    The great CD, Again!
    Hi,

    Im running out of cd shakes, and money so I need to try something else.

    Im currently on xenical (so almost zero fat) and plan to follow a very low carb diet too. I want to stay in keto, but how many carbs per meal/day do I need do achieve this?

    Thanks

    On atkins induction its 20 carbs. Im not sure how easy it will be on this diet if you cant have fat (xenical) as you need fat in Atkins.

    I think the average is arond 60g per day, but of course everyone is different and some people can take a lot more. I have no idea what my limit is

    well that must vary between people really, I'm on less than 60 carbs a day most days and I'm in maintenance. I'm certainly not in Ketosis and I'm not losing any more, though I do have to be careful or I do.

    Hi there. I wouldn't advise taking Xenical and low carbing as the higher fat on atkins will produce awful side effects. Also low carb and low fat would be impossible to stick to imo. Good luck with whatever you decide :)
