    Ive recently joined and Ive had time to look through all the different diets , some Ive tried previously and some I havent.
    Ive decided to try Atkins this time as I know low carb is the way to go.

    So, Im saying hello and can I join you on the Atkins Diet?
    But , I dont want to start until after the New Year so that I can enjoy the wonderful foods over xmas. :D :xmassign:

    My excuse is that it will give me lots of time to read up and be ready to start in January

    I don't know, we have quite a strict entry test involving a unicycle, tight rope and giant bowl of custard.




    Welcome :)

    The custard is made with splenda and double cream though!

    Hello and welcome :D

    Hi and welcome. Probably a good idea to start reading up now and maybe post a bit here. I'm sure there will be lots of newbies in January

    Welcome! If I were you I'd start now - kind of! Enjoy all the nice meals but start having LC fry ups in the morning (instead of cereals etc if you do) and swap to snacking on all the delicious meats, cheeses and winter veg around instead of chocs etc - will be a nice gentle way of easing you into LCing until you start properly in the new year.

    Aww, thankyou so much for the welcome .
    I cant wait for the custard and the tightrope doesnt fear me as Im sure my weight will put it down on the ground anyway :D lol.
    If I can swop the unicycle for a pony then I think I might pass :)

    Jim, Ive been reading as much as I can, the threads are brilliant and people have contributed so much to them.
    Im so impressed with the recipies and I like the daily menus that everyone is putting up.

    Im going to write out some recipies and sample menus so that I can get focused on it.
    My breakfast is usually scrambled eggs anyway but my big big downfall is chocolate.
    I have no idea how Im going to deal with that one yet and the sugar addiction that goes with it.
    Hmmmm the expression , going cold turkey springs to mind ! :8855:

    Thornton's diabetic chocolate seems quite a popular alternative around here. I've never had any, but I do keep a bar of Green and Blacks 80% dark choc in the fridge - perfect for when I need to take the edge off my choc cravings - only 15g carbs per 100g (good compared to alot of others!)

    Thankyou for that Michael :)
    Its certainly going to take some willpower and lifechanges but Ive got to do something instead of moaning about it.

    Exactly! Only person that can do anything about it is yourself. Once you start losing a few pounds you'll be psyched to carry on. It's kind of addictive, but in a good way. Also your appetite does change. It's hard to explain before you start but cravings do become less powerful. They're still there but just not as appealing.

    Hi welcome to the wonderful world of Atkins.... as well as the entry test you have to be an alcoholic!! Although combining the two things makes passing the entry test much easier! x
