S&S without ketosis..
Just curious if there's anyone out there whose followed the S&S plan without worrying too much about ketosis?
As in, have you been drinking things like squash which is not allowed? and if so, then how have your losses been?
It's not the food part of this diet I'm concerned about, it's more so not being able to drink squash or a diet red bull etc..
I'm not a huge fan of plain water, and I don't like the slim and save water flavourings which I've also tried.. I just feel that if I could drink sugar free squash then it'd be the one thing that'd keep me on track! But apparently it's disallowed...
And if the reason for no squash allowed is that it contains carbs and sugars.. then I know some brands are very low in both, like under a gram per 100ml.. so couldn't I just track my squash intake as well as my packs to ensure I keep below the carb allowance?
It's really up to you. Some people are more carb intolerant than others a tiny drop of squash might not affect you. The only real way you'll know is if you try. You'll get pretty much the same losses but you'll probably be very hungry
Thanks for your reply. I've tried slim and save & Cambridge before and found I couldn't stick to either for more than a few days because I don't like plain water.. but even something as silly as some squash would help me keep on track.

I drank all sugar free drinks including no added sugar squash, diet coke, diet red bull, 7-up free, fanta zero... Anything. I lost about 4 stone in 4 months and remained in ketosis. Everybody is different.
I personally don't worry about citric acid and my losses have always been fine. That said though, I know I'm not sensitive to it or having a slightly higher amount of carbs, some people are. If you're kicked out of ketosis it won't affect your losses like starlight said, you'll just stay hungry.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
Lost just under 3 stone on various diets in 2011-2012.
Restarting Slim and Save Jan 2013 to lose the rest!
