    Hi Peeps,

    Last week i was put on antibiotics as had chest infect. Was taking cold & cough remidies so i was knocked out of ketosis. :cry: Is it likely to take me longer than if i ahd cheated with food. Just thinking of the high sugars in the antibiotics and remedies i have taken. Not shifted a pound all week and im depressed!!

    awe hunny, i doubt it was the antibiotics that kicked you out, probably the remedies cus of all the sugar, your weight loss will soon dissapear, your health is so much more important, stick with it, hope you feel better soon xx

    Guess?!
    Antibiotics actually do usually cause a break in ketosis. But getting better takes precedence over CD - don't worry, you'll soon be back on track, Louise.

    If it's possible, avoid the proprietary cough & cold medicines, and stick to paracetamol, perhaps with a "CD Lemsip" - which is hot Sunshine Orange & paracetamol. (Just make sure you don't take more than the daily amount, of both paracetamol and water flavouring.)
