    hi hon

    ive been having a bit of a rough time on it too lately i know we all say so but it does get better! hide the scales and try not to weigh in between you official weigh ins it can really effect your frame of mind

    i just copied this from faqs

    Hot off the press for SS+ :)

    PROTEIN
    120 g Chicken or turkey (skinless)
    190 g Cod haddock or white fish
    250 g Tofu
    200 g Quorn
    180 g Tinned tuna (in water)
    125 g Prawns
    225 g low fat cottage cheese
    2 medium eggs
    (ALL UNCOOKED WEIGHTS)

    Plus
    TWO (15 ML) tablespoons of any cooked or raw veg from the list
    Asparagus
    Kale
    Broccoli
    Lettuce
    Cabbage (even pickled)
    Marrow
    Mushrooms
    Cauliflower
    Pac choi
    Celeriac
    Red radishes
    Spinach
    Celery
    Turnip tops (leafy part)
    Watercress
    Chinese leafy greens
    Courgettes
    Cucumber
    Fennel
    Green salad leaves

    Or as before
    200ml skimmed milk
    4 cambridge products regardless of height or gender.

    re the cooking, any way that doesn't require oil etc so grill bake microwave etc.

    as for sauces be carefull this was my recent error that knocked me straight out of ketosis! but you can have fat free dressings or balsamic vinegar etc you can season your chicken with herbs and spices.

    hope this helps

    enjoy xxxx

    yeah you should defo stay in ketosis

    ketosticks you can get from any major chemist.

    ps...... although i can often tell i am in ketosis ie the foul taste in my mouth etc, it often doesnt show for me on the sticks. they are handy but dont obsess with them like i often have to no avail

    I am on day 7 as a restarter on SS/SS+ and i have used Ducolease (i think that is how it is spelt)

    It is hard to stay focused on this diet, and i have fallen off the wagon loads, but with xmas 7 weeks away i am determined to reach goal by then. If i get hungry i have a chicken breast (anywhere between 50g and 100g in weight) covered in loads of herbs and spices and roasted in the oven... Delicious.

    My day is as follows....

    1030 i have leek and pots soup

    330/ 400 is spicy tom

    6ish the chicken i mentioned above

    9pm is Oriential soup.

    I only have 2 stone to loose, but i have done SS and now with a BMI 25ish i need to move up to 810, so i that is why i have been introducing the chicken. Good luck. Stay strong.

    o god yes to laxatives!!! i would have blown by now without them i too use dolcolax or however you spell it. thing is i feel the need to use them maybe twice a week but i dont i think surely that often cannot be good for me! im trying to use em no more than once a week.

    you should prob be using the fibre supliment too.

    re: sugar free gum - yes you can but its no good for some. apparently it makes your stomache think its getting food and then it subsequantly produced those acids to break down the food although there is no food lol so you can get a rumbly tum and feel more hungry. you can have sugar free mints in moderation. i am yet to grasp the moderation bit lol. i go for sugar free polos as they are quite hard so im not as tempted to chew em up. but when i start i kinda eat the hole pack and amazingly i have recently discovered there are 80 kals in a pack of sugar free polos!!! so kinda stopped them. i have bought a mint mouth spray from the chemist now........ seems a safer option lol

    Not allowed peppers unfortunately :( I love peppers too!
    I have bought loads of schwartz perfect shake spice things as reccommended by my CDC and been having Cajun and piri piri spiced grilled chicken. Also used Chinese 5 spice and a bit of curry powder with chicken mushrooms and cabbage and made a very yummy stir fry the other day!

    You have to be very inventive haha :)
