    I just wondered if anyone knew why only two tablespoons of vegetables are allowed in the 200 calorie meal on SS+ - it just seems so little! If you were eating watercress or rocket or something salad-y like that, would it really matter if you ate three or four tablespoons or even the whole bag?! (Bearing in mind a bag would only be about 20-30 calories.) :confused:

    Or is there another, more scientific, reason?!

    I think it's to do with the amount of carbohydrate in the veg, a small amount could tip the balance and put you out of ketosis... maybe another more experienced dieter will back me up, lol!

    I thought that - I am on SS+ and the amount of veg v the amount of chicken (and even more fish) on you plate is crazy!!
    Not that i am complaining - i love having a small meal!

    I had a little search round to find carb values of veg and found this site with a table of carb values.. Vegetable Carb Counter
    Carrots are 7.3g per portion, and leeks are 12.6g :eek: I certainly didn't realise that!

    Yes, people often just think of carbs in terms of pasta, pots etc. There's a fair amount in fruit and veg too.

    All good, but not helpful in the early stages of CD when you are trying to stay in ketosis.
