Default here to learn/share

Have an atkins book. Have seen a lot of social media about keto but not entirely sure what the differences are in those diet plans. Struggling with the idea of giving up so many of my favorite things and already thinking about when I can reincorporate stuff I love- questioning whether I can stick to the diet but would love to see the 10-20 lb drop this summer so I'm going to try to eat clean according to the book.

Yesterday we stocked the fridge/freezer with chicken breasts, eggs, canadian bacon, 1/3 lb burgers, cheese, tomatoes, romaine, bell peppers, salsa, and tuna fish.

Wish me luck.

What are your "favorite things"?

Welcome and I wish you "good luck", however there's not much luck involved, just change what you eat

The first few stages of the Atkins diet are ketogenic. Anything under 50g carbs per day will be ketogenic with under 20g being strongly ketogenic, as long as you don't overdo it with the protein.
