    Hi,

    You must not add salt or tabasco to the soups. Just pepper or 1g of curry powder, garlic is not allowed. Sorry.

    I thought tabasco was ok?

    Tabasco has never been allowed on CD. It used to be on LL then they stopped it as there are things in there that can affect ketosis.

    Unless the rules on this have been relaxed I still will say no to tabasco.

    Tabasco is now a no on LL.

    I used to use it all the time on LL but always wondered as it is obviously full of salt whether it was a good idea.

    Hi Gen!
    Yes I did get through yesterday & even though today is only day 2/3 (day 3 officially starts after 2.30pm when I had my first pack!) I feel more positive today... doubt I'm in ketosis yet but have bought the stix so will do a test as soon as I feel the 'urge' which should be soon by the amount of water I've already drunk!!

    I read through some of Moose's blog last night & it is truely inspirational, I was half tempted to use the move as an excuse & 'give up' but I am so motivated now!!!
    If I have to eat (ie invited to a restaurant) then I will have meat (no sauce) & veg or salad without any sauce, no drink & absolutely NO carbs... otherwise I don't plan to eat at all...

    How are you doing girl?

    Can you really add curry powder to the soup mix. It would make such a nice change

    Cheers

    Hi, My CDC says its ok to have the red tabasco, chilli, garlic granules, oregano, paprika and curry powder (haven't asked her about anything else.)

    I have a tomato soup every evening with either about a teaspoon of curry powder in it, or a soup with about a teaspoon of garlic granules and oregano or tabasco. Ive been in ketosis all along and lose around 3 or 4 lb a week.

    Its so confusing...now people are saying i can't have the 'seasonings'

    What to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tabasco sauce & LL

    My LL foundation book says that you can have unlimited Red Tabasco sauce. Dont know if it effects weight loss as I tried it once and wasnt keen

    Hey Mike... you have tabasco included in your recipes on your blog. Just a heads up in case this confuses people
