    Well I unofficially started this diet on Monday as I am unable to see my CDC till saturday. I have got a weeks supply of shakes from last year. Anyways my husband has just phoned me and suggested he cook a romantic meal tomorrow. Now dont get me wrong he is a great husband but since we got married he seems to have erased the concept of romance so this is a big deal.

    So my dilema is two fold, firstly what is the best thing if i cave in and let him cook remember hes a man so his talents in the kitchen arent that good, and secondly obviously Valentines day is a one off but most normal ppl within a twelve week period will always have an event or social occassion that is bound to involve food and/or drink to attend what do you all do?

    On a slightly different note my attitude may well change once I have been to see my CDC as at the moment I am in Limbo.

    Just eat the protein and a little veg, keep away from the carbs. Remember not alcohol because it is dangerous when you are in ketosis. I hope you have a lovely evening

    dont use it as an excuse to give up hun. you are doing really well and in ketosis already which is half the battle.

    Have some chicken and salad or some fish or something like that - protein only that isnt going to bring you out of ketosis.

    I wouldnt normally advise you to eat but I know that valentines is a big deal - esp if hubby has offered to cook. Just tell him no pudding.

    why not make him take you out instead - and go somewhere that you can get chicken salad, or steak and salad or something like that.

    Miller and Carter at Boldmere gate of Sutton Park do lovely steaks and it comes with a huge bowl of iceberg lettuce.give hubby your chips and that'll keep him happy as well

    Hi there

    Tricky one and you have to do what you feel is right. When I was faced with social ocassions I decided to be up front about what I was doing and stuck with water and coffee as I was worried that if I ate I would find it hard to get back into SS.

    Whatever you do, enjoy it!
