    Evening Everyone,
    Hope you all had an ok Monday....
    I just have a quick question about the sweetners you can use. Are there some allowed and some not allowed? I know when I've done Atkins in the past they count as 1 net carb? I can live without them if they jepordize ketosis.
    Thank youuuuuuuuuu

    one off the interweb...
    Some of the granulated-type ones are made from sucralose, a derivative of sugar. 'Splenda' does, I'm not sure about the rest though, so can't help - best avoiding the lot. (I think canderel and the tesco stuff is aspartame based, which AFAIK should be OK, but don't quite me on that.) I think a lot of the advice comes from the states where they use sucralose and sucron all the time.

    But, TBH,the easiest and cheapest way to adjust your shakes is by dropping in a tablet sweetener or two with the water and powder, and it'll dissolve on mixing. We know the tablets are diet-kosher, and a packet lasts one hell of a lot longer than a jar of fluff.
