    Does anyone have a list of what is low carb for fruit/veg and snacks please? Or even suggestions.

    Ive seen a few online but they're mainly herbs and stuff I would never eat.. I just wanted a list of normal every day things that you can buy in the supermarket lol x

    If you're on a vlcd you can't have fruit. You probably cant have most of the low carb snacks around either if you're in ketosis

    No fruit allowed

    You can have the following

    Very small portion of peppers

    That's all I have had previously its best to try and have a protein based meal though

    Where did you all get the info on no fruit?

    The booklet that came with my shake that weight says a typical day is 3 shakes, 2 healthy snacks such as a small handfuls of nuts, pieces of fruit or low fat low sugar yoghurt and then a healthy evening meal.

    Further in the booklet it says choose fruits with skin where possible as this adds fibre to your diet and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

    No fruit is a pretty basic rule on a ketogenic vlcd. The sugars etc will kick you out of ketosis

    Yoghurt isnt allowed on a tfr vlcd either.

    The snacks shakes and fruit idea doesn't sound like a vlcd at all

    Thanks star! I think shake that weight need to think about a new booklet that they send out to their customers lol

    Im still sure im doing something wrong though. Ive been doing a diary in the diary section, maybe someone could take a look and kick me with what im doing wrong? :) xx

    Hi there I had same booklet but they have several ways of doing vlcd, you can do ketone way or not... Basically it's a choice, you can do in the booklet but may not be in ketosis but still vlcd..... I prefer ketosis as then you don't crave sugar. I have little bit of ham or chicken if I really need to. At least 2 times per week I eat a meal which is tuna or chicken with green veg only (no peas) and I have not been out of ketosis, but everyone is different. Best of luck I've not long started either and it's going very well!

    Deff agree smuffin bad advice in that booklet. Any snacks I have are protein only and if im having a small meal I have protein and a little bit of green veg like kale spinach or brocolli. Not worth risking being out of ketosis by having fruit etc.
