well if your on induction and trying to stick to your 20 carbs a day I wouldn't eat it.

basically I'd say it was 12.8 carbs, but you have to subtract the any fibre, if it mention it.

Thanks Jim,

I'm normally on CD but because of my asthma my GP has aslked me to come off it for a couple of weeks to see if it improves, I wondered if I could still have the occasional CD pack - I know some do and that they are fairly low in carbs.

How are you btw?

I'm fine, a bit low because I'm quitting smoking, but that's only to be expected isn't it love.

I think the CD packs will be fine, they are very low carb aren't they?

Hiya, just wanted to wish you luck on Atkins and tell you that you only subtract the fibre on American bought foods, it's already subtracted from British foods.:) Also CD has about 14g carbs for soup/shake and about 24g for a bar so you could still use it for meal replacement.

t's already subtracted from British foods.
Is that right Lyn?

Yes Jim, it's right.

I also made the same mistake for months! Didn't affect my weighloss mind.
