    Hi Hannah

    Depending on how many carbs you had, you may find you haven't dropped fully out of ketosis - you're just not registering in the pink this morning. Stick with the plan, drink loads of water, and you should be back in ketosis within a day or so.

    Hannah did u get back into ketosis then?
    I have cheated the odd once or twice and it usually has knocked me into a lower state of ketosis so that when i do a test it wont register however i still loose weight... just very very slowly.
    Id took me 2 days to get back into last time, but guess what.... i cheated again so should be back in tomorrow, its silly cos i start AAM next saturday! I just wonder how i will loose wight on AAM when it seems that a few crackerbread and a cereal bar knocked me out of it!!!

    Hey Crewboi, AAM is carefully calculated with minimal carbs so you should still lose weight on it. But you are right - you are slowing things down with the lil nibbles here and there. You're almost half way there - full steam ahead!! :D

    Hi Crewboi

    It's all to do with carbs versus protein. Carbs will bring you out of ketosis but protein shouldn't. AAM week is based mainly on protein so this is the reason that most people will stay in ketosis.

    Hope that helps.
