    Hi all

    day one for me I have started a low carb way of eating from today. I have tried CD in the past but go back to my old sugar addiction, but to be fare i only did a month of cd, probably did not give it long enough. So I had two boiled eggs for breky and i plan on having stir fry kale with garlic for lunch, not sure about tea yet. wish me luck!!!!

    Hi Bren,

    Day 1 went really well, had a couple of boiled eggs for breakfast, stir fry kale and prawns for lunch and by the time we had got back from bubby's ice hockey it was late so we had a chinese, I had abit of pork yuk sung in lettice leaf, and a couple of dry ribs. I must say i was really tempted by the rice but i managed to resist.

    Today has been the tester, I have to confess i had half a bagel, and i am mad with myself as it wasnt that fresh, but the pull to have carbs this morning was intense, however i did not enjoy it and now feel a little deflated. Going to have salad and chicken for lunch and tea. For my sins though i am going to get my butt on the treadmill in a minute and get rid of that sugar that floating in to my blood. not giving up though, i already know that this is going to be a week of getting in to new habits before it runs smooth. How are you getting on?

    Jot,

    My advise would be to sit down and plan your week of meals and have a ready supply of Atkins legal snacks. If you are anything like me, it makes life so much easier and makes straying "off diet" less likely.

    I like to bulk cook, usually half a dozen hard boiled eggs and a pack of chicken thighs. Both cheap as chips and good to snack on.

    I also always have a few bags of scratchings in stock and a sugar free jelly made up.
