    Hi Everyone

    For the last month or so ive been eating this menu or variations on a daily basis.

    Breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled
    1 X 100% beefburger
    1 x rasher of bacon

    Lunch: Chicken Thigh x 2
    Green Salad with tomato

    Dinner: Steak with onionand mushroom
    Salad
    bit of cheese

    I have lost 8lbs which is not the best but i look better and is more than ive done on any other diet.

    I am going out tonight with my girlfriend tonight for drinks is this going to put me back to square one if i have a 2 or 3 spirits with diet mixers ???

    Also I go to the GYM 2-3 Times a week if i work out heavily the next morning do you think this will offset the damage?

    Thanks Guys

    If you stick to clear spirits you should stay in ketosis. Have a great time!

    Clear spirits & diet mixers & you'll stay in ketosis. Watch out tho coz you'll be a cheap date!! ;)

    I would suggest not going to the gym tomorrow but definately keep up with the exercising but give yrself a break after a night out & most of all have a fab evening!! xx

    hows the head? lol


    just a point re: your menu..

    Breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled
    1 X 100% beefburger (is it home made from mince or shop bought, check carbs)
    1 x rasher of bacon

    Lunch: Chicken Thigh x 2
    Green Salad with tomato (tomatoes are a no no in the induction)

    Dinner: Steak with onion and mushroom (onions are a no no too, spring onion/scallion are a good replacement)
    Salad
    bit of cheese

    hope that helps lose an extra lb x

    The new book allows tomatoes & onions (alot of us are on the older book) as long as you count the carbs into yr daily figures you'll be fine.

    I often add onions or tomatoes into a dish & its not affected my loss. x

    According tot he Atkins site you can eat onion and tomato, i even think it says in my book you can. Are these the differences between the new and the old programme?
    Phase 1 Acceptable Food - Atkins.com

    I first started ANA last year and i ate tomatoes and onion, though not in large quanties as they do eat up your 20 a day carb quite quickly.

    Hi Zim

    A wider variety of vegetables have been added into the new book, plus the allowance of caffeine, leaner cuts of meat its been tweaked quite a bit!

    Thats not strictly true Stephen.. 12-15g of carbs should be coming from vegetables otherwise you could eat a whole bar of 90% choc & still be in yr 20g carbs & not eat anything else!!.
