It was!!
And the more herbs you use to flavour the less cals/carbs etc..also always use chilli in everything..it speeds up your metabolism xx

i did atkins a while ago - and the breakfast bit is the hardest to do when ur trying to stay low fat[ish] too

a two egg omelete with veggies like peppers and mushrooms seemed the healthiest although eggs should be limited - i suppose??

sugar free jelly and creme fraiche [dunno about the carbs in it though]

turkey bacon, a grilled massive mushroom and half a grilled tomato [tomatos are quite high in carbs]

gammon slice and a dried fried egg

just a few ideas lol

I used to have a roasted chicken breast on its own!! or left over meat from sunday dinner!!! - not too inventive but i was never really into brekkie when i was on it!!

ur lunch and dinner sounds yummmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Lisa...when you did atkins did you still minus the fibre from the carbs to get net carbs..someone else says we dont in the uk as its already done, but others say you do???/

Sounds yum

I've been told that Cayenne pepper also aids metabolism and tastes yummy - don't know if that info is of any use to you :)

i was told the dietary fibre is taken out of the carb counts put on the packaging in the UK - so what it says on the packet is what the actual carb count is.

maybe you will have to watch out if ur buying stuff that has been imported - i dunno - asda seems to have more and more american stuff on its shelves - i couldnt tell ya if the nutritional values on them have to fall in line with the way the UK sets it out.

Nic when I did the atkins diet i was told that on labels where it says:

Carbs: 9g
(of which sugars) 3.4g

the actual net carbs are the 'of which sugars' ones.

have u looked on the atkins website? all the info you need will be on there. there's quite alot of recipes on there as well
