  1. so is this the atkins diet or not? I just purchased this and I thought it was going to more or less tell me what I could eat each day and how much. so far I havent got a clue as to what i am suppose to do. Ive seen you tell other ppl to look at “my menu”. There is my plan, my guides and my activities but no my menu????

    • Hi, Joanne59. Our keto route is similar to Atkins. Your current menu is through the regular low-carbohydrate route, but if you would like a more Atkins-like keto plan, just select “keto” in the “Dietary Needs” section of your profile (lower right area, then generate a new menu through the “My Menus” link on the home page.

  2. I’m new to this program and I’m confused about the breakfast recipes (haven’t looked at other meal recipes). Are these recipes, this potato recipe and the muffin recipes for instance supposed to be combined with other food for breakfast? I can’t find any mention of that with the recipes.

    • Hi, jndsmom, and welcome! Yes, they are often supposed to be combined with other foods. They way to tell is by looking at the “Exchanges per Serving” information at the ends of the recipes, then comparing them to those allotted to you – you can see the latter by clicking on the “Exchange View” button above your menu.

    • Hi, Catherinewea. This recipe is not keto. This program has a non-keto route, and this recipe is intended for that. If you want to make something similar that is keto-appropriate, try zucchini (courgette) intsead of potato.

  3. I’m a diabetic and would like to know if there are recipes for diabetics? Is there other types of cheese that can be used besides goat cheese and other types of delicacies types of cheese? I like cheddar, American white cheese, parmesan cheese, parvoloan cheese and other domestic cheese.

    • Hi, thlust. The Trim Down Club has a few different routes, and one of them is keto. Therefore, there are recipes in our collection to suit various needs. To get a list only of keto recipes, type “keto” in the search box on the “Recipes” home page.
      If you see a non-keto recipe that you want to us, contact me through the comments, and I will provide a way to modify it. For this recipe, you can use three cups of a lower-carbohydrate potato-ish vegetable like cauliflower,, daikon/white radish or even turnip.

  4. Hi, muhlestm. The “1 carb” refers to exchanges, much like those used for diabetics. The following are the approximate nutritional values of exchanes:
    Carb (including starchy vegetables): up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 3 grams of protein
    Protein: up to 7 grams of protein + up to 5 grams of fat
    Fat: up to 5 grams of fat
    Vegetable (non-starchy): up to 5 grams of carbohydrate + up to 2 grams of protein
    Fruit: up to 15 grams of carbohyrates
    Sweet: up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 5 grams of fat

  5. I would really like to eat these potatoes, but from my understanding a potato has around 25 carbs per potato? How is this recipe only 1 carb? I would love to eat them just not sure about the carb intake?

    Thanks
