    Hi guys!!! as you can see im brand new to this site. i was having a little browse though and everyone seems wonderful so thought i would sign up for advice and support :)

    Well i'm going on holiday in july so the dreaded bikini diet has begun. im hoping to shed around 3 stone (optimistic?! lol) so i started the atkins diet yesterday and am coupling this with 4 gym visits a week (eeek!!!)

    although i have the book, theres a few things im a little confused about. for example, how should i be cooking my meats etc?

    yesterday i had a 2 slices of grilled bacon with 2 fried eggs for breakfast (fried in butter), prawn salad made with lettuce and cucumber with lemon mayo for lunch, and for my evening meal i had lamb chops drizzled with garlic butter with shredded cabbage. i snacked on a pepperami stick and a cup of decaf coffee with cream.

    i felt satisfied all day and the food was yummy... surely this is too good to be true?! i felt i ate too much or cooked my foods wrong??

    all help and advice greatly appreciated!!! :p xox
