    Hi Emma

    Unfortunately it is really easy to get back out of ketosis once in it. From what I gather on this forum, carbs bring you out of it immediately. My CDC mentioned things like lemon.

    Someone will come along soon and fill you in properly I'm sure but for now all I can say is really keep at it and try your hardest not to let yourself escape ketosis until goal if you can help it. Last week my cough got really bad, so I started taking beechams lemon and honey, not thinking about it, it took me out of ketosis then I felt quite rough getting back into it again at the end of the week. Strange considering I wasn't too bad at all when I first went into ketosis.

    You're doing so well so far, keep plodding on :) x

    Basically, hun, don't have anything that's not in your yellow booklet whilst on SS. It's SO easy to knock yourself out of ketosis and it's just not worth the risk by having a diet coke or other fizzy drink.....or a biscuit! lol

    Enjoy the K Fairy and let her do her magic!! lol

    Definitely, its shocking how easily you can be knocked off! Just keep at it yeye, I'm not sure whether that would effect ketosis or not. I never tested if I was out of ketosis after taking beechams I just kind of knew I wasn't and forced myself to keep at it x

    Ketosis is fab, but the one thing I cannot stand is the taste in my mouth and my breath!!!
    I believe you can have listerene strips but the ones I got are mint and I'n not sure if you can have them? Does anyone know?

    i agree im really paronoid about having bad breath cos i can smell it and i get really embarrassed. I use sugar free gum to combat the bad breath and the Trident ones even give you a different taste. I checked with my CDC and she said sugar free gum is fine :D YAY
