    I'm on a VLCD (you'll mainly find me in the Slim n Save forum) but I've got a question which might be better addressed to anyone doing a VLCD. Will a few sugarfree sweets bring me out of ketosis or affect my losses? I have 3 sugarfree sweets leftover from a while back, and I'm really feeling like a treat. I'd hate to ruin things for myself though...so, I guess I'm curious.

    the sugar free fat free carb free jelly which you can get on amazon which comes in packs of 8 for 8quid shouldn't knock you out of ketosis if had as a treat x

    Personally I wouldn't have sweets while doing a vlcd even if they are sugar free.
    We are doing this diet to get away from food and giving yourself a food treat just seems like a really bad idea to me.

    It was just a momentary lapse, and I rode it through without any sweets. You're very much right Blue_Butterfly, it's just quite easy to forget :)

    chockylove, if you're on Lipotrim I don't think you can actually have anything like this at all. I was on Lipotrim previously and everything was off limits (when I did it anyway) apart from the shakes, soups and bars, black tea / coffee and water.

    Having sweets on a VLCD is a bad move anyway I think.
