    I am also on day 2 of Atkins and have a long way to go! Trying to stay positive. I am going to the Gym this morning (I hate it) first time in years. Menu sounds ok to me but I too am still fully getting my head round it again as been such a long time since I did it.

    As someone helped me there is a great bit in the Atkins sections http://www.minimins.com/atkins-diet/82208-so-youre-thinking-starting-atkins.html

    Good Luck :)

    Welcome to day 2 - keep going:)

    Remember that you might find exercise difficult the first week or so as you get switched from burning carbs to burning fat. Don't beat yourself up, be kind! Once the energy kicks in you will want to get out and do things:D

    Ok I will see how I go, at the moment buzzing because it's all new and ready to go but I'm sure that won't last and I will get Atkins flu but I will survive because this is what I need to do..... Loose weight! Thank you so much for your help advise and support! :)

    Hi. Your menu looks fine. Just keep at it. The atkins flu can be overcome so don't worry too much about it. The weightloss is well worth a few days of not feeling great, as is the feeling when you switch into fat burning. As said above go easy with excersise at first when you get your rush of energy you will feel more able to do more x

    I'm on day 7- Atkins flu kicked in about day 3 or 4 and lasted until yesterday. It's really not so bad and a positive mental attitude is deffo the key! Keep it up and maybe start a diary in the diaries section? Iif you haven't already, lol!)

    Not heard it called Atkins Flu before - great description :) I have killer headache tonight - I know it is sugar withdrawal so jst trying to stick it out drinking water and now off to bed.

    Day 2 water drank, less than 4g carbs - not intentional just what I made up for dinner was very little and a trip to the Gym as well as running 3 businesses - Im shattered LOL

    See you in the morning.

    It's bizzare isn't it - who would have thought that you could lose weight on this - fat and calories! Yet it does work!
