    I thought that you were allowed unlimited meat and eggs but that you had to limit cheese and salad and veg
    But i see on some other threads on here that people are counting carbs in eggs and bacon etc, what is best to do?
    I was just gonna eat it and not count the carbs in the stuff i thought was unlimited!!:confused::confused::confused:

    I use My Fitness Pal and let that do the figuring out for me. It counts eggs and I'd just look at the packaging for bacon/sausage etc.

    bacon is sometimes processed (additives added which mean it sometimes contains carbs) pure meat, steak, chicken, pork, fish etc are all zero carbs :) and therefore unlimited..

    I got my book off ebay. There is a new version but a lot of us are using the older version as it varies.

    Ive not seen it but i buy a carb free bacon from sainsburys. 16 slices for £2. Not bad i think! Be very careful with sausages as most are very high.

    I am a charity shop fiend (love vintage clothes and hats) I often see the first atkins book in a charity shop for no more than a pound or so.

    i dont count meat or eggs either, nor do i count butter (but then i dont eat much i mainly cook with it.

    i have found carb free food that i stick to as snacks IF i am ever hungry (pepperami, babybel, scratchings, mattesons sausage)

    i do occasionally eat processed foods but it is few and far between
