    Hi & welcome. Forget the onions at this stage, far too high. Use spring onions/scallions instead (they're less than a 1/3 of the carbs!) Cut out the diet coke just for now. Drink loads of water &, as Jim would say, eat some greens hun!

    Good luck :D

    Yup, what Cinta said. The citric acid in fizzy drinks can slow weight loss. You count all carbs from packaging and should be having about 25 a day. There's a really good sticky about starting Atkins that's worth a read with lots of valuable info.

    Oops think your right about the 20 not 25. I usually end up having 25 and works for me. 20 is what you should have on induction. Sorry.

    Yep 20 is right. Check Jim's sticky above 'so you're thinking of stating Atkins'. Lots of info. He's always here for lots of advice too, we're a friendly bunch :D

    Hi Natalie, why no fat love. It's good for you, Atkins says you have to eat fat to burn fat. :)

    Welcome.

    Hiya Nat! :wave_cry: Hope you do really well on Atkins, isn't it great to be eating again? :D Do you have the book yet? It's really handy to refer to. Best of luck for this week - do it properly and you'll be fine.

    I agree about the onions - tiny amounts only - I only put them in my pate now for flavour, also red pepper is highish, but if you counted it then that's fine.
