Ok. I asked for advice on starting Atkins a while ago. I've since bought the book and read it about 3 times. I've read all through the threads with Atkins on here and checked out the recommended websites. I have about 100 printed sheets from the internet including recipies etc. So I think I'm ready. Induction, meat, eggs and some cheese not too much. Loads of water and maybe just one can of diet coke a day. Some veggies. So a few q's Flavoured rotissery chicken from supermarket. Is this ok to eat,I do like the barbeque one. When I have my little salad, do I put full fat dressing on it in the induction phase? and is the blue cheese dressing ok? Do I eat three meals a day only? Or can I have a meaty snack if I get hungry? I also thought since all your sucess stories were what triggered me in to trying this diet I would give you updates to see how I'm doing as without your info I wouldn't know where to start. Shelley, going in to unknown territory!
