I dont know about pickled gerkins, but I know last time round I had some beetroot(I am another naughty pickle lover!) on my AAM week, it didnt give me any difference to my weight loss..but when I checked the fresh beetroot it had loads of carbs in it, pickled doesnt have as much.
The only prob is(as I found with diet coke and zero coke) they dont intefere with Ketosis or weight loss but they did seem to set off my cravings!
So this time round I am going to try and steer clear of anything thats not in the book...just to be on the safe side!
Have a good evening...remember the pickles will be there when your excess weight isnt..hang in there..you will be at goal soon and can eat pickles till they come out of your ears!
