It's easier for me to stick to the rules when I know exactly what they are. The good thing about the ketosis thing is that you really need to be in it all the time - bouncing in and out makes it more difficult.
If I do slip, I tend to beat myself up over small things, like eating an apple, or maybe eating a biscuit on aeroplane that has like 15 carbs. I realise that these are really, really small, in the grand scheme of things, but it stops me from the bigger transgressions like eating a whole packet of Chocolate HobNobs.
To be honest, I think I've broken the hold that carbohydrates had over me (and almost everyone else). I don't really desire them that much.

ended up eating 10 jaffa cakes and my bs afterwards went up to 15.7!!!
1 brisk half hour walk later, and 3 big glasses of water - down to 10.7 (still very bad) and I still feel dreadful
Lesson learned: no amount of cake or chocolate helps with stress and it causes more problems to deal with. Next time i will have a glass of red wine instead.
There are 12 Jaffa Cakes in a pack! What happened to the other two?
