Hi Louise, welcome to the forum!
Um, I don't know why you heard them saying you could substitute 2-3 pieces of fruit for alcohol - I've been told by my consultant (and it's in the book you get with the program), that alcohol is a big no no. We are allowed maximum of 2 pieces of fruit each day, which does me just fine. Have a look at their site http://www.tonyferguson.com
if you're interested in finding out why the program is so good - it explains everything really well.
Kate, what's your user name on the TF forum? I'll have to watch out for you.
Dolly, these lollies I mnetioned weren't DD lollies, they're a different brand I've never seen and were so yummy!
Have a great weekend everyone...and thanks again for your support!
