    Hi all,

    I just started a ketogenic diet a couple of days ago. I've been eating very cleanly and closely monitoring my macro and micronutrient intake. I'm trying to drop 10kg of body fat. So far, I feel incredible. I feel full of energy and perfectly satiated on sub 2,000 calories. However, my parents are going out tomorrow and giving me Domino's. A large pizza there is close to 400g of carbohydrates which will no doubt replenish my liver glycogen. I'm really worried it will completely refuel my hunger and make dieting again very difficult. Can someone put my mind at ease?

    Why don't you just cook your own food? If you've been eating like that for a few day maybe it's a good idea to shock your body for a bit. If you're trying to lose weight then eating 2000 calories is too much (if you're a girl and not working out especially).

    Do you not have any choice about whether you get Domino's or not? You could just eat something out the fridge?

    On the contrary. I'm an 18 year old male, about 6'2" and 95kg. I do cardio and weight resistance 4 times a week.

    That's okay then. Why does it have to be pizza? There are so many other things you can get that are protein based.

    Most of the takeaway foods/microwaveable meals I've encountered are quite high in carbohydrates which are what I'm limited to due to my lack of ability to cook. Not to mention, my Sister also really wants Domino's so there's that added temptation watching her eat the stuff. Do you think this is going to knock my hunger control out of whack in the long run or is this just a minor hiccup my body will recover from within a couple of days?

    Hi. Sorry I don't know much about this diet, but it's not hard to cook a basic meal for yourself. Maybe have some pasta and beans or a jacket potato or pick up some microwave soup in the day tomorrow?

    But if you only started this diet a couple of days ago I'm guessing you got used to it pretty quick so a small cheat might not be too bad. I'm pretty sure Domino's have some items like wraps on their menu which might be a bit better for you than pizza.

    It's only one meal. It's not going to harm you.

    Tell your sister not to eat it in front of you and go to her room.
    Then if you don't see or smell it you won't get tempted.
    And it's easy to shove a little chicken fillet breast in the oven or grill which will only take 10 or 15 minutes and make a salad with Pomeigne, lettuce, Tomatoes, onions, cucumber and pour salad cream on top
