    at the risk of starting something..

    can I have the offending oxo cube! I haven't had it yet as I was unsure about it knocking me out of ketosis!

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think it would knock you out....in cd they used to say no due to the salt....making you retain water..leading to people getting disheartened when weighing in. If that's all you have tille you can get some marigold low salt....then if it were me i would have it and just drink a bit more water to flush the salt out :)

    Well oxo cubes are meat-based aren't they? So its just like having meat and water. Also Bovril is made from meat juices. Marmite is vegetable in origin.

    Do they give their nutritional listing? You could check to see if they have any score for carbohydrate.

    How much does a cube weigh? Basically it seems to me that what you'd have to do is make sure the carbohydrates contained in the portion you have fit in the total allowed under ketosis rules.

    Youre looking at 2.8g carbs per cube. More than I personally would consider but thats just me.
