    I'm going to start posting what i eat and my exercise to help me stay on track.

    WENS
    Breakfast:
    4 rashers of bacon

    Lunch:
    2 scrambled eggs with 30g cheddar cheese
    Fruit tea
    Lettuce and cucumber

    Dinner:
    2 burgers
    Mushrooms and leeks

    Snacks:
    Tin of tuna
    Sugar free jelly
    Swimming pool full of water. :D
    Oh and a MiM for my fibre intake.

    I don't know if the fruit tea is okay or not but the carbs are 0.7g per 250mls infused.

    Exercise:Hmm, it's raining out side so it's going to be the wii. I'll go on for half an hour as i'm only going to do yoga and muscle groups today. They don't usually take very long.

    That's a meagre breakfast Marysu.

    as for the teas, just add in the carbs to your daily carb count love.

    It means small love, I'd be starving in 10 minutes if that's all I had for breakfast.

    I'm not really a big breakfast eater. I usually have it at 11am after school run, cleaning etc.

    Them cupcakes are in the oven and the smell is driving me nuts, so i'm going to make a little crustless cheese cake for myself to get my fix. :)

    You're lucky FaF, i love (loved) them.

    FRI
    Breakfast:
    4 rashers
    30g cracker barrel cheese

    Lunch:
    Tuna mayo
    Leafy salad

    Dinner:
    2 gammon steaks
    Broccoli
    Crustless cheese cake

    Other:
    Water

    Exercise: 1hr wii fit, gardening later in the day:(

    I'm feeling pretty crappy today, all sluggish and drained, been like this since tuesday. I'm worried i'm not getting enough fat because i'm still grilling burgers and rashers etc. I know i shouldn't but i can't abide grease on my food. I'm the girl who wipes grease off her sausage in the takeaway with a napkin. Will the mayo, cream and cheese work as well in giving me that fat i need or is that the wrong way of getting it into me? Any advice from anyone on this would be really really helpful. I'm also drinking loads of water so that can't be it. Can't seem to get back in ketosis either. :(

    I grill most things too, Marysu, I just prefer the taste.

    Not sure about the sluggishness, you could be on your way into ketosis? Which always feels rough. Are you eating enough veggies & getting enough fibre?

    Defintely getting enough of both fibre and water. I try have a mim everyday because that is full of fibre. Also eating alot of broccoli, thats why i just can't understand it. It's the first time i've encountered this doing atkins. I'm going to eat a bit for cheese and cream than i had planned for, just for today. Hopefully that might just help. Looking at my food diary, there's nearly more protein than fat. I think it's supposed to be the other way round. Also going to have a korean ginseng now to perk me up before i fall asleep. xXx
