    So completed day 3 today and iv got to say so far so good. Iv had a little headache n quite thirsty but nothing major. Think it may have something to do with the wk from hell on lipotrim. After the side effects on that anythiing else is manageable for me haha

    I'm not entirely convinced I'm doin it all by the book but I'm hopin for the best. Iv not cheated and I'm not craving carbs. I'm finding it hard to believe though that eatin what I am will let me lose weight. I never would eat sausage and egg for breakfast usually, most of the time its a cpl of slices of toast.

    My typical diet has been

    Breakfast:

    2 eggs/handfull of mushrooms or 2 low carb sausages with eggs

    Dinner:

    Salad, 30g mayo, 30g cheese, tuna

    Tea:

    Salad,, 30g feta or cheddar cheese with pork or ham!

    Drinks

    3 coffees using 2 teaspoons of cream in each

    Well fingers crossed it works for me like it has done for many of you xx

    well done!

    just one thought though, rather than 2 salads a day, try salad for lunch then green veg for dinner, more fibre and roughage that way.

    My aim for today then, veg for tea. Thanks for the advice. Was pure laziness on my behalf last night. Cooked veg for the family but when I got round to myself had that CBA attitude on me haha

    think I may have spoke to soon about how easy I am finding it, woke up this morning at 5am absolutely ravenous! Fortunately I like my sleep a lot more than I like food so didn't get out of bed!!

    Eat if you're hungry! An omelette at 5am might have hit the spot.

    I'm keepin up with your progress hun!! Hopefully its all going well! I'm not having that problem yet, through the wk its usually if I get chance to eat lunch I'm so busy running around. The big test will be this wkend. Takeaway, wine and lots and lots of cakes are my vice. If I can get through this wknd I'll b pleased. Keep it up anyway x

    Ooohh yes to both!! Haha I sound like a lush. Please tell me you've got some secret recipe up ya sleeve which means I can have a cheeky few on this diet x that and I like gettin a chiicken and lamb kebab from the local takeaway. Do u think I eat that if I held the naan and sauce and just got the meat and salad. Its only breast meat with tikka seasoning and lamb done on skewers???

    you can have vodka or gin with diet mixer - no carbs!!!! (oops did i really type that - bad influence).and red wine ( a dry one) is about 10 carbs for the bottle. it DOES slow down your weight loss though.
    and kebab is fine :) garlic sauce is ok, just be wary on the salad (sometimes they put sugar on it) and chilli sauce.

    how good is this diet...vodka, gin and kebab!

    I always have doner yummy and plenty garlic sauce.
    yes i have v and diet coke or v and tonic (slimline of course). the citric acid in the mixers may cause stall though, but try it out and if you dont stall..happy days!!!!!
    you will notice a lot of us on here drink a lot. its probably the best diet if you like alcohol!

    Be aware that your loss will almost certainly be slower if you're drinking though - your body uses alcohol as fuel before it uses fat. Atkins recommends not drinking on induction.

    Here in Atkins land toast is more fattening than sausage and egg.

    Welcome to the matrix

    :worthy: Dr Atkins




    That's why I don't drink! Would drive me insane knowing the fat burning had stopped.

    Luckily I hate the taste of most alcohol and the feeling of being drunk! Which makes 'avoid alcohol' very easy for me' to say and vodka etc is definitely better than having a few pints - but avoiding as much as possible and especially for the first two weeks is a really good idea.
