I never done Atkin but I have done low carbs. I found eating just salad wth tinned tuna, smoked salmon or tinned sardines at lunchtime worked for me.

I found adjusting your own meals to be easier than faffing around with some of the given recipes.

So if I was cooking chops with mash and veg - I'd just have the chops and veg. Obviously thats abit warm for the moment but you could do it with salad.

Homemade veg soup - I chuck a stock cube with 1.75 pints of water with an onion, carrot, cauliflower and broccoli, boil it up for 40 mins then whizz with the blender. You could also add a tin of tomatoes and any other veg you like.

Spagetti bolognese with cauliflower cheese instead of pasta.

Use large lettuce leaves to wrap your favourite sandwich fillings in.
