Default Favorite Low Carb/No Carb thickeners

Hi! I am fairly new to the Atkin's Diet and my head is spinning with all the low carb product available. I live in Maui and don't have very many options for carb controlled products in my local stores. I want to order stuff from the mainland but I would love some advice from those of you with experience!
I am particularly looking for a thickening agent that will work with soups and sauces.
Any advice or product reviews will be appreciated!

Mahalo,
Sara in Maui

egg yolks is the simplest. you must stir a bit of the hot liquid into beaten yolks, then add the slightly heated mix to the pot and whisk in briskly. (for more specifics, consult your joy of cooking. )

that thunking sound is me hitting my forehead and saying "Duh!" Thank you for the reminder about the egg yolks!

What if I want to put something in a beef stew, I used to use minute tapioca and a slice of bread. I guess tapioca isn't too high in carbs, and I didn't use very much at a time.

What about the gum thickeners? Anyone have any experience with them?
