    I've been and seen the pharmacist.

    I have bought chicken and vanilla (2 chicken : 1 vanilla).

    I'm sat here reading all of your posts to get myself ready for what is to come!

    I'm a little bit scared of the speed of loss I can expect, that first 5lbs took me a whole month!

    But I will get there, won't I?


    So far I have figured out:
    • That I should not do any exercise in week 1.
    • That I should make sure to have lots of drinks, red tea and water for me!
    • That it is possible to play with the thickness of the shakes, not sure how but I'll keep on reading.
    • If I want the chicken hot I should shake it first then heat it!
    • I'm guessing the shakes taste less than gourmet!
    And I hope I get this nailed. I can and I will succeed.

    :)

    Good luck, You did exactly the same as me, I read everything I could and though I had the right idea of everything.
    To be honest though, I went into this diet expecting to struggle like crazy, but so far (week 5) I have had no urge to cheat or even to eat anything.
    I guess what I am trying to say is, Don't try and live others expirence, it is different for everyone.

    Another thing, Chocolate shakes with Coffee! It is the only thing I have had the entire time. Consider that as an option :)

    I really hope you have a great success, and Good luck!

    Thanks Kathryn, that makes me feel better.

    I have no idea why I didn't think of chocolate shakes with coffee! Chocamocha is my winter warmer drink!

    I was planning to add coffee to the vanilla if necessary.

    tbh it is the chicken that is worrying me! Still I will only have to hold my nose for a a week :D

    You are welcome :)

    Seriously, tasty stuff! I would be happy to drink it even if I wasn't on Lipotrim (Granted, given the option it wouldnt be all I got to have a day!)

    Someone also said once that with the vanilla.. add a little bit into your tea/coffee instead of milk, but I am not sure if that is strictly allowed.

    I had a whiff of the soup once, seriously awful stuff! :p
    It is different for everyone though, I wonder how your pharmasist would take it if you took them back, if they were as bad as I remember them? I am too much of a big baby to try anything else, Plus the way I look at it, I will never, ever fancy chocolate again after this long on just the shakes! lol

    She suggested I took them back if I loathed them!

    I might take her up on it!

    Best of luck Ican! I started today so I'll always be a day ahead of you...:p

    I love the soup, although I did the first couple of weeks on the shakes only, so maybe was desperate for anything that resembled food by then. Just don't expect haute cuisine. ;)

    Well the vanilla went down OK! It isn't foul!

    I'm sort of looking forward to the chicken!

    Waterworks, as we are so close in starting date and weight, I'll [STRIKE]race [/STRIKE] buddy you if you want :D

    Hey

    i'm glad to her that you are doing ok.

    I'm on day 3 now. The chicken was awful on the first night. I actually gagged after every mouthful took nearly an hour to have it, but last night the chicken wasnt as bad. I guess I was more used to it or at least more wiling to get over it. haha

    I'm so jealous of women being able to have 3 shakes. Us fellas only get 2. It's so hard having about 12 hours between meals. :(

    i think i would prefere 2 shakes a day as i find it hard to get the 3 shakes in to me.
    i think that as it goes on you may get to like the chicken as its some what closer to food lol.
    how are you feeling today decky x x x

    Oh Lor!

    The chicken is a bit odd isn't it?

    Cheap chinese, weird cup-o-soup no croutons, odd!

    Second mouthful was much the same.

    It'll have to cool a little before I drink the rest!

    But I don't think it will be too bad. Maybe some leaf spices to jazz it up a little!

    Does this work cos you feel all virtuous when you finally manage to down the last mouthful??

    3 sips in and I feel vaguely saintly!

    And now it is all gone! With another for later. Yummy! I'll have to have a think about re-flavouring it a little!

    Next week I'll swap some for chocolate!!

    Last time round I loved the soup to start with, then suddenly went off it and couldn't stomach it at ALL! This time I've just got chocolate and vanilla to start with, and I ADORE the vanilla. I could cheerfully live on them (lucky, really.... ;) ) and the chocolate cold is pretty yummy, but I'm not loving them hot (whereas last time I only really liked them hot).

    Happy to buddy you Ican. Just as long as you can stick me crying like a baby when you whup my ass. (Are you allowed to say ass on minimins?) :p Ooh, and your description of the soup is spot on - knew it reminded me of something...

    Decky, some of the lads here seem to split their shakes into four little ones - not sure if that magically knocks you out of ketosis or anything (a lot of 'snake oil' talk in this diet I find), but it might be good, even for the first few days until you totally forget about food?
