    This is a great site with info!! And welcome!! Feel free to ask questions but also it is BEST to read the book cause you find find so much more info. Even being on here and other places and being on Atkins before you STILL can find stuff out you didnt know before. Ive done that before!! I love reading it over and over and Im no expert with info!! Have fun!!

    Welcome to this wonderful LC site! You'll find lots of encouragement and friendly advice here. It's very motivating. I recommend going to the Atkins website: http://www.atkins.com for the basic information. Good luck!

    Hi, gerhard. I'm new here myself. I just started looking through the recipes here, and there are lots of them, so I'm hoping to find some good ones.

    There is a little bit of a learning curve when you first start eating low carb, so if you have any questions, ask away. Someone will be able to help you out. Welcome Aboard.

    Welcome Gerhard! Good to have you aboard!
    I am Arlene and Dr Mary Vernon says it best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaquSijXJkQ for me. I used to stand under my plum tree waiting for the fruit to ripen and fall, now I stand near a coconut tree.

    Welcome, Gerhard... as Kim suggested, if you can't get the book, go to the Atkins website! Everything you need to know is there and it's all free.

    The Atkins website has the Phase One/Induction foods list... use that as your shopping guide. If it's on the list, you can have it. It's if not on the list, don't even ask. LOL

    Yes... more water, WALK (it stimulates the bowels), more raw veggies, less cheese, 2 cups black coffee. If you need a fiber supplement or laxative to fix the issue, do it. Then work on preventing it from happening again.
