    Hi all, can you help me please?

    Im going to see my cdc 2moro, it'll be my 1st week weigh in.

    She's told me that shes gonna be away for a week, so 2moro i have to buy 2 weeks supply.

    As from after next week i can have bars, i was wondering which ones are the nicest? What do i buy?
    Any recommendations????

    Thanks so much Donna xxx :)

    the caramel, orange and peanut are my favs. it depends if u like crunchy bars and soft centre bars. if u like both then maybe u should get one of each flavour and try them all in a week? to be honest they r all nice.

    You cannot have the bars until Week 3, by the way!

    I love the Toffee and Caramel bars particularly!!

    I was only able to have the bars for that one week as they knocked me out of ketosis!! The higher amount of carbs was enough to mess it all up for me. I was kinda disappointed as I liked them all (except the toffee one ugh), but I'd rather go without the bars and be in ketosis than being starving all the time due to being out of ketosis!!

    Hope it works out for you.

    Choc orange is my fave by far which has a soft centre and dark choc. They dont knock me out of ketosis - it depends on the individual. We are all different and some of us can cope with more carbs than others. they are only slightly higher in carbs than the shakes so dont worry.

    It's only the soft ones that have more carbs - the peanut and cranberry are the same/less than carbs than shakes/soups.

    (Although personally don't like the cranberry :p - but love the peanut, toffee, orange and caramel :D).

    The Cranberry is gorgeous as is the Chocolate Orange.

    I leave one in the freezer for the day and then have it last thing with a big mug of coffee - usually watching CSI or something like that. Bliss!

    Great loss well done, taken me 3 weeks to do that!
    I love the soft chewy bars, will be worth the wait. Found the crunch ones too hard for me. Suppose it just depends on what you like to eat usually. I like to chew food but noisy food always puts me off, especially eaten by other people.
