    I haven't posted on here for a while as not focussed. After having to give up cd i tried ww and seemed to eat everything and anything. I have been really down about it and dh is probably sick of me moaning.

    I decided to try the atkins and have been on it since last thursday.

    Felling ok and got into ketosis.

    Hope everyone on here is well

    Hi Dawn
    sorry that you had to give up CD - I imagine going from CD to WW is very difficult as you have to think and count all your food at WW and with CD you can just "forget" about food for a while?
    I hope that Atkins works out for you - it can be very successful and as you need only to lose one stone it should get you there.
    Stay positive

    Dawn, I've known people lose really well on Atkins, and others who can't stick to it at all, just depends if it suits you I suppose. Good luck with it, and well done for stamping on things quickly.

    Hi Dawn

    Just dropping a note to say, I did Atkins for about 4 months and lost over 3 stone so really good luck with it. If you choose the healthy options you feel great :D

    Keep posting and let us know how you get on...

    Hi Dawn

    When I was doing Atkins I was working at Trebor Bassett in Maidstone and they had an old fashion canteen and stopped for every break imaginable - breakfast, mid-morning, lunch, afternoon tea (I'd never known anything like it).

    Anyway, it made it handy for me because it meant I could have cooked b'fast normally bacon and scrambled egg. They would prepare me a fresh salad and I would have this with either tuna or sausage or cheese/ham/mushroom omlette.

    For dinner I would put a chicken breast in tin foil with balsamic vinegar and oregano and a dash of olive oil and pop that in the oven and once that had been in for 20 mins, I would add a tray of veggies like peppers, red onions, cherry tomatos, mushrooms with a small portion of feta cheese again sprinkled with virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and oregano and basil and they would take 20 mins so would all be cooked together.

    I used to snack on nuts and seeds of all types but I found if you ate enough variety for dinner you didn't really need to snack and I was lucky having 2 meals a day.

    Just some ideas for you which I hope you like - in addition, have you seen the new Jamie Oliver advert at the moment, with cut up butternut squash, chestnuts etc chucked in the oven - I think veggies roasted are lovely. Another nice one is Savoy Cabbage with olive oil, balsamic and seasoning - you can use that as a base for your meat and it's so crisp but moist because of the balsamic and oil you don't need a gravy.

    Good luck - enjoy the diet. My mouth's watering now - can taste the roasted veggies....:D :D :D :D :eek: :eek:
