My order of tonnes of meal bars & oatmeal and porridge arrived yesterday at tea time. I've this New You Plan thing licked this time around. I've explained before all the variations of products, but I've narrowed it down to exactly what I want out of it.
I ordered five oatmeals and five apple & cinnamon porridges for the morning. These taste great. I especially like the original oatmeal, I thought it might be bland, but it's sweetened. I made it up with a little too much water, but I devised a fix for it. I microwaved for 60 seconds, stirred, another 60 seconds, but it was still watery. I tried leaving it for half an hour planning to return and blast it too again, but by that time it has thickened up itself, so 30 seconds did the job and I saved my oatmeal.
You can also use the oatmeal to make sweet nibbles by following one of slimmer Dawn' recipes and mixing in some chocolate shake powder. I made the crisps using soup powder as she suggests and it worked!
The meal replacement bars are my other items for the day. I'm allowed three of them to take me to the four New You Products a day and 100% RDA of vitamins and minerals. Please, please take note- New You recommend you only eat ONE bar a day, due to their mild laxative effect. However this doesn't seem to creat a problem for me, so I've tailored the diet for taste.
I also have a huge backup of low calorie meals, the majority being my favourite, their Cottage pie. I also have the spicy noodles, carbonara and everything else each craving could be covered with.
Now this little tub is my secret weapon. I ordered the three for two, and I'm glad I did as I used a whole jar in five days! The New You Broth is a water flavouring which you can enjoy in unlimited amounts. It's really tasty and I pretty much have a mug on the go constantly through the day: it helps you feel full up and not craving savoury.
So three days in, three pounds down already, waiting for a delivery of wafer snacks to arrive today. I Will be comfortable in these jeans in a fortnight. They can be zipped up already but are too snug.
