    Hi,

    Does anyone actually know how many Carbohydrates are in your 3 shakes a day?

    I do know CD is a VLCD but i would also like to know how many Carbs are in them.
    I could ask my counsellor but i've only met her once and dont want to barge her with too many questions on my first week.

    Thanks

    Thanks zreena,

    42g is a little high, when i did Atkins i kept to under 20g per day, i could've maintained on Atkins at 42g but not lost, but then again this is also a low calorie diet so mabye it evens itself out.

    Hi there - the reason why CD contains carbs is so that you enter a MILD state of ketosis, not a dangerous one. That way your body burns off the fat safely and efficiently without damaging your health.
    Hope that helps
    love
