    oh dearrrrrrrr :eek::eek::eek:
    i seem to be having a major problem finding any snacks suitable for atkins on induction
    i have been all over the supermarkets today and everything i have picked up seems to have sodium nitrate, dextrose etc or something or other that i am told you should steer clear from on atkins.
    i have been looking at pork scratchings, pepperami's, mattersons smoked sausage...even chicken slices seem to have sugar added....does anybody have any ideas...coz without any snacks i dont think i could stick to it for long :(:(

    I couldnt have started without scratchings. Check the carb content hun coz as you will find out these things are ok to eat. Be careful with the carbs in processed meats though

    look for the carb content...

    babybels
    scratchings
    pork crunch
    cheese strings
    peperami
    snack meats - german salami's ham,
    oopsie rolls
    MIM's
    1 egg omlette made with a splash of water and add cheese :D

    there are loads hun you have to be creative ;)

    after a few days you wont feel so hungry and therefore not need to snack x

    so it doesnt matter if they have dextrose and stuff added as i thought we were supposed to steer clear of anything like that
    the mr porkys scratchings i found were only 0.3 carbs per little packet, but they have dextrose and wheatflour in them, it was the same with pepperami's etc
    what brand of scratchings do you guys buy?

    I wouldn't worry too much about the dextrose & wheatflour... its very hard to find anything thats completely 'pure' these days!! The things to watch out for are citric acid & other things that may stall you. xx

    Yes, just look for the carbs, I'd only worry about the other ingredients if you are stalling big time love.
