    Is there any low carb friendly breakfast cereals that you can buy and also ready meals/snacks
    I was wondering if I was stranded in town etc what I could buy
    Also I cannot find any referance to milk at all. Im now officially weaning myself off diet pepsi and have been having tea with a sweetner plus semi milk is this ok
    I think I should also buy a muli vitamin is there any in particular you can have?
    As ive read it you can have 20g carbs a day and you can find the info on carbs on per unit or 100g of packaging so as long as I still to 20g a day I should be ok?
    If I post up today later what ive eaten would someone please give me feedback
    and yes im a massive pain in the bum but with CD everything just put in front of you
    Also if I do have to go to a friends for dinner and go over my carbs for the day what will happen? will I just not loose as much that week?
    How important is exercise?
    Thanks again

    You're not being a pain. We all ask lots of questions too, so ask as many as you want.

    I will let Jim or someone else with Atkins knowledge to answer the cereal, milk etc questions.

    On the vitamins, the Neris & India's Idiot Proof Book says to take a good multivitamin without iron. Apparently too much iron can make you constipated. I got a multivit without iron in Tesco, but you can buy more espensive ones in health food stores, which I think are easier to absorb. They also say to take Vit B complex and Vit C if you smoke. These are the basic ones.

    Sorry I wasn't clear. B6 complex is for everyone. It was only vit C if you smoke.

    hi there , right milk is a big nono on atkins as its quite high in carbs , what i do is mix a little cream with water and leave it in the fridge , quite ok really in both tea and coffee.
    lettuce is about 2 gr carbs per 100g so for a whole lettuce you are probably looking at about 10 -15 gr per head depending on its weight.
    the dressing is great so low carb its practically without carbs per tbsp (think its 1.5 per 100ml.
    baby bells are great as a ready snack and hardly any carbs at all dep on which one you have, try to not have too much cheese as it can stall some , but you do need the fat so its best to see how you get along.
    the sugar free jelly is one of my favs but i have to watch as i stall so easily and dont know what is a prob for me (sweetner can be a culprit)
    tea should really be decaf although most have no prob with it.

    right :D so not all bad then :D:D:D
    i would suggest more protein and fat as you really need them both for low carb to work effectively .
    have a look at the what are we eating thread for an idea of what we all eat , as i said everyone is different and you need to tweak the extras such as jelly and bars ect to a level that works for you .
    hope this random ramble helps xxx
    sue xxx
    oh and welcome to the nut house :0)

    Sukie and Sarah have pretty much answered that.

    I don't know of any low carb cereal I'm afraid, they are all grains or nuts so by definition they are carby.

    For snacks or quick meals on the run I'd go for pepperoni sticks and pork scratchings. Tesco do some very low carb mini meat balls I've seen.

    Hi there,
    If I am stranded in town I tend to buy
    cooked chicken from deli counters or the GRABIT sticks,
    mini snack packs of prawns with marierose dipping sauce,
    pepperami or polish kabanos sausage
    Coleslaw but only if its low carb,
    packet of cold meat
    pork scratchings or pork crunch
    hope this helps
    peachy

    There is also something called bacon bites I think? That seemed to be quite low carb as well.

    You need to really check the carb counts of everything you buy. I don't know about the matteson's, but Tesco do a Toulouse sausage that is 100% meat. These are very low carb.

    If I am stranded in town and need something to eat I tend to go for the following.. find a boots and get an atkins bar.. find a mcd's or burger king, order a double cheeseburger type thing w/ no ketchup and then eat just the burgers/cheese/onions.. leave the bun. You do get some odd looks though. lol. xx
