    Already I've noticed that eggs are probably the most versatile food in the Atkins diet for me!!

    But how many a day is it safe to have? Any recommendations?

    TIA x

    Hello Dawnie... I don't think there's a limit but it's wise to eat everything in moderation :)

    Yes Di, you're right! I will limit to 3 a day knowing that some days I may have less. They are just too damn useful!! :D

    Thanks

    Yes! I've certainly become to value eggs... I read somewhere that they were nigh on a perfect protein and should be classed as a super food. :)

    I have never ever tried eggs at all (unless they've been baked in a cake.. o dear!) - so I am really looking forward to trying them when I start eating low carb - I BETTER like them or else haha!

    Can I just say, if you don't like them, don't give up on them! I wasn't overly keen on them to begin with but now they are a staple of my diet. I go through phases of eating them prepared a different way. Can't seem to have a mix. I started with omelettes, then fried, then boiled, now backed to omelettes!

    Hi!

    Not too bad thanks. Settled in new job now. Just had another month of not getting anywhere with the diet :(

    Got a day off tomorrow. Planning on really starting again and going for a 4 mile walk!

    How about you?

    A good way to eat eggs, and a very simple breakfast, is ham & egg cups - see my pic in the pictures of food thread x

    I used to bake egg and bacon muffins years ago when I first did Atkins - line muffin tin with ham, crack in an egg, sprinkle with grated cheese. Used to make 2-4! Have couple in morning with some tinned tomatoes/mushrooms - also good to pack up and have cold in the day.

    There's something so clean and fresh tasting about poached eggs.
