What times do you have your shakes? I've not had my first one yet, but I am drinking water. I'll probably have my first one in the next hour or so, then one about 6 ish, then one about 10 ish, so I'm not going to bed hungry.
Do you find it ok to go that long til 6 without one? I am trying to stick to times I would normally be having meals, 8.30ish, 1ish and 6ish, and guzzling down the water in between...on the subject of water how many pints do you have a day? I am having between 6-8, is that ok?? I think that works out around 4 litres??
I get 4 shakes a day (woo!) so on a weekday I have one when I'm getting ready for work, around 7.30ish, one at 11.30-12ish, one around 3-3.30 and the last around 6.30-7pm, after I've been on the cross trainer. before I was on CD I'd managed to train myself to not eat after 7.30pm, and that helped me shift half a stone in january, and curb my snacking, and I want that to carry on after CD, so after that last one it's water all the way..
weekends the only difference is I have the morning one a bit later cos I get up and use the cross trainer first thing instead of in the evening... and I'd probably be a bit sick after a milkshake!! hehe. I try and stick to the other times though, it's all about routine for me..
I split my first shake into 2 and that lasts me til about 6pm, I have 2 x vanilla shakes hot with coffee so they're like latte's....
I just drink water before, during and after. I have soup about 6pm, with bouillion and extra water so its like 500ml bowlful and then a bar anytime after 8pm with pint of black T - and I do the same thing every bloody day without fail!!!!!!!!!!
I have found that since embarking on this whole change of life thingy that I have to have routing in my life, certainly around my eating habits as it gives me so much more control?????
i really couldn't cope on 3 i can just about survive 4!! lol I have one about 9 after a workout, on about 12, one around 3 and one about 6 and get an early night. i going to try spliiting them this week and have one every hour and a half.
I'm on SS+ (4 shakes + milk) and split all my packs. have them at 9, 11, 1, 3 then have a bar and my final whole pack in the evening. my little routine keeps my brain feeling full and it's only ever 2 hours before mny next 'meal'!!!
Plus I can't stand my shakes too strong, make each half pack up to 400ml
