    Yumm sounds nice - I think coleslaw is allowed if it keeps you within your allowance - although making your own with Mayo would be much better - I'm thinking of doing that but replacing the carrots with courgettes x

    Hi need2bslim- just found your diary. Good luck:)

    Ref insides - suggest plenty of greens and water! Also atkins recommended pysillium husks to keep yourself regular. You can get in h&bs. They worked ok but also recommend you investigate mims (see sticky) - they work well too

    Yes i noticed when I went shopping that there was a difference between the jelly cubes having no added sugar (but carbs) and the sachets of jelly powder which were sugar free (no carbs) X

    Yes definitely. If you keep having sugar free treats then you'll keep wanting them (i tested over the summer;) ) try to minimise!

    Thanks Alpaca. Quite a good day so far. Iv not made and Jelly so hopefully I wont be thinking about sugary stuff again in a couple of days. I also bought some Splenda and Ive had it in a lovely mug of coffee after my dinner there. Really enjoyed it. Iv been pouring 3oz of whipping cream into a jug so i know how much I can have in a day. Am I right in saying its 3 oz? Also last night after I done my diary I ate a sausage, oops although I think that was ok (2.6 carbs).
    B - 2 turkey rashers 1.4g and cheese 0.5g omlette
    L - I was on the road and wondering what to eat. I went into a supermarket and bought a pack of 4 slices of cooked roast beef 0g and a tup of soft cheese 8g!!!!!. I eat the who tub too, it was great!
    S - 1 slice of gammon 0.5g, cup of asparagus soup 3g
    D - grilled chicken breast 0g, salad, mayonaise 0g
    S - 2 sausages 5.2g
    S - chicken tikka plain (no idea how many carbs in this as it is breast with just spices etc on so Im saying zero) with salad 1.3g and sour cream 2.5g

    TOTAL CARBS - 22.4g (this is a bit better than previous days)

    I was really happy today as I bought those Ketostix and it went pink so I must be on the right track. Ive got PMT (positive mental attitude)

    Day 6 weigh in

    Well I couldnt wait till Monday (today is Saturday). Iv lost 2lb so im happy with that. Im hoping to lose another 2lb come Monday. Ive been reassesing my diet and it looks like im eating too much cheese. Its meant to be 3 - 4 oz daily. This equates to half a rub of cream cheese and thick slicde of cheddar. Im gonna have the cheddar in my omlette at breakfast time as im really enjoying that at the moment and use the cream cheese in whatever recipes I try out. Today Im gonna try a couple of different recipes too.

    perhaps something floury could have helped, some milled flax seed or almond flour?

    this recipe has good reviews, not tried it yet though
