    Hi,
    I'm Claire, I'm a mother of 4 and work full time. For health reasons as much as anything I need to lose 4 stone (I have MS).

    I'm looking towards Atkins, but need a really simple menu so that I can fit it around the kids and OH.

    Looking forward to getting to know you all

    Love Claire

    Diet:
    Reductil/Meridia and Xenical
    Eat meat, fish, eggs, cheese (always check the labels) some cheeses have carbs some don't. No starches ie potatoes, pasta, bread.No milk or fruit.

    Keep your carb below 25 mg per day and I guarantee you will lose weight and fairly quickly in the first month, more or less.
    A typical day would look like this:

    Breakfast:
    low carb protein shake or scrambled eggs w/ cheese coffee or tea w/ 35% cream(no carbs in this)

    Lunch:
    Large salad w/ chopped eggs and sliced chicken, cubed cheese w/ low or no carb dressing
    Water

    Snacks:
    Atkins low carb bar

    Dinner:
    Meat of choice
    salad w/ low or no carb dressing or green vegies.

    Snack:
    anything very low carb or atkins bar.

    Drink lots of water and take a multivitamin.
    Read labels for hidden carbs, drinks LOTS of water.
    Talk to Jim in the Atkins forum. He lost well over 100 pounds doiong Atkins and I am sure you can lose weight on low carb too. Good luck.
    Some people may find this boring, but I have always found that sticking to the simple and similar meals each day makes it soooo much easier to follow the plan. Once you become very experienced at watching your carbs, than start to experiment with diff. recipes. Talk to Jim in the Atkins forum, he's lost a lot of weight doing atkins. Good luck.
