    It might sound a bit silly but am I ok to have salt and pepper in my soup? I have been having a lot of pepper in my vegetable soup for the past few days and wondered if this would cause any problems?

    maybe not the salt as it will retain water in your body. Pepper is fine.

    Yeah, salt is a big no-no because it makes you retain fluid but pepper is a big thumbs up so pepper away! lol

    Hi, I bought an Atkins carb guide and keep it in my bag for any emergency occasions when I may have no option but to eat so I can limit the damage as much as possible.

    It says in the book that 1 teaspoon of white pepper has 1.4g of carbs (0.9g net carbs) and 1 teaspoon of black pepper has 1.3g of carbs (0.8g net carbs) - I believe it is the net carbs that are the important figures to count.

    I can't imagine that it would make too much difference going on those figures would you?
