Default Atkins Diet Newbie (Ireland)

Hi guys,

I'm starting the Atkins diet next week. I have the book and lists of food but I'm curious as to what a typical daily menu looks like for others on the Atkins...


Any Atkins advice welcome.

Thanks

Hi and welcome
My daily food varies depending on if I'm at work that day or not. On weekends I'm a big bacon and egg breakfast person, veg or salad lunch (or nothing if I've had a late breakfast) and big meat dinner (tonight its pulled pork and asparagus)
On weekdays I'm up at 4am and have no appetite so I have an Atkins bar mid morning for breakfast (they don't seem to stall me) veg soup or salad for lunch and a small dinner of meat or fish and veg. I eat lots of cauliflower, asparagus, summer squash, mushrooms, peppers, radishes and other colorful stuff. I find I don't always have much of an appetite so I like to get enough variety and nutrition when I do eat so I mix it up quite a bit.

I'm only on Atkins diet for 3 weeks. My Menu varies like everyone else but basically this is what i have:-

Breakfast
Eggs bacon and a tomato or Flourless pancakes or waffels made with soy floor.I made a big batch and keep them in the freezer, or if i'm running late I have an Atkins bar.

Mid morning
Depends on what I had for breakfast. I try to have variety so I might have any of the folloing
Tuna salad
Bacon & Eggs with tomato
Egg salad
Cheese salad

Afternoon snack one of the following
Greek salad with olives feta cucumber and a little olive oil
handfull of cherry tomatoes
Small piece of chicken with salad
Half an avacado with lemon juice

Dinner one of the following
a stirfry made with chicken and vegetables
Steak and onion
Tuna Salad
Chicken &Broccoli cooked in forman with soy sauce

Evening snack
Atkins bar
Cheese crisps with avacado dip (Low carb)
Internet muffin (no flour) topped with cream cheese with sweetners.

Thats just a quick example. The thing is to become farmilliar with what you can have and the amount of carbs you can take and be as creative as you can be.

I try to keep to 20carbs per day and try to get about 12 of those carbs from vegetables.

Throughout the day I drink plenty of water and when I started first I put a little salt in every glass of water I drank. This helps you to keep hydrated and reduces some of the initial side effects.

Hope that helps
