    Whatever programme you choose for your maintenance... i thought if we could make a list of any top tips... then it would help everyone!!!

    So here goes!!!!

    Low fat yogs have generally got more carbs in than the regular version.

    The GI of carrots goes from 30 to 85 When you cook them!!!!!!

    Beetroot has quite a high GI (Lol!!!)

    I'm a lipotrim newbie but I've done Atkins loads of times and all low fat dairy products have more carbs cos they replace the fat with sugar and sweeteners :-(

    You can make fab low carb chocolate pudding with a teaspoon of bournville drinking choc powder, double cream and a bit of sweetener

    Low carb sweets have a laxative effect and give you the runs - the ones that don't knock you out of ketosis

    Caffeine can mess up low carb although not for everyone, stuck to decaff if you can

    There are a lot of Dukan recipes that are low carb as well. you can find them on the minimins Dukan site. Dukan replace white sugar with sweetener so your sugar level will stay the same and won't give you the munchies. X

    Montignac explains the coffee thing Dee. It's a bugger because I love my coffee too but Susie's right. The caffiene overstimulates your pancreas so it produces more insulin than needed, just like when you eat a high GI food. Decaf is fine or, amazingly espresso! Like I said with Montignac you need to relearn a lot of what you thought about food!

    On the plus side.....I love the fact that 70% cocoa solids chocolate has a low GI :D

    Slimming World, Dietchef, Lipotrim - now maintaining (I hope!).
    My top tip for maintaining is to stick around here on Minis ..... No matter how 'bad' you might be, whatever happens the support you'll get on here will get you through and back onto the straight and narrow far more quickly than trying to go it alone.
    I speak as someone into their 3rd year of maintenance and actually struggling at the moment .... but if I wasn't on here who knows where I'd be and how I'd be doing!!

    We CAN do this!!! xxx :D xxx
