So, when I was doing low cal vegetarianism, I found this hot chocolate drink that tasted lovely, was low calorie (I think 30 calories a mug), was relatively low carb for an occasional treat (5 gm a mug), but was of course, a cocktail of chemicals and weird stuff. I had (have) some left, so a few nights ago when I was really craving something sweet and chocolatey, I made myself a mug. I downed about half of it, when I decided to double check the carbs in it. When I glanced at the ingredients, glucose was relatively high on the list. Glucose.
I still finished the mug of chocolate.
However, I know why on previous attempts at low carb this year, things sort of stayed steady. I was drinking that stuff or adding a spoon to fresh whipped cream about every night.
I should bin it, but Mr Moggs likes it, so it’s still there. This is the second thing I found this week that had sugar in it that I used regularly during low carb. The first was a rice vinegar “dressing” which I just assumed was rice vinegar. Because things here sometimes only list the macro-nutrients in 100 g, 100 ml, or whatever, I have to do maths in order to figure out the carbs. If there’s one thing I am, it’s really lazy about maths. It was still relatively low carb, but still.
I have an official weigh in tomorrow and I will update this then.
