    if it is 20g how do you get to ketosis doing cambridge....
    as each shake is 14ish grams... and a porrige is 16ish... and ob bars are more.
    so 3 shakes a day is 45ish grams +

    this is where im confused!

    its 20 net carbs, you have to deduct dietary fibre and polyols.

    Same as Atkins really, but CD is VLCD also.

    on atkins you discount the meat you had in your carb count - just count the carbs in veggies, breads, pastas, potatoes etc xx

    As I said, its net carbs, pure meat doesn't contain carbs, thats why on atkins you can eat theses till your full.

    net carbs = total carbs - dietary fibre - polyols. Thats it. Have a look at this site, might help you.

    Shazza sorry to but in but just wanted to say be careful if you're drinking on CD. Might have missed another post but it can be really dangerous.
