    I am not too sure about this , you should ask your CDC if they you out of contain anything that my knock you out of ketosis , are you activelly trying for a baby now ? because if you are I really dont think you should do a TFR diet , the state of ketosis could be quite dangerous to a newly forming embryo and its really not worth the risk in my opinion

    I would suggest you ring your CDC and check that the tabs wont take you out of ketosis, or you could wait the 3 weeks to until you come off just to be sure .
    I hope everything works out for you :)

    Take the folic acid. It won't take you out of ketosis and women pregnant or trying to conceive need more than the standard amount of it, so you will be fine to "top-up". And it would mean you're covered if you were to get pregnant earlier than planned - lots of women on VLCDs seem to have surprise pregnancies as for some it seems to boost ovulation.

    Best of luck with your next pregnancy.
