    It's day 3, and I'm really trying to be mindful of portion sizes as I think that's often what's derailed me in the past (too much pork fat, too many chicken wings, not listening to when I'm full, etc...)

    This morning, I had 2 fried eggs. I've just now had 2 baked chicken thighs (it's just after 10am). I'm still hungry!

    I don't have my Atkins book anymore (gave it to a friend), but is it okay to "eat until full" in the beginning stages, until ketosis levels out my appetite? I can't remember this part, and I really want to keep myself on plan.

    Suggestions?

    "Eat until full" is indeed the advice.
    If you're hungry, eat! :D

    2 fried eggs is a mini snack, not a breakfast, no wonder you were hungry, and chicken leggs, you should have had them at breakfast as well.

    Yeah, I wouldnt worry about it. I eat little bits and bobs all day.

    But i'd rather eat loads of small meals than 3 large ones.

    If you're hungry, eat something - don't worry about it :D

    Loving this site. Discovered mim's for the first time yesterday and so far I had mim pizza for dinner last night and a cheeky wee mim's roll with my bacon and eggs this morning! I'm in love!

    Aww you guys *blushes*

    I feel the love tonight! lol!

    Probably not going to get on much over the next week, because BT, being the joy that they are, messed up my service and I'm internetless til next weekend.

    Accidently "borrowed" someone elses internet connection tonight to check my email tho.

    So be prepared for my first stupid question post... :)
