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.

I ate a whole bread roll in week 2 at a wedding and stayed in ketosis not sure how many grams that would be

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.

Yeh, thanks ASP, only having really small ones, helps me sleep. Have had the misfortune of drinking at a wedding years ago when I did CD the 1st time, had to go home early :-(

Kes, you might have blown it with the rice, babes. Only to knock you out of ketosis but I think you will still have a loss this week. Im sorry to be brutal about it darling but you know I loves ya xx
