    Sweetcorn

    I've done the Atkins before and also the Idiot Proof Diet that is bascially Atkins and The South Beach diet combined. You can have full fat Phildelphia nothing low fat but have to still watch portions (so not a full tub of it!). You can have swede again in small portions. You are not allowee any other the others you listed in your post at all.

    Atkins for Life by Robert C. Atkins is a very good book that explains very well how to do this diet.

    You can have decaf tea and coffee but i drink normal tea and coffee and still have milk and still go into ketosis,i think its all about finding the right balance for youself found out what works for you try differenet things its the only way to know what you can have and what to avoid.Lucyxx
