You haven't looked very far yet then cause there are quite a few of us. I'm from bonnie scotland. There's a forum for UK residents too. Regards

there are lots of people from the U.K. on the Atkins forums at www.atkins.com.
Not sure how many here.

Buckingham here. Just joined as well. Finding it hard to find UK brand foods in the database, but the tracker is really useful.

Don't use cups. The recommendation is to have 20 NET carbs, 12-15 of which are from veggies.
Get a scale (digital if possible) and weigh your foods.

Fatsecret usually has the option to add by grams or ounces.

The "cups" think was an easy way for people to estimate, but it is not very accurate. Atkins now recommends weighing.
