dancing i spend more time eating than not at the mo, i am def a grazer so this diet suits me fine...

i always have boiled eggs, snack size cheeses, pepperamis, peanuts etc on hand as i like to nibble all day. my meals tend to be smaller than they would normally be as i am eating lots in between meals.

great asparagus ideas, i love them wrapped in parma ham and griddled then sprinkled with parmesan.

oh and i make up a huge bowl of s/f jelly to snack on. lovely!

thanks for the contributions guys, it really helps xxx

i have just had my raspberry s/f jelly and double cream (2nd bowl today oops...). love it!

feeling quite heavy now, are you sure this diet works lol????
only kidding ive done it before and i know it does. all diets work if followed properly after all.

does anyone else drink diet coke? i know i shouldnt but i cannot resist a small bottle a day... this is one thing i really missed while ss'ing.

thats excellent Dancing, 1st week or not. Bet you're chuffed with that loss, and thats the main thing!!!!

Breakfast: I have an Atkins shake for breakfast during the week and eggs: fried/scrambled/boiled etc with sausages at weekends

Lunch: chicken salad, homemade soups, cheeseburger pie, lowcarb muffins, prawn cocktail, and expensive treat - the smoked salmon/cream cheese things that Tesco do! burgers with cheese melted on, low carb mousakka, shepherd pie topped with a combination of cauliflower and swede.

Dinner: chicken/fish with asparagus, mushrooms, celeriac (nice mashed)

Sometimes: low carb Michelob beer, lowcarb bread, pasta or sweets but sparingly due to side effects and don't want to rely on them. I have lactofree milk in coffee or my Atkins shake ( loved to do this with the tetras on CD and miss it!)

snacks include: baybel, celery with cream cheese, I make the shakes into ice lollies and put nuts in - mmmm.

I make cheese sauce by grating cheese into cream/lactofree milk with a little bit of mayo ( tastes great) I make celeriac dauphinoise like this.

Apart from that - nothing!

oh my god, thats what im having for tea... huge stuffed mushrooms!

this thread is fab.

soraya thanks for the fab insight into a low carb pro! i might get some atkins shakes today so i dont need to cook every morning.

just had my coffee with double cream. it tastes so naughty. ill prob have jelly for breakfast.
lunch will be a salad with either tuna/egg/cheese... or all 3 lol.
tea today is as i mentioned large stuffed mushrooms with a chicken breast.

have a great low carbing day and keep the ideas coming.

I do mine for 21/2 mins. Some times 3. Boil 3 eggs, take one out at 21/2, one at 3, one at 31/2 mins and see what ones you like the best. Plunge each one into cold water when you take it out to stop it cooking. I tend to dry fry my eggs, cos then you get the runny yoke, cooked white (no snot) each time.

Last night for tea we had the asparagus spears wrapped in bacon, large open mushrooms, smeared in pesto, a light sprinkling of chedder and baked for 1/2 hour. ( also fresh pasta ravioli in fresh pesto sauce, but I only had a small serving!)
