    i know for the induction...you have to stick to 20g of carbs per day or less and as jim says its about been clean and green.

    just a few questions as im going to do a big shop in the morning...

    what veggies/salad especially really fall into this category?

    your allowed bacon and this question seems a bit stupid do i go for smoked/un-smoked or back?

    are we allowed sugar free jelly?

    are we allowed diet coke (i don't like any other soft drinks)?

    and the final thing this sounds really dumb are mushrooms, peppers and onions OK? they're my favourite foods....

    thanks for the info!!!

    I've figured that it is mainly dark green ones. Look for savoy cabbage, courgettes, green peppers, lettuce, celeriac, cucumber (in moderation)

    your allowed bacon and this question seems a bit stupid do i go for smoked/un-smoked or back?

    As I believe, all bacon is created equal :)

    are we allowed sugar free jelly?

    yes, but take care it doesn't stall your weightloss

    Onions are a bit of a misnomer. On induction they are best avoided, after induction, if you were to have one serving per day, quarter of your carb intake would be wasted.

    Mushrooms are ok in moderation too :)

    Hope that helps, and good luck!

    Hi there, I was going to suggest you print out the stickie and take it along as a shopping list, but you've probably already thought of that. :D
