So I am really hoping to get some help from this forum! I am new to Atkins and haven't read the book, but I know I need to. I choose Atkins because I believe I am addicted to carbs (although it hasn't been to terribly hard so far). I feel I have done pretty good the past 2 days
(which is how long I have been on it) but some feedback would be GREAT!!! I am not really exactly sure how many carbs I have had the past 2 days it's mostly a guess, as I can't seem to find a reliable carb counting source (if anyone has one for online, or on my phone that would be great!)
So this is what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast was 2 eggs with 1 tablespoon of real bacon bits (it states 0 carbs) I also had a serving of cheese which states -1 carb
Lunch was a premade salad from walmart it said it had 5 carbs with the dressing included, I also bought 2 hard boiled eggs to add to it this said 1 carb so 6 carbs for lunch
Snack at work I was starving so I went to the deli and bought 3 slices of turkey breast and 2 slices of cheese and wrapped them up in each other I have no idea how many carbs this was
Dinner I made some chicken salad, I had 3 pieces of lettuce and about a table spoon of chicken salad wrapped up in each piece of lettuce. (carb count ???) After that I was still starving so I had a chicken of the sea salmon pack (carb count was either 0 or 1 can't remember)
The chicken salad I made had about 14 ounces of chicken around 3-4 tablespoons of mayo, maybe a table spoon of mustard, some onion, and celery, and a hard boiled egg, if this helps.
I had about 5 glasses of water and a cup of coffee in the morning with 3 all natural splenda packs and a splash of milk (bad I know) all day yesterday I was basically starving, but I thought this wouldn't hurt anyways because my stomach could stand to shrink some.
Today I feel I ate a bit more because I was starving yesterday and I'm praying I didn't go over on my carbs.
Breakfast was 3 eggs with some bacon bits and cheese (didn't measure as much) and 2 turkey sausage links it says 2 carbs for 3 links and I had 2.
Lunch / early dinner: we was out of town so we went to a buffett (this was the real tester!), I was hoping for lots of choices with this so I had about half of a steak that was probably around 4 onces so maybe 2-3?, and some pot roast (not sure how many ounces and no I didn't eat any of the potatoes in the roast) I had a bunch of green beans and carrots mixed in with my roast. I also had a small spoonful of broccoli and a small spoonful of cauliflower with a bit of cheese over them. I then had a large salad that covered a lot of the plate, it had lettuce, onion, some ham a bit of cheese, green peper, a bit of egg, cucumber and broccoli and some ranch.
We got home about 6 hours later and I was getting kind of hungry some I made some salmon I would say I had about 6 ounces with some herbs and olive oil and a big salad with just about a pinch of cheese and some ranch.
I had about 4 glasses of water today and a cup of coffee this morning with 3 splenda packs, and a splash of whipping cream. I also had a small iced coffee from Starbucks between lunch/dinner snack with whipping cream no milk and sugar free vanilla syrup.
QUESTIONS: I read its good to drink broth like chicken broth, I was not sure if this was true I think I would like some broth between meals sometimes as it would be warm, and satisfying, but it has a ton of sodium some help would be great! I also have a question about the cheese I've been using. It is Kraft mild Cheddar made with 2% milk. The carb count says -1 carb so I was really hoping that is accurate.
I really hope that wasn't to much for everyone to read, but as I said I have no idea how I did, and I really have no idea of my carb count! If someone could help me out, tell me anything I might have done wrong I would be so greatly appreciative! I have not lost any weight at all so far, I know it's only 2 days in, but a lot of people loose very quickly on this, and I do have a lot to loose so I'm really hoping I'm doing it right. I really appreciate the help everyone.. thanks so much.
