Default INDUCTION week challenge! 4/28 to 5/5

I just decided to jump the gun and start the thread 1 day early as I actually started Atkins Induction yesterday. So please keep track of what you are eating (Post Menus, Calories, Exercise calories burned (if you wish)) and comments on how you feel and your weight (loss) of course! This Challenge is just for 1 week 4/28 to 5/5. Such a short period of time in our life. Tho the results will resonate for our whole life!

We WILL do this and can and will have a Great Week!

Thanks for starting this, Sue - my weight actually finally moved but I'm still game for a week of focus

Plan for the day :
B : bulletproof coffee
L : salad w vinaigrette, asparagus, beef, coconut chips
D : broccoli, bone broth soup, beef, berry/coconut kefir mix
Snack : none (discouraged on Wahls Paleo Plus)

I will also have one serving (one ounce) of macadamia nuts, which are finally up for their turn on reintroductions. I'll have one nut when I have my coffee, 2-3 at lunch and the remainder of the 1 ounce serving at dinner. (Anyone new to Atkins who is really following induction rules should look away, nuts aren't on induction)

I haven't actually checked the fridge, I might shuffle the meals a bit based on whats in the fridge & needs to be cooked & eaten...

Will not get much exercise today, my toddler is home with a fever.

Daily weights for challenge :
185.8 Apr 28

So can I do this even though I have no intentions of giving up fake sweetener? I can't survive my rash of finals this week without fake sugar.

so far today:

Breakfast: coffee with 1.5 tbs heavy cream, splash of almond milk (large coffee 20oz total) atkins pb cups: 275 calories 2 net carbs 3 protein 24 fat

Lunch: Questbar Peanut Butter Supreme: 210 calories 4 net carbs, 20 protein, 10 fat

planned dinner is sirloin steak, 2 fried eggs and some sauteed mushrooms. with an avocado brownie for dessert if I am in the mood for it. (http://mariamindbodyhealth.com/hallo...lthy-brownies/) : 831 calories 6 net carbs 49 protien 65 fat

totals and macros for day: 1316 calories, 12 net carbs (3%), 72 protien (23%), and 99 fat (73%) v. good as my aim is usually 5%/20-25%/70-75%

I did an hour on the elliptical and burned 670 calories according to my HRM

edited to add: had a second sirloin steak, some cheese, and i made some frosting with cream cheese. ACTUAL totals: 1676, 15 (4%), 112 (28%), 119 (68%)

Had 2 canada dry soda's and 1 mountain dew the last few days. Not diet. But have been trying to get rid of the "FOS" problem. Otherwise, I'm doing OP. Will start posting meals and such when that problem is taken care of

The spirit of this week is Back to Basics, in whatever form that takes for you - you can follow the rules of Atkins induction to a T or you can do your own thing, the unifying purpose being to remove your own wiggle room and not fool yourself with the stuff that you know you shouldn't be having... For example, the nuts I had today pushed my calories over my target, and when I'm in hyper-focus mode I try to minimize those kinds of snacks. (I was actually on a planned reintroduction so I'm just using that example, you won't see other nut servings from me this week!)

So for me, I am "back to basics" and tracking, but not Atkins induction. I'm already juggling the rules of AIP reintroductions and Wahls Paleo Plus, that's more than enough.

Planned :
B : bulletproof coffee
L : salad w vinaigrette, asparagus, beef, coconut chips
D : broccoli, bone broth soup, beef, berry/coconut kefir mix
Snack : none (discouraged on Wahls Paleo Plus)

Actual :
B : bulletproof coffee
L : salad w olive oil vinaigrette, beef, avocado, red cabbage cole slaw
D : bone broth soup made w spinach and broccoli, crackslaw, one ounce macadamia nuts (AIP reintroduction challenge today) and raspberries with coconut milk
Snack : none

Numbers :
1736 Calories, 69% fat (137g), 19% protein (86g), 11% carb (51g/ 27g fiber)
Calories are about 1 serving of macadamia nuts higher than target

As expected, I didn't get many steps in today, my toddler was sick and clingy...

Daily weights for challenge :
185.8 Apr 28
185.0 Apr 29

Plan for Tuesday :
B : bulletproof coffee
L : raw carrot salad, bone broth soup, asparagus, beef, coconut chips
D : raw broccoli salad, beef, braised cabbage, berry/coconut kefir mix
Snack : none (discouraged on Wahls Paleo Plus)

Yes, I'm liking the idea of a one-week challenge in general, allowing us a place to be hyper-focused on one small behavior.

Maybe we'll make it a regular "make your own one-week-challenge" thing? Sometimes people might choose a carb level, no sweeteners, exercise, whatever they need to tweak or improve... Especially that idea of only doing it for one week for things that seem too overwhelming seems useful...

Good Morning,
I like the focus as well. I've had good luck since I started on Thursday. However yesterday I added some food because I was very hungry. I'm up a little this morning. Not surprised. Maybe today I won't be as hungry.

Monday: 1521 calories, 59/31/9%. 35 carbs/12 fiber

4/24 153.6
4/25 152.4
4/26 151.4
4/27* 149.8
4/28. 149.8
4/29 150.4

Today:
B: great lakes gelatin, 2T balk and half, 2 20 oz cups decaf, then herbal tea. 4oz pork blade steak fried in butter
L: 3 oz London broil, 1/2 oz goat cheese, romaine, EVOO, balsamic
S: 2stalks celery, Philly jalapeņo cream cheese
D: 1 Aidell's link, 2 cups shredded cabbage, butter

Should be around 1150 calories, 21 carbs/7 fiber

Good luck today everyone!

Calee yu need to come cook for me! that all sounds so delicious and filling and your cals are still super low!

Sue- caffeine is what gets me through the day!!! honestly I drink so much it is crazy lol I did just get diagnosed with ADHD though so I think it has been my version of self medicating since I actually feel calmer on caffeine unless I take the pills with like 200mg. then my body jitters but my mind is calm

I have no Idea what my menu for today will be. I have a training appointment at 3 and eating dinner with a friend from class before our final at 7pm. thatll likely be at the dining hall so probably a hamburger patty and veggies for dinner. I will check in later and fill out what I had. my goal though is still under 20 net carbs with my macros around the 5/20/75 ratio.
