Reading Labels

#1
Not started Atkins yet but I was reading some labels in Tesco earlier. I couldn't believe that there was a carb difference in different brands of cream. Normal Tesco brand was even different to the organic or finest! And even the stock cubes differed so much. I think I will need to go shopping without O/H for a while!

Not sure if there are other veggies on here, but after reading through the 100 Quorn products (online thankfully) the bacon seems reasonably low carb (1.1g for a serving). There is a big difference between the Quorn burgers, pieces and fillets so definitely worth looking at labels and not the info in the new Atkins book!

the books a guide only ALWAYS read the labels and use a carb calculater for veg or use the book as veg dont change much

Yeah definitely will do. Thought the book would be accurate with Quorn as it's a brand, but there are so many different Quorn products, I suppose 'Quorn burger' could refer to 3 different items now!
