    i don't only have three meals a day ... I tend to pick ... think I must be the only one though ?

    Today
    B protein shake
    L tofu pieces, 97% sausage, half avocado, fried halloumi cheese (yum) and loads of salad.
    D will prob be chicken breast and salad and brocolli

    I'm snacking on cheese now (think I have more than I should but what's a few saturated fats in the big scheme of things)
    Also had a water flavouring ice lolly and have just made some jelly ready for dessert

    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

    Edited my dinner ... decided to make a bit of effort so I grilled my chicken breast then cut into chunks and added it to a sauce of:
    mushrooms, garlic, sour cream, cream cheese with herbs and garlic, a bit of mustard, cumin, black pepper and splash of kikkoman soy sauce, oregano and a little marigold vege bouillon.

    Very nice
    I've already had some jelly and cream (blackcurrant jelly today) and will have some more later.

    Later still I will probably have the other chicken breast on its own

    only kidding ive done it before and i know it does. all diets work if followed properly after all.

    Hi,

    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!
