Fulltum's Atkins attempt
Im new to Atkins but certainly not new to weight loss!
Like most people I have tried lots of different diets but the most successful one I did was Cambridge when I lost 7 1/2 stone in 6 months :D Unfortunately a combination of failing at maintenance and falling pregnant with twins 2 months later meant the weight started creeping back on and 4 years later I am back where I started :(
I have tried to do cambridge again but just cant face all those months of no food! So I am gonna gove atkins a go as it works in a similar way but with lots of yummy food :D
I also believe it can be a lifelong way of eating.
I have read the book and lots of threads on here and I am ready and raring to go :D
Todays plan is
3 rashers bacon and scrambled eggs (with cream and butter)
1 oz mature cheddar
Tuna mayo salad
1oz mature cheddar
Roasted belly pork with mushrooms and salad
MFP puts this at 17g carbs :D
I have also roasted some chicken legs ready for nibbling on
Hi Fulltum and welcome :)
You will love Atkins and this forum,everyone here is so helpful - and if you get stuck, there's lots of experts to help :D
Menu sounds great, don't forget to glug lots of water.
Hi Fultum and welcome:)
Atkins is fab if you love your food but need to get some weight off - not really a diet more a lifestyle:). Good luck and remember to shout if you need some help:D
Thanks for the welcome ladies :)
Will be sure to shout up if I need any help x
Great first menu - looks like you have a good handle on this already :D
Well everything is going well so far except for this damn headache (think its caffeine withdrawal :()
I dont like coffee and can only drink tea sweetened with real sugar as I dont like the bitter after taste of sweetener and my other drink of choice is pepsi which is completely out of the question lol am drinking plenty of water but its not the same :)
Really enjoyed my belly pork for dinner :)
Have still got my chicken legs for nibbling later too.
Definately doesnt feel like Im on a diet which is great so fingers crossed this works :)
Hiya and welcome. You'll soon have the weight off as atkins is not a chore and no effort, really not a diet at all.
Hi and welcome
you sound like your really organised which is a good start. What day is going to be weigh in? X
Thanks everyone :)
Dizzy- I will weigh in on a sunday which should hopefully keep on track during the weekend!
I went to costco and stocked up on chicken fillets and drumsticks, bacon and belly pork as well as multivits and omega 3 and eggs so should be good to go!
I have bought avocado to try but not sure if I will like it lol
Good thinking, I don't think it would work for me though :) enjoy your week x
Well on to day 2 :)
3 egg cheese omlette with 3 rashers of bacon
Tuna and avocado salad
Chicken mini fillets and chorizo with mushrooms and salad
Well just had my first avocado and Im not sure what to think lol
It was neither nasty or nice was just there! I will certainly be able to tolerate it in my salads to add some good fats in so thats a plus :)
Just made the twins some sarnies for lunch and they had some tortilla chips on the side and I resisted the urge to have a handful (not due to wanting them just the habit of doing it :rolleyes:)
Once I am in the full stride of atkins I am going to start rejigging the kids diets as they eat a very carb heavy diet and I want to break their habits young to make it easier for them.
Sounds like a good plan to me. Well done on resisting the evil tortillas!
I like avocado with a little vinegar on, mushed up with some cheese and mayo. It can be a bland taste on its own.
Re the sweetener, I use hermasetas liquid (Amazon) - I don't use sugar much but a house sitter told me it was the closest thing to sugar she found. Worth a shot?
And well done, you are going great guns! :D
Moonlights- ooh will try that as yes it was very bland :)
Ladyfelsham- May check that out as I am missing my cuppa thanks for the tip :)
Well today is going well but I am feeling very peckish right now even though I have had my chicken and chorizo salad a soft boiled egg and a pepperami! I know things will ease up once ketosis hits and I cant wait as I know how great it feels once its here lol
