    Hi everyone

    Only started Atkins yesterday and I am soooo confused, do I have this right?

    1. Unlimited meat, fish (but beware ham, bacon, sausage as may have carbs/sugar)

    2. Unlimited eggs

    3. 2-3 ounces of cheese do I include the carb content of thsi into my daily 18g allowance

    4. 18g of carbs - now this is where I am confused is thsi just the carbs I get from veg etc or is it from everything ie cheese, sausage etc?

    5. Cream - how much can I have on induction?

    6. Jelly - can I have it or not

    Sorry people I know its a lot but I have trawled websites all weekend but still find it very confusing. Hope you can help

    Cream is fine, providing it's not got sugar in it, but I'd steer clear of the jelly and stuff initially.

    Yes, you can get some very low carb sausages, go back a couple of pages and you'll see a sausage thread. :)

    It does have carbs so long as you count them you can have 3-4 tbsp on induction. Double has less carbs than single and don't have elmlea
