S/C/G: 175/172.8/105

Height: 5'2

Default Starting Atkins - Limit 20-30g carbs a day- Wanna join me?

Ok...so I feel like a sore loser. This is my 5th time doing atkins (3rd time on this forum). I am actually bigger than ever.

I am 5'2, and current weight is 170. I am a size 14. Now, I need all the help I can get to get to a healthy weight. Last time I was on this thread, I weighed 150.

I started atkins 3 days ago, and my weight went from 175 to 170. Totally ecstatic about it! But, I still have another 50 pounds to lose.

Can you all share simple low carb snacks and recipes?

So far, I am currently eating this as a snack:
-can of tuna
-small can of olives
-carrots
-hard boiled eggs


Recipes:
-all meats (baked, broiled, fried)
-salads

Please share on this post. Thanks again!

I am not doing atkins 100% but I have cut carbs to about 35g per day and I am steadily losing and in ketosis. I have a lot more weight to lose but happy to join you if you like

I've been doing Atkins extended induction since November 2014. Happy to offer help anyway I can. I'm not a big snacker but if I do its usually just sliced cucumber, or a boiled egg. You will find if you do Atkins the right way that there really isn't a need for snacking. Make sure you get all your water in everyday and only eat food approved on the induction list.

My go-to meals are egg omelettes loading with veggies, baked chicken breast wrapped in bacon w/ red onions and mushrooms, Beef steak w/ grilled onions and side salad.

Honestly I'm not much of a snacker. I eat my meal and that's about it. But if I'm too lazy to cook my go to things are ham and cheese rollups, pepperoni and/or cheese chips, and cream cheese (yeah, I just eat it plain).
