    I reckon it could be down to the pork belly. I have tried cooking the stuff, but just can't get it anything like crispy. It's all rubbery when I do it, how do you do yours?
    How's the fast day going? Mine's nearly over - hurrah!

    Morning all, catching up after the weekend.
    @ smiley it was the first time I cooked pork belly. I sprinkled the fat with salt and left it for bout 4 hours, apparently that draws water out. I rubbed dry and put in the oven at 200 for 30 mins, reduced oven to 180 and cooked for another 2 hrs. Uppped the heat to 220 for last half hour. It was really crispy.

    Last week I went by the 1972 atkins version where you count all carbs, including the fibre. I keep to under 20 carbs each day, except for a couple of glasses of wine on Fri night. I actually didn't find it too hard. On Fri I did a fast day, this was mostly due to the fact I wasn't really hungry.....it was not a problem, although I did have some wine so I didn't keep to 500 cals, more like 800. I think I will do the 1972 again this week as I was not tempted last week, probably the first week I have kept properly to atkins since the new year. I don't know if that is down to the carbs or a better mindset.
    I will update food later.
    Have a good day.

    Well done, sammy - being in the right place mentally is crucial IMO, and sounds like you are

    Have you weighed at all, or are you trying to stay off the scales for a while?

    @scrumbles, I haven't weighed yet, I plan on waiting another week or maybe til the end of the month. I have found in the last few weeks what the scales says affects my eating. If I see a good loss, I relax the eating....if I see no loss I decide I will start again after the weekend! I know that when I am in ketosis for a few weeks I don't feel the tug to eat carbs when I see them.

    Food for today
    B 3 egg omlette with cheese
    L tuna mayo salad
    D beef stew with cauliflour mash.

    Total carbs for the day 16.

    Hi all, I haven't been on here in a while, my dad passed away a month ago after a short illness. All dieting went out the window, lots of comfort food, mostly carbs. I did try to do ww so I could eat carbs but that just got the cravings going and I couldn't keep to it, so back to atkins again.
    When I did atkins properly I lost weight, albeit at a slow rate. What I missed most was berries, yogurt, proper gravy/ sauces and the higher carb veg. So for the moment I am going to do induction until I am in ketosis and then I will move up the carb ladder whilst still keeping an eye on the calories. Hopefully by keeping a more flexible approach I will be able to keep my focus. At this time I just want to stop the weight increase and get my comfort eating under control. All the weight I lost last year is all back on....sigh.

    So sorry to hear about your dad Sammy, tough times indeed, sending hugs to you.

    It looks like you don't have much to lose, so maybe instead of induction go onto the second rung and include yogurt and berries?

    Oh big hugs from me too Sammy - I'm so sorry to hear about your dad xxxxxx

    Of course any kind of eating plan goes out the window during times like these, when my mum was ill the entire family lived on fish and chips every night...

    I agree with Val - why not go straight on to OWL, then you'll get the berries, etc that you crave

    Morning ladies, than for your kind words. I only plan on doing induction for 3 or 4 days, then I will move to owl. My stats are not correct, I am posting from my phone at the moment, I will update them at the weekend, I am about 10 lb from posted.

    Good day yesterday, mainly bacon, eggs, salad, burger and a small amount of coleslaw. Taking one day at a time.

    I have not got around any of the diaries but will catch up over the weekend, lots of the regulars seem to have stopped posting. I must say hello to all the newbies.

    I'm so sorry to hear your news, my heart goes out to you. Don't, please, beat yourself up over taking comfort any way you could / can.

    Your plan sounds great to me - one thing I found while increasing my carbs recently is how hard it is to overeat carbs while eating 'clean' - with no wheat / sugar / major starches.

    Even adding a banana and berries and butternut my carb levels weren't crazy high and I could certainly find ways to fit those into owl.

    I also discovered alpro simply plain yogurt - 2g carbs per 100g and lovely with sweetener mixed in.

    Remember a large part of your gain will just be water and will come off in no time.
    dieting is hard. being overweight is hard. choose your hard.

    Thank you all for your kind words and advice. Well I have more or less to atkins for the last week. I have added in berries and alpro yogurt (thanks ML the yogurt is lovely) in the last two days and am really enjoying them, I have added a scoop of whey protein powder to the yogurt, to make it more filling. All other food is induction friendly. I haven't been on the scales yet, waiting until sat, but I don't feel as bloated as I did last week.
    Also when I eat Greek yog, I find it hard to stop at 100gr, keep going back to the fridge for more, but I don't find that with the alpro.
    Hope you are all having a good day.
