    Hi

    I'm considering doing Atkins......have been doing WW but finding I am falling off the wagon! I've considered Atkins before, and have just read through Jim's posting about starting ATkins.............but can I ask - are Tomatoes acceptable in Induction? I can't see them mentioned and I really don't like many other vegetables!! :sigh:

    thanks

    One of the members here has suggested that i avoid toms, which is a bugger cos they are so versatile. :(

    But if i want this to work I'm gonna have to.

    I have had the odd tomato when I have needed to bump my carbs a bit. I don't think that the odd one now and then hurts but eaten regularly they might stall your loss.

    I sometimes use 1 large or a few cherry toms when making curry, i just make sure i count the carbs and have them as part of my daily allowance.

    Tomatoes are an acceptable food in phase 1 (induction) on the official atkins website.

    Tomatoes were excluded on the older versions of atkins altho the latest version lets you use them. As always you have to figure out what works for you. They were my staller initially - which was a disaster as i adore them! In fact i would have said i couldnt live without them - much like pasta, bread, rice......:eek:
