    Just looked on the back of the packet and it is quite similar to the back of my exante pack. Just wondering why we don't have these on the exante TS?

    Because they dont have the nutrients and vitamins the packs do and theyre not suitable as a meal replacement...

    But would it be ok to have one when you are peckish along with the 3 packs on TS?

    Personally I wouldnt... the ingredients arent going to be VLCD friendly and you would very possibly knock yourself out of ketosis. If you feel the need for something extra, have an extra pack or something high protein

    I thought it may knock me out of ketosis too but I have gone 1 by 1 on every ingredient and they are a almost exactly the same as my milkshake packet so on that evidence i would of thought it can't knock you out of ketosis?

    It could be the 'almost' thing that knocks you out though. There will be things in it that ARENT in the shakes/soups.

    Ultimately its up to you but I just dont think its worth risking ketosis for something like a cup a soup when you could have something totally safe :)

    The ingredients for mushroom cup a soup are:

    ,Water ,Glucose Syrup ,Mushroom (2%) ,Vegetable Oil ,Maize Starch ,Croutons (1%) (Wheat Flour, Vegetable Oil, Salt, Yeast, Rosemary Extract) ,Potato Starch ,Mushroom Extract ,Salt ,Onion ,Flavour Enhancers (Monosodium Glutamate, Disodium 5'-Ribonucleotides) ,Milk Proteins ,Yeast Extract (contains Barley) ,Parsely ,Flavoring ,Emulsifier (Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids) ,Acidity Regulator (Dipotassium Phosphate) ,Potassium Chloride ,Natural Flavourings (contains Celery)

    Theres SO much of that thats just not allowed on a VLCD. I know thats probably not the one youre looking at having but the ingredients are going to be very similar. I wouldnt touch it with a barge pole lol

    The bold are definate carbs...
    Not even sure about MSG or any of the others.
    I wouldn't have them.
    It takes me a good 6 days to get into ketosis, so, I wouldn't risk it
