    Can anyone tell me if it's ok to give blood on CD? I'm on the 810 plan and am not in ketosis. Does that make a difference?

    Thanks! Ooh, and I found out a new great thing about losing weight today, you get better coverage from umbrellas!

    Hi,

    Advice from CD:

    Q: Is it all right to continue the ‘Sole Source’
    programme if giving blood?

    A: The ‘Sole Source’ programme should not be followed for
    one week preceding blood donation and for one week
    after. In fact, a centre will refuse to take blood if
    they know the donor is on a very low calorie diet,
    because blood viscosity and volume are affected by the
    ‘Sole Source’ programme.
