When to take your sachets

Is there a set rule for taking your sachets - should they be evenly spaced, have at least 4 hours between each one or anything like that?

I've been having my first shake in the morning at between 7.30 and 8. But I haven't managed to gear myself up to make a shake at work (which is why I want to try the soup and/or flapjack as I think these would be a lot easier - nobody would bat an eyelid if I had these at work).

I've been guzzling water all day which keeps me full and I haven't felt especially hungry until I start making my shake when I get honme from work which is about 6.30 to 7.

And then I am having my last shake between 9 and 10.

It has worked quite well as it has meant I haven't felt tempted to snack as I have been having two meals once I have got home.

Is it okay to have my sachets like this though or should there not be such a big gap between my first and second one? :confused:

Hi Julie, I'm not too sure - I think an equal amount of time between shakes would be better, but I'm really not sure.

I have mine at 11am - 4pm - 8pm - this seems to work for me - I dont feel hungry in the day, like you - but when the other half gets home around 6ish, which normaly be time for a nice meal together, thats when it gets me at the mintute. And them seeing him tuck in to a nice hot meal... :(

I'm in the same position Julie, I don't really want to broadcast to my workplace that I'm doing it but I'm going to bring in the soup, pop off and make my soup in a bowl and eat like normal-possibly my face grimincing will give it away but ah well!!

Curlylow - my biggest problem is the evening. I'd be alright on my own I think but Neil is scoffing everything at the moment, especially as there is quite a lot of food round after Christmas and New Year. I bet he thinks I'm a right moody cow (and I am snappier than normal) but I have to keep leaving the room as I almost get fixated when he is eating! :eek: He was eating Pringles earlier and it would have been so easy to 'just have one'!

Daisy - that is precisely why I want to try the soups, and try my best to like them! I just think it would be a bit more socially acceptable at work. I had soup quite a lot for lunch before Lipotrim so I don't think anyone would even notice that it isn't something so nice as M&S Leek and potato soup (mouth watering - oops!) My OH, Neil, is still the only one who knoes I am doing Lipotrim - I think once I shifted a significant bit of weight I might feel mor able to tell people but I certainly don't want it on the newsletter at work!!

I'm glad I have you guys to moan at. ;)

Love Julie xx

Anytime! The reason I don't want my work crowd to know is cos they know me as happy, funloving me you know and they'd tell me I was crazy doing it and go into negitives. Also I get on famously with my boss and we moan about our weight together but she sees Lipotrim as really bad cos her sis had a bad experiance, my job requires a lot of energu and I don't want her to feel that I'm not up to it if I'm doing this. My friends at home know, thank god cos I need somebody to know and they understand cos they've seen me upset times etc.
Sorry about the life story!!!

I didnt want my work to know I was on LT so I used the flapjacks for lunch and found them great....out of the wrapper they look pretty "normal" and can be eaten without any notice!! Worked for me 4 ish months!
Just take them when you feel the need, I just took them like normal meals. At breakfast, lunch and dinner time
