Thank you for joining our group and this forum (its a greal place to frequent and Lulu is right... everyone is REALLY supportive!)
When I do Atkins. I usually have some sliced cheese (sharp cheddar in my case) to snack on. I also LOVE deviled eggs and those are like treats in my book. Try different spices... oh the more the merrier. I have tried alot of the Ms Dash ( I am trying to lower the salt too) as you can grill Chicken/fish/shrimp in different spices and that makes your mouth happy. When I have alittle extra money (on my food stamp card) I try and get some good Boars head deli meat. That is just darn good to eat plain or with cheese/lettuce/mayo/spice rollups... But I like it plain too... But I am sure that your deli has some of the good meat (not packaged processed full of preservative meats). I have alot to lose...so I really can't eat nuts and fruit... but I treat myself once a week to peanuts (in shell) or some strawberries or some almonds but I try for just 1 a week as the more I eat of those... the less I will lose that week. But I think spices and look at sauces (hot sauce has 0 carbs!).
But welcome welcome welcome and join us in the amazement of losing weight and feeling full (and not starving well except during TOM I think) and WATER... make that a habit as it does keep your organs (Kidneys and Liver) functioning much better getting rid of the icky fat and Cr*p
