    Hello all :)


    After doing exante for 2 weeks I've finally decided to take the plunge and do Atkins! Yay!

    I've decided to set my carb limit a little higher than the recommended induction at 40g per day. I should easily stay in keto with that as Exante products deliver that and more.

    Went food shopping this morning before work, hunting for all the low carb options... its really weird buying a normal pack of phili rather than the light or extra light!!! and full fat cream, never!

    This morning I'm going to start with my porridge. Its been a firm favourite of mine for years, I've missed it like mad, and it fills me up nicely! I checked the carbs on them and I think theres about 15g. I've got some spicy chicken and lettuce for lunch and some chicken and bacon with mushrooms for dinner. Might grab a green pepper and make an "a la king" sauce (garlic, green pepper, onion, nutmeg) with a bit of cream (yay no awful low fat exchange)

    I'm oddly looking forward to it!!! ee :D

    Got my 2litre bottle filled (with the tiniest bit of lemon squash in it) so I'm good to go :)

    breakfast:

    porridge - 16.2 carbs - 2.5 fibre = 13.7g
    cream (50ml) - 1.5g
    2x sweetner - 2g

    snack: mini babybel - traces

    total - 17.2g

    that was the first and possibly last time I will have cream in my porridge... might spend the carbs on milk next time... was a bit thick and sickly

    if someone told me that I would feel full after eating a salad and some chicken, with a cup of tea, I would've told them to wise up!! This diet is amazing :)

    I've noticed that I seem to sleep a lot better with less carbs in my system! And I've never got that horrible hungry bug either.

    Bought some flaxseed this mornin, will see how tolerable these mim's are, could be a potential replacement for my porridge.. hmm. :)
