Breakfast ideas are only a click away...

http://www.lowcarb.ca/recipes/breakfast.html

There's no reason to feel like you're in a corner with ideas when you're on Atkins. If you have the time some evening, take a good look at the recipe forum.

It does seem like it's easy to get in a rut with the foods, at least it was for me. But the people here really help. I started a thread yesterday about what's on our grocery list. You cannot believe the possiblities of food out there! They all helped me!

**Remember, shakes and bars are not meal replacements. Get some fat and other whole foods. Try to stay away from what we call "Frankenfood", meaning artificial food, for a while.

Hugs, Annie

Default Thank you Annie-Pie

I'll definately check out that website! I read your thread about the shopping lists and took plenty of notes. That was so interesting to see what others buy compared to my list.

As a new "addicted" member I appreciate all the advise i can get

It is interesting to see other's lists, eh?
I have such a tendancy to eat the same ol', same ol'.

Also check out Buddies/Challenges site here, as you can find a buddy. (There's always room here, too)!

Make it a great day!
Annie

I can relate to the same ol, same ol, sometimes I feel like the queen of that.
Although I have gotten creative with chicken and sauces. Ragu, has some white sauces out, garlic, parm etc and they are very low in carbs per serving, so to spice it up, the white sauce comes in handy. Also their cheese sauce is good on some meats.
I downloaded some recipes from the breakfast website and am eager to try, something new

This site is so addicting, it's like a drug, i just cannot get enough of all the insite from all the members. I have been enlightened

I find that some of my old summer clothes from last year are starting to fit!! I REFUSE to buy "fat clothes" for this summer
I never thought months ago, that I could be where I am today weight wise, after the winter feed (too much to keep us warm) out here in WI!

Have a GREAT day Annie

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the poem. My leg had been aching really bad yesterday and I thought I had heard something before about what to take. You reminded me of what that was! Thanks for the help!

If some people suffer some of the stuff that your poem lists such as bruising and bleeding gums from not enough vitamin C, muscle aches from not enough calcium and constipation from not enough fiber, doesn't that say there is something seriously lacking in this diet? I was on another board and the Atkins dieters were complaining about their hair falling out. I really wanted to try Atkins, but afer hearing about all these side effects and experiencing some myself when I first tried it, I wondered about the validity of such a plan. I realize that we can take a whole bunch of vitamin pills, but why do that when vitamins are in real foods such as fruit and vegetables?

Hi Fluffy Bear,

It's all about choices. I choose to follow a low carb eating plan, because while I might need to take some supplements, my over all health is still way better than it was on a low fat diet.

Having said that, it is certainly possible to get all the necessary nutrients from your diet. For example, I suspect those who wind up deficient in Vitamin C are not eating enough Vit C rich vegies. It helps to use Fitday and check "reports" to see how you are doing with the necessary nutrients.

I wrote the poem, because those complaints do happen. I thought it was a simple way to point out what can be done to fix any problems. Of course, I should point out that a huge number of people don't have any problems at all.
The other thing I should point out is that many low fat dieters have similar problems.

Cheers.

Rosebud
