    Hiya, ive decided to come over here as this is the only diet I seem to be able to stick at for any length on time. I lost over a stone on it after my first child 8 years ago. After faffing around on various other diets and losing motivation im back for another go.

    Im hoping to lose a stone by the time I go on holiday 6 weeks tomorrow, I think this is acheivable!! Im more of a New High Protein Diet follower though (lost half a stone in 10 days last year but heart wasnt in it) so will probably follow those guidelines rather than Atkins.

    I wanted to ask a few questions.....I socialise regularly which sometimes involves the odd takeaway and trip to the pub. How often is TOO often when drinking alcohol......and whats the best kind of takeaway to get? THanks xxx

    hiya, welcome to the atkins board!!!

    drinking....clear drinks, ie vodka, dry white wine, gine....mixers? sugar free fizzy, slimline tonics.

    Takeaway - foo yung from chinese (egg) kebabs,

    i would allow once a week for both but if your looking to make major losses in weeks then avoid anything that can hinder you xx

    we're here to help (god i sound like asda or something lol) ask anything you want....someone will have the answer x

    You can test whenever you would like but if you've just started I would wait a couple of days for ketosis to kick in x

    Watch out for booze when you are in ketosis. The effect can be like a sledgehammer and if it doesn't floor you it can still make you feel ill.

    Also it can lead to cravings and, sooner than later, a shall we say slackening of 'control'? At the end of a night's drinking those takeaways or leftovers or tempting cupboard treats can seem suddenly ON limits...

    I speak from experience here!!

    Good luck x
