    Diet:
    CD, Atkins, now DC
    Hi
    I'm planning to start my Atkins diet tomorrow. I've done 5 weeks of CD and can't face it anymore. I've done Atkins before, a long time ago, can hardly remember. This time, I'll take it serious.
    First question: Can I eat roast chicken with skin?
    Second question: How much mayonnaise am I allowed per day?

    Please help me out with this. I'll be back later.

    Regards
    Linda

    LOL! You're supposed to eat to skin/fat thats what I love about atkins. Not sure about the limit on mayo- i guess I go on the carb count which isn't high so I have quite a bit. :)

    Hi Linda and welcome. A big yes to chicken skin. Look at the carb count on the nutritional values on your mayo but you can more or less eat as much of it as you need. Hellman's full fat is the best carb-wise I think.

    Chicken skin and pork crackling is the best part of atkins :D And yep, may is fine as long as its full fat, just check the labels to find the lowest carb one :)

    I did Sue yes, the only diet that's ever worked for me frankly, and that's why I'm never going to gain the weight back again.
