    Does anyone here just get Tetras from their CDC? And does their CDC mind them doing this? The shakes are ok, but I'm finding that they leave an after taste, where as the tetras don't.

    I get 21 chocolate tetras and 7 bars a week, I split the tetra into half and top up with hot water.

    Every morning I split a choc tetra between 3 coffee's, keeps me going until lunch.

    As long as you drink 3 Litres of water a day, as a minimum then you should be ok on all tetra's

    Do you not get bored? That's my worry, as there are only 2 tetra flavours. I like the shakes, but there's an after taste with them.

    I'm on about 4 ltrs a day don't really make an effort to have extra as I drink them all with added water, I don't really get bored of them, think I need the monotamy of it, I find it so much easier to have them then make up the shakes and soups, I have got a couple of packs as back up though just in case.
    I don't really get the after taste any more dunno if this is because I'm use to it now or because I make them with hot water if it dilutes the minerally taste a bit.

    i think after my 1st 2 weeks i will just get tetras and bars, i will be able to have the water flavours then, so i'll try and drink 3 1/2 litres min per day

    That's an interesting idea (I've been adding them to coffee but I'm drinking way too much coffee - even if it is decaf - so think I'll try it your way)

    I only had the chocolate tetra's through the whole of my diet and never got bored, I used to have them with hot water and a spoonful of coffee as a mocha and sometimes with lots of crushed ice to make a bigger drink (plus it solves having to have extra water with them:))

    Lol!!! Fishy:confused:

    Lots of people find they can leave a bit of an aftertaste, and many puts lots of crushed ice in them which seems to help.
