    No its a pizza from a recipe on here. I also found it on a site called Lindas low carb menus & recipes web address Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes - Home

    It says its ok for induction so hopefully it is, its lovely.

    I make mine as it shows on Lindas website. The base is made with cream cheese, eggs, parmasan, mozzerella, garlic powder & oregano. Really nice makes quite a big pizza @ 2 net carbs per serving and serves 8 or so it says. Mine serves 4 so 4 net carbs per serving but well worth it!!!

    Will try!!! If you look on the link above click on the recipe tab and look at main dishes, pork lamb & pizza go down to the pizza and the recipe & picture is on the deep dish pizza.

    It looks lush on there thats why I gave it a go. Mine looks nearly the same!!!

    are you drinking lots of water. Noticed any metalic taste in your mouth? The first time i did atkins and got into ketosis it took me around 7 days and an evil bout of atkins+normal flu LOL. Now it takes me about 3 days. Have no fear your menus sounds great you will get in soon x

    The stix don't work for everyone - are you hungry or is your appetite decreased? You don't need to be in ketosis to loose weight, so how do the scales look?

    LVLLT,

    i am drinking approx 5 pints of decaffinated tea and 4 pints of water a day.

    Have felt kind of drained a couple of days but have noticed a slight decrease in my appetite. Not sure what metalic taste is but no real tastes other than the worry of bad breath.

    Rosebug,

    Not sure what the scales say weigh in day is Friday and I have got in the habit due to Slimming World not to weigh before then. Will let you know but I don't feel like I have lost any weight.

    Well we'll just have to see but like I said the stix say no ketosis.:cry:
