    Today I was cooking myself a ham omelette for breakfast as part of my Atkins. My dad comes down and tells me that no wonder my weight is the worst in the fam because i'm the only one eating breakfast in the house. Obviously I am very sensitive about my weight so just starting crying. He told me just not to eat breakfast and to wait till lunch....I don't know when he became Dr. Atkins but apparently this works best for him. Do I really need to do that!? I go to the gym after breakfast, I think not eating would kill me. Dammmmnnn it's annoying not having the support I'd like!

    Sharon is so right, do try and eat breakfast - as Jim says it gets the fat burning process off to a great start - and ham omelette sounds fab.

    I'm afraid you might need to block out comments from family and friends for a bit and just focus on following the Atkins guidelines - we're always here to help :)

    It doesn't matter which one of the hundreds of diets you are on. Any health professional knows how important it is to start your body off for the day by nourishing it. It must be awful having to put up with people putting you down, and frustrating at their sheer lack of knowledge. My partner also eats nothing all day, and a meal in the evening, but he has always done this, and it doesn't seem to affect his body. It doesn't make it right though.

    Hi Mag and welcome,breakfast is the most important meal of the day it kickstarts your metabolism for the rest of the day.Also research shows people who have breakfast tend to eat less later in the day.
    You are certainly not overweight now at 11 stone and 5ft 11in and a bmi of 21 5. so don't let anyone undermine your confidence in yourself.

    Sorry guys, not been able to get online for a few days! Thankyou so much for all the comments...actually needed to change my starting weight up to 12 stone sadly (put it all on over summer!) but I have lost 4lbs from that so far so I am just going to ignore comments from people who don't know what they are talking about and carry on following the Atkins guidelines. Coming on the read all of these makes me realise that as long as I have everyone on here I don't need support from anyone else- Thanks! :)
