    I'm on a combination of meal replacement diet, lipotrim and exante in the week and atkins on the weekend. I fancy something sweet, what can I eat? Can I have sugar free jelly?, what else? also any meals that are easy and tasty?

    Thanks in advance x:D

    I eat sugar free jelly every couple of days and it's not done me any harm, but I'm sure Jim will tell you if it's naughty. The Atkins bars are quite nice for a chocolate fix but for some people they do slow down weight loss quite a bit.

    Thanks saddlebag, i've bought some sugar free jelly but scared to eat just incase it knocks me out of ketosis. Think i'll wait to check with Jim, it's not in the book as far as i'm aware.

    My 90s version of the book recommends sugar free jelly for a dessert and says its allowed on induction. The low cal jellies do contain citric acid though which some people find can stall or slow their loss. If you have a sweet tooth, I'd say its worth experimenting to find out.

    If later versions of the book do not recommend sugar free jelly I'd imagine that's because they're trying to flog their own branded products...

    Thanks all, i've just made up a batch. If i don't eat something sweet I can see me heading for some dairy milk, so guess it's best to stick to the sugar free jelly. I also heard you can have cornish cream icecream as its made with fresh cream, not sure about that, any ideas?

    When I wanted something sweet on Atkins, I used to mix some cream cheese (full fat) with sweetener - tastes like cheesecake topping!! :cool:

    I only need sugar fixes when its totm and I eat the bars. I also have sugar free jelly just for something to do! neither have stalled me, but then I drink best part of a bottle of wine every day and thats not stalled me yet either.
