I'm guessing you're either not doing Atkins or not on the induction phase because the berries and nuts would kill that. It all looks delicious!!

What's your favorite hot pepper?

the berries only require 5grams a day which give around 3.5g of carbs which for the nutritional content of them is an easy sacrifice to make. i'm keeping my carbs under 20g a day for about 2 weeks which i think is inline with the atkins induction phase, but i'm not to fussy about it. its kinda self researched project as part of my degree so i'm trying it out

Looks good.

IMHO, one thing to watch out for (if you start gaining or not losing) is your calories. Also make sure you are eating lean meats and not fatty ones regardless of what LC plan you are following.

You might want to check out the Low Carb recipe boards. http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/low-carb-recipes-83/

And the FAQ
http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/low-carb-frequently-asked-questions-79/


GOOD LUCK !!!!
