Hello Smiley! Welcome to you
Atkins usually suggests you eat whole foods... Protein, Fat and alittle of the carbs. The Atkins bars do stall alot of people on the weight loss train as the sugar alcohols sometimes fool your body. Also the bars are not included in induction (the first 2 weeks). If you get a chance, find an old book of Dr Atkins from before 2003... to read up on what you can eat. That is the best thing about this diet.. you get to eat food!
The Protein and fat fill you up after the 1st couple of days (tho you should already be body trained from your IP dieting)...
Try Ham,Sausage, bacon etc with eggs (cooked in butter) for breakfast...
Lunch.. meat of any kind (try and stay away from the pre packaged deli meat tho as it has ALOT of nitrates (bacon too) and additives... If not eating Meat/chicken/turkey or pork.. have sliced from the case deli meat!
Veggies galor... just watch out for the starchy ones
Full Fat Dressings and butters and Mayo on yum... you can use Coconut oil/cream too
But read the book... as it will give you plenty of suggestions and I bet that there is an info thread too in this forum!
You will do good! Enjoy and Lose!
