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
-hard boiled eggs

-all meats (baked, broiled, fried)

Please share on this post. Thanks again!

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.

Lost some of the weight before, I can do it again and keep it off this time.

Motivation- Think of what your mom (now an angel) would say to help motivate you to stay on track. Remember, God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

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).

This is my second time around with weight loss. Originally lost from 220 down to 155. Learn from my mistakes and don't relapse! LOL

Hi there! I started Induction July 20th and it's been a roller coaster so far. At first I started off great, I lose a lot and pretty fast... it's tapered off now, but I don't think I'm getting enough to eat. Nothing sounds good! I've decided I have to MAKE myself eat. So far today I've only had a lunch plate with some pepperoni and melted mozzarella cheese on it. I know, I know.. not nearly enough. When I started out, I was eating lots of eggs, we have chickens... at least half an avocado a day if not a whole one... and whatever else.. burgers with mayo. etc. I don't snack a whole lot but I did buy some BBQ pork rinds and string cheese.. oh and the pepperoni.

My weight lost went to 17 lbs I think at one point, but I'm wondering if the scales were wrong that day... but I'm still holding at 11 lbs down and that was with cheating a bit on Sunday for my daughter's birthday.

I started on this website a very long time ago and ended up leaving it because I just didn't feel like I was getting much support. I don't know.. maybe it was just me. But I'm back again to give it another go. Feel free to PM me if you'd like.

@Dragonfly33 - I'd love to get an example of what you eat in a day. It sounds like you are doing it right!! Way to go!!
