I think that part of the principle of LL & CD is to limit your food choices so that you can have a break from the constant chatterbox of 'I could have this and this with a bit of this or that'.

The spices you mention are very unlikely to take anyone out of ketosis. I used to do Atkins and the induction period is the strict two week start where a lot is limited. Even then you can have spices which do not contain added sugar ( as a lot of the mixes do).

In fact some cinnamon is meant to help with sugar cravings and dried ginger boost metabolism.

I test with ketostix so I'd know if I went out of ketosis.

Soraya, thanks for your advice ...

I too wondered how harmful to ketosis these spices would be, but I do not want to sabotage my progress so far.

Nonetheless, if I should decide to change my mind, I will take the consequences. I'm only doing LL 'till February, just 10 weeks more.
