    When you realise that most of your normal foods are probably high carb then it makes sense that cutting carbs naturally lowers your calorie intake. So, you need to up the calories a bit just so you are not hungry. Does that help? Carby food is just so calorific if you think about it. :)

    Good luck. Surviving without bread can be done, it won't happen overnight but you will get used to it, just give it time. Have a read of the 'So your thinking of starting Atkins' thread in the stickies.

    Good luck all newcomers - give atkins a chance and follow the rules to the letter initially. The cravings do disappear and you can lose weight when eating great food and not being hungry!

    :D

    Welcome and good luck! Yes, do read the stickies and also buy a copy of one of the Atkins books - the most recent one is called A New You. Read it from cover to cover and then later dip in and out of it when necessary. Also visit the Atkins Community site, very useful information and tips.

    And of course - keep reading and posting here!
