No, it's not on the list. Probably because it is an oily fish. But I was on another vlcd, W8, and I think they allowed it. It is protein, and the fish oils are healthy ones. I'd say have it instead of tuna. No I don't think it will greatly affect your weight loss.

No it wouldn't as its pure protein.

Check the pack, im sure its got twice as many calories as the same amount of tuna.

That true about the calorie content as when you're doing SS+ you're only allowed 200cals.

It won't kick you out of ketosis but does have more cals in. As a VLCD is a very low calorie diet, if you start upping the cals then you obviously risk slowing your losses. But you'll stay in ketosis and will continue fat-burning, so it's swings and roundabouts really. It's got to be your call although the official CD line is "no", and it's best to stick to the plan 100% if you can!

I agree with Wannabe, it's the calories that are of primary importance, otherwise we'd all be on Atkins ;) xx
