Hello Elizellen
just thought I would introduce myself, as I am also from UK and noticed that most people seem to be from USA and some of the food stuff they mention I have never heard of so it is helpful to know someone else that I can ask. Well done on your weight loss and it looks like you dont have much else to lose wish I could say similar I have only started on Monday 12th but decided to get weighed today (one day early) and I have not lost even an ounce is that normal?

Hi Farah!

Good to see another Brit on board.

I would suggest waiting till you have done the full 2 weeks on induction before worrying about how much weight you are losing an thinking about troubleshooting your menus.

You have only been on induction for 4 days so far, and from what I have seen on Atkins support boards some people lose well from the start, others take the full 2 weeks to see much change and others even lose nothing the first few weeks till their body sort of 'resets' itelf and starts to lose weight.

Also depending on how much weight people need to lose their results differ.

Someone with 40 pounds to lose might 'expect' to lose between 2-5 pounds in that fortnight where someone with 200 pounds to shed might 'expect' to lose over 20 pounds in the same time and still be losing the same percentage.

How are you enjoying your food choices so far?

Hi Karen, I am kinda new to this board and I see you've been here for a while and are a chef. I would like your opinion about this recipe. Would it be acceptable on the Atkins Induction or anywhere on Atkins?

2 Tbs. Real Butter
1 OZ Heavy Whipping Cream
3 tsp. of Splenda

Melt the Bakers & Butter, stir in Cream and Splenda and drop by 12 teaspoon full on wax paper and chill.

Why there aren't any kind of Beans allowed in the induction phase. What if I eat half a cup of black beans which are about 12 grams of carbs and still manage to be under 20g of carbs for the day and be in ketosis? Is this wrong?

Thanks

No, you cannot have beans on induction. Atkins is not only about the number of carbs that you have, but also where those carbs come from.

There are 4 phases in the Atkins plan - induction, OWL (ongoing weightloss), pre maintenance, and maintenance.

In Induction, there is a list of acceptable foods to stick to (at the beginning of this thread). You should stick to these foods ONLY. The second phase (another sticky post in this forum) has 9 "rungs" to the carb ladder. Beans fall into rung 6. One of the highest. You need to work your way up to that point before adding them in. They are high in carbs and very starchy.

If you were following a different plan and are now thinking about Atkins, I would strong recommend you find a copy of one of the books and read through it.

So, what I am getting about induction friendly food is that it has to be high in fat and even in calories, right?
i like to cook easy meals,
so what can i make on induction besides eggs, omelets, baking chicken, pork chops, and boiling ribs.
What else can I make without too much time in the kitchen and which would not make crave something sweet afterwards, and still lose weight?
Please, advise,
thank you indvance

Hi Wikireader! I'm new here and no expert, but it seems to me you could add marinated chicken tenders, chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad, crabmeat salad (all mixed with different ingredients like capers or anchovies for variety, perhaps?); and stuff with ground beef or chicken or turkey such as meatballs, stuffed cabbage, and meatloaf. Also pot roast. Also chopped olives mixes with some cream cheese I think would be ok, eat on a celery stick.

Oven roasting a nice cut of beef shouldn't take much longer than baking chicken.

heavy whipping cream has carbs... but because of the FDA rules they can say 0 carbs if the amount is less than .6 carbs per serving.

Yes, in USA they can set a ridiculously small serving size to be able to claim that zero on labels.
I am so glad that UK labels list nutrition info per 100 grams/mls to make it easier to get a good setimate of our numbers!

Elize,

I agree...

I tend to be more of a government please get the hell out of our lives type of person, but when it comes to nutrition labeling I believe the laws should be stricter.

John
