Thank you!
I am really looking forward to getting this going. Tonight I had my weekly visitation with my old clothes. They told me how much they missed me and when are we going to be a family again. I promised them it would be soon.

I have one concern--my husband. He works out in the field and sometimes lunch us whatever you can find on the highway. (Not literally ON the highway. Its not the Roadkill Grill but whatever mom and pop cafe he finds nearby. And when I say he works in the field, I mean he could be sent anywhere in the state in a moment's notice.) Can he skip induction and go straight into OWL?

I love your visitation with your clothes! how witty! I know the feeling...i have a few great items that my big ol' bottom wont fit into yet! I will get there though!

Cafes are the probably the easiest places to eat out on this WOE.....he can have two hamburger patties without the bun....any meat really... Induction is really important to get things going...others may suggest different. It really does help to read the book so you can understand the principals behind this...cause slipping up and eating too many carbs with all this fat intake will actually make you gain. I monitor what I eat carefully and if I splurge on a few carbs....I have to make sure I have no more than 30 for the whole day including veggies. I monitor my ketones too so that I stay in ketosis. During induction you have to stay really strict....so maybe going into OWL will be ok....I just really like how induction jump starts everything. Sorry, I'm back and forth on this...I just know people who have done both and lost but have lost more by doing induction... if some of these places serve breakfast all day then he can feast on omelets! I love having eggs for lunch or dinner!

Excellent point. He loves eggs and since his cholesterol is really low, he can have more eggs than an Easter basket.

Hehe...I see you on here very early with me, Caroline.

Time to make the coffee!!

Another possibility for your husband, honey, is convenience stores. They usually have things like hard-boiled eggs and cheese sticks in the refrigerator case. Some of them (like WaWa's here) make sandwiches for you to order and you can just take the meat off the bun too.

When you say out in the field....is he gone for days at a time or is this just a one-day out in the field deal? If it is....you could just prep stuff like chicken/tuna/egg salad ahead of time and pack some in a container for him to take with him for lunch.

Indeed! I check in while I drink my morning coffee before work. Then I get to work and check in again. Addiction? What? No way.

I am new to Atkins and I do not have the book however I read all the info on the website and get the general idea. Is truvia a acceptable sweetner? And is the olive oil mayo okay to use? DO I HAVE TO BUY THE BOOK? My doctor recommended I do Atkins because I have PCOS and insulin resistance. She stresses that if I lose weight and cut back carbs I will no longer have insulin resistance and my pcos will improve dramatically. I hope I can do this.

Well you never have to do anything but I personally think the book is really helpful. It is great to know the how and why LC works. I learn something every time I read it. If you don't want to buy it could you get it at the library? I picked my books up online for under a dollar at half dot com

I take metformin 500 mg for the PCOS and Insulin resistance. I noticed someone had said something about that med and this diet is it not safe?

It is safe or at least was for me. I was very strict lc (and thin and too met for many years. I took 1000 mg 2 x daily.

You will most likely find that through low carbing and weight loss you can likely get off the met. Even with myself having diabetes and pcos I could get off.

[QUOTE=sweetlily;3129289]DO I HAVE TO BUY THE BOOK? QUOTE]

I know Jerseygyrl will strongly reccomend you read it--2002 or ealier. The reason is Dr. Atkins has a precise method and now that he is not here to protect his namesake, a lot of other people are trying to profit off of it. So if you really want to know what the plan is, you need to read the book.

Thank you for backing me up
I am a firm believer if you want to do Atkins and you want to do Atkins correctly....the book is critical.

By the way, I picked mine up last night. The forward is written by The Man himself so I know the info is untainted.

JerseyGyrl--you are my mentor (whether you want to be or not ).
