Hi there! I am new to the site and to Atkins!
I just finished reading The Atkins Essentials book over the weekend. I plan on reading the original book but wanted to jump into it so I read the Essentials first!
Today is Day 1 of induction for me. Reading the book and stuff online has given my brain an overload, I must admit.
I really dont want to fail at this. I do have some questions that I hope some of you can help me with!
I already take a mulitvitamin- Womens one a day. I looked last night and it does have Iron in it. What is the reason that your multi vitamin not have Iron? Should I continue with these since I've always taken them or should I stop due to the Iron?
Salad Dressings! Yikes. I love salad but its the dressings that worry me! Would using something like the Ranch Mix packets for dressing and dip be okay if I use the sour cream? Or what are some of your favorite dressings?
Water! I love water..and I gave up soda and coffee months ago so I am good there. I do however get tired of plain water! Are the sugar free powders you add to bottle watered that bad? I think I could limit myself to one a day.
Gum- as long as its sugar free with Xylitol...this is okay?
and finally..do any of you use a Iphone App or website to help track progress while you are getting the hang of it?
Thanks so much for your help and I look forward to getting to know you!
