    So i went shopping at the weekend, bought loads of meat, leafy veg and fullfat dairy.

    How strange it felt buying that stuff, having been on SW for a year. i'm quite excited about the bellypork...

    Began the Atkins leg of my weight loss quest yeaterday, sporting a hangover - not ideal, but nothing ever is.

    Already run out of cucumber and spinich...
    Anyone have any quick and easy snack ideas?

    Hi Lorna - welcome!!

    Do you have any chicken? Grill some up and keep it in the fridge for when you feel snacky (especially the first few days... you'll be ravenous, so just eat!). When I start induction, I usually keep a batch of chicken legs or thighs in the fridge, ready to go.

    Salami, pepperoni, cold sliced meat (just watch the labels). Ham slices with cream cheese on them, rolled up. Hard boiled eggs. Omelettes. Cooked prawns. Crispy pork cracklings.

    But try not to "snack" on veggies... you'll use up all your carb allowances! Make sure you are getting enough, but not too many. You'll find soon that your appetite will fall off and you won't be looking for snacks very often anymore.

    Good luck!

    Hi Lorna and welcome

    I would cut the yoghurt to start with, at least for Induction - stick to the list of allowed foods only, and see how you get on :)

    i hope i'll take to this like a duck to water. i love meat and expect to get the hang of it fairly soon.

    Not sure my wallet is very impressed. rice n spuds being so cheap relative to meat.
    However, i'm now able to buy the tasty, fattier, cheaper cuts that i've been avoiding.
    Gonna slow cook a breast of lamb on Wed, belly pork tommorrow mmmmm.
