    Hi there! I'm new to this forum so hope you don't mind me posting!

    I'm planning on starting low carb/atkins on Tuesday, just doing some preparation and meal planning before starting. When looking through the books (I have the rose elliot and atkins) the carb values differ, which one should i follow? And I'm slightly confused about green olives. What is the carb value?

    If someone could help me out with these issues it would be much appreciated :)

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year & welcome to Atkins/Low carbing. I've only followed Atkins so can't advise on the Rose Elliot one... xxx

    Hello and Welcome - if you stick to protein and leafy green veggies you don't need to worry too much about carb counting :)

    Hi Tanya and welcome love, I'd stick to one source or it get's confusing, I'm not sure why carb counts vary from different sources but they do. I'd stick to the atkins one myself.
