    Hi all
    Started today- had two packs so far and lots of water. Am hungry but feel I can cope. I have some questions:
    1) A friend who is on LL told me that once she ate a meal, was totally desperate and just had to eat something. She was then sick very quickly afterwards. It didn't effect her losses and didn't seem to kick her out of ketosis- is this possible? I am worroed she will start being on a regular basis if she thinks it's ok.
    2) If CD is a VLCD- then is it possible to eat negetive calorie foods like celery?
    3) Is it ok to add salt and pepper to food packs?
    4) I know I can have black tea with sweetner- what about granular sweetner to add to the porridge to make it less nasty?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi and welcome:)
    I don;t think celery is ok but someone will be along to correct me if I;m wrong, pepper is ok but no salt - sorry
    sweetner is fine in tablet form but not granules try it with cinnamon or nutmeg its really nice and tbh the porridge is fairly sweet.
    I wouldn't try the being sick thing as I don't think it's healthy and can lead to eating disorders(thats if she was purposefully doing that)
    Good luck:D

    Exactly what i believe to be correct. No salt only pepper.
    No celery, only CD sachets. Sweetner in tablet form only.

    I'm on ss+ too and my cdc never mentioned celery but i'm having the 200mls of skimmed milk rather than food - do you think it makes a difference? I'd eat celery right now if it meant I could chew something that resembles normal food!!!

    As to sweetening the Porridge.......I dissolve a tablet sweetner in the hot water before I add the Porridge mix.

    Celery...

    thanks for your reply. So if you are SS+ are you allowed to eat celery whenever you want- or just with your 200 Kcal meal?

    I can't believe how much I an lusting after chewing something. Am considering switching to SS+ as think it might make the journey easier and make it less likely for me to give up.

    Day 5 today- feel fine- but so missing chewing!

    Thanks

    SS+ is just two tablespoons of veg from the allowed list so no you wouldn't be able to eat unlimited celery. It's hotly debated whether negative calorie foods actually exist - until it's scientifically proven by those not trying to sell a diet plan or book then I wouldn't take the risk. If you really have the urge to chew then check out the recipes sticky so you can try making some crisps or a muffin or something. As long as you don;t cook more than one pack a day (excluding porridge) you'll be fine.
