Default Crackers - can we forego eating 'em?

Hi, I was wondering if we have to eat the allowable crackers that are part of our plans? I just don't feel that hungry (which is VERY, VERY weird). This is week one/2nd attempt for me, and I just don't feel like eating any wheat - & the meals - just protein and veg are giving me enough to eat. Last time I was on Cohens I was ravenous all the time (I lost 17kgs) and my saladas tasted like Lembas bread - irresistible. Now they taste like salty cardboard.

If I don't do the crackers, will I break it??

Sorry to be a pest, but I searched 'crackers' and 99 diaries lined up. Is there an easier way to search/sort specific topics? Please don't be annoyed, there's just so much going on at this place and I'm still trying to find my way around.

cheers!!

They like you to eat them in the first 10 days, I didn't. After that it just for if you're hungry and only up to two at a time. I only ate them occasionally. 2 pieces of fruit also optional. 😜 if you don't ask you won't know. No one minds, we've all had questions xx

My consultant told me that we can stop eating the crackers after day 10 if we want to

is this the Nabisco Premium crackers original? I would like to try other brands too if available here.. Ive been on Finn Crisp Multigrain or Ryvita Crackerbread Original.

I never skipped on my crackers, until now. I eat them all I sometimes skip on 1 fruit though.. i forget..

When I was in Canada I was having the nabisco... they definitely taste the same as the premiums but I'm not 100% positive they're the same. Can you check with your Clinic, mes?

Hi LD! this is the reply I got from my consultant:

Quote:
Saltine Crackers ? Nabisco are the most popular in the USA and the best part is that you can have two crackers for every one in your allowance.
I guess this is it..? Which I havent seen anywhere here..

I like my crackers with a slice of cucumber and tomato on them - often at lunch time with my coffee or as a pizza base.
