    Hi

    Some of you guys might remember me from a while back :)

    I have been messing about with calorie counting but I am so rubbish at it because I am hungry all the time.

    So after a couple of weeks of will I or won't I - I have decided to start Atkins again - I know it works as I have lost weight before on Atkins.

    I really only have one question about veg - do you have 3 mugs or do you count the carbs as per the packet? It's just that salad veg is so low in carbs so how can 3 mugs of lettuce and cucumber can make up 15g of carbs? Confused lol

    Any answers would be appreciated - roll on tomorrow and I can get going :) xx

    Hiya
    When you say packet, are you buying in pre-bagged salad? One of those bags a day would be enough for me, but I'm not a fan of salad and I have very minimal veg in my diet. I don't feel it's necessary

    Welcome hun.

    I'd follow the book and do what it says for Induction - three mugs a day - and be sure to follow the A and B list (it's all summarised beautifully in Jim's sticky, "so you're thinking of doing Atkins").

    A few of us are going back to Induction after falling heavily and many times off the wagon, so you won't be alone! :)
