    hi freddy

    and yes the atkins site is great you can download a pdf of all the acceptable foods!
    good luck im new too! the food on this diet was way to yummy for me not to try ... so sick of special k and muller lights lol - much rather have egg & bacon mmm

    good luck - everyone on here is sooo lovely and helpful if you have any questions - someone will be straight back with an answer for you

    Hi and welcome Freddy!
    Woof back off, you are technically spoken for now :8855:
    It's a bit of a madhouse but you'll love it on here - my only complaint is you can't get anything done cos you don't want to leave here in case you miss something lol x :D

    Hiya Freddy & good luck! Have a look in the recipe threads and What Are We Eating Today for menu ideas, I've found them really helpful.
