    Thumbs up Atkins all the way

    Hey!

    back on here as I'm starting phase 1 today and need plenty of advice. I'm back on here to steal your menus too!!

    Me Currently

    I have not WI as this time last year I got to goal (9.7 from 11st) without WI and did well without it.
    I think I'm at around 10.7-11 currently. I'm also restarting my daily Pilates (which I can't recommend enough to all, beginners or hard-cores).

    So here goes!


    Been low carb for 4 days so should be nearing ketosis. Done 15mins of Pilates today and hope to do the full 30mins mon to fri. No menu yet, this is where I'm getting stuck.

    Challenges

    although I've been low carb, think I'm eating too much. So need to get my portion control in check.
    can someone please tell me how many grams of protein are recommended?

    Hope all of you are well and fighting fit!
    Goal - when I feel happy with how my clothes fit

    Hi Busy, I remember you got to goal. It's been very quiet on here lately and a lot of us are not strictly low carb, but welcome back.

    Hi CL, yes I exceeded my goal by getting to 9st - without intention as i really got into atkins. I noticed it was pretty quiet on here, but the eason I've not been on here is because I've been low carb-ISH! hence the gain. Thank you for your warm welcome, hope all is well with you.

    Yesterday was another good day, I had not used all my calories or carbs for two days previous so I could enjoy more food on sunday - which is a relaxed family day and we usually go out to eat but remained all within the plan. 10g over in carbs, but I earned it through saving carbs fri and sat. Pilates is done this mooring so feeling accomplished. Im going to put some pics up later too as I'm not WI-in, so can gauge my results.

    Hoping to get a chance to catch up with diaries later too.

    Yesterday was a little high on the carb side as i made a lamb mince or keema curry, so an onion and tomato tipped me very much over the induction carb limit. I also had some black eyed peas which were 14g - not to worried as at least its not pizza o chocolate.

    Its very quiet on here, but I will just rant to, myself.

    Did you grill your own artichokes? I love them, but always been afraid of them- they look complicated! I love beans they keep me full.

    They were quite easy, I quartered it and have used it for lunch last 4 days. I covered...erm smothered it on oil added a few flakes of dried red chilly and lightly grilled - they were fab! I love beans too, my only down fall on atkins. Imm indian so miss daal (pulses very much).

    Stressful day at the office, after which battling the worst traffic finally got to school, only to discover DS2 had eaten glue! Spent 40 mins with matron waiting for NHS direct to call back. Then had to wait a further 20 mins while dear nephew went on a wild goose around school looking for his shoes. Thennnnnnnnn back out into traffic.

    Fab end to the day though, had a lovely bath and now in bed with a book. Trying to
    deliberately avoid the apprentice sensationism! much rather do something more constructive with my time. If anyone's interested I'm reading "the letter" by kathryn hughes, recommend totally.

    Think its been ok food wise will know for certain when I add all the ingredients of the lamb curry into my fitness pal tomorrow.
