices and is basically slimfast. The other is called Carb Control comes in chocolate and strawberry and costs 99p for a 330ml carton.
    Its not as nice or creamy as a CD tetra but does contain more volume, 330ml as opposed to 200ml.

    The nutritional values are:

    100ml 330ml
    Cals 55 170
    Carbs 0.5g 1.8g
    Protein 5.7g 18.7g
    Fat 2.9g 9.7g
    Fibre 1.4g 4.6g

    Tesco market this product as a snack or treat for people counting their carb intake not as a meal replacement. However each 330ml serving claims to provide around a third of your RDA vitamin and minerals.
