    Okay, I've been doing a bit of reading about ketosis, low carbs, etc.....

    It seems to be the thought that to be in ketosis, the carbs should be around 30-40 per day.
    However, on this diet, I am consuming 65 per day.

    So, I am wondering, will I lose weight because I am consuming a very low 650 cals pd, or because I will go in to ketosis, even though the general thought is to get in to, and remain in ketosis, carbs should be around 25 LESS per day than I am consuming!

    This is all very confusing!!

    Help, lol!!

    Hiya Nat!
    Delighted to see you're doing so well!!! Can't wait to hear about your first weigh in!!!

    Sorry Nat but the waist measurement IS along the bellybutton. It's the standard. I know it makes no sense - as what we know commonly as our waist is above that!!!! It's a common mistake. I only learnt the difference when I was doing body therapies. Calculating Your Waist Circumference

    Thank you, and looking forward to seeing your results too, exciting isn't it!

    Oh blooming eck! I've measured wrong then! I'd better get the tape out and re-measure. I always presumed it was around the natural waistline, who changed the rules, lol!! xxx

    My thoughts exactly!

    So, I worked out, if I have three meal packs, and one v.low carb, high protein meal with green veggies, I will be having around 45 net carbs per day, as opposed to the 65 I am currently having on the full 4 pack pd meal replacement plan!

    No wonder I've got headache!! I've read so much I've confused myself (tho to be honest, that isn't hard to do, ha!).

    Hope you find something to clear this up, because I don't know what to do for the best!!

    Different people are more sensitive to carbs than others. If you stick to the plan-either 4 packs, or 3 and a meal then you will be in ketosis. It's normally the 80g mark that it affects most people. S&S wouldn't sell/market themselves as a ketogenic diet if the packs wouldn't enable you to be in ketosis. Try not to over complicate it and confuse yourself-if you are worried about any of it-speak to Rob and good luck x

    Re: I've started, and I WILL finish fabulously (that's the plan anyway) :)

    Where did you read that's how many carbs you should have to begin ketosis? It's a load of rubbish lol This diet is both low calorie AND ketosis based. Ask on the forum, you won't find a single person who sticks to plan who isn't in ketosis. Guaranteed. You're not having 65g carbs a day, not if you stick to plan. Most packs are 10-15g carbs, though spaghetti is high. I generally average 45-55g.

    Don't worry, it's working isn't it?

    Thank you!
    I just read on quite a few different dieting sites re carbs needing to be around 40g. Thanks for clearing that up. I don't think I'll be looking in to ketosis again online, and just carry on, because there's a heck of a lot of confusing info out there!
    Thanks again xxx

    I was just using my own experience and the experience of friends on here who've also followed s&s I don't personally think what I said was a load of rubbish! But I'll delete it if that's the case

    On quite a few VLCD sites, can't remember them all, one was the HCG forum, there were others that were questions answered through Yahoo, etc.
    Not taking any notice now I've seen Welshtigger's reply, and yours

    When I put my foods in to the S&S's meal planner, on both days, it says my carbs have been around 65g. Wonder why! Oh well, if it doesn't matter, I'm not going to fret about it!

    Yes, it's working - couldn't help myself, got on scales this morning and another 1.5lbs gone, so 3lbs in 48 hours - I am more than happy with that!

    Thanks for the info!

    How're you going?

    I didn't say it was a load of rubbish! I would never say that, especially as I don't really know what I'm talking about!!
    Please don't delete your comments, I value them, and I don't ever think what you tell me is rubbish!
