I am stalling
I have been on Atkins for about 3 weeks now. I am down about 7 pounds and I like that but I seem to be gaining and losing the same 1-2 pounds for the past week and a half. I typically have scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast or the last few days I have sometimes had an Atkins shake with 2 net carbs. Lunch is usually a salad, ranch dressing or some other low carb dressing. This week I have been eating the fake potato soup made with cauliflower and it is so good. I made a double batch in the crockpot and it had 2 bags of cauliflower, half a stick of butter, chicken broth, about a cup of coconut milk with no carbs, a block of cream cheese and about a cub of velveeta cheese. I know velveeta is not extremely low carb but that cup of velveeta was in a pot that was about 4 quarts. I sometimes garnish it with cheddar cheese, about 2 tablespoons, and maybe some bacon bits. I donít think the soup is the problem. Supper is generally whatever meat I am serving the family, fish, chicken, roast beef and maybe some of the soup or another low carb veggie. This past Sunday I cheated a little and had some tortilla chips and rotel dip. I missed drinking the water I needed to drink over the weekend and maybe I need to increase that. Any suggestions?
