    Hi all,

    Returning to atkins tomorrow after a month on lighterlife to shift some stubborn fat and now i'm back to lose the rest.

    Anybody else switched from a VLCD? Worried about the initial gain, anybody tell me what to expect? Any way i can limit a gain? :eek:

    Here we go, my first day :)

    No breaky, just not hungry first thing in the morning and by the time i get to work and get organised it's 11am!

    Lunch was chicken salad with lettuce, small tomato, spring onion, yellow pepper, cucumber, grated cheese and mayo

    Snack was a bit of chicken i had left over in the fridge

    Dinner is 2 pork belly slices, cauli mash with butter, grated cheese and black pepper. Might throw in some broccolli too

    Had one cup of coffee and around 2 litres of water so far.

    Think i've stayed in ketosis from the switchover from LL as i've got dog breath ;)

    Thankyou :) Loving the smell of it cooking and so nice to be able to eat again! Don't know why i went back to LL as could probably lose the same on atkins but i just needed to be a bit strict and give myself a kick up the butt!

    Day 2 and feeling OK, apart from very bloated !

    Had a ham salad with grated cheese and mayo for lunch, 2 boiled eggs as a snack and dinner will be belly pork with broccolli and a mushroom sauce (if it turns out OK ha).

    Don't suppose we can make sauces using sour cream instead of double cream?

    OMG that was THE most gorgeous meal! I could actually eat it all again and had to tell myself not to lick the plate haha :)

    You've done fab Katie! How long did it take you to get to target? Was it all with atkins?

    Think i've overdone it with the cream.....oops, suppose i will know on Saturday morning when i weight myself ;) Noticed a few people don't do so well with cheese so once i've settled down i'll do a week without certain things and see how that affects me x

    Hi claire - yes all with atkins and taken a couple of weeks over a year. Might have been able to do it faster but moved through owl and premaintenance phases to try help the move to maintenance - feels like the "right" way of eating now;)

    I'm lucky that cheese doesn't seem to stall me - but sugar free goodies and wine are dangerous:D keep going!

    That's great, gives me an incentive to stick to this for good! How much did you average losing a week? Would love to be at target by April but already 3lbs heavier then when i stopped LL on Monday :(

    If you take a look at the second post in my diary thread you can see all my weekly losses - remember that it all slows down as you get towards target weight though:) and quite a few people have a little bounce up when they move over so dont panic!

    Hi everyone :) does anybody know of an alternative to cream to make a sauce for fish pie? Seems cream gives me a bad belly! Xx

    What about watered down mayo?

    Or try the Schwartz hollandaise sauce - it's low in carbs, exact details on the low carb shopping list
