    I've been away for a while, too busy doing OU coursework and to be totally honest i had defected to another forum for a while.:copon:
    I was messing about with the harcombe diet, which is brilliant for some and makes perfect sense to me, i just cant seem to stick to it, it's been 7 months now and i'm a lot more well informed but no slimmer.
    So i decided to stop experimenting with what i can and can't eat, stop trying to analise cravings, and just do Atkins - simples!

    I've been at it for a couple of weeks now, have lost a few lbs but not sure how many - but i do know that my jeans are looser and i seem to have got my portion size under control for the 1st time ever.

    I didn't want to do the induction phase because i'm not into counting the grams of carbohydrate in my salad. I dont really eat processed food so i'm just gonna go for meat, fish, eggs and veg plus a little bit of cheese, yoghurt, cream and peanut butter. try that for a couple of weeks and see how it goes.

    Today's menu:
    breakfast: natural live yoghurt
    Lunch: chorizo 3 egg omlette
    Dinner: mackerel, Pate, cheese, cream cheese, celery, cucumber, pickled onions

    Today's menu

    B: Toasted cinnamon MIM with butter and sugar free maple syrup - fantastic
    L: Chicken salad with mayo
    D: Roast pork with fried, creamed veg (leek celery cauli and cabbage)
    Plus about a litre of freshly ground black coffee and 25g of 85% chock

    i'm off to ibiza for the wkend, flying from brum at 10pm. Very excited- no kids or husband.
    It'll be the first time in nearly 6 years that i get to have a blow out without fear of having to deal with a hangover and small children.

    So i shall be having it large on the last weekend of the season on the party island - yippee

    Problem is having to face temptation as it's all inclusive.

    Anyhow im off.....:bliss:

    well that was fun. i didn't pig out at all - i was moderate in every way It wasn't hard to stick mainly to meat and fish and salad, tho i just had to have a bit of fresh bread and croissants and San Miguel :party0016:

    - back to it now tho - no more pastiseria

    It was warmer in Brum than Ibiza apparently - i hope y'all had bbq's
