I'm not American, but I agree ... labelling laws should be exact - none of this "rounding down ... never rounding up!". Let's follow the UK pattern and count exactly per 100 grams!

In my copy of DANDR it says There are 'no added sugar' mayonnaises around if you look really hard at labels, if you don't want to 'risk' the added sugar in other makes.


I just have to tell you, your stats are just astounding! Congrats to you on such an incredible journey.

What about green beans/string beans, I can't find on any list. And I don't think they have any hidden sugars?

That's because they are actually called SNAP BEANS....

Beans, snap, green variety

There's also yellow.

Question Lentils? Pumpkin seeds? Beans? Soy milk?

Hi, thanks for posting allowable foods for induction. I have been a stalled SBer for months so I'm starting the Atkins today. I was wondering if lentils are allowed in induction or even after? What about pumpkin seeds? I'm not a vegetarian but I would like more meat-less and budget friendly options, plus we have a lot of these on hand.
Thanks

Nuts and seeds fall into rung 4 of the second phase of Atkins called OWL. Lentils would fall into rung 6 with the legumes.

You can find more about the 2nd phase of Atkins in this thread - http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=409812 It really spells out what things fall where, and how to add them back in.

I have to agree. You really are an inspiration! How long did you stay on Induction for? Could you possibly give me a sample of your everyday diet and exercise? I have been struggling with my weight for quite some time now and I want to be able to stick with it this time. Thank you so much in advance for your help!

I'm reallyyy really new to this. I'm wondering what vegeterian foods i can such as the beef style burgers, sausages, and chicken style pieces are any of them ok?? or the mince?? I am guessing that the southern fried burgers are out along with the veggie fingers all because of the breadcrumbs. if anyone has any ideas please reply thanks

I'd suggest getting the New Atkins New You book, as it addresses how to do Atkins as a vegetarian. They don't really recommend vegetarians start in induction.

Most vegetarian 'meats' are processed soy, corn and or wheat- none of which are generally low carb. And arguably, Atkins is a whole foods approach to eating, and veggie meat substitutes don't really fit the definition of whole foods.
