    Sorry, hoping to start Atkins on Monday but wanted to ask some questions that I'm not sure of?

    Clean and Green - I've read this means sugar free? Can you give me examples please?

    Ketosticks - where can I purchase them?

    Fat on meat - chicken skin, fat on a pork chop or whatever.......can they be eaten or not? Cook meat with skin on or not?

    Thank you very much

    I am just starting myself not sure about clean and green thing but I got my sticks from ebay and I think leaving fat and skin on meat is ok.
    Hopefully a more experienced member can help us :)

    Hi Small spoons

    thanks for getting back to me! I've now ordered some Ketostix - do you check in the morning or the evening or both?

    Good luck with your journey

    Hi from one dizzy to another!! :wavey:

    To me lean and green means sticking to induction, only eating veg and proper meat, no proccessed stuff like salami pepperoni etc
    And yes you can have the fat and skin! :)

    Good luck and let us know how you get on x

    Hi & welcome dizzydawnie, I had roast chicken thighs for my evening meal- including the skin, yum!

    Ketostix should be used late in the day to get a truer result.
    Good luck. :)

    Thank you!!

    Yet more questions I am sure as Monday approaches! One quick one tho - can I have anything as long as I track the carbs and count them to ensure I don't go over the daily recommended limit for each stage?

    For example, I love rocket, cucumber, tomatoes - I expect they have carbs in so I have to limit those? Yes?

    Thank you again - I will be spending alot of time trying to get to grips with this, on this board.........I hope I don't annoy too much with my questions!! :D
