    Could some1 tell me how many carbs are in the cd porridge is it the same as the shakes or higher if its higher is it as high as the bars??

    The bars dont suit me at all and do slow my losses down so was just wondering if i should even bother getting the porridge??

    Its a shame no one has repiled as I am seeing my CDC tomorrow and was going to get some porridge but am worried that it may affect my weight loss!
    This diet can be hard enough on it's own without being sabotaged by porridge!!!!!!!!

    who told you they have no carbs?

    yes the shakes contain carbs, carefully balanced so that your overall carbs per day is less than your body requires to help you into ketosis

    While researching different diets I came across, most of the CD users seem to be under the impression that there are NO carbs in CD.
    It's probably only my perception but fact that none of the single sachet has protein v carbs data doesn't help either :-(

    Peanut, like cranberry, also has similar carbs to the shakes :)

    I didn't realise that people thought it was carb free., but I know many people think that veg is carbless...which of course it isn't.
    As the link above but your consultant should supply either in a box or with a leaflet that has all the nutritional info. It's required and all that.

    I have it every morning too - tbf I don't really think that the amounts in 3 portions of CD is anything to really be worrying about. After all, any combination of 3 wether it porridge bar & soup or all shakes, still come in @ under 500cals.
