    Thumbs up Tig's Diary

    I've been on the forums for a long time. However 3 months into a new relationship I am the heaviest I've been for a while, so I'm doing Atkins (again) as it is my favourite of the low carb varieties! I'm not looking to lose loads, 1 stone initially.

    Starting weight - 12.1 BMI: 24.9

    Day 1
    B. -
    L. Cauliflower cheese, sliced chicken
    D. Gammon steak, spinach and olive oil
    Dr. black coffee, water

    Net carbs: 6g

    I didn't have much time prep today, I didn't have much in! However I've been shopping now and got my essentials

    Day 2
    B. half avocado
    L. Gammon steak, spinach, peppers, olive oil
    D. Omelette with cheddar cheese, mushrooms and onion
    Dr. black coffee, water

    Net carbs: 5g

    Day 2 done I deviated slightly from my original plan for the day.

    I'm not usually hungry in the morning... This morning, I was starving!

    B. 1 avocado with tsp of salad cream
    L. Gammon, pepper and spinach salad with olive oil
    D. Homemade chicken and chorizo soup (an old recipe, just extracted the potato and its pretty much carb free )
    Dr. coffee (2 had a small bit of milk), water

    Net carbs: 12g (I've counted my milk as 5)

    Bar the milk I'm pretty happy with today!

    Planning for tomorrow,
    B. Avocado and salad cream
    L. Tuna mayo salad
    D. Chicken and chorizo soup
    S. I'm climbing tomorrow so I was considering having a few pork scratchings as a snack? Does anyone else eat these (I personally love them, but in conventional diet world they are just plain wrong!)

    Net carbs: 9g

    Hi tig - all sounds good you might want to add more veg as will fill you up and keep your insides happy. It doesn't make any difference to have carbs lower than 20g so you can use them enjoy!

    Oh yes and pork scratchings are great - just check the pack as a couple of brands sneak carbs in

    I'm still here! A couple of glitches over the weekend, but I was 4lb down this morning

    I've got the week off to a good start!
    B. Coffee
    L. Sliced chicken and cheese
    D. Chicken and courgette fritter (homemade)
    Dr. Coffee and water

    Net carbs: 4g

    Not purposefully so low, however I suppose it won't hurt to claw back a bit over weekend!

    Planning for tomorrow!
    B. ? I'll see how hungry I am
    L. Sliced chicken, maybe a greek salad?
    D. Chicken, courgette
    Dr. Coffee and water

    So I ended up eating naff all yesterday. I wasn't hungry. Forced some chicken down.

    Today I have been pretty good (bar 1 biscuit...) but my carbs are still below 20g. Just.

    B. Chicken
    L. Chicken and veg soup
    D. ? Not sure yet
    Dr. Water, coffee, diet coke

    I'm rock climbing tonight, so some exercise too!
