    You might want to give the Atkins bars a miss if your on Induction Hun. And, i don't see many veggies in there either. Remember your allowed 3 mugs of green leaf veggies a day love.

    Some are some not, I can't remember which is which to be honest. I know how you feel about the veggies, I felt the same way when I first started, but I love them now. The other thing with the bars, some people felt they were stalling them love.

    I never really used them Sharon, Atkins stuff wasn't freely available when I started all those years ago.

    So I can't remember them really. You have to find out what work for you love, we are all different.

    Hi sharon sounds like you're getting off to a good start. You might like the veggies more now you can fry them and melt butter on them lol. Makes all the difference ;)

    You do need fats - hard to get your head round if you're used to low cal low fat - so get some mayo on that tuna :D

    Hi sharon, re : the bars, i have eaten them from day one ( im on induction ) and found they havent caused me any problems, the ones you pictured are the ones i have and i believe are the only ones that are permitted during the induction phase, the others are allowed in the later phases, like jim said i think some people found they stalled their weight loss, i guess its just trial and error!!
