I welcome any advice from anyone who might have some suggestions. I started Atkins induction last week. I'm hoping to do an extended induction as I do not get bored with restricted foods. Last week I had a great loss of 7.2lbs. This was not water weight as I had been calorie counting three months prior to this and had lost my water weight months ago. Anyways, I would like to post the list of things I eat because while I am only two days into week two, my scale is showing a gain so far, and I'm not sure where it is coming from. My supplies for induction are limited due to where I live here in China. Below are foods that I've been eating on induction:
Eggs (fried, scrambled, boiled)
Cheese (Keeping to the 4oz per day but sometimes less if I feel constipated TMI)
Beef - hamburger meat
Pork slices (Closest thing to Bacon here that doesn't have a weird taste)
Pork belly slices (I live in Chongqing)
Pepperoni (no sugar and nitrate free according to the label in Chinese)
**Note: My veggie intake is independent as I can't do salads here. The veggies are never consistently safe all at the same time to eat nor do they look something I want to bring home and eat. I do get my 12-15 carbs per day from the veggies.
Mayonaisse (No sugar in it)
Oh, and I'm only drinking water.
Anyone have any suggestions as to what I can change or add to help keep my losses moving? As you can see by my ticker I have a lot to lose, and I don't expect to lose every day. I don't even count my scale everyday. I just use it as a part of my morning routine to make sure I was on track the previous day. I don't let it affect my emotions or control over the lifestyle change. So what gives??
