    I'm still confused....but thought i'd start a new post because i have a specific question

    How do we get into ketosis when there is such a high carb count in the food packs???? Like 18.4g ??? 3 servings of that a day would be far too many carbs for Atkins so why for Exante?

    I'm a little of the wagon now :( which is really depressing because if the illness i had the last few days was just "atkins flu" then it means i have to go through it all again doesn't it? :confused:

    I think it depends on the type of carbs you are eating. There are fibrous carbs that are better for you than the normal starchy ones.

    It doesn't make much sense does it? I know brocolli is a GOOD carb.

    Should i email Exante and ask them do you think?

    So long as Im in ketosis on my packs I dont even look a the maths. What ever the carb count/type is on Exante - it works :)

    i have found it nightmare though because of being ill i just couldn't face the packs, so until i get better i've been eating carb free stuff to stay in ketosis but keep my strength up but then i realised that i neednt have avoided carbs so much?! I do need to look at the maths ...
