    Hi,

    I am moving from SS'ing to the 790 plan at the end of the month and I only really like chicken so was wondering if it's possible to have Salmon insted of Tuna, which I really cant stand! Would not mind if it had to be a smaller portion of Salmon. Can any CDC's advise please?

    Thanks:)

    As far as I know, you can have salmon once a week, hun.

    Thanks for the reply. Would that be the same portion size as Tuna do you know?:confused:

    I always work on halving the portion size for salmon and keeping to a once weekly treat as isobel says jack. Pretty sure that's the advice we got at the training day :)

    Yes - I was told that too - about half the amount of salmon that you'd have of white fish - cos it's soooo oily (but yummy!)

    Hi guys

    Would the same apply for mackerel and smoked mackerel?

    Not sure I could trust myself to have a tiny portion though!

    Thanks everyone for your help! At least having Salmon once a week will be a fab change from Chicken:)

    oooh goody, I love salmon.

    Not too concerned about the portion size because I'm really finding some of the 790 portions too big to mangage in one go (have to have half for lunch and half for tea).

    Would about 130g of salmon sound right as a 790 portion?

    Hi,

    I have clarified this with head office this afternoon.

    The amount of salmon you would be allowed would be so tiny once cooked it would not be worth having. It would probably be less than half the amount allowed for fresh tuna.

    Definitely no to the mackeral.

    Definitely no to smoked fish due to salt content so if having haddock white fish only.

    Re the egg, 1 a day at the moment but this is being checked out.

    Other options not yet in print but on the way:

    80g dried weight red lentils
    225 can chick peas in water drained
    80g dried weight chick peas
    70g dried weight Soya bean

    Our nutritionist is currently looking at other options.

    Make sure they are in water and drain. This information is hot of the press so you won't find it in any literature yet.

    Bumping a very old thread but does anyone else eat chickpeas on 810 and what kind of spices do you use?

    I'm also confused about the non/low fat salad dressings. Is there a risk anything with citric acid could kick me out of ketosis?
