Week 1 - problems

Hi, I'm an IBS sufferer and i'm really lucky that it's improved since starting CD. Are you vomiting? Is there a chance you actually have a bug?


Trying to stay healthy!
Hi missyd27, i think i've read that some people can an effect like this and that it's possibly to do with the high levels of nutrients in each pack, i think the advice usually is to try and split the packs up and have 6 smaller soups/shakes over the day.
Hope you feel better soon!



Thanks for your replies - fortunately I haven't been vomiting. Am due a call of my CDC today so will see what she suggests.


what is in tetra cartons and bars?

Can anyone tell me what ingredients are in the tetra cartons and bars. I think i have found the route of my problems but just want to check before I make any changes.
