Think it's to do with it containing citric acid which can throw you out of ketosis. Have you tried the Cambridge water flavourings? They're expensive (about £6 for a tub) but last ages and have definitely kept me from feeling too water logged! Love putting them in sparkling water - feels very decadent! lol
Hi Broxi - the month I lost 6lbs included 2 weeks off on holiday where I wasn't sticking to plan, but wasn't going mad either. Been messing around since then, but have moved to SS+ as of a few days ago to see if that helps get my focus back. Doing not so bad so far, so hoping to see a better loss by the end of Sept.
The flavouring is expensive, I know, but it keeps me drinking, so I grin and bear it - plus it lasts quite a while (probably a couple of months as I don't have it all the time) so doesn't seem so bad for me looking at it that way.
Be interested to hear if someone suggests an alternative though!
I'm still not convinced I will control it, but I kind of think that a) I can't avoid food forever and b) I don't want to! lol The stuff I was messing around with was (mostly!) food that's allowed on SS+ or 810, but I was feeling guilty for having it which is not a good state of mind. So I thought I'd try to make it legitimate food and see if that makes it any easier to deal with. Early days, but going ok so far. I like having food and feeling 'normal' again but I definitely need to watch that I don't get complacent with it.
Good luck with it. I know my attitude is unhealthy but I know me. I think I'll need counselling or something to help me put food in its proper place in my life. I'm not hugely massive or anything but just hugely addicted to food and have been for years- since my teens.
Have you heard of JUDDD - it's eating whatever 1 day and less than 500 cals next- if I can't stick to SS this time I might try that. Anyway, nice chatting, I'm going to collect my son from his work xxx
Good luck with it all Broxi - you know where I am if you want to blether. I've gone down the counselling road in tandem with doing CD as I want to sort out my issues with food so that I don't get to the place i'm in again. Tough sometimes, but worth it so far.
