Is anyone tracking their ketones using strips? I started and it’s showing moderate levels. I also see a lot of the recipes I choose are Health Level 4 – is that bad and there are better options or is it good for what I’m trying to do? I am doing IF, but just started a couple of days ago.

Hi, Vieceli. Yes, the concept of intermittent fasting is that you don’t eat anything at all during the fasting period (you can drink water, of course). It may be better for you to consider our regular low-carbohydrate route, which provides three main meals plus three snacks in between – designed with diabetics in mind. To access this, just deselect the fasting option in your profile, then generate a new menu.

Hi, Amira1971. No, that won’t mess up ketogenesis. What risks ketogenesis is not having more fat than carbohydrates+protein. Our meals are balanced so that this is not a risk.

When you are fasting do you eat nothing at all? I’m diabetic and can’t just not eat at all.

Hello. I am new to this one week in to be precise. I find that some of the meals that say 1 serving is still a bit much for me to eat (I can not finish all the food) is that okay? Or do i have to eat the whole meal? Would that mess up the ketogenesis is I can not consume every bite of food?

Hi, SandySandy. About 2/3 cup of tomato juice is a vegetable exchange. Yes, one cup of sweet potato is 200 grams.

How many vegetables is 1 cup of tomato juice?
Is it possible that 1 cup of sweet potato is really 200 grams? it is a lot.

Hi, joycesevere16. Artichokes are considered a starch, and tomatoes are considered to be a vegetable here (even though it’s technically a fruit, of course).

Hi Ossie-Sharon, Are artichokes considered vegetables or starch? Tomatoes-are they veggies or fruit?

thank you again.

Hi, SandySandy. Vegetables are important to general nutrition, which makes them important for any plan. We are particularly interested in good nutrition and health here. If you don’t like vegetables, try sneaking them into your other foods. For example, tomato sauce for pasta counts as a vegetable, as does vegetable soup. If you want, you can swap one of the vegetables for a low-carbohydrate fruit like cantaloupe, strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries.

How important are vegetables to this diet? i know they are important because of vitamins and minerals (which i get anyway from vitamin supplements) and also to make you feel sated, which i am without them. but – i am struggling with them and i have tried many different kinds. I’m great with proteins and the 2 fruits. carbs are usually too much for me. but the veggies are really a struggle.

Hi, SandySandy. I have forwarded your query to tech support. Someone will get back to you soon.

Meanwhile, you absolutely can use the menu from another day.

help!! i just deleted menu#12 and i don’t know what to eat tomorrow Sunday. Can you get it back to me? or at least sunday’s menu? 🙁
if not, i guess i can just use a menu from one of the other days this week. i copy each one once it’s finalized and/or the day is over.

Hi, achavez108. Xanthan gum helps with the binding and texture of products. You can find it at gourmet shops or in the baking section of some regular supermarkets. You can also order it online, including through major websites like Amazon.
