    Hiii can I join? I'm on day one of my Atkins! :) today iv been grazing on chicken legs and a bit of cheese. (il eat anything for breakfast) no idea what to have for tea maybe an omelete and a protein shake :)

    You can eat meat fats and veggies. Although I'd go with good fats like olive oil rather than bad fats. Stay away from sugar (Inc fruit), grains , pasta potatoes etc. Watch out for sugary veggies though like carrots you can have them but not as much as say broccoli. That's pretty much it! Xx

    Just about to give Atkins a go
    Hi Im on day one of Atkins as well and unsure of what I shoiuld be eating. It seems straightforward untill your thinking of what to eat. So far today Iv had -
    B - grilled Mattisons turkey rashers and a one egg omlette fried in x virgin olive oil
    S- gammon with asda extra special creamy coleslaw (dont think i shouldv had this though)
    L - Curried chicken breast, lettuce, tomato and peppers
    D - Steak with mushrooms and savoy cabbage done in garlic and cream. The mushrooms had soy sauce on them and I dont know if I should have had that either
    S - Green olives and I also boiled a brisket joint which iv been nibbling on

    Iv also had 2 cups of coffee today with sweetner in it. I know I shouldnt but I just cant take it black. If any one is reading this with more experience tell me if this is ok.

    About two stone. I'm aiming for two dress sizes rather than weight.

    Wow you are all imaginative when it comes to eating! I think homemade coleslaw is ok but watch the sugar content in pre bought stuff. And there is really nothing wrong with a bit of sweetener it doesn't effect ketosis unless u eat a lot of it.

    Yesterday I had chicken legs and cheese to munch on all day then had scrambled egg on toast for tea. I ate about 40g of carbs but it's my first day and I thought I'd ease into it! This morning I ate one of them tuna steak packets with olive oil and a hint of tomato or something. I eat whatever I find in the cupboards in a morning haha x

    Glad your loving it! If ur enjoying it u will stay motivated! Best thing to do is set littler goals so that you don't get disheartened. Aim for 1stone and then when u get there you can do the next stone! Once you know you can lose a stone it will make u know you can do the rest too! Xx
