Atkins Low Carbohydrate Diet - Day 1

I began the Atkins diet 'Induction' stage this morning, after having partially started it yesterday. I had enough in my refrigerator to get started, but did a modest shopping trip more fully based on Atkins principles today. My initial aim is to reduce my weight from its current 98kg to 70-75kg; for a height of 1m70 that will be a lot more reasonable. I hope also to normalise my blood pressure, currently borderline high. I'll comment briefly here on a weekly basis about my progress.
