    So whats in it that makes it possible to eat?

    Only could find this Calories in Sauce, Ready-to-serve, Pepper, Tabasco

    1tsp has 1 calorie no fat or carbs just sodium... it seems like black magic to me.

    also are we allowed other types of tabasco other than the red original?

    I know its not in the book, but what about dried herbs and spices? I guess it may have some carbs in or citric acid...but surely in essence its the same as leaf tea, probably not.

    I wont risk it but I am just curious as to how I could "spice" up the packs.

    Hi Flex. We were told strictly only normal tabasco or pepper. Not sure why but i wouldnt risk it - your doing too well to chance risking it

    Hi

    I think it is mainly to keep you from being psychologically tricked. If you start messing about addingthings, to make it "tastier" - it could perhaps make some start adding a little bit more of this and that and soon enough they are adding a drop of olive oil, or parmesean, etc.

    I do not think anything will affect ketosis - but its to readdirm that the time spent on abstinance is head-work, and not about making things tasty. :)

    That is what I always figured. We too were told only S&P and tabasco.

    If you get bored with flavours, try micing them half and half to make new tastes. :)

    That's what puts me off that soup, I can't work out what the chewy bits are supposed to be!

    Didn't realise it had to be the red tobasco, we only have the green but I don't use it often.

    yeah, thats right, ....was getting the mushroom soup confused....forget there was another chewy soup on LL. I think you are right...soya or tempeh - sue has the conistancy of that.

    I loved the Thai soup - it was my favourite, and I was dissappointed if there were not a lot of bits...some packs had a lot of those little pieces and others not so much. But it makes it nice the had something to chew, even if it is only litte.

    Well done Dazzle. Hope that is enough to get you motivated again. Dont look at what is ahead of you - look at what you have achieved and be proud of yourself. I done an hour spinning class on thurs night and another hour this morning. Before i started LL i would hardly leave the house except to go to work. I wouldnt even go into tescos - as i was so ashamed of what i had become and somehow felt that i didnt deserve to be in buying food. I actually took panic attacks around people because i felt everyone was talking about the size of me.So it was such a big thing for me to walk into a gym and across the floor in front of everyone and get on a spinning bike. I thought i was going to be sick. My palms were sweating and i thought my legs were going to give way - but i did it and got on the bike and completed the entire class. That has got to be my biggest achievement so far - walking into that gym x

    Well done I Will Get There.
    What a scary thing to do! Well done you.
    Remember that feeling.
    You WILL get there. xx

    Dazzle - well done you for making yourself go to the class.
    It is definitely harder when your routine is disrupted. Try and work out a contingency plan if you know that kind of situation is coming up next time. It does get easier - honest!
    Hold that feeling about the white tunic - things will only get better.
    LL works so well if you stick to it 100%
    Good luck xx
