both of my favourite things. Right here. In this post. :cry:I promise post CD I will not eat bad foods if I can have seafood and beansprouts again.

Foosey depends on what you read, but most UK sites give you an average cab count of 3-4g carbs per 100g.

see Food Focus - Permanent Weight Loss for the NV's quoted. You might have to register but it is free

Be careful with chinese beansprouts - they may well add sugar, oyster sauce and cornflour to them. Ask, my chinese do them this way and thats what they consider "dry" without gravy. Obviously will vary place to place mind.

It amazed me the sugar that goes in everything, even noodles. Its why when people on WW say 4.5 points for a mushroom chow mein, its really not, it actually rather more calorific than the points they think it is.

Hi Foosey,

Had my 810 week a couple of weeks ago (a bit early) and had a chinese that week. I had beansprouts, sweet/sour tofu and schezuan(sp!) veg ( I am vegetarian). I spoke to the lady at the chinese and asked her to leave out the MSG from all the dishes. MSG is very high in carbs and seems to be in most chinese foods. I was amazed how much nicer and fresher everything tasted. The sweet/sour sauce was far less thick and really yum. It did not knock me out of ketosis, but it does take quite a lot to knock me out though.
Have a lovely meal out.

Interesting. I had always thought MSG was a salt/flavouring and had no nutritional content. other than the sodium. Can you show me the info on how its carby, as I had always assumed it was just the health scare aspect people always asked for it to be ommited for? Certainly the place I worked in only used a tip of a spoon to flavour rouhghly equivalent to the amount of salt put in.

Its usually cornflour used to thicken Sweet and Sour sauce, and sugar to create a thick sugar (hence the "sweet" component to sweet and sour)

Lexie dog,

Just following what my CDC said as I told her I was having my week off, and said I would have the chinese.
Not claiming to be a nutritionist, just following her advice and passing on what she said about staying away from MSG in her Carb Counter book. My chinese was tasty and the sweet and sour was far less gloopy and it was yum, that is all that matters to me!

You obviously know your stuff though!

Oh it wasn't a critism at all! I've genuinely never heard of it as a carb source so am curious as to how its been become to be known as a sugar as its a salt/amino acid compund. From working in a chinese the most common request for MSG to be left out is due to the whole "makes you blind thing" (more of which can be found here) but its a very small amount used in the dishes and people will commonly eat supermarket products laden with MSG under a different name, I mean its in almost everything.

Glad you enjoyed your meal though! And again no critism meant.
