Heya everyone, i tried and failed the atkins before just because of my rubbish will power, well im here to try again! im going to dig the book out again and have a good read, ive had some shopping delivered today with lots of good "goodies" so im working through the bad stuff to throw/give/eat away.

Is there anything i can have to substitute gravy? i normally have gravy granuals and water, because i love to eat meat, veg with gravy during the cold weather, any help would be greatful!

Thanks xx

I normally just count the carbs into the daily allowance.

U can make a substitute with meat juices etc n thicken with xantham gum. I don't have it often tho so just prefer to leave enough carbs free to use normal. Check the different brands, they vary a bit between them in carbs.

Welcome back. We have xanthum gum but usually just put some wine and cream in with the meat juices instead- makes a great gravy:D

Tesco's own make beef gravy granules aren't too bad, carb wise.

Alternatively you could use meat stock with the xanthan, ie you can buy them stock pot things :)

While doing Induction, if you feel hungry - eat!

Seriously, make sure you have lots of snacky food - salami, cheese, pork scratchings, eggs, etc - and don't be hungry :)
