Thank you for the warm welcome Tisha. Its a shame that Holland is so far behind the other countries. I know that in Sweden, Low Carb is very popular. Maybe soon. I did find the Carbquik and Dreamfields pasta on www.dieetwebshop.nl/ Its a shame its still pretty expensive, but good for treats, I guess. They are considered "frankenfoods" and some people can tolerate them and some cannot.

I've heard of many people having great success with Low Carb and diabetes. Definitely worth researching for yourself.

I've been low carbing for five years, but since moving to NL I've found it more difficult. Too many yummy foods that I've missed are so tempting. Its time to get back to it and get serious about following the plan again. I have gained back about eight pounds since moving here, and I feel so awful when I'm not on plan. I have no health problems, luckily.

Unfortunately, meats cost more here and I'm on a lower budget so its hard to plan out meals and stay in budget too.

I did just pick up 700g chicken at Albert Hein for 4 euro. We are barbecuing tonight. Tomorrow I am making Hamburgers with Oopsie buns.

I live in a small town west of Rotterdam.

Low Carb since 2007. Lost 60lbs and kept it off. Starting a new goal to lose an additional 30lbs. My ticker is in pounds not kilos.

Hiya,
I'm preparing to start low carb.. just busy eating out my pantry as my budget is low and can't afford to throw away stuf.. where are you from??..
Never heard of carb quick & dreamfields??
but on SP there are alot of teams with recipe's to make everything from own products if can't find stuf...
Holland is alway's years behind other countries products because of the law it has to go years in another country before they will give it a go....
But im a diabetic and im scared of the complications so ive been researching low carbs and Gl which is simular... so im nearly done .. and hope to begin seriously this coming week..
I actually already eat often low but i wanna follow a week advice from a member i met here who is a nurse and very educated in the low carbs...
I dont use this team really as its not active at all... i can invite you to other teams where its very encouraging and supportive, do you have any problems with your health??
anyway i'm babbling on .. welcome to SP and enjoy

Does anyone else follow the low carb diet (Atkins)? What are your favorite products other than meat and cheese? Are there any grocery stores that sell Carbquick and Dreamfields pasta here?
