Hey all, started induction for Atkins today. Here's my food for the day:

B'fast:
Two egg yolks, fried in butter
Three rashers of streaky bacon, ditto

Lunch:
One egg yolk, fried in butter
Two slices of bacon bacon, ditto

Dinner:
2 beef short ribs, seasoned with paprika
Rocket and racchcio salad leaves
Homemade French dressing (olive oil, 1tsp mustard, 1 garlic clove, 1tbsp white wine vinegar)

Snacks:
80g packet of snack chorizo (trace carbs)
Another 80g packet of snack chorizo
1 pepperami stick
37g of silverskin onions (1g carbs)

Just wondering if this is too much? Looking forward to pursuing this new approach - only ever tried low calorie before with varying degrees of success.

From what I remember from the book, at the beginning you have to eat until your fill full: not over-full but until you're not hungry anymore. You appetite will diminish as you go along anyway, usually (did for me). I think?!?!?

I'm new too. The only thing I question is the peppermint stick. Do you mean a candy peppermint stick with sugar? That might keep you out of ketosis...

I am curious though, what is chorizo? I could use some snack options.

Thanks for replies :) Chorizo is a Spanish sausages made with pork and spices. Really tasty and really low carb.

@lose30 - pepperami is a UK meat snack - 0.6g carbs per snack :)

Trying to get back in the swing of eating Atkins, in ketosis now, no hunger and re-reading the book... I know that it is the only way for my body to loose the weight.

Wish I had stuck with it many years ago. Could of change my life and health!

Here now and doing good...
