From LL to CD to Atkins

I completed 3 months of Lighterlife and lost 3 stones. I could not psychically take the feeling of hunger and not eating anymore. So I switched to the Cambridge diet and after having one 200 calorie meal and 3packs for 2weeks. Obviously I've still been dying of hunger!

I've now switched to Atkins, lets hope I actually keep to this now.
I want to be settled into a routine. I have 3 more stones to lose.

I've had my first atkins brekkie. Omelette and Salmon. Yum. Best of all I'm not starving with hunger

Hello! wow what a loss you must feel great. I've switched from cambridge last wednesday but I was on the 1000cal option but only for a few days was doing ss before that for 3 weeks. I have to say that the scales have moved very fast this first week and it's not over yet so i've 2lbs down since last wednesday and i'm pleased with that. It is nice on atkins far more choice but still not easy! yet easier then cambridge!!! Good luck and I hope it all goes well for you
Thanks Jella and the same to you love.
Hi everyone!

Thanks for the welcome.

Hi Jim :wavey:Apparently you are the Atkins guru round here:) I purchased a book a couple days ago, so it should be there when I get home from work.

Just a quick question, can you have sugarfree jelly and cream in the induction? I might buy some for tonight

Thanks x
Sugar free jelly & a little cream is fine & a firm favourite around here!
Oh great, thanks! :D I've just realised I actually have to make the jelly and can't buy it ready made. Doh! Desert for tomorrow me thinks:)
LOL, That made me laugh love. Enjoy.

Bad girl warning...
You can get little individual pots of made up jelly, Rowntrees and another make I can't remember at the moment who do slightly 'classier'/grown up flavours like apple & blueberry. They're handy to have in the fridge for a sugar crave emergency.

:giggle:I ended having it yesterday before my actual dinner. It was yummy :eating: I think I'm the only person who has desert before dinner:p

I've stepped on the scales after two days and I've lost 1 and a half pounds. hmm I like this diet :) It definately helps with my concentration at work, I couldn't think before when I was constantly hungry.
It is nice to be able to eat isn't it love.
