But what harm do people think i will have done? And how can i help myself to try and resolve it if i have done alot of damage. ?????

    Danielle, I suppose the worst thing that has happened for you is that it may (depending on how much rice you had) knock you out of ketosis. I doubt it will do serious damage to your weight loss this week it just might make it harder for a few days till you get back in to ketosis.

    On atkins they say you can have 40gs of carbs without effecting ketosis so if you didnt go over that you might still be in it.

    Dont feel guilty about now, just concentrate on getting back on track

    :)

    oh no... bad girl!!!! lol

    carbs kick you out of ketosis

    when you starve your body of carbs which are the bodys preferred source of energy you begin to burn your fat stores!

    this is why CD results in fast weight loss as you are effectively living off your fat...

    be prepared for the horrible 3 days getting back into ketosis if you are unfortunate enough to have been kicked out! some people are more carb-sensitive than others so you may be lucky...

    good luck xxx

    Danielle, you're not failing, you are doing so well, it might just be triggered with the aamw, and maybe when you get back to SS next week you'll be more focused

    Best of luck....
