    Hi all,

    I've jumped ship from the Exante forum and come to join you lovely people here. I thought Exante was great but I go out alot and it was just a bit too unforgiving of my lifestyle. So I bought the New Atkins for a new you book and started on thursday.
    I did the original Atkins plan back when I was at uni and managed to lose 4 stone over the summer holidays.
    I'm off on hols at the end of April and would love to be able to wear a bikini and be proud.
    My goal is to lose around 50lbs between New Year and my holiday. Sounded like a tall order but I'm already 10lbs down. The first 5 thanks to Exante but the other 5 I've lost since thursday.
    That's what I love about Atkins - I'm never hungry or tired and I stay motivated because the weight drops off so quick.
    Also now I'm actually eating again I can start exercising - going back to spinning tonight which should be interesting.
    Good luck to everyone else doing the Atkins x

    Morning!

    Does anyone have any ideas on good foods to have just before exercising? I went to a spin class last night and by the end of the class I was close to passing out. First half hour was fine but I suspect all my energy from the food I had was short lived. I was thinking of taking some mini babybells in my gym bag but thought someone might have some better ideas.
    Weight is still dropping off - now I just need to stop weighing myself daily.

    Just got my coffee spiked with orange juice by some idiot at work who thinks he's funny. Luckily it tasted so disgusting I only had a sip - hopefully it wont take me out of ketosis.

    Not a happy bunny. Any ideas for revenge are welcome..... ;0)

    Hi Fraggle,
    for exercising I can only give you 3 weeks worth of experience & current practice but seems ok

    For lunch time class - I eat half lunch before & half after. So far I have been having 3 artichoke hearts wrapped in parma ham & grilled ahead. Then chicken & salad after

    For early evening class (6.15) - I have a full mim about 4.30-5 with butter & marmite. Need something serious to keep me going at that time of day!

    For whole evening exercise (7-9.30) - I have to have dinner but need to keep it light. Have discovered that Shirataki noodles are perfect for me - filling but not heavy. I tend to have them with prawn, avocado, boursin sauce.

    In all cases I have mini pepperami in my bag - haven't needed to use though.

    Suggest you try a few things out to see what suits you - definitely dont go in hungry!

    :D

    Eye drops in his coffee should keep him busy in the loo for a few hours ;)

    Morning Fraggle, make sure you get the proper shirataki noodles, not the soya ones.
