Hi Natalie. Tomatoes aren't induction friendly and watch your onions, maybe switch to spring onions? But where are your greens? Jim will be shaking his veg stick at you lol.

Hi Natalie, welcome to the diaries. Re the veg if you have a market near you that you can get to through the day the veg tend to work out cheaper than in supermarkets. I would just second what Lisa said about the toms and onions. I do still use a little bit of onion but I only buy one a week and use a tiny sliver in mince for flavouring you actually don't need that much for the flavour, but other wise I use the spring onions too, alot fewer carbs in them.
Have you got the book? If not I would invest in that. And also if you are unsure of carb counts try an online carb counter or site like my fitness pal where you can put what you want to eat in and it will calculate the carbs for you.They are free online. You will learn the carb content of your favourite foods soon enough so that you can tot them up easily enough for an idea of what you are eating. But other than the toms and onions things looked fine. But I would try to learn to count carbs otherwise either a carb creep might happen or you may actually restrict yourself too far and feel really deprived which is a killer on any diet. Good luck x

Welcome Natalie Ann - I would avoid frozen veg if you can, green leafy fresh veg will help you lose and keep you regular :)

Hi again Natalie. Co ops are always so expensive, those and the Spar shops. What about any farm shops or community projects? They might be around you may just not know about them. There is a place I used to work at, a training centre for people with learning disabilities and they grow veg as well as plants. Great fresh veg, picked that morning and the takings go to dividends for the trainees. There are a few in this area so may well run across other councils across the country. There are also some veg box schemes on the internet, some of which drop off to community centre rather than charge high rates for deliveries, then there's the possibility of doing your weekly shopping online anyway so getting all of your veg with your other produce from one of the bigger supermarkets if they deliver in your area. Con there is the delivery charge and minimum spend, and then there is the fact that you can't pick your use by dates off the shelf hence the prob of going off quick. Like my salad I always go for the longest date at the bottom of the box in asda. Hopefully you can find a solution for you. I must admit I do have a bag of frozen cauli and broccoli in the freezer as they are both low carb and checked that they weren't glazed in anything sugary. But everything else, and broc and caul I get fresh where I can and keep the frozen for emergencies.

Try to eat regularly as well, not eating for long periods can actually stall you. This happened to me when I had a very busy few days and was only eating once a day. Yum to the fridge raiders, I love them. I think they are mainly chicken aren't they so should be fine on induction. Hope things are going well and you've ate more than Fridge raiders today! x

The headaches may be part of ketosis, so watch out for other symptoms, but yeah to keep your body going into ketosis you need to eat the right things regularly. Glad you had the chops. Add the leafy veg as soon as you can to keep you "regular", keep drinking the water and you'll be flying.

Have a lovely Sunday. Weather is great up here x

ok guys messed up big time today, i ended up going so long without any food i got that hot in the sun i had to just eat anything, ended up grabbing a sandwich and sausage roll as i was ready to faint in the heat

my plan was to go for a pub lunch and order a steak with veg or something, anyway things came up and it got later and later, after id picked my son up from my mums and done everything else, i was shaking, felt so sick and just had to eat, just went in and had the food....

anyway after that i felt normal and went to asda and stocked up on veg for rest of week, got broccoli, cauliflower, spring onions, leafy green lettuce bag and some diced swede- unsure if i can have the swede?

so heres to another day tomorrow being 100percent, id already lost 3lbs since thursday so i dont want to upset myself so im gona stay off them until my week is over on thursday

well ill freeze the swede until another time then just in case, and i know where i always go wrong on eating diets, i forget or am too busy to eat and then when it hits me i eat everything in sight, so im going to try and eat 4 small daily meals rather then the two bigger ones

after doing lipotrim love i cant seem to have 3 full meals without feeling really stuffed and sick, so i was thinking like 4 small meals to keep the energy going , that why ive mostly only ben able to have two meals a day

Four little ones, 2 reasonable and two snacks - just eat regularly and you should be fine. I also try to alternate things so eg love my bacon and eggs for brekkie but then love big salad for lunch. Even my snacks i try to alternate crunchy (pork crackling) vs chewy flavour ie pepperami

Have fun:)
