I have been doing phase 1 for about 1 1/2 weeks now and so far I have been doing great!

This morning I decided to give myself a little treat and made the mock pancakes from the recipe forum. I used this syrup which I had in my fridge pre-P1, I assumed it would be ok since it is SF.

After my very yummy breakfast (thanx for the recipe!:D), I began to enter the info from the syrup into fitday. I know this is not a low-carb diet, but all those carbs from sorbitol freaked me out.

Before I use this again I want to make sure, is it legal?

Thanx in advance for any help!

It's probably OK - if you don't mind eating all the unpronounceables! The sorbitol could give you digestive problems.

I don't love the unpronounceables, but since I have not had any digestive problems with this syrup, I'll keep using it as a treat with those yummy pancakes.

Thanx for the help Ruth :)
