    Hi all,
    Just reading through my 'manual' and noticed on ss+ that onions aren't on the list of veggies? Does anyone know why? I thought that they were mainly water...

    Aw mannn i was looking forward to some nice Tuna and Onion in a few weeks! :cry:

    Onions do contain small amounts of carbs so they're not advised on a ketogenic VLCD (or, indeed, a normal ketogenic diet!) as they can tip you out of ketosis if you're carb sensitive.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news - I'd love some onions too!

    If u cook onions down they caramelise because of the sugar in them, other vegetables don't hav as much sugar in... Maybe something to look forward to in the future x

    Ohh when I was little my dad used to make me chive sandwiches! Or sometimes just a bowl of chopped chives with salt and vinegar!
    hmm well I am planning on starting to have a little food again for Easter - I shall plan on chives then!
