Blo**y he**, i just did'nt think:mad::(

I needed a painkiller, non in the house, unable to go to the shop. So I took 20ml of the kids liquid medicine. Then after taking it I decided to check it was sugar free ( I know I know, should have checked beforehand:mad:) but you guessed it, it was NOT sf:(

I know this will knock me out of keto and I have my 2nd weigh in tomorrow too.:(

How quickly would I gain weight from this mistake? I know 1 molecule of glycogen = 3 molecules of water. Do you think it will be a day or more before the scales tell me anything?

How long will it take me to get back into keto because I'm certain I'll be out big time:(

Hey there,

sorry i didnt want to read and run but i dont know the answer to your question.

Have you tested yourself with ketostix??Maybe your ok,ive read on here before that it takes 60grams of carbs to knock yourself out of ketosis so maybe your ok.

Someone will be along shortly with a definite answer.

thanks hun. x


Gone fishing
You'll be fine. 20ml of the children's medicine isn't going to do any damage.

Where it is a concern is when people assume they are out of ketosis, so make the most of it by gorging everything whilst they believe they can on the hopes that they'll start again tomorrow.

Remember that fat loss isn't down to ketosis, just calories.
