Well the basics of atkins are 20 net carbs a day with a minimum of 12 from veggies.

You can deduct up to 4 fiber grams from a foods carb count to get the net carb. Ie if I eat C and it has 8 grams carbs and 6 grams fiber I can deduct 4 for a total of 4 net carbs.

Cheese is 1 carb per ounce even if it doesnt say so and you should try to limit your servings.

Are you counting carbs?

The menu looks like you are on the right track but its hard to tell!

Get yourself the older version of Dr. Atkins book .... it will keep you on track. While you are waiting go to Veronica Atkins website and become familiar with the allowable induction foods ....

So far it looks like you diet is induction friendly .... as long as you have not had more than 4 oz. of cheese in the day. Also make sure you are drinking enough water and are eating enough of the allowed veggies. The water is a key component of this way of eating.
