Frequently Asked Questions Friday with Suzanne and Lorna:
Can I add vegetables to the products? | VLCD


What if I have to add vegetables? | VLCD

Although we suggest not adding anything additional food items to our VLCD programme, there may be instances where customers need to increase their calorie count for health reasons or for exercise. In this instance you can either add an additional product to your daily allowance or you can add a portion of conventional ketogenic food.

These include:

•Alfalfa Sprouts  •Artichokes  •Asparagus  •Aubergine  •Bamboo Shoots  •Broccoli  •Brussel Sprouts  •Cabbage  •Cauliflower  •Celery  •Chicory  •Courgettes  •Cucumber  •Fennel  •Green Beans  •Leeks  •Lettuce  •Mangetout  •Marrow  •Mushrooms  •Onions  •Pak Choi  •Peppers  •Radish  •Rocket  •Spinach  •Watercress  •Water Chestnuts


[box type=”info” size=”large” style=”rounded” border=”full”]


•Skinless Poultry  •All shellfish  •White Fish  •Oily Fish  •Lean Mince  •Lean Beef  •Lamb  •Ham  •Pork  •Bacon •2 medium sized eggs boiled, poached or scrambled  •Plain low fat cottage cheese  •Quorn  •Soya  •Tofu


Adding these items to your New You Plan Products will inevitably bring the calorie content up and may reduce weight loss, however in reasonable portions they should not impact ketosis which is a huge bonus when it comes to the continuity of the plan as this is the hardest part of the diet.

    Really good to know as I may be going to London for a few days and will try to stay 100% but not always easy in another home.
