Nutty's Journey to Comfort.

Hi everyone,

I have decided to try the Atkins way to lose weight. Previously i have done lots of diets and lost -gained - lost-gained.
Im tired of always fighting my weight. I know I am carb sensitive so thought I would give this ago and keep a diary at the same time to help motivate me. Ive bought the New Atkins new you book and am planning on reading it this week and starting prepared on monday. This so i can get my head around induction and plan my food for the week. So looking forward to following everyones journey and hopefully sharing my own success.

So reading the book and getting my head around induction. The first thing i need to do, is to get organised and that will be a feat in itself.
Years ago i tried atkins and gave up after a short time due to headaches and a boring diet. Variety I think is the answer !! and organisation. Today i will plan a weeks food and go shopping and ensure i have everything i need to suceed in the first week.:)

prep is absolutely the key, hun. There's a low carb shopping list in the stickies - it's everything we've all found that is low in carbs :)


This is for life
Hi Nutty. Good to see your diary and welcome:D
Planning is indeed key and if you can manage the first week or two - it's not just easier it's yummy:). Never would have thought i would turn into MORE of a foodie while on a diet losing weight;) i can be unbearably smug while enjoying my double cream:D

So think of this as way of eating - and enjoy:)
Morning Nutty... hope its going well? :)

Eat if hungry - otherwise dont worry about it. The key is to eat regularly and whenever hungry. Good luck for tomorrow
