Hi Lee
Have a read of the stickies at the top of the page - youre thinking of staring atkins - is a good one to start.
Erm as for your lunch lol your not very well prepared.
what have you had for breakfast (another good thread is what are you eating today)
the sausages are likely to be too carby for induction.
Eggs, bacon, mushrooms, cheese, salad with full fat mayo.
The chicken curry may be ok but depends if they put sugar/sauce in it.
no to paninis or bread, no to potatoes, no to pastry. either a fry up with no beans or toast/bread or a cheese salad sound the best options.
I would have a read on this site and get yourself more organised for tomorrow :D

best of luck!

Yes Vicky is spot on - preparation is the key. Read the book, then read it again, and the stickies on thinking of doing Atkins.

There's a lot to get your head around, but it's not complicated, just a different way of eating - and you will love it!

Most are FULL of carbs - it's the yucky husk fillings they put in.

Here's a list of low carb yummies that everyone here has added to (it's on a thread I started on page 4 called "Low carb contest") -


- Debbie & Andrew Garden Herb sausages 0.2 carbs per sausage (pack of 6=1.2 carbs) - Tesco
- Jamie Oliver Italian sausages (Asda, Tesco) - 0.9g for 2 sausages
- Asda extra special pork and chorizo sausages 0.6g carb per 100g (similar to Morrisons, which are lovely too)
- Black Farmer Premium Pork Sausages - 1g carb per 100g so 3 sossies = 2g carbs
- Mattesons smoked turkey sausage - 0 carbs per pack
- Red Dog Chilli Frankfurters 350G - 1g carb per 100g
- Tesco's finest pork chipolata's, £2 for 12 pack, 1.8 carbs per 2 sossa's
- Iceland's own quarter pounders, £2 for 4, 0.5 carbs per burger so 2 per full pack!
- Asda extra special pork sausages with cheese and caramelised onion 3 carbs per 100g (quite high but worth it)


- Alpro soya organic unsweetened 0.1 carbs per 100mls - Tesco online
- Hellmann's real mayonnaise 1.4 carbs per 100mls - Tesco
- Tesco mayonnaise 1.4g per 100g

- Walden Farms whipped peanut spread - 0 carbs - Low Carb Megastore

the cheaper the sossie the worse it is (unless you get bratwurst). ones from a cafe are likely to be carby!

Hiya Lee - call me Susie (or Your Majesty, I don't mind) :D

Not much you can do about bought products hun - even I (who hardly knew where the kitchen was pre-Atkins) make my own lunches and dinners and it makes a huge difference - and tastes much better :)

Try the Hellmans mayo, I use that one a lot.

Hi lee and welcome mate

It's all in the planning on this Lee! I keep some daybreal bars in the cupboard for the times I don't have time for a proper atkins breakfast. I'm lucky that we have a great salad bar at work for lunches, but am occassionally caught out with tempting treats. Cheese and onion tart today but I resisted! Dinners are easier, meat, meat, meat and veg, veg and more veg ;)

And yes we all do really love sausages - in fact, perfect for this weather.

Only the atkins bars lee - or other low carb ones from lowcarbmegastore.com or suchlike.
the best things are sausage and egg muffins or bacon and egg muffins. make a batch keep in the fridge and just eat cold or micro for couple of secs and taadaa - breakfast!


Makes 12 muffins
(per muffin: 1g carb)

Great for on the go, make sure you use low carb sausages, you can also add sauteed mushrooms or onions to the mix.

These muffins can be frozen & reheated in the microwave.

455g sausages
12 large eggs
120ml whipping cream
120ml water
1/4tsp sea salt
170g grated cheddar

Preheat the oven to 180c. Coat a 12 muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

Remove the sausage meat from the casings & crumble the meat into a large frying pan. Cook over a medium heat, stiring to break up the pieces, for 5 mins, or until browned. Divide meat evenly amoung the muffin cups.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, water & salt. Pour over the sausages & top with cheese.

Bake for 20-30 mins until the eggs are cooked thru. Cool slightly & remove from the tins.

I don't use the cereal bars, one just wouldn't be enough.

Brekkie is almost always bacon and eggs - feels naughty, tastes great and it's legal! Otherwise I have an omelette made the day before and heated up, or a soya protein shake.
