    I had pickled onions on my SS+ last night to ceelebrate (at least it wasnt choc or cake or bread...mmm, bread!).
    Someone said it would kick me out of ketosis - when would that happen....... straight away or in a few days?
    I have Keystix but dont want to waste them if its inevtible anyway.

    Near enough straight away .... but the amount you've had will mean you are probably back in again now anyway ... so don't worry and don't bother testing!!

    Hi, Im doing SS and it is hard, but I think it is really hard no matter which diet you choose, so dont be too down on yourself. You made a good choice and that is what it is all about. :) Jools x

    As filrtygreeneyes said, if something is going to knock you out of ketosis, I think it'll do it pretty much as soon as the food hits your stomach.

    When you eat "real" food, your body basically says "Wahay! Carbs, sugar, energy! Let's get that glycogen store filled again, here you go brain/muscles, here's some regular energy, you don't need that broken-down fat stuff anymore!"

    OK, a little dramatic, but you get the idea :p


    Still, what you actually get from the onions would be so little that you'd be back in Ketosis pretty soon, and by now probably are.

    So don't worry :)



    PS What were you celebrating?

    Will do :D

    Have to admit, I'm a fan of the pickled onion too, even if it does give me killer indegestion when I eat more than 1!
