    Hi Lilminx and welcome. Take a look at the stickie at the top entitled "So you are thinking of starting Atkins" That'll give you some guidance.

    hello fellow dog shower :) what a beautiful whippet :D
    Atkins flu will probably hit within a couple of days - yes its awful but once you get over it you get bags of energy and you can eat loads of meat and cheese - best diet ever :)

    Hi yes only just amateaur showing only started a couple of years ago :) congrats on his title :)
    the first symptoms are metallic taste in your mouth, stinky wee and tiredness, BUT if you drink plenty of water (id say over 3 litres of pure water per day if not more) you shouldnt be too bad. Limp hair never heard of that TBH. Its worth it though as when your body starts burning fat instead of carbs you get loads of energy and glowy skin :)

    If you want to take piccie off go to user cp at the top and go to amend sig and delete the pic
