    no u shouldnt be having bars for the first 2 weeks, because they have higher carb content than the packs i think but im sure someone will be along to say this for sure, i was never told the reason why but im presuming thats why

    The bars are not recommended for the first two weeks so that ketosis is well-established before adding them - due to their higher carb content.

    Same with Coke Zero too - although that is because it can make you feel hungry, not due to carbs!

    Mousse is not allowed until Week 3 too because it adds another 20 calories.

    Thanks Mandy,
    My sister said the same thing but my counsellor is adamant that i should have bars.I need to have this made clear to me as i may have wasted my first week already!! I think i should be on 2 shakes,1 tetra brick and soup.Anyone else know exactly what i should have.

    You need to contact your CDC and have a chat, being a guy she should have automatically put you on 4 shakes a day.

    Mandy,
    I suppose i could.Ill be seeing her tomorrow anyway but still annoys me that ive possibly wasted my time for the first week due to bad advice.All i want is for someone to say "eat this this and this then do this " but its not happening.Im actually quite gutted now knowing ive been eating stuff i shouldnt have because of bad advice from my CDC.

    Just spoken to another CDC and she says it wont affect my weightloss but next week i should ask for 4 packets instead of a bar.Im not too keen on them anyways to be honest!!! Thanks for advice and Maggie,13.5 pounds is still great going,dont get down ok.
