Any tips for getting back into ketosis quickly or with minimal set backs? I am also wondering about making a soup, adding vegetables, and then refrigerating it for later. Does that work? Will it reheat ok? Thanks so much in advance. I'm really excited about working this program. In my initial first week. I was never hungry and really like the taste of all of the food. Thanks again for any support!
Welcome stephyank! I agree with Lisa, just get back to 100% and you'll be back in ketosis and losing before you know it. It's important if you slip to get right back - small slips can become day or week long slips very easily and then it's that much hard to get back to being OP.

I pre-make soups with veggies all the time and then heat them at work. Sometimes need to add a little extra water when heating and don't heat them in the shaker cup with the lid on! You can end up with a hot mess.
