    lighter life
    Hi everyone!

    I came off lighter life a few months ago after losing nearly 3 stone but have already put 2 back on!!!! Ive decided to try Atkins but have loads of questions, so here goes......................

    What multivitamin should i use as I have heared i need one that has no iron?

    Where can I buy nitrate free bacon, cant find it anywhere!?

    Someone told me Atkins causes constipation?

    Are there any salad dressings available in shops with little or no carbs?

    Is there anything I could have if im craving something sweet like sugar free jelly, but which one?

    And any Top Tips?

    Thanks, Emma:confused:

    Hi everyone!

    I came off lighter life a few months ago after losing nearly 3 stone but have already put 2 back on!!!! Ive decided to try Atkins but have loads of questions, so here goes......................

    What multivitamin should i use as I have heared i need one that has no iron? never heard this.

    Where can I buy nitrate free bacon, cant find it anywhere!? neither can i - just buy normal (check carbs though)

    Someone told me Atkins causes constipation? with some people - but get plenty of greens in and you should be ok.

    Are there any salad dressings available in shops with little or no carbs? cardinis ceaser. mayo is the best :D

    Is there anything I could have if im craving something sweet like sugar free jelly, but which one?any one as long as sugar free

    And any Top Tips? get prepared, have snacks on hand like pork scratchings cheese or boiled eggs or meats ready if you need a nibble. drink loads of water too!!!



    HELLO :D
    have a look at the stickies at th top of the page and the what we are eating today thread.

    maybe not em, it does stall some people, but not many I don't think. The other thing is that it's a tiny amount love.
