Our expert says:
The diet you describe is not actually devoid of carbohydrates which are supplied by the fruit. The Atkins diet makes you cut out practically all fruit and also all dairy products and consists only of meat, fish, eggs, cream, mayonnaise, and the very-low-carb vegs like lettuce. Make sure that you have at least 3 helpings of fat-free milk or dairy products a day (your yoghurt and the milk in tea plus another cup) to ensure that you get about 1000 mg of calcium a day - to prevent osteoporosis later in life. Otherwise your diet is not so bad, but also select the leanest meat you can find and cut off all visible fat otherwise your saturated fat intake will be too high and that is harmful to blood cholesterol levels and certain types of cancer.
