Hi everyone! I just started Atkins yesterday! So far it has been "easy" for me but it could be that I am a meat person anyway (grew up in Argentina where you eat red meat everyday!!!)
I guess the hardest part for me has been leaving the fruits, I love them but I can't have them in moderation... The best part yesterday was making shimp with BUTTER!!! And not feeling guilty about it!!!
A little bit about me.... Always been somewhat "normal/little chobby", after my kids I ended up around 169, got down to 146 keep it up to 152 for two years and now I am back up in 160... I have tried many things including juice fasting which doesn't last a day for me because I get crazy around 6pm and I end up giving up and.... Binging!!!
I feel like Atkins may be "the plan" for me... This is the first time ever that I am not feeling like giving up on the second day, like I said it has been pretty easy (this is coming from somebody that starts a diet every Monday morning and breaks it by Monday afternoon!!!)
I still count calories and yesterday I had: 1200 calories, 150g of protein, 22g of carbs and 4g of fiber which I think it brings my 'net' carbs down to 18???
Today I made Oopsie rolls with LF cheese and no splenda... So I'll see how those end up tasting
