    Hello All :)

    I am currently following Exante, but hope to move onto Atkins...maybe in about a month or 6 weeks time.

    I have been lurking around the Atkins forum for a couple of weeks now, and have read various threads :), just to help prepare me for my transition :)

    I have a copy of Dr Atkins book, that I am reading (quite slowly :eek:)
    I also have a copy of a low carb vegetarian book, by Rose Elliot - there does seem to be a lot of faff in that one though :rolleyes:

    I am not vegetarian, as I do eat fish.... just not meat/chicken.... and love all veggies :)

    Does anyone have any top tips for a non meat eater whilst following the Atkins plan, that would help me get prepared ?
    I dont want to get sick of eating fish, or the same food all the time :eek:

    Many thanks
    Marge
    :)

    Not a veggie but not a huge meat eater either. Quorn chicken, cauliflower with Philly sauce and cheese and chive omelettes are lifesavers. As a vegetarian I think you get an allowance of nuts and pulses too.

    I am happy with Exante meantime Pixar. But I know that I have to start eating again at some point.
    And I have more or less decided that Atkins/low carb is the way for me. :)
    I am just planning ahead ;)

    I seem to have developed a sweet tooth this last 6 months for some reason, always used to have a savoury tooth before.

    Me too and it's a bit baffling. I was never a chocolate freak. I liked it but it was not a trigger food, not at all.

    Now I am craving it and it is awful!

    I think bodies change and tastes change as you get older, some things I eat now I never would have touched as a child and some things I loved as a child just don't do it for me anymore..........weird.

    My parents amaze me.
    When we were kids, we were very rarely allowed sweets, or sweet things, other than fruit.
    Now, all they want to do is eat cake !!:rolleyes:
