Amazingly my new low carb diet has not seem to have cost very much money, apart from the initial outlay in vitamins and super vitamin chromium (apparently burns fat! - can if be true?). I've been doing our shopping for the past 3 weeks from Asda home deliveries. It's been costing me just over £50 a week, which for four of us is fantastic. I do have to buy the odd thing during the week, but usually just a little milk and fruit.
Plus, for those doubters out there - it is all good quality, I am most certainly as guilty as most people for being a food snob, and have been know to refuse to eat anything I think is from a questionable source (shop across the road from us in London in particular). OK, it is not Waitrose or Marks and Spencers' - you have to do the work making the basics in to something yummy - it doesn't already appear looking appealing. But am fairly pleased with it all, and with basing meals around protein, at least for me.
And the amazing diet news is that I've lost 8lb's in one week, which I'm really pleased with. The weird thing is I had lost it a couple of days ago and now stalled. Suspect the stall is down to the accidental wine drinking which occurred on Thursday night. I am not regretting the wine - as I needed it. It cured my monstrous detox headache (yes I know) and it cheered me up no end.
Still I won't be having wine this week - too excited about rapid weight loss to bother.
Any low carb but high protein tips for breakfast would be appreciated though - eggs are losing their appeal, and of course I don't eat meat so running out of options...
