    Hello all!

    Well here I am again on Atkins! I have been swinging between Weight Watchers and Atkins for 6 Months but realized Atkins is the only way for me. I did Atkins back in 2009 and lost 20 kilos. 2 years later and a baby saw me put 10 kilos back on.
    I now want to lose 20 kilos by December when I go back to Australia for Christmas.

    Looking forward to getting to know you all.

    Day 1

    Breakfast
    3 x scrambled eggs

    Lunch
    Cheese
    Crab sticks with mayo

    Dinner
    Chicken breast with spices
    Salad of lettuce, cucumber and little tomato
    Salad of sweet corn and tuna
    Cheese - bega and brie

    Day 2

    Breakfast
    3 x scrambled eggs with butter

    Lunch
    4 slices salami
    Crab Sticks and mayo
    Cheese - piece of brie
    Diet coke

    Dinner
    Mince
    Sweetcorn Salad
    Broadbean Salad

    Will have to stay away from MIL's salads from now on! Want a good loss this week!

    Hiya Gossip and welcome

    Your menu looks good. Some people stall on diet coke (it's the citric acid), some don't - just keep an eye on it. Ditto cheese.

    Hi gossip girl - be careful with sweetcorn, it's actually banned on atkins as it's very high carb.

    Hi Rosebug - Yes, I know. Unfortunately my MIL prepared it and I had to eat some to be polite. I figure its better than the baguette that was offered to me too but declined :)

    Ladyfelsham - Thanks for the welcome! When I did Atkins last time I lost 25 kilos and drank diet coke and ate more cheese than allowed and still had a good loss every week. I dont want to tempt the opposite though and will cut down.

    I sometimes have salads with a little sweetcorn in - if I'm grabbing something out and can't find without. A little at your MiLs shouldn't be a problem (and definitely better than a baguete!) it's just that someone might read, think it's okay and have a whole can. I used to be addicted to sweetcorn myself, sob. So good choice and all the rest looks fab.

    25 kilos? Amazing!

    Oh a new diary, Hi GG and welcome to our little forum.

    Those crab sticks are not good either, they're more carby than you'd think, mainly starches. see

    Thanks for the info Jim! The ones in Paris are alot less carby.... 5 g of net carbs for 100 grams. I only have a couple so I think it's ok. I will have to avoid them in London when I'm there if they are so carby.
    I read somewhere that you grew up in Germany? I lived in Berlin for 5 years! One of my favourite cities!

    I liked Berlin, I was never stationed there when I was in, but did many a Rugby tour there. I'd love to see it now the wall is down and Germany is reunified.

    Hi all!

    Been busy over the weekend with a poorly baby who had an ear infection. I'm proud to say I only fell off the wagon once and it was kinda planned weeks ago so I didn't feel too bad.
    Now I am sick and not too hungry.

    Breakfast
    Chicken slice and green tea

    Lunch
    Big green salad, 3 slices chicken, tomato, feta and carrot

    Dinner
    2 x boiled eggs with mayo
    Green Salad with balsalmic vingerette

    Didnt eat enough today but will make up for it tomorrow!

    Well just found out that my husband and I are expecting our second child! Our son his only 9 months old so it was all a shock :) we are very happy though :)

    So I am going to continue low carbing but follow the ww approach as i won't make it through the pregnancy without some chocolate. Plus I have read that being in ketosis is very unsafe for baby.

    Thanks for support x
