  1. I've had the Chili Con Carne and liked it and would buy it again. Now I'm eating the Chicken Marsala which is just OK - not good enough for me to buy again. Have you tried them? Which ones did you or didn't you like?
  2. Today was my first day on Atkins. I was just wondering if anyone here has had success with the program. I like how easy it seems.
  3. Im back on Atkins after having awesome success with it before (I lost 50 pounds.. and then I got pregnant :) ) My son is 7 weeks old and Ive been in induction for a week and a half.. I havent lost a pound. This is insane. Weight FALLS OFF during induction. Is it because Im still not back to normal post baby? (hormones, etc.?) Im also on Zoloft due to bad case of the baby blues, would that have anything to do with it? I know I should be patient, and not expect the weight to fly off like it did last time.. but Im a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding next month and Id really rather not look like a friggin WHALE. :confused:
  4. In looking at the (old-ish) book, it says in Induction I can eat 2-3 c. of raw veggies but the website says SIX!! What's up? Has the diet changed? TIA! Kimm
  5. Just finished his book - Why We Get Fat, which I really, really enjoyed - very eye-opening, very scientific, well-researched and insightful. I'm embarrassed to be starting yet another diet/eating thread. Questions for those who have read and possibly/hopefully tried his approach: * Did you lose weight? * Any other benefits? * Is it relatively easy to follow, practical, etc. * Any other books or sites you can recommend? Does one follow Atkins or something? I'm a bit confused here, because, it seems that he doesn't go the whole 9 yards to recommend any specific book, etc. This is obviously not a diet book, per se. * Did you regain the weight as soon as you came off the program - birthdays, vacations, etc. * Did you go completely no-carb, or just more moderate? * Anything else you can kindly take the time to share? ETA: * What does maintenance look like? Are you completely no-carb forever or low-carb? Maintenance concerns me the most. All or most diets work while we're on them. It's the keeping it off that's the hardest part. * I'm wondering if I can cut out the main culprits - sugar, all refined carbs (bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, etc.), but still have some fruit? I love fruit ... but that may be part of the reason why it's a problem for me. I've never liked dieting. Loathed it in fact. But the older I get, the harder time I have with weight loss and maintenance. I believe that so much of what he says is relevant to me. I wish I could follow a more moderate approach - NoS, etc. - but those don't do anything for me. This is all I can think of for now. I'm sure I'll have more questions in a while. Thank you for listening. :)
  6. Would anyone like to guess at an explanation? Here are the details: Six months ago, I started getting in shape. At that point my cholesterol was 275. Six months later, I've lost 20 lbs., and I have way more muscle tone. And my cholesterol is 350. (??) HDL and LDL -- I don't have those numbers. How did I lose the weight? Small, frequent meals (maybe 300 cals every 3 hours). Protein, complex carbs, fruit, and veg. No wacky diet or drugs. I didn't eliminate or emphasize any one food group. I eat lots of olives, coconut milk every day, nuts every day, few eggs, little shellfish, some red meat, very little saturated-fat dairy, and not too much junkfood. Do I do aerobics? Very little. Mainly weights, but very moderate. (I find a little bit makes a big difference.) Age: 50. Weight: Was 180, now 160, need to lose another 20 or so. Supplements: multi vitamin, fish/flax oil, calcium, probiotic Medications: none Family history: No one in my immediate family has high cholesterol. Your thoughts?
  7. Our budget is REALLY tight this week. And even though I stock up on low prices, etc, I need to add something cheaper to our budget than just eggs, meat, and veggies. What would be the least damaging to the diet while saving me some money? I'm thinking of adding some quinoa, or oatmeal, or beans of some sort. Maybe chili with beans? Any thoughts?
  8. I went to my doctor today and he recommended that I go on the South Beach diet as my diet of choice. So pros/cons? How did you do on it? Did it work for you?? Any websites/books help you? Any tips? I LOVE sugar so any diet I go on is going to be a struggle!
  9. I am going to go on this diet, but needed some opinions and success stories...from "real" moms like you...:bigear: (I have 20 lbs to lose, and do not have any preexisting medical conditions, except nursing school.:D.::lol::D which has aided in my being overweight. The average person gains 35# in school, and if i don't get some help...:eek:: Thank you, Lacy:)
  10. Day 3, and I’m feeling…. hot! (And no, I don’t mean able-to-slip-into-a-bikini hot!) Truly, I feel like my base body temperature is higher. Is this common? Of course it’s just darn hot out, but this feels different. Not bad, just warm. Not like a hormonal hot flash, either. Another question (sorry, possibly TMI) – I’ve had to go to the bathroom more than usual. For, ahem, both reasons. I am drinking a lot more water, mostly because I am genuinely more thirsty. Did any of you experience this as well? Also, I have been very busy and sometimes I work through snack times right to the next meal time. Could I combine breakfast with my midmorning snack if I don't get breakfast 'til a bit late? Or if I work through morning snack time, can I eat my morning snack with my lunch? I am truly not getting hungry between eating times. I used the two-week online meal planner and it is a *ton* of food! If you are familiar with that menu planner, can I ask if you add veggies into your day in addition to what that planner recommends? It seems like I should be getting more leafy veggies in. For now I am just following the planner as it is written (well, I choose one of the three options for each snack/meal, but it still shows a net carb count for the day's menu selected). Any other what-to-expect tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

  12. For some reason, I can't find the answer to this question. My daughter's little garden is prolifically producing green beans, but the girls don't want to eat so many. My husband and I are having great success on Atkins, and we feel great losing weight. How many net carbs are in a a serving of steamed green beans? How much is a serving? More profoundly: Why can't I find this anywhere? :confused:
  13. Did you see the new Atkins Chef Recipes site: http://www.atkinschefrecipes.com/ And the new Atkins Success Story: http://atkinssuccessstory.atkins.com/templates/SuperstarLanding.aspx
  14. Years ago I lost 65#s following a low fat diet. Unfortunately I ate very unhealthy low fat foods such as low fat cookies, cakes, ice cream etc. The weight dropped off because I was in my early 20’s, was nursing a baby, was walking an hour a day and working out. Had a few more babies and gained a lot of weight. Then, a few years ago I lost 100#s eating a high carb diet with a bit of protein thrown into the mix. I ate lots of whole grains, lots of veggies, fruits and lean proteins like beans, lentils and occasional chicken breast or fish. By the time I was down 100# though my hair was falling out and I was freezing all the time. I finally figured out that it was because of the extreme low fat diet. I added in some healthy fats (olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds) and started feeling better. My hair grew back in. Unfortunately I stopped eating this way and started eating junk food and fatty foods and put back on a good amount of the weight. So here I am again trying to get healthy. I have been following a low-carb diet in order to fight off systematic Candida, but I can’t handle all the protein and fat. I just don’t feel good eating this way. I was reading through a thread yesterday about diet (can’t find it now) and a lot of people mentioned how unhealthy a low fat diet is and most recommended a low-carb diet and lots of fat. I am worried about becoming diabetic so I really want to get this weight off. Adding to the confusion is that I have macular degeneration and my eye specialist told me to avoid high fat, especially animal fat, and to eat lots of fruits and veggies. So I have no clue what to do now as far as changing the way I eat. Which diet is right? There was so much conflicting information when I tried searching online that I gave up in confusion. Thanks if you read this far. :) and if you have any advice about how to change eatiing habits for life and not regain the weight, I would love to hear from you!
  15. what foods would you eat for variety, even on Induction? I have a weird plan and part of that is being on Atkins for a time. The first time I did Atkins, I lost 21 pounds in two weeks then NOTHING for 3 weeks despite cutting out anything questionable (nitrites, sugar substitute, etc). But 21 pounds can be a good jumpstart and Atkins works well for the second part of my plan. ANYWAY, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of meat, cheese, pork rinds, eggs, etc. Part of it is that after three days, I'm bored to death with the food,even sick of some of the foods! So for variety, what would you eat? BTW, please keep in mind we're a family of nine and not particularly comfy financially. And of course, it can be various combinations and recipes with the mainstays of the diet.
  16. Ok, so lets get this out there. I went to JC Penny's today to look for a dress to wear to my neice's baptism this weekend. I'm going to be her godmother as well. This is really special. Well...they didn't have any dresses big enough :eek: To be toally honest, because I've been hiding this from myself, I am now almost 190lbs, at 5'1. This is not good. This is the heaviest I've been other than pregnant. My daughter is now 16 months old and I'm getting bigger not smaller. I need to do something to get this weight off. I'm going to be a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding in October and I'd like to feel a little better about myself by then. Plus we would like another child and there is NO WAY I will allow myself to get pregnant while this heavy. I'd end up bedridden. So, I know low carb works. But, I'm still nursing my daughter many times a day, and usually at least once a night. Is this ok? I'm thinking maybe I need to skip induction because of that, and add in things like berries and such right away? Anyone been there done that?
  17. There is talk by the specialists of trying my 15dd (mentally about 7-8) on an Atkins type diet for her mitochondrial disorder. They used to use the ketogenic diet but that is VERY tough to follow. I was just wondering if this is at all doable with a child/teen? I know that super high fat/low carb diets are typically used for teens but this would be under medical supervision with blood work and other metobolic tests being run/monitored. I just wonder as a lifestyle if we could do it. We also don't know the benefit ratio yet either as I know it can help some kids but not all and even a few do poorly on the diet. What kinds of things CAN you eat on the Atkins diet---I think this would be staying on the stricter side of the diet.
  18. I have been on weight watchers for about 8 weeks now and am close to my goal weight. Two weeks ago I picked up Gary Taubes book, Why We Get Fat. Now that I have read it, I am really torn and unsure how to proceed. I have been relatively happy counting my points and exercising and losing weight. According to Gary's book, the underlying weight loss should be attributed to a reduction in carbs (which I have reduced, but certainly come nowhere near eliminating!) So do I just focus on low carb and bag everything else? Since I am within a pound or two of my goal and headed to maintenance, what does low carb maintenance look like? I finally lose weight, and now when someone asks me how, I can't even give them a good answer! I though it was "eat-less, exercise-more," but maybe not.... Please help me sort this out.... Thanks!
  19. I know, I know...weight loss isn't supposed to be fast and I know the speeches that will follow my title. I have tried so much and my body is fighting it, so I need something a bit extreme. My DH just decided that we can take a family vacation to the coast. We haven't been in 4 years! I have gained 15 pounds and I can't wear anything from last spring/summer. I don't have the money for new clothes and I don't want to buy new clothes anyway, KWIM? I need a good kick start/jump start. I bet only 5-10 pounds and I could wear my capris from last summer. We leave in a month :001_huh: Thoughts? Ideas? Edited for clarification: I gained the weight with a thyroid med change, not because of potato chips ; )
  20. If you don't log, can you give me some specifics? How much protein, carbs, etc. I hate keeping a log and think this is for me:) Can anyone give me some guidance? I've read and tried South Beach and Atkins before but don't have the books right now.
  21. Hi all, I need some snack inspiration!!! I find that if I have good snack options available then it's much, much easier to stick to my diet. I recently began a low carb/sugar free/gluten free diet and have been having wonderful results :) . My energy is up, I've shed a bunch of retained water and have lost a few pounds as well. I was just wondering what others on a similar diet keep around for snacks? So far I've been having... - NutThin Crackers with either a wedge of Laughing Cow swiss cheese spread or hummus - fruit (usually an apple) with a handful of raw almonds - an Atkins chocolate/coconut "Endulge" bar when I'm really craving something sweet and chocolatey - low fat cottage cheese I just bought some Chia seeds today (they're soaking at this very minute, lol) and am looking forward to trying those. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Jenn
  22. I want as long as it doesn't have carbs in it? Today is day one (again, UGH!) and I had 2 scrambled eggs cooked with butter, then I was still hungry, so I cooked about 4 oz fish in olive oil and butter. I drank a glass of green tea. I'm feeling better. :D My goal is to reduce my Fatty Liver Enzymes, lose weight, and become healthy. I can never get past the carb addiction though. After a few days (maybe up to 2 weeks) I do really well but ultimately, I eat something I shouldn't and it's ALL OVER. I am an all or nothing kind of gal. :sad:
  23. I'm going back to Atkins for a bit and I need some breakfast ideas. I cannot stand eggs all the time and I do not want heavily processed, nitrate and salt saturated meats. So, what can I have for breakfast???? I'm thinking about doing Atkins one day and "low carb" the next. In other words, more traditional Atkins on day 1. On day 2, raw veggies and meat (think salad and grilled chicken). Day 3 would go back to Atkins. Any thoughts on this?? I'm trying to compensate for fluid retention from starting hormone therapy. Also, I need to compensate for anemia (that is why I started the BCPs). So, my thinking is good quality meats and proteins and good quality fresh raw veggies. No lunch meats, processed foods, junk starches, etc. I've been pretty good about my diet, but pastas, potatoes, and ice cream have snuck into it a bit too often. Time to clean it up!!!
