Yeah, this feels good!

My deal is I started Atkins 72 in May 2014. I stayed on induction to goal which was in Jan 2016. Due to some health issues I added more carbs, mostly in the way of vegetables around the end of 2016. I have always had weight issues and finally discovered that I am very carb sensitive and need to keep eating LC for life.

So now I am no longer doing induction levels but still on Atkins 72. Its my WOE and I cant see changing it up again.

I hope anyone on Atkins 72 feels comfortable coming here for support and encouragement!

Id like to stop in and say hello! 😊
My name is JoAnn and I am a long time A 72 believer! During this process I seemed to have stumbled into a pathway with this WOE that finally agrees with me! I am able to add daily LC veggies along with Greek Fage yogurt, frozen berries & the occasional almonds while still remaining in control

So I guess I identify as A72 while climbing the carb ladder.

In the past Ive never found success climbing the often times slippery slope. However, Im hopeful Ive find it this time around. It will always be a daily descision to be mindful of the additional carbs...and still remain in control. Portion control is always in the forefront as well.

Thanks for starting this thread of supporters!

Hey JoAnn, happy to see you join us!

I love your user name ForeverLC. I feel that way too. I have to watch portion control and calories, in addition to carbs.

I eat mostly chicken, fish, egg whites and vegetables. On occasion I have some plain Greek yogurt and blueberries. Right now I am not eating much dairy though. I have a few raw walnuts now and then too. I am working on trying to get my cholesterol down. I eat avocado and use either avocado oil or olive oil. One way to get my veggies in is with a big salad.

Here I am! I want to join this thread, too! I am very very happy to be back and posting. I missed seeing all my old A72 friends!

Hi Joann! I am also a long time A72 believer. It is the ONLY plan that allows me to control my weight and lose.

I am not pure induction, as I allow yogurt and cottage cheese. And the occasional almonds. So I am similar to you, Joann.

I still have a way to go, but this plan will get me there, with the support of all you. I know this thread will help us all!

Hi Paulette,

I am not doing strict induction anymore either. So I am not hardcore. Thats one reason I wanted to start an Atkins 72 thread that includes everyone!

I think we can get a good group going and be supportive to all.

Its so nice to see you back!

So I made the best egg and cream cheese quiche today!

Recipe called for 12 eggs, 1 stick of butter ( I use Kerrygold unsalted) and 6 oz cream cheese. Blended the eggs and cream cheese in my Ninja, sprayed a glass pie pan with Pam, poured in the egg mixture then drizzled in the melted butter. Baked for around 35-40 minutes at 375 degrees. Sliced it in wedges. I should have plenty for meals and snacks during the week.

Good Monday Morning A '72 devotees!

A little back story: Imma one of the HARD Core A '72 Warriors. Haven't changed anything from when I first re-started back on 5 July 2013 b/c Induction level carbs work for me.

So I don't bore you to tears with more, if you're interested in my journey, you can click the "success" button on this post at the bottom right corner...

Anyhoo... dear De, Imma so glad you started a thread that allows every A '72 follower an encouraging, supportive place to kick back and share their experiences! Thanks for that!

BTW: I love your new avatar. Pics of your furbabies always make me smile!

Today is back to school for me after a terrific Spring Break "stay-cation"! Counting down the days until the last day of school... only 35 more to go! Holy Hannah, it's gonna fly by.

I hope everyone has a terrific day!

Hi Angiann, so glad to have you join this group. Some of us are on induction and some are not. I did induction to goal and now I have added a few more carbs!

We are all here to support each other during induction and beyond induction!

I am working to maintain my loss & keep healthy. I have had some set backs with health issues that Ive had to work on.

Thank you for starting this thread, Delaney. I'm in! I read the original 1972 book back in the '70s, and have more recently read and followed the 2002 version. It's really not very different except for more green vegetables at the outset.

What trips me up every time, though, is getting jaded down the road, believing I can have a little bit of this or that once in a while and then it becomes mountains of this or that. I need the support, encouragement and camaraderie of others like me who know the truth, that it works if you stick with it and it doesn't if you don't. There's no way around it.

I don't do induction, either. I don't track or measure. I jumped in at phase/level 2 and do well there.

Thanks again!
