    Hi all

    Just a quick question about carbs????

    Being on the CD obviously cuts down on carbs to keep you in ketosis, but i've just been looking at the bars contents & noticed the carb content, it is higher than a slice of bread!

    So, my thinking if i had something with carbs in with the same amount or less would it kick me out of ketosis??

    Or am i being completly blond & thats not how it works :confused:

    Can you tell i'm sat thinking about food ;)

    Hi Lorraine, if you ate something with the same/similar net carbs ( that's carb from sugar) to the bars/packs you'd stay in ketosis, however you'd not get all the essential nutrition that the bars/packs contain.

    I couldn't manage to just have one slice of bread, the loaf would be gone before I could wink!

    Exactly and also it could trigger the want to eat other conventional food too :(
