Induction Hi i am going to give atkins a try!

I been looking into atkins and am going to start tomorrow, any advice would be appreciated. How much cream and which type can I have in my coffe per day. Also I'm confused , do I have to stay away from bacon and ham because of the nitrates. Sorry, also which mayonnaise should I buy?

Hi. I've just started too. My advice is to get organised for the first few days. I didn't and it is hard!

Read the sticky - so you are thinking of starting atkins - all the info you need there. Ideally read the book - very useful to understand the whole process.

Most people dont worry about the nitrates
Several full fat mayos ok like helmans - there is a sticky list of brands of food that are ok - take a look

Good luck!

They are at the top of the Atkins page here, the first 7 or 8 threads you can see. One's called "So you're thinking of starting Atkins".

EDIT: Why does that link say it twice?? Weird.

Morning and welcome to you both :)

I use Oak Lane full fat mayo from Tesco - think it's about 0.2g carbs per 100g -but as Katie says, read the sticky on the shopping list, there's lots of ideas there :)
