    I got a message to collect my order too but one item has been cancelled. Wonder if that will invalidate the offer

    I had one of these knotty problems when TCB had the bonus offer on the fidget spinners. When I went to pick up my order in June mine was broken so I asked for a replacement.
    Instead of just giving me a straight swap the store insisted on doing a refund and then a store resale.
    I was convinced I'd lost my £3 cashback but I emailed TCB anyway and they asked for a copy of my store receipt. They allowed it anyway.
    This reminds me I don't think this one has paid out yet ...

    The £720 is what the tax man adds....when you deposit £2880, making it £3600.

    I wonder if I've paid fees somewhere along the line. I tried to look at my account this morning but its only showing the current tax year and not last year or the various transactions ...

    Think will leave the matalans one for now as the money was taken out of pay pal and then when they cancelled one of the items that bit was put back in paypal, so maybe it will just be picked up that I paid £16 and not £10

    Another diet tried out consisted of bacon and eggs for breakfast, plus an orange. The rest of the day they could only drink liquid eggnog. 1 egg per pint of whipping cream and flavoured with vanilla/ nutmeg. usually a quarter of the mixture would be more than enough for the rest of the day. In that study no one ever consumed more than 2/3 res of the liquid and they lost weight.

    Most just push past that and come out the other side feeling better. It's the transition the body makes from going from fuelled by carbs to the much nicer fuel of fat where there is no spikes in blood sugar.

    Yes that has less carbs but they both have fats as there main fuel source. The 50g of carbs in the diet above allows for lots of fibrous veggies which help with vitamins and minerals. 1300cals is much easier to stick to, therefore more successful.

    Most people will be able to get into ketosis with 50g of carbs but some won't.
