    is the fact that my cooker is always messy lol! I have a range and they are a b*stard to clean at the best of times but with atkins it is permanently in a greased up state and I hate it - I feel really dirty when people call lol! I envy all of you who have ceramic hobs

    I have a ceramic hob caz & I can promise you it won't look any better!!

    The one thing I hate about Atkins is peoples attitudes to it when they don't have a clue what its REALLY all about!

    :mad: Yes it really annoys me as well Linz! They're quick to tell you it's dangerous and unhealthy but they can't back it up with any sensible comments!

    I love getting into debates on Atkins and I try and convert people as well which I really need to stop doing :8855: Can't think why people have stopped calling round :D

    Agreed! Very true... although I don't tell people i'm doing Atkins (cos I'm not :D) I just say I don't eat bread/pasta etc as it makes me fell pooey :( which is true to be honest!

    Id love a range, and a house big enough for a range. Lol. Pay someone to come in and clean it. Thats what im doing. I need to be careful as almost all oven cleaners set off my asthma so we have decided to get someone in to do it

    My stainless has had all the markings scrubbed off (by me lol!)

    I've been telling people I'm doing low carb and have cut out bread, taties and pasta as it makes me gain weight - which is very true.

    I've had the judgemental look tonight as one of my husbands mates is over tonight and he's told him (big mouth!)

    I wont let anyone criticise me for doing atkins unless they've read the book!
