    hiya

    well i started at 14.5st away last january and managed to get to 11st 10lbs through WW and SW. however after my holiday in sept i never went back to good old pointing and now i weigh 13st again, pretty disappointed in myself more than anything. I rejoined WW in feb and have struggled to lose 5lbs - so here i am

    i loved atkins the first time around - so hoping 2nd time lucky for me:D

    Today i have had:

    Brekkie: 3 x Boiled eggs

    Snack: Prawns

    Lunch: Salad with Bacon and turkey

    Snack:

    Dinner: Pork chop x 2 with broccoli and cauliflower cheese

    Water x 2 litres plus 2 x green tea

    Exercise: 60mins of zumba:D

    not really sure what to eat for snacks yet :-( so any ideas would be fab thanks

    I love celery with cream cheese (mixed with horseradish, seem to be developing an addiction to it!), smoked salmon around cream cheese, MiM's (check out the MiM thread) & chorizo. I also have scratchings, boiled eggs. pepperami & left overs. HTH. x

    Colemans horseradish sauce is the lowest carb I've found at 9.8g per 100ml. A whole pot is 250ml... I worked out that a tablespoon is about 1.5 carbs.x

    Your calories will be higher due to the fat content but thats what you need to burn fat! My first couple of weeks were higher than that but then the hunger dissipates & I worked out I was only having 1000-1500 cals as I just wasn't as hungry.

    Try not to get too hung up on calories, hard I know. x
