    Hi I have been on the Atkins for over a week now and I am really enjoying it, I find the postings really helpful, especially the meal plans. Does anyone know if this diet is ok with cholestrol as mine is a bit over.

    Hi there. I am starting today, it is meant to be great for colesterol, just be careful with saturated fats I think. How have you found the plan?

    I Have found it ok, the first few days are the worse but keep thinking about day 4 or 5 because that really made a difference to me, I find I have so much more energy and feel so much better in myself. Keep us on track how you are doing. Good Luck:D

    Hi Pauline and welcome. One of the reasons I started Atkins was because I had very high cholesterol, it's now normal and in fact was normal after about 3 months on Atkins.

    Hi FGS you joining us as well.

    Why don't you both start diary threads. :)
