Bars or extra pack

#4
Ummmmm i would guess 2 bars and 2 packs. Some bars have less carbs than others (like the peanut and cranberry) so i guess two of those might not make much difference. Strictly speaking though there is a reason why you should have 3 x packs and 1 x bar. Although not exactly sure what it is!

HI

Sorry to be negative BT if you are following the program correctly you should not be getting ANY EXTREMELY hungry days, as you are in ketosis! Well done on the water thats great at 6 litres. I would stick to 4 packs. Or 1 bar and 3 packs OR IF you have to have something extra 4 packs and 1 bar. If you are getting hungry try splitting the packs - so in theory you could have 6 mini meals and 1 bar a day.

Hope this helps

3 packs of 137 cals + 1 bar at 175 cals = 586 calories
2 packs of 137 + 2 bars at 175 cals = 624 calories

So better for you to stick to 3 packs plus one bar otherwise weight loss will be lower as you would be taking in more calories by having 2 of each. Carb content of bars is also presumable higher so you'd get knocked out of ketosis quicker by having 2 bars.

If someone is going to have more than they should really then wouldn't it be better to have 5 packs rather than 4 packs plus a bar?

The problem is the extra pack may very well knock you out of ketosis and hence you will be more hungry and the vicious circle begins...

If you test for ketosis using the ketostix and you are in then it is most likely psychological hunger as opposed to physical hunger and the extra pack won't help with that.

If you feel you need the extra intake then you are better moving to Cambridge 790 as a recognised programme as then you don't get the overage of nutrients and are on a ketotic diet again.

Hehe - the confusion has made me chuckle. :)

If you do decide to have two packs and two bars, stick with the peanut and/or cranberry, as they contain a similar amount of carbs to the sachets, so shouldn't take you out of ketosis. As has been said though, the bars contain more calories. Bear in mind that the peanut contains 40 more cals than the sachets, whereas the cranberry contains only 20 more cals than the sachets.
