    Smile Fit to 40

    Good morning

    I am Nat and a newbie. Trying Atkins and today is day 1. Trying to get my head around the allowed foods on induction.

    I am also a newbie triathlete and during this journey I am not going to weigh myself but use clothing and body changes to determine my success or failure. If that makes sense.

    Will update later with how my day has gone.

    Just been to Tesco and felt a little faint. What a wimp I am. Don't think I have drank enough to be honest. Here is what today looks like nutrition wise.

    B - Salmon, eggs and asparagus (Hubby thought I had gone mental)
    L - Packet of pork scratchings
    D - Steak salad with mayo
    S - Cheese
    E - 23 mile bike ride which burned 800+ cals

    Hi Nat, Make sure you drink plenty of water, I never do! 23 miles is amazing! I love going out on my bike but I have my (nearly) 2 year old on the back so I'm very slow! ha! Your food looks yummy!

    Thank you Coffeelover. It's not a great amount of exercise for me. I like to do more but time wasn't on my side today. Not hungry at the moment which is a great feeling. No carb craving swings

    Well done on the bike ride, 23 miles sounds a hell of a lot and I'd want more than an 800 cal burn for that hehe, But I'm greedy. Just think of this re the water " the more you drink the more you shrink"
    Getting rid of the food zombie one bite at a time.....

    Really? I am suffering with PMT bloating and have purchased some water relief herbal tabs from boots. Just heading for a swim.....does swallowing pool water count?

    About 2 stone really but I will be happy when I get into my skinny pair of shorts I wore when I met my hubby. That's my goal.

    Hi! I'm new to Atkins too - I'm on my second week of induction. This forum is great for finding information, recipes and getting advice from others who've been at it for a while. Good luck with the wedding! I've been avoiding going out to eat because sticking with induction at a restaurant or event seems daunting, but I know I'll have to figure it out at some point.

    Hi, yes it is daunting. The food should in theory be ok as it will be a buffet but I know I shall cave in with alcohol over the weekend. Have a great second week
