Hi Janet, You may want to check the macro calculator if weight loss is your goal. I love this diet plan, but did not lose any weight yet. I signed up for the pdf printable low carb list but, I received an email with food recipes & Newsletter but no pdf included. Hi Verna, Yes, unfortunately steel cut oats would prevent you from being in ketosis. While we can’t provide medical advice, I recommend our support group for support and answers to personal questions like these.
