    Hi everyone I'm new to atkins. Just finished reading the new book and have taken the plunge starting today! Have tried loads of diets before and always given up so am hoping to stick to this one. Any help or advice is appreciated and I have a feeling I'm going to need all the support I can get x :)

    Hi Athenagold

    I've been here a week now, and the support is fabulous :)

    Stick with it - it's good that you're hitting the 'Atkins flu' early, you'll be out the other side in no time & it feels great :D

    Have to admit, I'm a caffiene addict. No haven't stopped but haven't had as much as usual today so that probably is the cause of the headache! Only had a couple of glasses of pepsi max x

    Thanks everyone, on day 2 haven't really been hungry but have craved bread today, have found I've struggled to actually make my net carbs tally up to 20 I keep hitting around 15g, does anyone else struggle with this?

    You're not eating enough green leaf veggies love. You should be having 3 mugs of chopped green leaf veggies a day.
