Im confused.Can we have unlimited veg or do we have to be more cautious.I wasjust counting 400 cals.Any advice would be great. Do we still stay in ketosis on the 400 cal aday diet

Apparently... from what I've read, you have to stick to GREEN veg. Carrots are full of sugar which would i suppose bring you out of Ketosis?

Have you seen the "helpful list of ketogenic foods" posted by buxombarrister on the main exante thread? It's worth a look, and says carrots, corn and peas are in the higher carb bracket.... I would have thought peas were ok so am going to be printing off her list for when I have to go back to food..... very helpful..... (apparently wine and vodka are not too evil either... wish she hadn't told me that :rolleyes:) lol
