Default My menu - please tell me what you think!

So this is my 5th day on atkins! I feel great and have noticed much of my bloating has gone from the vacation I took to England.

I wanted to post my menu of the things I have been eating for some feed back. Please tell me what you think.

B: 2 fried eggs in olive oil 2 pieces of bacon (have yet to find nitrate free bacon, but I am looking!) Decaf americano with 1 splenda and 1 tablespoon cream. (Yes, I count the carbs in the cream and splenda)

L: 1 can tuna fish with mayo in a salad (1 cup spinach, 3 cut mushrooms, 5 olives, 4 slices of red pepper, cracked pepper and a little bit of crumbled cheedar cheese. It comes out to be about 6 carbs)

S: Some babybel full-fat cheese (I always count it as 1 carb even though it says it has none), 5 olives (1 carb) or perhaps 1 cup of pork-rinds if I am craving something crunchy (2 carbs for snack)

D: Lamb, chicken, cornish game hen...etc (0) with some veggies carefully measured out (Usually ends up being 5-6 carbs)

I also have been drinking so much water you wouldn't believe! At least 3-4 liters a day!

Anyway, please tell me what you think and I am always looking for snack ideas

Thats a great plan !!

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

So how are ya now? My husband and I started August 18, he has lost 11 pounds, I have lost about 7 (TOM just started 1/2 way through the 2nd week so I can't judge the weight loss right, gah!). I have noticed I am less hungry. I did feel crummy but it could have been PMS in retrospect.

I notice you don't eat the bars. Good on you! Jersey Girl was nice enough to point out that the bars might be stalling me and today I looked at my food log. Week one I had at most 1 bar a day. I lost 4 pounds that week. Week 2 I had 2, and once 3 a day! No wonder. Haha!

So yeah, stay away from the bars, though they are delicious, emergencies only or wait until you are out of induction!

How is your progess now?

Goal, to be happy, healthy and relaxed. Ultimate weight goal, 150, Ultimate cholesterol goal, under 100!
