    Just wanna see if you guys think this looks okay!
    I think you are gonna say I need more veg in there.

    Okay, here goes

    Breakfast
    2 x fried eggs - 1g C
    3 x rashers grilled bacon - 0g C

    Lunch
    Chilli Chicken -3g C
    Ham - 0g C
    Cheese - 0g C
    Mayo - 1g C
    Rocket - 1g C

    Snack
    Ribs from Asda - allowed 6g C in case there was something on there carby

    Dinner
    Tesco Burger - 3g C
    Cheese and Chive Dip - 3g C

    Pudding
    Sugar free jelly - 0.5g C
    Double Cream - 0g C

    Total
    18.5g Carbs

    The reason I have not had more veg is that I didnt like the rocket at lunchtime one bit, and I planned to have red pepper with the dinner but when I looked up on google how many carbs were in it, there was like 10g!!!! Which scared the life outta me so i left it out!
    I dont like green veg....what to do???

    When I first started Atkins I really didn't like much salad veg, or strong tasting veg like rocket. I just stuffed it down me anyway, and now I really like it. Atkins has changed my palette so much, it's not a chore to eat the healthy stuff any more.

    Get or make some low carb salad dressing (Paul Newman brand Italian dressing is practically carb free) and smother your salads until you get to like the taste. Get bland veggies like broccoli, cabbage, leeks or bok choi and then toss them with butter, add salt, pepper, chilli flakes... or stir fry with flavoured oils or add bacon bits. Melt cheese on broc & cauli.

    I wasn't a great veggie eater either, but now I love it. To start with I always drenched the veggies in butter or Mayo.

    10 grams is a large pepper are you counting the net carbs? For a sweet red peeper it 4.05 for 100g. Maybe only eat half of it?? Green peppers are even less 2.94 for 100g, do you like them?

    I used to stuff mine with savoury mince and sprinkle cheese on top nom nom.
