    New to atkins

    Hi a little about me, I'm 30 with 2 young boys (4 and 1) I have done every diet going then did Cambridge diet in time for my 30th party and an amazing holiday in New York and got to my lowest weight 13.13!

    But since New York have gained 2 stone back on
    I have tried Cambridge again but just can't do it now. My boys don't sleep great so think the tiredness was making me fail!

    Have decided to give Atkins ago as I no carbs don't agree with me and day one is done and I've loved it just pray I see good results!!

    Would love advice incase I'm going wrong!
    I fear I may have had too much cheese today :-/

    Day one -

    Hot chicken - 2x drumsticks and 2x thighs
    Olives
    2 babybel

    2 egg omelette
    2x bacon
    Mushrooms in butter
    Tsp tomato ketchup

    Chicken breast, pepper, mushrooms skewered
    Salad - lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber
    Cooked chicken breast
    Cheese
    Tbsp ceaser dressing

    Went for an hours swim, steam room and sauna

    1 babybel
    1 pepperami

    Diet coke and water

    How does this sound? And how much cheese are we allowed?

    Hiya and good luck! food looks good, just watch ketchup and dressing they might contain sugar also diet coke can stall people, it contains citric acid that can knock you out of ketosis. I think you're allowed 100g of cheese per day in induction just check out this sticky http://www.minimins.com/atkins-diet/...ng-atkins.html (So You're Thinking Of Starting Atkins)
    Hope it helps

    Hi sunny. Most of the menu sounds great but just want to flag 2 items

    Atkins bars and diet drinks are notorious stallers. Bars worse than drinks possibly but worth avoiding both or at least treating as occasional treats not daily. Keep going

    Hi and welcome. You'll definitely need all your energy with 2 little ones! The Atkins bars taste good but can upset your tummy so see how you go.

    Thankyou very much for the advice!! I will try not have many then. I won't be on much this weekend as away on a hen weekend in Belfast!
    I am going to stick to no carbs when we eat out and stick with vodka at night I no it's not great but didn't want to miss out.

    On Monday I will start my 2 week induction again and have no plans coming up!! I have lost 5lbs so far so really chuffed so can't wait to see what I do in 2 weeks xxx
