Hi guys :)

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

I've just started too Newbie (on Monday) and I still feel guilty everytime I get out the butter and oil (and cream and mayo etc!) It does seem to good be to true but it's working already!
