    Hi everyone, I lost weight with Atkins a few years ago but fell of the wagon. Now I hope to climb on again & join you here.

    Thank you, protein shake ready to take to work in the morning for breakfast (thank goodness for rugby playing kids) and egg Mayo with salad for lunch. Babybel for midmorning snack. Only a 9hr shift so should be fine to make something for dinner when I get home...will get starting weight in the morn too... Do you all monitor measurements too or just dress sizes?? X

    Love your Avatar lucy4loop1. I have some ready meals I can't afford to throw out so must eat them first but also eating low carb for my other meals. I'm just about to have a coffee with cream, for lunch I'll have a 2 egg omelette with cheese & green salad. I'm afraid it's an M&S Liver & Bacon ready meal for dinner. I know it's not ideal but perhaps by next Monday I'll have got it right.

    I'm still reading the book & later I'm thinking of ordering the cheap edition of the latest Gary Taubes book which is due out soon. Has anyone read it?

    Gary Taubes is great. He explains why low carbing works and shows that traditional dieting and nutritional advice over the years has left so many of us overweight and hungry!

    I can remember when we were all advised to eat 'wholemeal' bread, pasta, brown rice, etc as these were 'healthier'. This may well be true but any regular carby foodstuff hits my blood sugar in the worst way and makes me hungry and prone to powerful carb cravings.

    Taubes also shows why 'accepted' wisdom on low-fat eating is skewed. The proof of the Atkins pudding is in the eating and most people do very well on this plan. We tend to eat better quality food than ever before.
