im a bit confused with what i can and cannot eat.

be warned, if you're gonna do it, do it properly!!

My friend was doin it and the only thing she did wrong was have milk in her coffee instead of cream and it made it not work!!!!!

I did it for a month and lost 2 stone! I found it easy :) Yummy steak but it's hard to stick to! I found it easy and it didn't give me any side affects due to the fact I cannot eat veg anyway! And am practicallya carnivore anyway!

You can eat eggs they have only 0.007g of carbs and cheese is 0.0g
You are allowed either 10g 50g or 100g of carbs a day depending on how much you want to loose. Tea and coffee is ok aswell aslong as you use sweetners and skimmed or semi skimmed milk.
I have been on and off it since january and have lost nearly 4 stone and i feel great for it.
