Oh, Simona, I'm glad you posted. Yesterday afternoon I prepared the ice cream from Atkin's New Diet Cookbook (1995). The recipe specifically said it is fine for induction - and it should be - nothing off plan. I ate some for dessert last night...and it is amazing! Really amazing, not diet amazing...BUT this morning, the first thing I wanted (before I'd even made my coffee) was more ice cream and then TOAST popped in my head.
I made my coffee and opened my email and saw your thread. Thank goodness, it helped me realize immediately why those were my first thoughts. I haven't acted on my evil thoughts - I couldn't make toast in this house if my life depended on it - but I understand why I had them.
I'm not drinking artificial sweetners at all, so my body and my head read the Splenda as SUGAR. Now I'm going to fight carb cravings for several days although I didn't go off plan. That is just WRONG! Like you, I'm not ready for even Atkins treats. Sugar-free jello and whipped cream doesn't trip the carb cravings, but the ice cream does for sure.
Congratulations for going right back on plan! We can do this!
