    hi everyone, this is my third day on atkins, maybe not a good idea to start whilst having a headcold! lol. i thought headaches were dragging out and not budging with painkillers, after reading some posts here maybe due to atkins flu? never mind, will endure. i am 45yrs old, cant remember not being on some kind of diet :( my starting weight as of sunday morning is OMG 18st 5lbs! :eek: fingers crossed this is the best decision i will ever make! X

    Don't listen to them, for the right people this is the best diet ever. I used the original '72 version of the book, it was stricter in many ways.

    I don't tell people I'm on Atkins, funny how Low Carb is OK but Atkins is a killer.

    Welcome!

    I say low carb too or, alternatively, that I avoid sugar. People then admire your 'willpower' ha ha.

    Hi and welcome,

    I dont tell anyone I'm on Atkins had too many bad reactions from people who dont understand. Now I just tell people carbs dont agree with me and everyone seems happy with that.

    Everyone is so supportive on here so dont be afraid to ask any questions you may have and I'm sure you'll do well x
