    Hi please can i join you guys??

    Well after much deliberating about which diet to start, i've gone from slim fast to ww, but have now decided the way to go is low carb!:D So I started yesterday and all is well so far. I am not following atkins strictly i.e counting strictly and weighing veg as the book tells you to, i am just not eating bread, pasta, rice, potatoes and other starchy things, but am eating plenty of veg and protein. Does this sound ok? I've been following it for 1 day so far and feel better already! :)
    I hope I am ok to join you on here. ooh I am looking forward to trying the oopsie rolls!!:p

    Of course KezzyBee!

    I'm not following Atkins either and gatecrashed this place! :D I'm doing low-carb and taking in some of the principles of Atkins and Pig 2 Twig. It's all pretty much the same in my opinion, the basic "rules" I mean.

    Everyone here is so super duper helpful and really lovely people. You'll get on just fine :) I'm new myself (well I joined last year and lurked for ages!) and have found a little home for myself :D

    Well done on your first weeks loss!

    Thanks for all the replies....I am loving this diet so far! Off to make a fry up or grill up should i say:D
    oooh I forgot to ask.....what do you all snack on, do you prepare low carb things in the morning for throughout the day or just maybe grab bits of cheese or raw veg etc?

    You can do yeah. Or cold meats, pepporami... eggs. To be honest though when you hit ketosis most people don't need a snack.

    hi and welcome. sugar free jelly gets a mixed reaction. it can stall some people. i had it on my first week but still lost weight.
    also go easy on the cheese it stalls many people.
    try snacking on pepperami's, pork scratchings, cold sausages and bacon
    and drink lots of water. at least 2lts a day
