Coming off of induction.

2 ounces cheddar cheese
8 ounces water
2 scrambled eggs made w/1/2 tsp butter
coffee w/light cream
8 ounces water
ordered pizza for easy family Halloween dinner
ate the cheese off of 2 slices
8 ounces of water

Planning on some decaf tea in the next hour.

I am so proud that I haven't touched ANY of the candy around here. What a change from last year!

Okay, making an assumption that the cheese off the pizza was another couple of ounces. Is Atkins really about eating nothing all day? I total what you wrote here as under 700 calories. I'm hoping that someone more familiar with the program will step in.

Oh that is not good for you! You need protein! You need to be eating more! :) Its just a matter of learning what you can eat-- have you got the book?

Oh yes. I have the book.
Today was crazy with Halloween. I am a class mom and was out early today at the store buying things for the class party. I wasn't too hungry this morning. By noon I was hungry and had the eggs and coffee. I then scooted to the school for the rest of the afternoon. I wasn't hungry at all while there. By 4:30 I was hungry and picked up the pizza for the kids before they went trick or treating. The cheese fit easily into my day.
I guess today's choices were made around convenience. I usually have some low salt ham or turkey with the cheese for breakfast and a salad in the evening. I did make some homemade chicken soup earlier in the week for dinner as well. I will be adding more variety now that induction is over.
It does sound like low a low calorie day though. But I wasn't overly hungry all day. For me, induction has been an overall appetite suppressant.

Atkins Induction is 20 carbs per day of only foods on the acceptable foods list...12-15 of those carbs should be coming from veggies & salad. Thats per Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution:)
