When you start 790 is it ok to not have as many drinks and soups?

I know you are meant to keep on having all you packets and a meal but its too much for me!

I'm 6ft so I am on 4 packs a day, I am now on day 9 and started last night on 790.

I just can't eat 4 sachets and a meal, so i'm having one drink for brekkie, 1 drink for lunch and the meal in the evening...

Is that bad? Will it affect my steps (back to "recovery") once i shed the weight i want to?

On 790 everyone must have THREE packs per day. Even men and women 5'8" and over.

So relax you are doing the right thing.

Do you have a copy of the yellow weight care booklet?

Hi Maia,

On the 790 programme you only need to have 3 packs a day with the meal. If you have 4 packs you would be on approximatly 928 calories.

You must have all 3 packs and the meal or you day will not be nutritionally complete.

I always say to people finding it difficult to fit all there packs in to have them an hour or two earlier then they usually would, if that helps.

I know from personal experience on SS and having my first shake at 10 or 11am. That is to late when I started 790cals and started having them at 8am or 9am instead.

Yellow care booklet?

I must admit I don't know much about the yellow care book or any book for that matter! My CDS did not explain in huge detail...

I agree about the timing, thanks for that advice, i do tend to have my morning shake around 9/9.30 and then my lunch soup, but then i come home and have my dinner and i fall asleep after that!

I shall try harder!


Hi Linda

I have just emailed you. No i have no booklets whatsoever. When my CDC came the other week I think she was out of the basic booklets so she explained everything to me briefly and said she would tryand get me a SS bboklet for next time! one of my best friend has been doing CD for the last 3 weeks and she has gone through SS and is now on 790, so her explanations and support have been great!

good idea

that sounds like a good idea actually, but don't you feel really full after a plate of food a few hours before? I'm constantly full, mosty of water!
