    In one of the recipes in the book, it says rice noodles were allowed in one of the recipes?

    Also, were allowed 225g or chickpeas, which according to sainsburys is 245 calories plus it has a lot of carbs in anyways?

    Plus were allowed many more things?

    My CDC said that recipe was put in the wrong place so ignore it. Not sure about the chick peas x

    I will not give up this time

    Where do you get the recipe books from? Your CDC?

    No - the noodles are allowed - one of the FAQ chapters explains that some of the recipes have different foods that are off the list because they have been calcuated professionally but nutritionists so as long as you follow the instructions exactly that recipe works at that level.

    Most of the protein portions are between 200-300 cals so - yes that's correct. And yes they have carbs, but they need to give options for veggies - use with caution when you start having them - don't cook extra or have them two days in a row until you know you can handle the carbs. But they are low GL so you should be fine - especially if you mix them with 0% greek yoghurt.

    Oh - yeah - the book says you're 'allowed' basalmic vinegar and a squirt of lemon juice - but I find that adding new flavours when you're on the edge of ketosis can create false hunger. I didn;t add flavourings until I'd done two full weeks of 810 (one was my Week 13 and the other Week 21 - so I had the hang of eating clean, plain food and just enjoying that)
