Hi, I'm Kim! Like most of you I have been chubby most of my life and struggled with my weight. Over the past 3 years I have been battling the VLCD with little success. In 2011, I successfully lost 3 stone in 2011 using the Cambridge diet. I didn't eat anything from January 1st till March 23rd and got down to 13stone 3- the lowest weight I have been since leaving school 14 years ago.!! I then met my wonderful boyfriend and the binges and meals out began. I've been trying to get back onto the VLCD wagon again but it just doesn't fit into my new lifestyle.
I am now 16st 12 and only 5ft2 so have a massive BMI of 43.2. I like how ketosis feels and have had seem good results so hoping Atkins will work for me. I have read the book and find it a little complicated but think I have the main rules:
20g of net carb per day
12-15 of that should be veggies
So I did a big shop yesterday and am ready to go!! I need to sit down and make a menu plan for the week- that way I can't go wrong!! I'm worried that things will be to bland and ill get bored- need ideas on spices, sauces etc I can make!
So today I'm planning o n 1 egg omelette for breakkie, ham salad for lunch and chicken and veg for tea
So hoping this works for me!!! Any advice or tips much appreciated!!!
