    Hi all,

    Well, nearly a week in and I have lost two pounds. This is great - I only want to lose 5 pounds and there is no rush. I am planning on eating this way for a long time yet!

    I feel so liberated eating this way and am less obsessed with food than I have been in years. I eat tasty, satisfying meals and don't ever feel deprived. Went out for dinner in the week and didn't give a monkey's that I couldn't have chips. I don't seem to be missing carbs at all. Although I am not measuring my carbs, I know I am roughly in the right area and that is fine. I have also discovered the wonders of Carbquik - made 2g low carb cheese scones today which were yummy. Also have the odd slice of low carb bread. Honestly, with all the low carb products and recipes out there I am only sorry I didn't think of this before!

    A very happy bunny! :D

    Yep!

    You find yourself thinking, why didn't I do this years back?

    It's great. Better late than never, eh?

    Completely agree Girlygirl!

    Cherryade, I get the stuff from Atkins Product, bar | Low Carb Megastore, Carbohydrate Diet, shopping, chocolate, diet, food. The bake mix is called carbquik. They also do their own fresh baked bread which is pretty good. (Small slices, but I don't find that a problem now - can fill it up with protein or just have an open sandwich.) I am expecting a big delivery from them next week - will let keep you updated as I try new things!

    I use that site too. I found online sources of recipes for fake bake mix - faux atkins bake mix! - basically clone recipes of expensive pre-mixed brands - and the clones work very well.

    Likewise low carb bread which I make at home. My fave recipe by far is the one I found on low carb in the uk. I make it regularly and whether you do it by hand or in a bread machine it's great,

    A word of caution, however - for people in Induction bread, scones etc are not allowed, not even the low carb versions.
