Bumping this thread up. Ok after almost 10(??) 1kg of Marigold, I discovered today that there is inulin... I wonder why I didn't see this thread earlier.

Does anyone know if the Yoplait brand has inulin? I really want yogurt but I don't want to continue with Marigold if there is inulin because my weight loss seems to have slowed down! THANK GOD I did not replenish my yogurt supplies today at NTUC.

Very frustrated now and I believe my weight loss stalled mainly due to that. Having egg and veggies for Meal 1 tomorrow.

Read from the yogurt thread that Yoplait is allowed. Guess I have to buy Yoplait from tomorrow onwards if I want yogurt. I am thinking perhaps I should stop for a while.

Angry at myself for not checking!!!! This is because I have been taking Marigold since precohens days so I just continued. No wonder I felt that I gained more weight instead... angry angry angry

Hey Divine P

Are you in Singapore? I have just bought my first tub of yoplait... just wondering if we are having the same one? Mine has 2% fat, and I am used to having a zero % fat yogurt, and the plan says less than 2% (so I have been mixing 2% with the zero %, haha)... My yoplait has no inulin...

I might go check out the yogurt thread

xoxo
Missy

Hi Missy yes I am in Singapore. I will also be getting the Yoplait one most likely but only after I get over the fact that my oversight will probably cost me this week's weight loss. I will be having eggs for breakfast for the rest of the week I think!

I also plan to alternate my breakfast of egg and yogurt. The yoplait one costs much more you see and its not that widely available.

I just finished my "bought in Perth" beef fillet. I was in Cold Storage on Thursday and bought 3 small packets of lean Aussie beef for $20 (yikes). I wouldn't mind so much but when cooked at steak it tasted like shoe leather.

This morning I went to NTUC (Bishan). They had whole beef fillets at $19.95/kg. They weren't on display, but when I asked they were available. Spent $45 and now have 20+ meals.

Hi, I'm new in this forum, been on Cohen for 3 weeks now and based in Singapore.

I wonder if there has been a list/discussion on what we could have when we're unfortunately stuck in a local kopitiam, with no Subway or other suitable Cohen foods nearby.

Apologies as I do not meant to tempt anyone, just wonder other than the obvious ones to avoid, is there any local food alternatives (ie. fish-soup? grilled fish? yongtaufu? etc), as I realized I might have accidentally deviated today, as I made wrong choices (some pictures could be deceiving).. so sad now..

Any feedback will help..

Hi NP - I read on some thread/post before.. inulin has effect on some people (gets hungrier), if it doesn't affect you.. then should be okay to take. Marigold is okay for me too.. or probably it's just me who were not so in-tune with my body.. to identify hungry or plain headache..LOL

Hi Dee

When you are unfortunately stuck in 'kopitiam' - opt for the steamed chicken breast meat (about $4) to meet your protein and then ask for a LOT of cucumber or the boiled vege without the oyster sauce. You'll survive on this perfectly and there's almost always a chicken rice stall in every kopitiam?

Reckon fish soup (don't know what they put into the soup) plus the yong tau foo all retain water. I've tried ample times, and the chicken + cucumber gives you the Cohen results

Hi Everyone !

A newbie here, just wanted to ask cause my app. to see the clinic at Orchard is next week, they told me that the program fee is 1600 SGD.. Is that right?? Or have I just been quoted an ang moh price? May I ask around how much each of you have paid. It really makes no sense when the same prg in Australia is 700 the SGD/AUD is not double?

Many Thanks for your kind assistance

Hello Duci, that's the same price I paid in Mar 2011 though it was much cheaper years ago. You could opt for installment through various credit-cards

Last heard, the program now last for 6 months only, as compared to previously 12 months (like mine is 12mons). Mainly because dieters tends to drag-on the progress and not commiting 100% thinking there is always TIME... So if you still not reaching the goal by 6 months, you'll be required to pay for another 3 months extension (think this is similar with AU/US)

Thanks Flamie, really good to hear back from fellow SG Cohenites... no wonder I gained back after a YongTauFu last month! For this or Fish Soup - I reckon is the dried prawn (haebi) or anchovies type of ingredient in the soup that causes water retention..

Hi Duci! Paid the same price but my contract is a little different. I remember my consultant Innira asked me what a reasonable target date would be when I first went in. I didnt know how fast Cohen would work so I said 'by my 25th bday' which was about 19 months from that time. So that's what they gave me - 19 months to finish without having to pay again. I double-checked with her and she confirmed that as long as I finish within that time, I'll still get my refeed
