First week menus - please comment!

Hi everyone

Because I am still waiting for my Atkins books (think I have bought one of everything there is!) to arrive - I have been cobbling together my information from various websites and my dim distant memory from when I did atkins 6 years ago. Before I go much further I wondered if some kind creature would have a look at what I have been eating and just make sure it all looks about right?

nb: I got a bit busy/lazy at the weekend so sat and sun are more nibble/grazing days and therefore my veg intake was a bit pants - will try harder next weekend not to let things slip.

Anyway here we go:

If anyone can be bothered to comment or pass on any suggestions I would be really grateful. I am aware I have been a little adaptive with the induction rules (i.e. wine and nuts) but I have also been working a crazy amount of hours this week and a few blips felt almost "necessary" to get me through....

Many thanks
Laura

i can second the bar thing, i was losing great until i introduced these into my diet & this week only lost 1lb.
I`m no giving up the bars, although the convience of them was great.
Before i was eating sero bars without them affecting weight loss.
Might be something to consider, i too don`t fancy egg or meat in the morn.

Hi and thanks to Buffydog and Dancing for your help with this.

I wouldn't usually use the bars as much as I have done this past week but working two jobs they have been convenient as I don't have access to cooking facilities as often as I would like ... having said that - your suggestions for having things cold is a good one and I will certainly try to be more organised in future to have things like this to hand for breakfasts.

I didn't realise that the bars have stalled people's weightloss either - rather naively I thought that if Atkins endorsed them for induction then they would be a "safe" option... thanks for the heads up on this. I will get some sero bars instead for days when my hair being reasonable and getting out of the house on time, has taken precedence to preparing my breakfast/lunch!!!

Thanks again for your input oh wise ones! where would this section of the forum be without you?
Love Laura
