Hi guys. I am going on hols end of next week and thought I would try to count carbs and eat an atkinst style diet, as for me SS is not sustainable on holiday. I figured that if I looked up the Atkins diet and counted my carbs I would minimise and hopefully negate any weight gain. My idea was to have my two shakes in morning and lunch and then to have an Atkins evening meal (which seems quite unrestricted as to amounts as long as you eat protein and reduced amount of certain vegetables) I figured that if my carb intake did not add up to more than the atkins levels, I would still stay in ketosis but be able to have the freedom to eat with friends etc. On looking at the Atkins diet is says no more than 20g carb per day on induction and 30g per day after that. Well, from the nutritional information of a CD shake, each shake is 14.1g of carb. Therefore if I ate two shakes a day I would be able to eat nothing else. From this, it made me wonder,how we can eat three or four shakes a day and still stay in ketosis, as 4 shakes a day is 56.5g carb per day - way over the levels that Atkins says for sustaining ketosis. Help, I am sooo confused.
